Full disclosure. I stole this. ‘The Bryce is Right.’ I don’t know where, but I saw it, and stole it. Not quite like lifting 330 large from the City of Brotherly Love…but as the silky Bob Barker would say with feeling…”Bryce Harper, come on down!” Last year, .249, 34 homers, 100 ribbies. Good for 13 years. No trade. And no Yankees. How sweet would that stroke have looked aiming for the right field porch….balls clanging off the Judge’s Chambers with impunity! But even the Boyz from the Bronx can’t sign everyone, not when they have their own studs, like Judge, like Torres, coming to an ATM near you very soon. But if you’re a pinstripe fan, here’s the good news. He stays in the National League, where his family will become one with the Rocky statue, as he will morph into a premier DH, and still be under the 40 year speed limit when the contract expires.
But 13 years is a long time. Bar Mitzvah age. And the Phillies not only made him a man…they made him The Man. That’s what the cash will do. Fans will buy, fans will come, fans will tune in. All to see the 330 million dollar man. Who plays for the Phillies. Star power. In the city that has the Sixers. Major star power. Who plays within walking distance of the football team that won the Super Bowl two years ago. While the Knicks win two in a row and callers are apoplectic that they will fall out of the bottom three in the Race to Mount Zion. Where the major football news is can Eli still do it, will he still do it, he better still do it. They pick sixth in the Draft. And the Yankees are thought to be cheap, and the Mets’ ‘long time, first timers’ are already asking who will replace Mickey C if things go south in Brodieville.
John and Suzyn can only do so much.

The head coach from ‘Last Chance U’ has resigned. For a vulgar text. Shocking.

After watching the Johnnies lose to Xavier at Carnesecca…they should never abandon the home floor for MSG for all their games. Because only on campus can the opposing players as well as the officials get the true meaning of ‘I Love NY’!

It’s finally March. Madness…and Bobby Axelrod are warming up in the bullpen.
For all of the tennis afficionados. Sasha Zverev. He’s primed for showtime. This is the year.
As I have said many times…when the Commish says ‘ Come on down’ on Draft Night…do not be sorry if RJ Barrett is behind Door #2.
