That means it’s a short swim away from Long Island, which is way too close for comfort. And we were worried about the Atlantic Beach shark sighting!Crocodile WrestlersPartial ScoreA Holtsville man is suing a Mexican golf course where a crocodile ate two of his fingers as he took practice swings. Apparently living on Long Island, where more than a dozen alligators have turned up in the past year, taught him how to instinctively free himself from the jaws while his golf partner wrestled the croc. Still a better story than our last trip to Cancun.Breaking BadOn TargetMurderous meth kingpin Walter White shows what can happen to chemistry teachers who turn to the dark side when they can’t afford the co-pay for their cancer treatments. And what a strange, seven-year trip it was. Withdrawal is hard to take for us fans.Dina LohanOff TargetSomehow managing to one-up her infamous actress daughter’s legal troubles, Mrs. Lohan gets arrested for DWI days before her 51st birthday and two weeks after the bank moves to foreclose on her $1.3-million Merrick home. Oh, and she recanted a claim that she was injured when Troopers took her into custody. After being interviewed by Oprah. We couldn’t make this stuff up.NewsdayOff TargetLong Island’s lone daily newspaper fails to disclose in their coverage and endorsement of Democrat Tom Suozzi in the Nassau County executive race that their parent company, Cablevision, donates to his campaign and hired him after he was unseated in 2009. Instead of issuing their usual comment when we call them out—“we stand behind our coverage”—a Newsday flack declines to comment. The silence is deafening.last_img read more

first_imgThe former MLB All-Star and two-time World Series champ revelead in an interview with the Taiwan Times that he’s mulling a return to the Chinese Professional Baseball League this season. At age 48. Yes, please.”My goal for 2020 is to find a roster spot in the CPBL,” Ramirez said. “I have been itching to get back in the batter’s box and be able to compete again. I also miss being around teammates and team dinners post-game.”MORE: MLB planning radical realignment for potential 2020 seasonThere’s a small caveat to the idea: Ramirez wants to take the field as a player-coach, and doubles down on it by saying he would do “great things for the organization and the league.”Ramirez said that while living in South Florida, he’s been getting his body back in playing shape. While Ramirez last played baseball in 2014-2015, he has experience in the CPBL, playing with the EDA Rhinos in 2013. In 49 games, Ramirez hit eight home runs, pairing with a .352 average and .977 OPS.Ramirez also said he’s gotten offers from the independent Atlantic League, where many former MLB players have stepped into the batter’s box. Manny Being Manny may be coming back to a baseball field near you. Kind of.I’d like to preface this news by saying this: Please, take this news and inject it straight into my veins. If there’s anything the baseball world — nay, the sports world — needs right now, it’s a Manny Ramirez comeback story. “My message to the CPBL clubs would be that I am still confident in my ability to serve as a player-coach and provide positive contributions to any ball club that is willing to have me on their staff/roster,” Ramirez said. “I have been working out daily and keeping my mind at ease, with only one thing in mind — how to get back on the field.”He last played in MLB in 2011 as a member of the Tampa Bay Rays. Ramirez’s career is maligned with PED suspensions, but he is also heralded as one of the greatest right-handed hitters of all time. He belted 555 career home runs and carried a .312 average, finishing in the top 10 for MVP voting every year between 1998 and 2005.If it happens, 2020 is a lock to go down as the weirdest baseball year in history. Please, Manny. Be the light the world needs right now.last_img read more
