will giants fans back odell beckham like they did eli manning?

in the most memorable commercial of super bowl sunday, when eli manning hoisted odell beckham jr. high into the air in some nfl-style “dirty dancing,” the giants entertainingly changed the conversation from the doom and gloom of 2017 to blue skies ahead next fall. manning and beckham were the two natural stars to headline the spot: the beloved face-of-the-franchise, two-time super bowl mvp quarterback restored to his starting role after a house-cleaning; and the uber-talented, a-list celebrity receiver whose brand has gone global at age 25, who is hunting a comeback player of the year award coming off injury, and who tantalizingly hasn't even yet reached his prime. but do manning and beckham really engender the same affinity, loyalty and emotions in the hearts of giants f...





michael conforto confident in rehab, but mets remain cautious

port st. lucie — the percentages are in michael conforto’s favor. when doctors told him surgery to repair the torn capsule in his left shoulder would mean it was 99% less likely to separate again, that convinced the mets’ all-star outfielder that he needed to do it. but the mets are trying to mitigate even that small chance that he suffers a setback. the team is taking no chances in a rehabilitation that is filled with “baby steps” forward. the 24-year-old is fine with that — even if that means he might not hit the may 1 target for his return. “as a competitor, it’s tough for me not to look at that date and want to get out there before that,” conforto said tuesday after the mets’ second day of a full-squad workouts. “that’s why we have the great med...





mets plan to start zack wheeler out of the bullpen: source

port st. lucie — shortly after 11 a.m. it started to get crowded behind the cage on field 6 of the mets’ spring training complex. new manager mickey callaway and pitching coach dave eiland watched intently with scouts tom tanous and bryn alderson in the crowd. above, on the second-story, covered deck that oversees every field, former manager terry collins watched. while the big boys of the lineup — yoenis cespedes and jay bruce — were on field 7 facing jeurys familia, all the important eyes were focused on zack wheeler throwing live batting practice. the righthander who is still trying to make a successful comeback from march 2015 tommy john surgery is already in an uphill battle to stay out of the bullpen this spring. tuesday, a mets front office source confirmed ...





yankees acquire brandon drury in three-team deal

tampa — the bronx bombers now have their judge and drury. even as team brass suggested the yankees could go into the 2018 season starting rookies at both second and third, it always seemed like they were going to make a move for a more established infielder. on tuesday night, the bombers did just that, reaching an agreement on a three-way trade to acquire arizona’s brandon drury, a source confirmed to the news. in the deal, which sends rays outfielder steven souza to the d’backs, the yankees dealt infield prospect nick solak to tampa and pitching prospect taylor widener to arizona.yankees on new red sox slugger j.d. martinez: 'it'll be a battle' drury, a 25-year-old capable of playing several positions, hit .267/.317/.447 with 13 homers and 63 rbi last season....

greg bird wants to become more reliable, which yankees need

tampa — greg bird knows the deal. the yankees have stuck with him, injury after injury. but eventually there’s going to be a time when that stops if he keeps getting hurt. “i don’t worry about that,” bird told the news recently. “i just understand the nature of this game. you have to be reliable. i want to be the reliable one, and i’ve been working toward that.” heading into his final pre-arbitration season, the 25-year-old remains the man at first base for the bombers. and the depth behind him remains extremely thin — even after they acquired the versatile brandon drury from arizona on tuesday night. drury has played only one inning at first in the majors.yankees on new red sox slugger j.d. martinez: 'it'll be a battle' and before he entered the p...





rangers trade nick holden to bruins as fire sale begins

the first domino has fallen. the rebuilding rangers on tuesday traded defenseman nick holden to the bruins for defenseman rob o’gara and boston’s third-round pick in the 2018 nhl draft in the first of what should be at least a few deals gm jeff gorton makes before monday afternoon’s trade deadline. the 30-year-old holden will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. he played 135 games as a ranger after he was acquired from colorado during the summer of 2016 for a 2017 fourth-round pick. with the solid return, the rangers now have seven picks in this year’s draft; their seventh-rounder belongs to ottawa, which acquired the pick as part of the mika zibanejad-derick brassard trade from 2016.rangers’ free fall continues in scoring-filled 7-4 loss to flyers

new mlb rules: teams much make pitching change on 7th mound visit

glendale, ariz. — managers or coaches must make a pitching change if they head to the mound for the seventh time in a game under baseball's new pace of play rules. commissioner rob manfred and executive joe torre explained some of the parameters tuesday, one day after mlb imposed stricter limits on mound visits in an effort to speed up games. "i don't see pace of games issues as harsh or not harsh," manfred said during his annual visit to the cactus league. "i see them as a fan friendly issue." torre noted that umpires will keep players from proceeding to see the pitcher if six mound visits have already occurred. "from our perspective it's important to go back to, first, principles. on pace of game, i think the first and most important principle is that pace ...
