EVERYBODY'S DOING IT
Nick Swisher was coerced into covering Carly Rae Jepsen’s song “Call Me Maybe”. Pretty much every sports team has covered this song. This should have stopped when the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders did their rendition of the song which was filled with hot chicks and was done professionally. UNC’s Women’s Lacrosse team did a decent cover with some hot chicks. These need to...

Saturday evening in New York was supposed to be about a horse, a dream and sports history. Eighteen miles east of Belmont Park and a short drive over the Throgs Neck Bridge away, it was a 32-year-old who grew up just a few minutes from Pimlico who stole the show instead.
While I'll Have Another didn't race in the 111th Belmont Stakes, the war horse of Saturday evening was...
From the NYPost:According to an industry source, free agent outfielder Jorge Soler is expected to agree on a four-year deal before tomorrow.
The Yankees and Cubs have expressed strong interest in the 20-year-old, who some scouts believe is a better player than fellow Cuban defector Yoenis Cespedes, 26, who signed with the Athletics.

NEW YORK -- Only a few innings in, the question for Johan Santana became not how many hits he would give up, but how many home runs. The buzz from Santana throwing the first no-hitter in New York Mets history last Friday ended with a thud Friday night in the Subway Series opener at Yankee Stadium. The New York Yankees slammed him back to reality in a 9-1 win as Robinson Cano...
Tonight: Johan Santana (3-2, 2.38) vs. Hiroki Kuroda (4-6, 3.82). Kuroda has a ERA north of 7 in the first inning. The Mets have handed him him 5 times. Santana is going for his 3rd complete game in a row coming off his incredible First Mets no hitter. Saturday: Dillion Gee (4-3, 4.48) vs. Phil Hughes (5-5, 4.96) .Hughes pitched well in his last start.
The Mets were taken down a peg last night by the Yankees in an embarrassing performance by Johan Santana and his mates.
Tonight the Mets look for revenge as Dillion Gee opposes Phil Hughes.
Once again Lucas Duda will DH and Captain Kirk will patrol RF, as the injured Omar Quintanilla will start at SS.
