I was going to write this earlier today, but the first bit of news I saw was the story about Jay Bromley, and, thus decided to put the regular article aside for the time being. Meanwhile, I have nothing to say about Bromley. No judgment to make, and nothing to write about. So onto our usual four.
Giants: The Giants will probably introduce their new coaching staff this week, and McAdoo may or may not have finished his film review of last season. I suppose some cuts and negotiations are on the way ahead of free agency in March. Of course, four of them are playing in the Pro Bowl tomorrow and let's hope they make it out alright. The FO must also be at work on both their FA Board and Draft Board. The Giants have a mind numbing number of roster needs, but also a ton of cap room and the ability to make more.
Knicks: The Knicks have to start the week against the Warriors tomorrow night, then things will, necessarily get easier. You have to like the effort they are giving almost every night, and a run is still not out of the question. What's in the question is whether or not they'll make moves at the deadline, or whether they'll keep their powder dry for the offseason.
Rangers: the Rangers are on their all-star break till Tuesday, and they're another team that has to decide what to do at the deadline. They're still capped up tight and must look at selling or selling while buying. They need to keep playing better. It was nice to see Miller, McDonagh and Kreider starting to come alive before the break. Zucc needed the help, and Hayes was playing better, too.
Yanks: We're going to get a bunch of ARod the mentor stories. And you know what, I bless him for that. And I believe he's really into it. The prospects have largely returned to Tampa and their supervised works out by now and it's just 18 days till pitchers and catchers report. Of course, things can happen in February - like ARod 12 years ago - so stay vigilant.
I'll try to get more posts done this week, but I've been distracted by a few situations. I hope each of you has a great one.
