Morning Coffee! Now, That Is A Monument

Good morning, New York sports fans! Lots to talk about today.

  • The New York Yankees unveiled a massive monument to deceased owner George Steinbrenner Monday night. It was a classy ceremony, and the festivities were capped in the seventh inning when Steinbrenner's granddaughter, Hally Swindel, belted out a solid version of 'God Bless America.'

  • The Yankees then put the punctuation mark on the night by doing what Steinbrenner always demanded that they do, winning a baseball game. This wasn't any game, though, it was an important 8-6 victory over Tampa Bay that stretched their American League East lead over the Rays to 1.5 games. Curtis Granderson, who spent most of the season looking for his swing, hit two home runs and drove in five runs, for New York.

  • For the New York Giants, Monday was all about Brandon Jacobs. While the Giants licked their wounds from the 38-14 pounding they took from the Indianapolis Colts Sunday night, there was rampant speculation that the helmet-tossing, sideways running Jacobs would be asking for a trade. That did not materialize Monday, but Jacobs does meet with Giants brass today. Stay tuned on that one.

  • The New York Jets are feeling much better about themselves after beating New England, 28-14, Sunday. They might be without star corner Darrelle Revis for a week or two, however, as he tries to let his injured hamstring heal.

  • Joe Torre might not get the New York Mets managerial job in 2011, but he said Monday night there is "no question" he would love to have it.
  • ↵
  • It seems the New York Knicks could be on the outside looking in if the Denver Nuggets decide to trade Carmelo Anthony. Reports are that the New Jersey Nets would be the likely landing spot.
