He started the 2015 season in Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and was called up for his major league debut only two months into the 2015 season.

  • Beckham bitter against officiating crew after loss to Steelers

He implied their rocky history has tilted the playing field against him. And he believes they should be banned from officiating any Giants games again. "It's not like I'm sitting here saying the refs are the reason we lost the game, but there's plenty of (bad) calls in the game and anybody can go watch the film. Anybody," Beckham said.

  • Veteran slugger Holliday fits the Yankees' mold

    Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | Archives The Yankees have a plan and signing Matt Holliday as their designated hitter signals they are sticking to it. GM Brian Cashman weighed several long-term and short-term options on the DH market, but the blueprint for the organization screamed one-year deal, to which they settled. The club is not one year from serious World Series contention -- in fact they might be a couple of years away. So long-term deals for a DH made little sense. I was hoping the Yankees would reunite with switch-hitter Carlos Beltran because I felt his left-handed power was a necessity and he was also looking for a one-year deal. Once Beltran signed with the

  • Brilliant dig: Knicks fans chant “Derek Fisher” as Kings’ Matt Barnes inbounds ball

    I had hoped never to write of this again, but alas… remember when Matt Barnes got in a fight with then Knicks’ coach Derek Fisher over the latter spending time with Barnes’ estranged wife? It cost Barnes a couple of game suspension. Barnes is playing well for the Sacramento Kings this season, who were making their annual stop in Madison Square Garden Sunday. As Barnes was inbounding the ball in the fourth quarter, some Knicks fans started a “Derek Fisher” chant. It’s not original, some Pacers fans had done it before. But it’s still a Cameron Crazies worthy ploy. The Knicks got 20 points each from Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose to get the 106-98 win, despite 36 from DeMarcus Cousins.

    Of course Zlatan would score like this. Of course he would. With Maarten Stekelenburg deciding to come off his line and challenge Zlatan Ibrahimovic all the way out at the corner of the box, the super Swede poked the ball with his trademark karate kick. His touch sent the ball looping over Stekelenburg and into the net, but not without plenty of fun. The ball comes down right on the line, bounces straight up into the crossbar, and comes back down still without having crossed the line. As the ball pin-balled around, Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori realized the goal maybe could be kept out, and began to sprint his way back, but the ball slowly bounces over the line just before Funes Mori got
