sonny gray hasn't approached matt harvey territory just yet, but the yankee pitcher continues to be a mess on the mound

get ready for francesa's latest con when pope returns next week

friends and foes of mike (sports pope) francesa won’t have to wait long. he will walk (on water, no doubt) back onto his wfan balcony either tuesday or wednesday to launch his second reign of pomp and pomposity. waiting to greet him – probably on bended knee — will be fan boss mark chernoff, who desperately wanted francesa to return to the papal power chair and, when given the opportunity, dropped dime on cmb (chris carlin, maggie gray, bart scott), giving them absolutely no chance to succeed. so he banished them to playing sharezees with joe benigno and evan roberts. only francesa — who gets a new five-year deal (but has told management he will stay past that) — knows whether he will bless chernoff or any other of his wfan supplicants. they will smile in his fac...

throwing error leads to steven matz implosion, corey oswalt stellar in mets debut

st. louis — steven matz's shortest outing of the season is raising questions. the lefthander could not get out of the fourth inning wednesday and according to mets manager mickey callaway, he essentially let his throwing error unravel into another bad outing."i think you just see two different pitchers. i thought the first two innings was the best i have ever seen him throw in person," mets manager mickey callaway said. "give up one little throw to first unraveled things and he couldn't get it back. we'll continue to work and put him in positions to try and combat that."advertisementcallaway would not clarify if that position was as a starter.

daily news quarterback survey: sam darnold tops among prospects

the experts have spoken: usc quarterback sam darnold, according to a daily news survey of nfl executives, scouts and quarterback and draft gurus, rates as the best of the top five qb prospects headlining thursday night's first round of the 2018 nfl draft. darnold, 20, interestingly did not claim sole possession of first place in any of the five categories posed to the experts polled: best arm, mobility, football iq, durability and leadership. but the survey, which weighted each category equally in creating a composite score for each qb, reflected the widely-held opinion in many league circles that darnold (with an average score of 2.4 out of 5.0 in the five categories) is the steadiest across the board. oklahoma heisman trophy winner baker mayfield (2.8) finished second, foll...

st. louis -- asdrubal cabrera, the mets most consistent player so far this season, was out of the lineup on wednesday with right hamstring discomfort."his hammy was barking yesterday, we decided to get him out of there," mets manager mickey callaway said. "i am sure you guys could see he wasn't moving great in the game. we were kind of monitoring him and we ran for him late."advertisementthis is the same hamstring that nagged cabrera last season. callaway said cabrera felt he could have played, but they were being cautious. he had not had an mri as of wednesday afternoon.it would be a big blow to the mets' lineup if cabrera were to miss any time.advertisementgoing into wednesday night's game with the cardinals leading the national league, cabrera's .349 batting average and was 10th...





reuben foster's girlfriend says she lied about him assaulting her

reuben foster's girlfriend lied to police and was not injured by foster during an incident at his home in los gatos, california in february, her attorney told the sacramento bee in a statement wednesday. the girlfriend's attorney, stephanie rickard, told the bee foster did not assault the 28-year-old woman and she instead suffered her injuries as a result of an altercation with another woman. rickard added there is also video of that confrontation which would help prove foster's innocence.

yankees roll to fifth straight win behind gregorius’ hot bat

the yankees continue to hit — and win — in the bronx. galvanized by third-inning homers from red-hot hitter didi gregorius and solid fill-in tyler austin, the bombers extended their winning streak to five with a 7-4 victory over the twins on a very foggy wednesday night at yankee stadium. gregorius reached base in all five of his at-bats, continuing his torrid start to the 2018 campaign.didi gregorius (left) and gleyber torres helped pace the yankees' offense.(elsa/getty images) gleyber torres added his first career double and made a smart baserunning play to score on aaron judge’s shallow sac fly to right. torres also singled. the bombers’ bullpen recorded the final 13 outs. aroldis chapman recorded his fourth save.sonny gray.(julie jacobson/ap) the yanke...

"i’m seeing improvements, for sure,” drury told reporters in scranton. “something i’ve had for a while is not going to get better in a week. but i’m seeing improvements, and that’s the kind of mindset i’m at."  the 25-year-old is hitting .217 with a homer and four rbis in 23 at-bats. the yankees have been able to more than overcome his absence due to the rise of miguel andujar.twins' logan morrison on yankees fans: ‘you can’t fix stupid’ andujar, 23, has hit .455 with three homers in his last eight games. the yankees entered play wednesday leading the majors in runs and homers. with...





didi gregorius’ historic start is rubbing off on teammates

didi gregorius did it all on wednesday night. but he also had help. gregorius went 3-for-3 with a homer, two walks and two rbis in the yankees' 7-4 victory over the twins at yankee stadium. asked if he'd ever been this locked in before, gregorius replied: "that's the same question as yesterday." gregorius has nine homers and an mlb-leading 29 rbis through 23 games. that translates to an unsustainable but extraordinary 63-homer, 204-rbi pace over a full 162-game season. didi also beat the shift with a slash bunt down the third-base line and made a slick barehanded play to end the game. the rest of the yankee infielders also contributed to the victory.didi gregorius did it all on wednesday night.(elsa/getty images) tyler austin blasted a three-run homer ...





former substitute teacher trevor richards bests clayton kershaw

los angeles — trevor richards has worked as a substitute teacher and in a brewery, just trying to make ends meet while he chased a major league career. he outworked three-time cy young award winner clayton kershaw on wednesday night, and it seems his days of offseason odd jobs to help pay rent might be behind him. richards outpitched clayton kershaw just months removed from working as a substitute elementary school teacher, and the marlins took advantage of a wild outing from the dodgers' ace to beat los angeles 8-6 on wednesday night. richards struck out 10 and pitched one-hit ball over 4 2/3 scoreless innings in his fifth major league start. the former independent league right-hander was pulled after throwing 100 pitches.

mets' rusty staub celebrated as on-field force, humanitarian

outside, the day-long rain was falling as hundreds of mourners began filing into st. patrick’s cathedral to pay their final respects to rusty staub, son of four cities but especially new york. it was here where he played with honor and distinction with the mets, and took care of the multitudes by raising more than $100 million for the widows of cops, firemen and first responders, and served nearly 10,000 meals to the hungry through catholic charities. once everyone was seated and began singing “amazing grace,” timothy cardinal dolan led the mass procession of a dozen priests down the aisle, periodically stopping to thank the people from across the baseball ranks — commissioner rob manfred, players association chief tony clark, mets owners fred and jeff wilpon, former n...

kawhi leonard’s potential spurs split should interest knicks

the summer of kawhi has a head start on the summer of lebron. kawhi leonard is expected to meet with the san antonio spurs in the not-so-distant future, assuming that he is medically cleared by his team of doctors. the knicks should be paying close attention. the most bizarre and unreported story of the nba season involved leonard, who four years ago outplayed lebron james in the nba finals and was named most valuable player of the series. the spurs had their heir apparent to tim duncan. or at least they thought they did. this year, leonard played in nine games and seemed to spend more quality time with his “group” rehabbing his quadriceps injury in manhattan than he did with his teammates in san antonio. although the spurs doctors had cleared leonard to resume playing...
