New England 45, Jets 3.
Ugh. What a revoltin’ development. I don’t mind the loss as much as the way they lost, the lackadaisical mien. You don’t want to say the Jets weren’t trying after awhile, but to the casual observer, they really didn’t seem to put up much of a fight.
Anyway, KK friend Ari sent these links about Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum.
- The Boston Herald ran this profile on Tannebaum, a locat product (Needham).
- The New York Daily News ran this article on Saturday.
And speaking of Jewish general managers, here’s an ESPN item (also courtesy Ari) on Theo Epstein and the Boston Red Sox. Pardon the Interruption co-host Tony Kornheiser asked on yesterday’s show why the Sawx shouldn’t be considered the strongest team in the American League right now and credit must go to Epstein for the construction.
By the way, the writer of the peice is already penciling Ryan Kalish in as the starting right fielder after J.D. Drew’s contract runs out next year.
Kalish, Ryan Braun, and Ike Davis were all included in the MLB Network’s clip show on the greatest defensive plays in 2010; Braun’s was actually one of the top 10. (The careful observer will note in the video that Kalish was set to bat first in the next inning for the Red Sox, continuing the notion that the player who makes an outstanding play leads off the next frame.)
