The weather in the Northeast to start the summer is not cooperating. Today will be a rainy one but conditions should improve as the weekend unfolds. Until then, we’ll all be inside looking for something to do. Here are some tidbits from around the blogosphere…
Zach Braziller of The Post outlines the three-way competition heating up at MLB for the Giants this summer. READ
Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN NewYork has the story of DB Terrell Thomas, who is slowly making his way back to the field after missing two seasons due to ACL tears. READ
Jimmy Kempski of Blogging the bEast is surprised that not one team took a flier on WR Ramses Barden this offseason:
“I’m actually a little surprised he was still available. For the first time last year, at least he showed flashes that he can be a productive receiver in the pros. Against the Panthers, he had 9 catches for 138 yards. That game would ultimately account for 64% of his catches and 63% of his yards last season.

Henry Hynoski reportedly was to undergo surgery to repair his knee yesterday. No word on if it happened or how it went.
