In a blog written on a company website, Knicks GM Scott Perry described how his background as an athlete, coach and executive shapes his views and approach as general manager. He offers some insight into his thoughts on the future of the Knicks. "There are no shortcuts," he writes. "Reshaping the Knicks as a championship contender will be a step-by-step process, and along the way, the plan will demand patience, as our young core of Kristaps Porzingis, Tim Hardaway Jr., Willy Hernangómez, Frank Ntilikina and Ron Baker mature. But allow me to add a twist. I don't view my job as an either-or proposition. A general manager — especially in today's world of free agency and player movement — must always have his antenna up for all possibilities." Perry didn't mention any other Knicks in his blog, including Carmelo Anthony, whom the Knicks have hoped to trade.

Looking to bolster their edge pass rush, the Jets have signed DE David Bass, who was released earlier this week by the Seahawks. He played 25 snaps in two games for Seattle, recording one tackle. He also played with the Titans and Bears (5.5 career sacks). Bass could be a nickel rusher for the Jets, who have only two sacks. To make room, they waived LB Freddie Bishop.

Yankees continue success vs. Twins

The Yankees completed a three-game sweep of the Twins with an 11-3 victory on Wednesday, bringing their record to 78-31 (.716) vs. Minnesota since the start of the 2002 season. That is by far the highest winning percentage by a team against a particular opponent, with a minimum of at least 25 games, over the last 16 seasons. The next-closest is the Red Sox's .681 mark (32-15) against the Phillies. (Elias Sports Bureau)

Two days after waiving PR Kalif Raymond, whose muffed punt loomed large in the loss to the Raiders, the Jets have re-signed him to the practice squad. This is a curious turn of events. So much for sending a message. Maybe coach Todd Bowles doesn't like his replacement options on the current roster, Jeremy Kerley and Elijah McGuire.

The frightful Yankee Stadium episode Wed. in which a little girl was injured by a foul ball calls to mind the ongoing concerns of Mandy Coolbaugh, whose husband Mike -- a minor league first-base coach -- was killed 7/22/07 on a liner that struck him in the neck. She says when she and their two toddler sons attended Mike's games, he insisted that they stay in an area with protective netting and that she advocates extending netting at ballparks.

The Dodgers had a chance to clinch the NL West on Wednesday, but instead suffered a third straight loss to the lowly Phillies, who will go for the series sweep on Thursday. The Dodgers are 5-20 over their past 25 games and their magic number remains at two. The Red Sox did clinch at least a wild-card spot with their win and the Angels' loss. Other magic numbers: Red Sox: 8 (to win AL East) Cubs: 8 (to win NL Central) Yankees: 3 (to clinch wild card) Diamondbacks: 4 (to clinch wild card)
