Good morning, New York sports fans! It is a busy Sunday morning around the regional sports scene, with lots having happened on Saturday and much more to look forward to today. So, let's get started.
Giants (1-1) At Eagles (1-1): New York Has Been Waiting For This One: The Giants are depleted at wide receiver and cornerback. Few people think they can beat Philadelphia today. The Giants have lost six straight and have a bitter taste from last season's fourth-quarter collapse against the Eagles. Today, they try to help erase it.
New York Jets (2-0) At Oakland Raiders (1-1): Jets Play First Of Three Straight Road Games: The Jets face Oakland today in what -- on paper -- looks like the easiest of the three road games the team will play in the next three weeks.
Yankees Vs. Red Sox: Yankees Rout Staggering Red Sox: New York hammered the collapsing Red Sox on Saturday, 9-1, as rookie phenom Jesus Montero homered, doubled and drove in four runs. The Yankees and Red Sox play a split doubleheader today. Let's hope that by the end of the day the Yankees have knocked Boston, 1.5 games ahead of Tampa Bay for the wild card, into a tie for the final American League playoff spot.
Jorge Posada: Does He Belong On The Yankees' Postseason Roster?: We have been debating this topic for a couple of days. Read both sides of the argument, and vote in our poll.
Darryl Strawberry To Jose Reyes: Stay With The New York Mets: Straw opines that Reyes, who can test the free-agent waters this offseason, could regret a decision to leave Flushing.
Syracuse Defeats Toledo In Overtime: The Orange win, but it wasn't easy. And Syracuse got the benefit of a blown call on a extra point to even reach overtime.
Sanu Leads Rutgers Past Ohio: Huge day for the receiver as the Scarlet Knights earn a victory.
Red Bulls Earn Key Victory: New York desperately needed a victory, and the Red Bulls got one, defeating Portland, 2-0. The Red Bulls played without the suspended Rafael Marquez, who had been publicly critical of his team earlier in the week.
