With baseball season only a month away, the Mets are preparing for a season that will hopefully end with postseason success.

Many Knicks fans and sports reporters have been critical of Carmelo Anthony and the organizational decision to allow him to play in the All-Star game this year. However, this is not the big problem that some people would lead you to believe.

The 2014 season was a disaster for the New York Giants, especially on the offensive side of the ball. With the ninth overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, the Giants will look to fill one of many holes on both offense and defense.

For the New York Rangers, the trade deadline didn’t just present an opportunity to spend for the case of spending.

The top quarterback in this year’s NFL draft is almost too close to call between Florida State University product Jameis Winston and University of Oregon QB Marcus Mariota.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers “earned” the number one pick with their putrid 2-14 record in 2014 and clearly need a quarterback, leaving only two options: Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota.

With the trade deadline looming, the Brooklyn Nets are looking to relieve themselves of Brook Lopez’s contract, worth $16.7 million in 2016. Despite struggling on defense over the past two seasons, Lopez still has trade value as a center capable of playing at an All-Star level on the offensive end of the court.

Matt Harvey, ace pitcher for the New York Mets, is finally going to return soon. The team made due without him for the entire 2014 season because he was out for Tommy John surgery.

It’s no secret, but the Knicks are a mess. In fact, New York basketball in general is atrocious, and the Big Apple desperately needs the NBA Draft to bring it a savior to pump some blood into the orange and blue heart that makes this town beat.

New York Jets fans may be upset after the firing of their beloved coach, but he and the franchise needed to move forward without one another.
