    MLB’s return marked with poor play and deceptive commentary

    This has been a confusing summer. Even my flip-flops keep changing their mind. Clearly, what’s left of this baseball season is being played exclusively for TV revenue.

    All these years later, Gregg Jefferies’ tormentors are apologetic. Time not only heals wounds but changes acceptable traits. How silly it all seems now to care about how someone handled his bats or trained. “He was revolutionary in what he did,” Ron Darling says now, with Jefferies three decades removed from a Mets tenure that …

    Don’t expect Carlos Beltran back in baseball anytime soon: Ron Darling

    Don’t expect to hear from Carlos Beltran anytime, sooner or later. At least that’s what Ron Darling thinks.
