Smallthoughts: Rants and Raves

Rants: Roger Goodell… This has been a tough year for the NFL’s Commissioner. Yet once more I’d like to know, how does he get to hand out the suspension to Tom Brady for Deflate gate and then handle his appeal? Usually an appeal is either to someone else of equal or higher authority. What if Brady loses his appeal what does he do then?

Rants: Rex Ryan …Rex is up to his old tricks talking smack up in Buffalo to anyone who will listen, that the Bills will make the playoffs. Let’s see the Patriots are the division champs so that’s one team already in the playoffs then you have the Dolphins and Rex’s old team the Jets who both are improved , the AFC East is the AFC Beast …someone is going to get left out in the cold….Buffalo  cold…get it?

Rants: James Dolan …for hiring Isiah Thomas back to Madison Square Garden. It’s like bring the Rooster in the hen house yet again.My guess is Dolan is testing the waters for  Thomas return to the Knicks if Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher don’t get this team off the ground this season. Things will get scary at the Garden if it doesn’t get better quick.

Raves:Golden State Warriors …survived a Lebron James 40 something point attack to be the Cavs in Overtime. The experience will serve the Warriors better of this series goes deep 6 or 7 games.

Raves: Bartolo Colon…With all the young arms the Mets have the best has been Colon with a 8-3 record. The vet has been steady, this can only help to serve the other pitchers on the Mets staff well as the season goes on.54 strike outs and only 5 walks.

Raves:Joey Gallo… Talk about make it look easy  what a debut by the Rangers rookie third baseman 3 hits 4 RBIs and a walk , what will he do for an encore?
