NEW YORK — Ousted Rutgers athletic director Tim Pernetti has been named the chief business officer of the New York City Football Club. The Major League Soccer team announced the appointment on Monday. The expansion team is a joint venture that pairs Manchester City Football Club with the New York Yankees. Pernetti served four years as Rutgers’ athletic director before being forced to resign in April for his handling of a scandal involving basketball coach Mike Rice, who verbally abused his players. The popular Pernetti suspended and fined Rice, also forcing him to undergo anger management. University president Robert Barchi fired Rice after viewing films of the abuse four months later and then forced his athletic director to step down. Pernetti, who helped to engineer Rutgers’ entrance into the Big Ten Conference next season, will bring more than 18 years of business and media experience to his new job. He will oversee all business operations for the team, which is set to start play...

Did I miss...

Jeter may be better off sitting

On Friday, I asked Derek Jeter if it would be special to pass Paul Molitor for ninth place on the all-time hits list. Jeter was four hits shy of Molitor at the time, and I was curious if it would mean anything more to overtake a Hall of Famer against whom he once competed. As I expected, Jeter mostly shrugged off the question, saying he only thought about such milestones when reporters...

In a sign that Derek Jeter might not be back anytime soon, the New York Yankees have obtained slick-fielding shortstop Brendan Ryan from the Seattle Mariners for a player to be named.

Rumble In The Bronx: Showalter And Girardi Exchange Unpleasantries

Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter and New York Yankees skipper Joe Girardi exchanged unpleasantries in a heated affair yesterday. The incident apparently stemmed from the Orioles stealing signs, which prompted  Girardi to voice his displeasure to third base coach Bobby Dickerson, which in turn set Showalter go off.
