The Week Meaningful Baseball Returned

The Mets and Yankees — plus all those other teams that play in other cities — broke camp this week, with Joe Girardi's squad heading north to the Bronx for their opening series against Detroit, and Terry Collins's club remaining in Florida for their opening series against the Marlins. And one day into the season, the Yankees have their first victory, thanks to Curtis Granderson and their big-money bullpen. (It took all of one inning, by the way, for fans to take to Twitter to pick on Michael Kay.) The Mets, meanwhile, start their 2011 campaign tonight, with Mike Pelfrey on the mound (but with Jason Bay on the disabled list). But what happened this week that didn't involve "Moose" calls?

The Knicks got a couple of badly needed wins, over Orlando and New Jersey. Carmelo Anthony topped our Knicks Power Rankings.

The Rangers lost to the Sabres and Islanders, while their lead over ninth-place Carolina shrunk to three points.

Andy Rautins and Landry Fields tried out speed dating, while the Late Show paid a visit to Yankees spring training.

We emphasized the importance of Chauncey Billups's recovery.

And we visited Major League Baseball's Fan Cave in the old Tower Records space on 4th and Broadway.

That's it for us. Have a great weekend.
