Saturday night’s preseason game between the New York Jets and the New York Giants was a close one. Rookie quarterback, Mark Sanchez, guided the way for the New York Jets’ 27-25 victory over the New York Giants.

This was Mark Sanchez’s first game since the big decision on Wednesday. Although Sanchez has improved over his last game, it’s hard to say if the decision was a good one or not considering this was only a preseason game. Sanchez completed 10 of 16 passes in the first half for a touchdown and over 115 yards, justifying Coach Ryan’s instincts. It will be exciting to see if the Jets’ head coach, Rex Ryan, made the right choice when the season starts on September 13.

As Sanchez could not have been much more on point, Eli Manning had a tough time with his receivers. Out of twenty-one attempts, he only made nine completions. However, it was not only Mannings fault! The receivers were not always where they needed to be. Also, when Manning through a pass for 60 yards down the middle second year receiver, Steve Smith, dropped the perfectly thrown pass.

It took one extra inning, but the New York Yankees won their opening game against the Chicago White Sox 5-2. C.C. Sabathia held the White Sox back for the first six innings, until they broke through to tie the game in the seventh. Jermaine Dye interrupted the shut out with a double and was able to score after another double from Alex Rios.

In the tenth inning with two outs, the New York Yankees were able to become victorious with a little help from a homer by Robinson Cano. The White Sox pitcher, Randy Williams, was successful in striking out two batters in the tenth inning before walking Hideki Matsui and Nick Swisher. This was the perfect set up for Robinson Cano’s three run game winning homer.

The New York Yankees could not have done it without homers from Derek Jeter and Johnny Damon earlier in the ball game. This was Jeter’s seventeenth home run of the year and 223rd of his career. Damon’s homer was his 23rd which leaves him one homer short of his career high from 2006.

Mark Sanchez, a rookie from the University of Southern California, has just been chosen as the starting quarterback for the New York Jets. First year head coach, Rex Ryan, delivered the news of his tough decision that Mark Sanchez won the starting quarterback job to replace Brett Favre over Kellen Clemens on Wednesday.

At a private workout in Southern California in March, Sanchez caught the Jets’ attention. This is where Coach Rex Ryan found his quarterback. In April, the Jets traded up to take him with the fifth pick in the NFL draft.

Rex Ryan’s decision was certainly not an easy one! Statistically Sanchez and Clemens were performing as well as each other in two pre-season games. Although Mark Sanchez struggled a little bit in the game against the Baltimore Ravens, he has slightly outperformed Clemens.

Sanchez has a tough series of games ahead. On September 13, the Jets will open their regular season against the Houston Texans. He will rely on his tight ends, wide receivers, and the entire New York Jets team when they play at home against New England and Tennessee, then at New Orleans and Miami.

See the first rookie in Jets history to open the season as the starting QB. Get yourself some New York Jets tickets now.

C.C. Sabathia guided the New York Yankees to a 7-2 victory against the Oakland Athletics Tuesday night at the Oakland Coliseum.

During the first two innings of Tuesday’s game it looked like the New York Yankees were headed toward their third straight loss. Luckily, Sabathia limited the Oakland Athletics to only two home runs before shutting them down, allowing the Oakland Athletics to only three hits and no runs over the final seven innings.

“I always want these guys to swing early in the count so I can go deeper in the game.” Sabathia said. “When they scored the two in the first two innings, I was just trying to keep it right there and let these guys come up to have a big inning. They did.” They certainly did, The New York Yankees took the lead in the sixth inning scoring a total of five runs, making the score of the ball game 7-2.

Tonight the New York Yankees will try to do it all over again when they play the Oakland Athletics for a final time in this series before squaring up against the Boston Red Sox on Friday.
