So much for that pitcher' duel in the Bronx Tuesday night between Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Phillies and CC Sabathia of the New York Yankees.
The Yankees bashed three home runs off the Philly ace en route to an 8-3 victory. Sabathia was not great, either, giving back most of a 5-0 lead in the fourth inning. He got through seven innings and earned the win, though. See Pinstripe Alley for more.
The Mets had ace Johan Santana on the mound against the lowly Cleveland Indians Tuesday, and Santana wasn't great, either. He fought through seven innings, giving up four runs, and the Mets survived a a two-run ninth inning home run by Shelley Duncan off K-Rod for a 7-6 victory. See Amazin' Avenue for more.
- The New York Giants opened mini-camp Tuesday, picking up pretty much where they left off in 2009. That's with guys getting hurt. Wide receiver Domenik Hixon limped off with a knee injury in the first workout at New Meadowlands Stadium. The free event was attended by 7,000-10,000 fans. Big Blue View.
- The New York Jets get their turn at the new stadium today. The Jets' contract soap opera is continuing. Cornerback Darrelle Revis intends to apologize to coach Rex Ryan but now center Nick Mangold is ripping the team. Check out Gang Green Nation for more on the Jets.
- The New York Knicks have recruited celebrities to woo LeBron James. Mayor Michael Bloomberg has gotten into the act. Now, New York City kids are making their pitch. The NYheartlebron.com website, which is sort of like a virtual petition you can sign to show you want LeBron in a Knicks' uni, was the brainchild of a par of 12-year-olds, twin brothers Jason and Corey Grant. Gotta love the creativity.
