A smoking-gun e-mail reveals in
detail how NYPD cops were ordered to “sweep” homeless people
from two subway stations ahead of
Mayor de Blasio’s arrival Sunday —
despite officials’ denials that the
directive was given.
Two law-enforcement sources
separately read to The Post a portion of the e-mail Monday to counter City Hall’s claims that the paper’s Page 1 account of the police
action (left) was “not true.”
The e-mail from the Transit Bu-
reau instructed cops from NYPD
Transit District 30 to accompany Hizzoner during a rolling press conference, where he denied responsibility
for the crumbling subway system.
“Once the mayor arrives at the 4th
Avenue station, he will board the
N-B [northbound] ‘F’ train to the Jay
Street-Metro Tech station. TD-30 officers are to escort the mayor aboard
the N-B ‘F’ train from the 4th Avenue
station to the Jay Street station,” the
e-mail says.
“Before the mayor arrives at the
4th Avenue station, the officers are
to sweep the station for homeless
persons as well as the Jay Street station. There will be press at the 4th
Avenue station.”
City Hall spokesman Austin Finan
doubled down on denying the directive Monday, insisting what the
sources are “saying is not true.”
De Blasio, however, told another
story on NY1 later in the evening,
when he said, “I have no idea if that
report is true or not.”

The de Blasio administration
continued to attack Gov. Cuomo
and the MTA on Monday, blaming
mismanagement and waste for the
agency’s woes — prompting a blistering response from MTA boss
Joe Lhota.
“Riders have every right to be
frustrated,” Mayor de Blasio’s office said in a press release that included a vague, five-point list of
“items that New Yorkers deserve
to see in a credible subway turnaround plan.”
City Hall said the agency needs to
provide, among other things, “public performance goals and standards” and “an efficient and fair
MTA budget and a reallocation of
resources towards core needs.”
It specifically suggested nixing
Cuomo’s pet project — light shows
on bridges — to save money.
But Lhota, a Cuomo appointee
who lost to de Blasio in the 2013
mayoral race, dismissed the swipes

as mere “political posturing,’’ adding that things “are getting silly.”
“The mayor has continually taken
the position that the New York City
subway system is not his problem . . .
The city is wholly responsible for the
capital plan and has only contributed
one-third of what the state contributed,’’ Lhota said.
The back-and-forth bickering
comes amid seemingly constant

uty Mayor Anthony Shorris arranged a conference call with reporters Monday, insisting the state
has the funding it needs to fix the
MTA’s aging infrastructure.
There’s “about $2 billion available to fund the MTA through state
money,’’ Shorris said. “We have a
long way to go before anybody has
to start reaching into taxpayers’
pockets.
“Accountability is about where
the buck stops. We’re not the operators — [but] clearly, we see the re-
sults,’’ he said. “It’s not an issue of
more money right now. It’s an issue
of management of the system.”
Lhota retorted, “The mayor yesterday said . . . he’s given us $2.5 billion and we should spend it. He’s
given a commitment of $2.5 [billion]. It’s a lot of work to present
them with the bill and they have to
approve it.”
The MTA is expected to soon release a 30-day review of the entire
transit system, ordered last month
by Lhota on the same day Cuomo
declared a state of emergency for
the agency.
John Samuelsen, president of
Transport Workers Union Local 100,
chided de Blasio on WNYC’s “The
Brian Lehrer Show” on Monday.
“These are his constituents that
ride the subway back and forth to
work every day. He simply can’t
throw his hands up and credibly
say he has no role here. He certainly does,’’ Samuelson said.

Gov quiet on returning party favor to DeB
Mayor de Blasio endorsed
Gov. Cuomo for re-election
months before the Democratic primary in 2014 —
and even helped deliver the
left-leaning Working Families Party line to the governor for the general election.
But six weeks before
de Blasio has to face Demo-
cratic voters, there’s no sign
when — or if — the governor will return the favor.
The Democratic primary
this year is Sept. 12.
Instead, New York’s two
most powerful Democrats
are feuding over mass-transit funding amid a public furor over breakdowns in sub-
way and railroad service.
“Three years is an eternity in politics,” said Richard Brodsky, a former Democratic state assemblyman
from Westchester.
“De Blasio was an absolute essential element of
Cuomo’s re-election politics of 2014. De Blasio was
essential for the WFP endorsement. He was the difference,” Brodsky recalled.
De Blasio not only backed
Cuomo, but came to the aid
of his running mate, Kathy
Hochul, when she was under fire for taking a hard line
on undocumented immigrants as Erie County clerk.
The de Blasio campaign
declined to comment and
Cuomo’s camp wasn’t
talking.
De Blasio is heavily favored to win both the primary and general election.
Cuomo is up for re-election next year.

DNA solves WW2 mystery of lost NYer
By GINA DIADONE
and AMANDA WOODS
A Brooklyn woman has helped
officials identify the remains of
her uncle, a Marine in World War
II, 74 years after he was killed —
using her own DNA.
Nancy Lewis, of Bensonhurst,
sent in her DNA sample 2¹/₂ years
ago, hoping it could lead military
officials to the remains of Pvt. Joseph C. Carbone — who was
killed on Nov. 20, 1943, the first
day of the Battle of Tarawa.
“Nobody thought of giving
DNA, so I called and I asked
them,” she told The Post. “I was
like, ‘I’m still in shock’ . . . Oh, my
God, [my family] is all ecstatic
about it.”
Carbone, who grew up on Gold
Street in Brooklyn Heights,
wanted to join the Marines when
he was 17, but his mother wouldn’t
allow it, his nephew Joseph Caramanica said. She finally let him go
when he turned 18.
About a year later, the family received a telegram saying Carbone
was missing in action.
Six months later, Carbone’s
mother, Nancy, saw a newspaper
article with a photo of a blind
nurse on a plane aiding the
wounded — and was convinced
that one of the men was Carbone,
said his niece, Maryann Filippelli,
who lives in Florida.
Nancy even went to Washington, DC, in an attempt to confirm
the picture but was told “the information on this boy cannot be
established,” Filippelli said.
Carbone’s great-niece, Christine
Caramanica Robinson, said Carbone always claimed he would
never return home to his mother
“if he ever was disfigured.”
“They thought he may not have
wanted to come home, because
God forbid he may have had a
limb amputated. That was kind of
always her hope that she’d find
him,” said Robinson, who lives in
Moncks Corner, SC.
Two years ago, former Marine
Ted Darcy and commercial pilot
Mark Noah of the Florida nonprofit History Flight found a mass
grave containing the remains of 35
Marines and one sailor, including
Carbone.

are pending, according to Pentagon officials. He will have a wake
at Scarpaci Funeral Home in Bensonhurst and be buried at Calvary
Cemetery in Queens, Filippelli
said.
Filippelli said her mother, Anna
Caramanica, who died about nine
months ago at 89, would have
been “on cloud nine” to hear her
brother’s remains had been identified.
“First of all, she wouldn’t have
believed it,” she told The Post.
“When everything came out, she
would’ve been like, ‘Now I could
die.’ She always said she wished
her brother would come back before she died.”
And Filippelli said she is sure
her grandmother, Nancy, would
have felt the same way.
“My grandmother always said
[her son was] going to walk
through the door,” she said. “Little
did we know, he was going to
come through the door in a different way.”

Two Italian brothers were arrested Monday for allegedly robbing dozens of cash machines while
wearing President Trump masks.
Turin police said the men, ages 26

bank robbers don masks of US
presidents.

A pilot project that uses technology to sync up MTA buses with
traffic lights — turning signals
green faster as the buses approach
— is about to expand, much to the
chagrin of other drivers.
The program has been operating along five bus routes since
2006, and the vehicles’ times
have improved so much that the
city is now planning to install the
technology at 1,000 intersections
citywide by 2020, officials said
Monday.
But drivers’ advocates say the
move will just make traffic even
more congested than it already is.
“We know mass transit in this
city is a disaster and something
needs to be done, but if you do it
at the expense of other vehicles,
you’re serving nobody,” said New
York Taxi Workers Alliance Executive Director Bhairavi Desai.
Uber driver Oscar Martinez
agreed.

A social worker who was
slashed in the face in the East Village last year blasted his attacker’s
lack of remorse as “nauseating
shamelessness” in court Monday.
“I have moments where I’m really filled with anger at what you
did to me, and that
this took so long
and what seems
like your nauseating
shamelessness,”
Anthony
Christopher Smith
(top) told defendant Francis Salud
(bottom), 29, who
took a plea deal in
exchange for 14
years in prison.
“If it was up to
me, you’d be in jail
longer,” continued
Smith, 31, in Manhattan Supreme
Court.
Salud, without provocation,
slashed Smith’s face Jan. 16, 2016,
as he walked along East Sixth
Street near Third Avenue, and left
him for dead, blood gushing from
his mouth and neck.
Smith, who had been on his way
to meet a pal, will likely need
more surgeries in the future.
Salud had been out on bail at the
time of the slashing for slicing an
acquaintance with a knife in a dispute over cigarettes on Oct. 18, 2015.
He copped to two counts of assault as part of the plea deal,
which covered both cases.

GOAL’D RING FOUND
By RICH CALDER
A scuba­diving treasure hunter who found an American Hockey League Hall of Fame ring in one of New York’s Finger Lakes returned it to its owner on Monday. Gary Gavurnik of Auburn found the ring with a metal detector in Canandaigua Lake over the Fourth of July weekend. It belongs to Dick Gamble, 88, who played for the AHL’s Rochester Americans be­
fore retiring in the 1969­70 sea­
son. Instead of wearing the ring, he gave it to his son, Craig, who wore it every day for
seven years before losing it in the lake. He never told his dad and ordered a replacement. AP
Mayor de Blasio’s attempt to
pressure a city agency to give favorable treatment to a major campaign donor was condemned by
his Republican and Democratic
challengers Monday — and even
by Democratic insiders who routinely take the mayor’s side.
“It’s outrageous . . . There’s
enough here to warrant another
investigation,” said Nicole Malliotakis, the presumptive GOP
nominee for mayor.
“This screams of pay-to-play
corruption,” agreed Democratic
candidate Sal Albanese.
Even Democrats who usually
defend the administration were
taken aback by the claims of former Deputy Commissioner
Ricardo Morales and former
Citywide Administrative Services Commissioner Stacey Cumberbatch that the mayor and his
staff pressured them to give a
break to a restaurant owner who
owed the city back rent but was a
big campaign donor.
“This is insane,” said one Democratic pol. “It’s certainly not
normal procedure, and you have
to wonder how the investigations would’ve played out if this
was known earlier.”
De Blasio personally tried
helping Harendra Singh cut a
deal on nearly $750,000 in rent
owed on the now-defunct Water’s Edge restaurant in Queens,
which sits on city property, according to The New York Times.
In an extraordinary move, the
mayor asked his top political
aide, Emma Wolfe, to intervene
with the Department of Citywide Administrative Services,
which was run by Cumberbatch
before her abrupt departure.
Morales, who was fired suddenly, filed a $5 million notice of
claim filed against the city — a
precursor to a lawsuit.
Reps for both the US Attorney’s Office and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.
declined to comment.
De Blasio spokesman Eric Phillips claimed the allegations are
old news and that they had been
reviewed by authorities who decided not to pursue cases when
they dropped their investigations in March.
The mayor reiterated the oldnews line on NY1 Monday night,
saying “It’s been looked at and
there is just nothing there.”
He also denied Morales was
fired because he didn’t do what
City Hall asked.
“Exactly false,” de Blasio said.
“There were real issues with his
performance.”
He added, “I know what I did
and what everyone around me
did is we were trying to follow
the spirit of the law. . . What is
the alternative? That we are not
supposed to send something
over to an agency? That’s crazy.”
Meanwhile, Morales’ lawyer,
Robert Morales, told The Post,
“It is clear that City Hall actively
hindered the [Department of Investigation’s] past investigation
into [the sale of] Rivington
[nursing home] . . . It is also clear
that Ricardo objected to the bla-

tant conflict of interest violations surrounding City Hall’s involvement with Singh.”
Singh cooperated with the feds
in their investigation of de Blasio’s fund-raising after being
slapped with unrelated bribery
and tax-evasion charges.
He and his relatives donated
more than $27,000 to de Blasio’s
2013 campaign. Singh was later
named to the advisory board of
the Mayor’s Fund to Advance
New York.
Critics say the Water’s Edge
case is the latest evidence of the
favored treatment campaign donors get at City Hall.
The Post previously reported
that in January 2014, a watermain break knocked out utilities
at a Greenwich Village building
owned by donor Roberta Kaplan.
She contacted BerlinRosen, the
mayor’s public-relations firm,
and inspectors showed up the
next day.

Ducks murder rap in fiancé slay
By RUTH BROWN
A woman who admitted she
pulled the plug from her fiancé’s kayak and said she was
“euphoric” as she watched him
drown in the frigid Hudson
River dodged murder and manslaughter raps Monday, taking a
plea deal for a lesser charge of
criminally negligent homicide.
Angelika Graswald, 37, would
have faced 25 years to life in
prison if convicted at trial for
Vincent Viafore’s 2015 death but
now could get just 16 months to
four years behind bars.
And with time served, the
sentence could see her released
on parole as soon as December,
her lawyer said.
The deal comes despite Graswald’s stunning admissions to
state police, which a judge had
allowed into evidence.
“I wanted him dead, and now
he’s gone,” she said during an
11-hour interrogation in 2015.
“And I’m OK with it.”
Orange County prosecutors
had charged her with second-degree murder and manslaughter,
claiming she wanted to cash in
on Viafore’s $250,000 life-insurance policy. Viafore, 46, would
have been her third husband.
The DA’s office has said Graswald refused to help him when
his kayak capsized on their April
19, 2015, outing to Pollepel Island,
50 miles north of New York City.
She “moved the paddle away
from him as he was struggling
to stay afloat with water tem-
peratures in the 40-degree
range, and failed to render him
assistance, including timely
calls for help,” the office said.
Asked in the interrogation
why she wanted Viafore dead,
the Latvian immigrant performed yoga poses and said, “I
wanted to be free.”
She said their relationship became strained when he pressed
her for “sexual stuff.”
“He wanted threesomes,
porn, everything,” she said.
The missing kayak plug was
recovered from the center console of the car Graswald was
driving, prosecutors said.
But she had maintained that
Viafore drowned because he
was drunk — not because of the
missing plug — and claimed she
was just telling the cops what
they wanted to hear to get out
of the interrogation.
“I was at my breaking point. I
just, I had it. So I just gave ’em
what they wanted,” she told
ABC’s “20/20” in 2015.
But on Monday, Graswald tear-
fully admitted removing the plug
and watching Viafore drown.
She said that she knew a ring
was missing from his paddle,
and that he was not wearing a
life vest or a wet suit, according to prosecutors.
Both the prosecution and
defense claimed victory in
Monday’s plea deal.
“While no outcome can
compensate for the loss [to
Viafore’s family], this disposition will hopefully bring a

Prospect’s nutty squirrel is likely dead: city
Prospect Park-goers can rest
easy — Cujo the squirrel has
probably perished, a city health
official said.
The “possibly rabid’’ rodent,
which attacked five people in the
Brooklyn oasis between last
Tuesday and Thursday, hasn’t
been heard from since.
“The squirrel is likely dead,”
said Sally Slavinksi, a rabies expert with the city Health Department.
Rabies is a progressive, deadly
virus that dehydrates the brain,
and the stage when its victims be-
come demented and aggressive
usually signals the end is near.
The crazed critter attacked
park-goers — including a 7-yearold girl — near the entrance at
Parkside and Ocean avenues.
There have been no known
cases of squirrels passing rabies to
humans in the United States, the
department has said.
Parks Department staff and the
Prospect Park Alliance are continuing to monitor the park for the
squirrel and any other animals
that it may have bitten and infected.

BUSTED: James Matthew Bradley arrives at court in San Antonio Monday.
Ten died in his stifling rig (right); he says he didn’t know they were there.
By KAJA WHITEHOUSE
and NATALIE O’NEILL
The immigrants inside a sweltering tractor-trailer that left 10
dead on a Texas highway last
weekend struggled to breathe by
taking turns sucking air through a
single small hole in the side of the
vehicle, according to a federal
complaint filed Monday.
The frantic passengers pounded
on the walls of the truck to draw
the attention of driver James Matthew Bradley — but were unable
to get him to stop as they slowly
asphyxiated inside the dark space,
federal authorities said.
The group of migrants — which
included children — started suffering soon after the start of their
150-mile trip from Laredo to San
Antonio, one survivor said.
“After an hour, I heard . . . people
crying and asking for water,” 27year-old Adan Lalravega said from
a hospital bed. “I, too, was sweating and people were despairing.
That’s when I lost consciousness.”
On Monday, officials slapped
Bradley, 60, of Clearwater, Fla.,
with charges that could get him
the death penalty. He claims that
he had no idea people were inside
the back of his truck.
“The driver never stopped,” the
complaint states, citing accounts
from victims. “People had a hole
in the trailer wall to provide some
ventilation and they starting taking turns breathing from the hole.”
Authorities on Sunday discovered the bodies of eight dead men
inside the crowded 18-wheeler
parked in the 100-degree summer
heat. Two more victims died at the
hospital, and the death toll is expected to rise, as more than a
dozen remain in severe condition.
Bradley told investigators he had
been hired to transport the big rig
from Iowa to Brownsville, Texas.
He claimed he only discovered he
was hauling migrants when he
parked at a Walmart in San Antonio to use the bathroom.
He said he heard banging and
opened the trailer door and was
“surprised when he was run over
by ‘Spanish’ people and knocked
to the ground,” according to the
federal complaint.
Horrified, he looked inside and
spotted bodies sprawled out, “just
lying on the floor like meat,” the
complaint states.
Bradley claimed he tried to help
the passengers but authorities
noted he failed to call 911. Instead,
he called his wife, they said.
Some of the undocumented immigrants hid out in a “stash house”
for 11 days before entering the
truck, the complaint states.
One passenger, identified only
as J.M.M-J, told investigators that
he and a group of 28 others
crossed the Mexican border into
the US illegally on three raft trips
and paid $5,500 to be taken by
trailer north, according to the federal complaint.
“The next day at 9 a.m., group
was picked up by a silver Chevrolet Silverado truck and taken to
the trailer that he later traveled in.
He stated his group was the last of
a larger group that was already inside,” the complaint states. “He estimated that there were already
about 70 people inside.”
The passengers waited for hours
without food or water in the hot
truck before it took off, according
to authorities.
At one point, a man opened the
door and told the passengers not
to worry because it would be refrigerated, the complaint said.
Bradley allegedly told investigators that he knew the trailer refrigeration system didn’t work and
that the four ventilation holes
were probably clogged.
San Antonio Fire Chief Charles
Hood described the terrible scene.
The victims “were very hot to
the touch. So these people were in
this trailer without any signs of
any type of water,” he said.
Bradley appeared in court Monday and was charged of illegally
transporting immigrants for financial gain, resulting in death.
US Magistrate Judge Elizabeth
Chestney told Bradley he could
face the death penalty if convicted.

Prez goes
‘sleazy’ on
probe rep.
President Trump and the top
Democrat on a House panel
probing Russia’s interference in
the 2016 election went at it on
Twitter on Monday.
Trump began by blasting Rep.
Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) for appearing on TV news shows to
talk about the investigations.
“Sleazy Adam Schiff, the totally biased Congressman looking into ‘Russia,’ spends all of
his time on television pushing
the Dem loss excuse!” Trump
wrote.
It didn’t take long for the California Democrat to respond with
his own zinger. “With respect
Mr. President, the problem is
how often you watch TV, and
that your comments and actions
are beneath the dignity of the office,” Schiff responded.
Schiff, a member of the House
Intelligence Committee, told
CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday that “the president is very
concerned about” special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Trump has called the probes a
“witch hunt.” devised by Democrats upset that he won the election.
Earlier Monday, Trump took
his criticism about Washington
to a new level: “Drain the
Swamp should be changed to
Drain the Sewer - it’s actually
much worse than anyone ever
thought, and it begins with the
Fake News!” the president
tweeted.

Dems offer
‘Better Deal’
Democratic leaders traveled to
rural Virginia on Monday to tell
working-class Americans President Trump doesn’t have their
back — but they do.
They unveiled a new 2018 campaign platform called “A Better
Deal” and argued that they can
deliver higher wages, lower consumer costs and better training
opportunities if voters return
them to power.
“President Trump campaigned
on a populist platform talking to
working people . . . But as soon as
he got into office, he abandoned
them,” Senate Minority Leader
Charles Schumer said in Berryville, home to Virginia’s 10th
Congressional District, which
Democrats hope to win in 2018.
“We Democrats are going to fill
that vacuum.”

‘KUSH’BACK
Sessions could be
Cruzin’ for a bruisin’
By MARISA SCHULTZ
and RUTH BROWN
President Trump took another
potshot at his attorney general
on Monday, describing Jeff Sessions as “beleaguered” and
questioning why he isn’t going
after Hillary Clinton’s “crimes.”
“After 1 year of investigation
with Zero evidence being
found, Chuck Schumer just
stated that ‘Democrats should
blame ourselves, not Russia,’ ”
Trump tweeted.
“So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of
course our beleaguered A.G.,
looking into Crooked Hillarys
crimes & Russia relations?”
The Washington Post reported later that Trump and his
inner circle were discussing
Sessions’ possible replacement,
with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and
Rudy Giuliani being mentioned
as candidates.
But both say they’re not interested.
“I’m so busy with my private
law practice and security business it would impossible for me
to leave right now,” Giuliani told
The Post.
And Cruz released a statement
‘BELEAGUERED’: Attorney General Jeff Sessions (left) is under
fire. Ted Cruz (right) is being eyed for the job, but doesn’t want it.
late on Monday saying, “The stories being reported in the media
tonight are false. My focus is and
will remain on fighting every
day to defend 28 million Texans
in the US Senate.”
Cruz, once a staunch Trump
opponent, became a loyalist after the presidential election —
although the Texas senator has
praised Sessions as “a man of
honor and integrity” over his
recusing himself from the probe
into Russia’s election meddling.
Giuliani also said Monday he
thinks Sessions made the right
decision to recuse himself from
the Russia investigation — and
has told Trump as much.
“I thought it was the correct
decision under the Justice Department regulations,” he said.
“I thought he consulted with
the ethics counsel and he made
the right decision. I have told
the president that.”
But Trump disagrees. Last
week, he publicly blasted the
Sessions recusal decision as
“very unfair to the president.”
“Sessions should have never
recused himself, and if he was
going to recuse himself, he
should have told me before he
took the job and I would have
picked somebody else,” Trump
told The New York Times.
The president had a chance to
defend Sessions — the first US
senator to back his candidacy —
later on Monday, but he didn’t
take it. Reporters, ushered into a
photo op with Trump and White
House interns, asked the president, “Should Sessions resign?”
But Trump just rolled his eyes
as the interns laughed, and told
them, “They’re not supposed to
do that.”
Sessions was at the White
House on Monday but didn’t
meet with the president, according to press secretary Sarah
Huckabee Sanders.
Sessions had offered his resignation last month when the
president privately was expressing misgivings about him.
But the offer was rejected.
Last week, Sessions said he
plans on staying “as long as that
is appropriate” and is “completely confident” he can continue leading the Justice Department.
And Giuliani said he doesn’t
think the president will ask Sessions to resign. “I don’t expect it
at all,” he said.
Don goes WaPostal over Syria story
President
Trump
blasted and appeared to
threaten the Washington
Post in a series of tweets
Monday night, after the
newspaper ran a story on
his Syria policy.
“The Amazon Washington Post fabricated the
facts on my ending massive,
dangerous,
and
wasteful payments to Syrian rebels fighting Assad,”
Trump wrote in
the first of a
three-tweet
storm about the
paper at around
10:30 p.m.
The paper had
just published a
story online saying, “Cooperation with Russia
becomes central to Trump
strategy in Syria.”
The story said
Trump’s
policy
“essentially carves
up Syria into no-go
zones for each of
the players —
President Bashar
al-Assad’s fight,
with Russian and
Iranian
help,
against rebels seeking to
overthrow him, and the
US-led coalition’s war to
Commander
in tweet
destroy the Islamic State.”
The article also noted
that “last month, Trump
ordered the shutdown of a
years-long CIA program
to train and arm the antiAssad rebels,” and recalled how Sen. John McCain of Arizona criticized
the plan.
Trump continued to decry The Washington Post
as “Fake News” in a tweet
saying the paper is “being
used as a lobbyist weapon
against Congress to keep
Politicians from looking
into Amazon no-tax monopoly?”
Amazon — whose CEO,
Jeff Bezos, owns The
Washington Post — is
seeking federal approval
of a $13.7 billion deal to
buy supermarket Whole
Foods.

Trump adviser
Jared Kushner prepares
to speak with
senators
Monday.
Senior White House adviser
Jared Kushner vehemently denied Monday ever having “improper contacts” with Russian
officials — and said his father-inlaw defeated Hillary Clinton because he had a “better message”
and “ran a smarter campaign.”
“Let me be very clear: I did not collude
with Russia, nor do I know of anyone else
in the campaign who did so,” Kushner
said in a rare public appearance outside
the White House after a nearly threehour closed-door meeting with the Senate intelligence committee.
“I had no improper contacts. I have not
relied on Russian funds for my businesses. And I have been fully transparent
in providing all requested information.”
Just after the meeting, a smiling Kushner told reporters that he answered all
questions asked and it went “very well.”
On Tuesday, he’ll face a grilling from
House investigators who are leading their
own investigation into Russian meddling
in the 2016 election.
Kushner chalked up President Trump’s
election victory to the way he ran his
campaign, not Russian influence.
“Donald Trump had a better message
and ran a smarter campaign and that is
why he won,” the former real-estate developer said.
“Suggesting otherwise ridicules those
who voted for him.”
Ahead of his testimony to Senate staffers, which was not made under oath,
Kushner released an 11-page statement, in
which he outlined four meetings with
Russian representatives during the campaign and transition period.
As for the controversial June 2016
meeting with Russian-American attorney
Natalia Veselnitskaya — which was arranged by his brother-in-law, Donald
Trump Jr. — Kushner said that it was a
“waste of time” and that he tried to leave
after 10 minutes.
“When I got there, the person who has
since been identified as a Russian attorney was talking about the issue of a ban
on US adoptions of Russian children,” he
said, adding that he had arrived late to
the sit-down.
“Reviewing e-mails recently confirmed
my memory that the meeting was a waste
of our time and that, in looking for a polite way to leave and get back to my work,
I actually e-mailed an assistant from the
meeting after I had been there for 10 or so
minutes and wrote, ‘Can u pls call me on
my cell? Need excuse to get out of meeting.’ ”
Kushner also recalled a meeting with
then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak
at Trump Tower in December 2016, saying they discussed the Syrian confict and
the desire to improve US-Russian relations. “I did not suggest an ongoing secret form of communication for then or
for when the administration took office,”
he said.
“I did not raise the possibility of using
the embassy or any other Russian facility
for any purpose other than this one possible conversation in the transition period.”
Kushner also met with Russian banker
Sergey Gorkov on Dec. 13 but “no specific
policies were discussed,” he said.

Durst ‘attack’

:
Real-estate heir Robert Durst attacked one of his friends without
warning before his wife disappeared — viciously kicking him in
the face with a pointed cowboy
boot — in what prosecutors described as a precursor to her presumed murder.
The unprovoked assault came to
light Monday during the pretrial
testimony of Peter Schwartz, the
alleged victim.
Los Angeles prosecutors called
the Connecticut therapist to the
stand in hopes of tying the violent
incident to the unsolved disappearance of Durst’s wife, Kathy, who
went missing in 1982.
Schwartz claimed it was January
1981 when the attack went down at
a party in Manhattan.
He testified that after the assault, Kathy told him and the others who were at the party that
Durst owned a gun and wasn’t
afraid to use it.
Prosecutors later told the judge
that they believed Kathy went
home that day and got into an argument with Durst over the incident, right before he presumably
killed her.

HOLY WATER

President Trump gave a rousing speech to tens of thousands
of Boy Scouts in West Virginia
Monday evening, blasting former President Barack Obama,
grousing about the media and
telling a tale about yachts and
cocktail parties.
“Tonight, we put aside all of
the policy fights in Washington,
DC, you’ve been hearing about
with the fake news,” Trump told
the crowd at the National Boy
Scout Jamboree. “Who the hell
wants to speak about politics
when I’m in front of the Boy
Scouts?”
Trump told a tale about a successful home builder who
wasted his fortune away on indiscretions.
“I’ll tell you a story that’s very
interesting to me. When I was
young, there was a man named
William Levitt,” Trump said. “He
went out and bought a big yacht
and he had a very interesting life.
I won’t go into that because
you’re Boy Scouts. I’m not going
to tell you what he did — should
I tell you?”
Trump eventually conveyed to
the Scouts — who cheered heartily for the president — how Levitt lost his fortune after spending
too much time away from his
business.
“He lost his momentum. He
took this period of time off —
years — and then when he got
back he didn’t have the same momentum.”
Trump also regaled the Scouts
with his unlikely election victory
over Hillary Clinton.
“You remember that incredible
night with the maps?” Trump
said. “Michigan came in. And we
worked hard there. You know,
my opponent didn’t work hard
there. She was told she was
gonna win Michigan and I said,
wait a minute the car industry is
going to move to Mexico.”
The president continued to
thank the Scouts for helping him
reach the the White House —
even though the kids are too
young to vote.
“What we did in all fairness is
an unbelievable tribute to you
and all the millions and millions
that came out to Make America
Great Again,” he said.
Trump even convinced the
Scouts to boo both Clinton and
Obama, whom he jabbed for not
attending a jamboree.
“By the way, just a question,”
Trump asked. “Did President
Obama ever come to a jamboree?”
The Boy Scouts then booed the
former president and chanted,
“We love Trump.”
The president also assured the
crowd that there would be
plenty of cheer this Christmas
season.
“Under the Trump administration, you’ll be saying Merry
Christmas again when you go
shopping,” Trump said.
“They’ve been down playing
that little beautiful phrase.
You’re going to be saying, ‘Merry
Christmas’ again, folks.”
The president also added a
note about the importance of
loyalty.
“As the Scout law says, a Scout
is trustworthy, loyal,” Trump
said. “We could use some more
loyalty, I will tell you that.”

McCain in DC return Axing Price a ‘joke’
Sen. John McCain will make a
dramatic return to the Senate
Tuesday for a make-or-break
vote on Republican health-care
legislation, just days after being
diagnosed with a brain tumor.
The decision by the 80-year-old
senator to travel to Washington
from his Arizona home was announced by his office in a brief
press release late Monday night.
It comes with the GOP health-
care bill to repeal and replace
ObamaCare on the brink as Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
pushes toward the pivotal vote.
McCain’s return suggests
McConnell believes Tuesday’s
vote will be successful with the
Arizona senator there.
McConnell (R-Ky.) said he has
“made a commitment to the people I represent” to undo Obama’s
health-care overhaul.
AP
President Trump joked on
Monday that he would fire
Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price if the Republican health-care measure fails to
get enough votes.
The former “Apprentice” host
made the reality TV-esque crack
during a speech at the National
Boy Scout Jamboree in West Virginia.
“Hopefully, he’s going to get
the votes tomorrow to start on
the path to kill this thing called
ObamaCare,” Trump said. “He
better get them, otherwise I’ll
say, ‘Tom, you’re fired.’ ”
Price, who was standing near
Trump and has no say in the
vote, seemed to take the quip in
good humor.
The Senate is scheduled to
vote Tuesday on the legislation.

“THE Real Housewives of New York City”
could become more diverse for its upcoming 10th
season — according to insiders close to the show
who tell Page Six that the search will be on for a
minority cast member.
“After nine seasons, the show’s been very white,
and in the most diverse, melting pot of a city,”
says one insider of the New York show, who
added that Bravo will angle to make the cast more
diverse. The insider said, “They just shot the reunion — so now is the time [that] they start really
looking at what they’ll do with the next cast.”
Another source close to the cast told us, “New
York is such a diverse city. The show should definitely reflect that.”
Star Bethenny Frankel — a close confidante
of Bravo exec-turned-host Andy Cohen, who
has his ear — recently said she’s in favor of shaking things up, telling Parade this month: “I would
like to see some younger cast members. I’d like to
see an African-American woman on the show. I
suggested someone who didn’t work out. There
are really no Jewish women in the cast. There are
also no Asian, Latino or gay women on the show.
I’d like it to represent New York more.”
The show added Jules Wainstein in Season 8,
whose tagline was, “A Jew and an Asian walk into
a bar . . . Then they had me!” Carole Radziwill
groused on-camera of the newcomer, who exited
after just one season, “She’s Asian and Jewish, but
you don’t have to remember that ‘cause she’ll tell
you, like, two dozen times.”
A source told us that whoever joins for Season
10 will likely be someone already associated with
the women on the series. “Unless you’re famous,
you really have to be friends with someone on the
show to get cast,” the source said.
Like Frankel, we hear that veteran cast member
Luann D’Agostino has also suggested a pal as a
possible castmate.
For its current season, the show added onetime
top socialite Tinsley Mortimer and has been on
a ratings roll by regularly winning the Wednesday cable ratings, according to Nielsen numbers.
A Bravo rep did not get back to us.

spotted over the weekend in the audience of “Hi, Hitler,” an off-Broadway show that’s billed as “a pinch of
Hitler, a cup of hip-hop and a dash
of Hasselhoff.” The one-woman
play by Bertolt Brecht’s grandniece
Lucie Pohl follows “a German-Jew,
who grows up in a wild family of
artists, is fascinated by der Führer
from age 4 and uprooted from Hamburg to NYC at 8.” Allen — who’s
taken his own comedic shots at the
Nazi leader in movies such as
“Zelig” — was mobbed by fans.
BROOKLYN Beckham — the 18-year-old son of David and Victoria whom Page Six reported is dating YouTube star Madison Beer —
is looking for an apartment in New York, we hear. Brooklyn — who
just released a photography book, “What I See” — is “looking to take a
bite [out] of the Big Apple,” a source dishes. “He’s searching for a space
of his own in New York. He’s planning on moving there next month to
pursue his photography career, among other things.” But the celebrity
scion will be bicoastal “to pursue his relationship with Madison.” Beer
was discovered by Justin Bieber online in 2012. Meanwhile, we hear that Brooklyn’s little brother Cruz,
12, is in LA working on an album as a follow-up to
the Christmas single he dropped last year. A
source tells us that Cruz has “recorded some
covers, including [of] Mumford & Sons, and is
working on writing original material with Stephen Puth, brother of Charlie Puth. Charlie
will come for a few sessions to accompany on piano.” But a rep insisted Cruz has just “been working on his guitar lessons during his LA holidays.”

SEN. Kamala Harris downplayed
her presidential ambitions during
meetings with Hamptons Democratic power donors over the weekend, a source said. We hear Harris
said at one address: “Nothing matters
unless the Democrats can make gains
in 2018.” But an insider who saw her
speak told Page Six: “Kamala was really impressive — she clearly is the
new voice of the Democrats. She’ll
deny it, but she came to the Hamptons because she is developing a national profile. She certainly wasn’t
there to hang out at the Golden
Pear!” Page Six exclusively reported
that the California pol headed to the
Hamptons to meet with bigwigs including Harvey Weinstein and past
Obama bundler Michael Kempner
— at whose home Harris spoke of
her party’s challenges after last year’s
losses: “We need to speak the truth
and be authentic, no matter how
much that may make people uncomfortable.” She urged Democrats “to
stand for their core values.” Guests
included Jay Schneider, Charles
Meyer and Robert Zimmerman. A
spy said Harris commented on the
investigation into possible White
House ties to Russia by saying: “I am
concerned that Robert Mueller will
be fired as special counsel, but the
Senate will continue the investigation.” She was also seen meeting with
Weinstein and Georgina Chapman
at EMP Summer House.
IS actor Mickey Rourke going back
to his bad-boy days? The star owes the
owner of his former Tribeca loft $30,000
in unpaid rent and nearly $10,000 in
damages — including the unauthorized
installation of “disco light fixtures”—
according to a lawsuit. Rourke stopped
paying rent for his sprawling pad at 114
Franklin St. in October 2016, a suit filed
by the landlord claims, reports The
Post’s Julia Marsh. The star, 64, missed
the next two months of payments until
his lease ran out on Dec. 31, the Manhattan Supreme Court suit says.
Rourke also allegedly left holes in the
walls, broke the lock, damaged the
bathtub and installed “disco light fixtures” that required electrical work to
dismantle. He first rented the two-bedroom in November 2014 from Crosstown Realty Holdings under an 18month lease. He extended the lease in
April 2016. His rep did not immediately
respond to messages seeking comment.
Rourke allegedly broke furniture in a
$5,000-a-night suite at the Plaza in the
’90s, causing $20,000 in damages.

The Department of Education is illegally denying a
Downtown Brooklyn charter-school operator space in
nearby district buildings —
even though they’re filled
with hundreds of unused
seats, according to the
school.
The International Charter School of New York
sought an additional 100
seats for next year in District 13 to accommodate
the growing demand for
its fledgling network.
But school officials said
the DOE rejected their requests for proximate accommodations, and instead
offered them space in distant Flatbush.
ICS stressed that city data
show 10 school buildings in
its vicinity with at least 300
vacancies. Half of them, ICS
said, have maintained that
level of disuse since 2012.
“It’s befuddling,” said ICS
Executive Director Matthew
Levey. “You can argue about
the specific numbers, but
there are a lot of vacancies.
We just need 100.”
Levey cited state law requiring the city’s DOE to
place charters within a reasonable distance of their
host community.
Shipping students off to
Flatbush, he said, would
fracture the school’s cohesiveness.

Ten French teens are accused of

The teens, who are between 13

worked very hard to get
started and recruit families
and build relationships — to
be told to go all the way to
Flatbush is really disappointing,” he said.
The DOE countered that
ICS made its placement request after an application
deadline and that the agency
is trying to accommodate
ICS for next year.
“We have been in constant
communication with ICS,
and while the school’s latest
request for additional space
was made last month, well
past the March deadline for a
co-location proposal, we are
working to ensure students
have access to a suitable
learning environment this
fall,” said DOE spokesman
Michael Aciman.
Levey said that the DOE
and Mayor de Blasio justify
space-request rejections by
claiming to have plans for
non-charter
enrollment
growth at buildings with vacancies.
“If someone is saving
these schools, it’s not happening in a time frame that’s
acceptable to parents and
students,” he said. “This is a
school where parents and
students are happy. This
doesn’t seem progressive.”
The DOE has stressed in
past co-location tussles that
vacancy rates are in constant flux and that empty
seats are just one of many
factors it considers when
weighing placement.

TYPE FACES: Maryam Nawaz (left), daughter of Prime
Minister Nawaz Sharif (right), is at the center of a scandal
that turns on a font invented by Lucas de Groot (center).
Wrong-year font fuels Pak PM scandal
By DAVID K. LI
A common typeface used millions
of times a day across the world
could be the key in bringing down
a political dynasty in Pakistan.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif
has been under fire for years, accused of using government funds
and connections to enrich his
family — allegations fueled by
the Panama Papers leak in 2015.
One item on the laundry list
of riches allegedly accumulated by Sharif’s clan is a luxury
pad in London, tied to daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif, 43.
Maryam insists she doesn’t own
the flat, and produced a Feb. 2,
2006, document showing her as a
mere trustee of a larger company
that really owns the apartment.
The problem for Sharif’s family is that the document she
produced was printed in Microsoft’s Calibri (in which this story
is printed) — a font that wasn’t
widely available until 2007.
Dutch typeface designer Lucas de Groot, who designed Calibri 15 years ago, is suddenly the
unlikely star witness in the case
against Sharif’s family. He said
the document is probably fake.
“In my opinion, the document in
question was produced much later
[than 2006],” de Groot wrote in response the questions about Maryam
Nawaz Sharif’s disputed document.
De Groot said there is a remote possibility someone from
a small community of “computer nerds” and “font lovers”
could have used Calibri in 2006.
But he seriously doubts it, telling The New Yorker, “Why would
anyone use a completely unknown
font for an official document?”
De
Groot
recalled
being
asked by a secret client to create a font that would be easy
to read on a computer screen.
That clandestine client turned
out to be Microsoft, and Calibri is
still one of the primary fonts available to users of Microsoft Office.
De Groot admitted he has
been entertained by “Fontgate,” unfolding a world away
from where he lives in Germany.
This incident “has definitely
generated the most publicity for
Calibri, ever” because “people usually take fonts for granted,” he said.
De Groot has also relished his
chance to defend Calibri, which
detractors have called boring.
“If you’re eating soup, you
shouldn’t remember the shape
of the spoon,” de Groot said.
The Supreme Court of Pakistan, which is independent from
the prime minister, held hearings
into Sharif’s alleged corruption
last week and could move to have
him kicked out of office anytime.

How German-born Ritchie Boys helped

HE slight American soldier
sat down across from the
tough old Nazi sergeant.
The German wasn’t talking.
Only name, rank and serial number. The American had an idea.
“How is it,” he asked the German, “that a tough old soldier like
you was captured by inexperienced Americans like me?”
The Nazi unleashed a stream of
invective. The American asked
him questions, and got answers.
Finally, the German stopped.
“Of course, I know you can’t read
a US military map,” said the American, producing a tactical diagram
of nearby German positions. “Of
course, I can!” roared the Nazi, and
proceeded to show the American
everything he wanted to know
about the German regiment.
The American was a trained interrogator, part of military intelligence. His name was Werner Angress, and he had been born Jewish, in Germany. How he and
other German-born Jews came to
serve as American soldiers may
be the last great unknown tale of
World War II.
I
N the 1930s, as Germany grew
increasingly hostile to Jews,
many Jewish families tried to
leave the Nazi state. And many of
their efforts were stymied — by
lack of money, by vindictive German authorities and by the nearly
closed borders of countries like
the United States. Often, a Jewish
family could afford to send only
one of its children — usually the
oldest male — at a time.
Those Jewish children, mostly
teens, settled as best they could
in America, cut off from their
families and what was once their
home. When the United States
entered the war against Germany,
many of these German-born Jews
jumped at the chance to help
their new country — and to help
their families still in Europe.
Some of these enlisted Germanborn Jews were selected for special

In researching the book and
speaking to surviving Ritchie
Boys, Henderson tells The Post,
“I was in awe that these guys
would go back . . . I was amazed
at the humble courage that they
showed, time and again.”
No small amount of courage was
needed for their work. Typically,
small IPW teams were attached to
forward units of American forces,
to have access to fresh information from newly captured German
soldiers. Recently captured soldiers, disoriented, scared and
hungry, were more likely to talk.
T
HE Ritchie Boys knew what
they were doing. Interrogations were in every sense a
mind game, and at Camp Ritchie,
the young soldiers were taught
how to best their interrogatees
without using force. There were
four basic interrogation techniques: “superior knowledge,”
“form of bribery,” “find common
interests” and “use of fear.”
The interrogator would first
overwhelm the prisoner with
their vast, detailed knowledge of
the German military. This would
often get a new prisoner talking,
since the interrogator seemed to
know everything already. (As part
of their training, Ritchie Boys exhaustively studied the ins and outs
of the enemy forces. They had to
commit much of it to memory.)
The bribery tactic would have
the interrogator consume a coveted item — usually chocolate or
cigarettes — in front of the prisoner, and share only in exchange
for information. In finding common interests, the interrogator
would chat amiably with the prisoner, developing a rapport, and
thus lower their guard.
And lastly, fear. Sometimes it
was enough to put a .45 on the table, conspicuously; other times,
more creative methods were
used. One IPW duo invented a
fake Soviet official named Commissar Krukov (one of them
dressed up in a borrowed Soviet
uniform) who threatened to send
uncooperative prisoners to Siberia. The German POWs seemed
to fear that more than anything.
The interrogators were instructed never to torture, or even
touch, their prisoners. Doing so
would violate the Geneva Convention on Warfare, which they tried
their best to observe. It made tactical sense: Intelligence gathered under physical duress is typically bad
intelligence. But the Ritchie Boys

followed a moral code, as well.
Henderson says the Ritchie Boys
principle was, “If we did something like that, that would make us
as bad as them. And we weren’t
those guys. We were Americans.
We were not going to do that.”
Still, Henderson was astounded
by their self-control, marveling,
“My god, did they have the motivation to treat these German prisoners badly.”
T
HE front line was, of course, a
perilous place for anyone. But
for the Ritchie Boys, there
was an extra danger: Should they
fall into German hands, the Nazis
would spare no cruelty for German-born Jews now fighting for
the US. Knowing this, many of the
Ritchie Boys changed their names
to sound less Jewish, and gave
themselves “American” back sto-
ries they would tell in the event of
capture. They would claim to be
Protestants, right down to putting
“P” on their dog tags, as opposed
to “H” for Hebrew. If captured by
the Nazis, the telltale “H” would
be a death sentence.
Henderson tells of Kurt Jacobs
and Murray Zappler, two Ritchie
Boys from the 106th Infantry Division who were captured by
German forces in December 1944.
One of their former German
POWs, newly liberated, identified
Jacobs and Zappler as “Jews from
Berlin” to a German battalion
commander. That commander, a
Nazi among Nazis, declared,
“The Jews have no right to live in
Germany.” Then he sent the two
men to a nearby field, where they
were cut down by a firing squad.
After the German surrender in
the spring of 1945, IPW teams
stayed on in Europe. They translated for occupation authorities,
and they interrogated war criminals. Most heartbreakingly, they
helped liberate the concentration
camps the Nazis had built to exterminate their people. Most of
those who had left family behind
before the war would never see
their loved ones again.
At this point in history, what
might be most remarkable about
the Ritchie Boys is how littleknown they are. Henderson
thinks there are a number of reasons why their stories haven’t received the attention they should.
“First of all, they were military
intelligence,” he says. “They
couldn’t even reveal to their families that they were working for
military intelligence, or what
their job was. Secondly, when
they graduated, they were put
into very small teams that were
then attached to larger units, and
so they didn’t serve with a lot of
other guys like themselves . . . so
they were kind of isolated.”
afAnd that isolation continued af­
Gerter the war, because these Ger­
man-born Jewish soldiers “were
man­born
quite different from the guys after
asthe war who joined veterans as­
sociations and had reunions.”
HenderThe Ritchie Boys, Hender­
Gerson observes, “still had Ger­
man accents. They weren’t
the type to go around and join
those groups and have reunions
and share stories.”
vicBut their contribution to vic­
tory is undeniable. One Army
study estimated that almost 60
colpercent of the intelligence col­
inlected in Europe came from in­
terrogations conducted by
Ritchie Boys.
As one Ritchie Boy, Gunther
Stern, said, “We were fighting an

The parents of 11month-old Charlie Gard
tearfully dropped their legal battle to send the terminally ill British boy to
New York for experimental treatment — saying it
is “too late” to work.
Chris Gard and Connie
Yates wept as they withdrew their appeal during a
London High Court hearing, ending a five-month
legal saga that garnered
international sympathy.
The couple’s attorney,
Grant Armstrong, said recent tests on Charlie
showed the baby has irreversible muscular damage, and the new treatment wouldn’t help.
“It’s too late for Charlie.
The damage has been
done,” said Armstrong,
adding that the parents
now “wish to spend the
maximum amount of time
they have left with Charlie.”
A distraught Yates said
Charlie could have lived a
CHARLIE GARD
“Too late” for treatment.
normal life if he had been
given treatment earlier.
“This is the hardest thing
we’ll ever have to do,” she
said in court, where Judge
Nicholas Francis had been
due to hear final arguments as to why a hospital
should not turn off Charlie’s life support.
“We have decided it is
no longer in his best interests to pursue treatment,”
Yates said. “We have decided to let our son go . . .
Charlie did have a real
chance of getting better.
Now we will never know
what would have happened if he got treatment.”
Her plaintive words
drew tears from many in
the courtroom.
Charlie suffers from a
rare genetic condition
causing progressive muscle
weakness and brain damage. His parents wanted
him to undergo experimental therapy in the US,
where the House Appropriations Committee last
week unanimously passed
an amendment to grant
them permanent residency.
London’s Great Ormond
Street Hospital argued the
treatment would only
cause the child pain. Britain’s courts, backed by the
European Court of Human
Rights, refused to let the
family travel to the US.
In her statement Monday,
Yates said, “Mummy and
Daddy love you so much,
Charlie . . . We are so sorry
that we couldn’t save you
but we weren’t allowed to.
“Sweet dreams, baby.
Sleep tight, our beautiful
little boy,” she added.

punitive,” Tom Finkelpearl, New York’s commissioner of cultural affairs, told The New York Times
in 2015 regarding the city’s decision to survey local arts and cultural institutions about the diversity of their boards and staffs.
“The administration is committed to diversity as a general goal,”
he explained reassuringly.
Well, so much for that. Last
week the de Blasio administration announced that any city
government funding for these
institutions would actually be
tied to their diversity.
Let this be a lesson, then, if you
instinctively dismiss as paranoid
concerns about the government
collecting information without a
clear purpose. While there’s no
formula for exactly how much
money will be redirected, Mayor
de Blasio explained that the fact
that only 26 percent of senior
staff members at cultural organizations are people of color is a
problem that needs immediate
attention.
The mayor has a tendency to
Where it counts: Museums like the Met have diverse art, if not staff.
ence, and officials want to increase funding for smaller
neighborhood institutions rather
than giving all the money to the
usual suspects. According to
CreateNYC, the cultural plan the
mayor’s office released, higherincome New Yorkers are 20 percent more likely to participate in
cultural institutions than lower
income ones.
So what? They’re also more
likely to visit the gym, but apparently the mayor hasn’t decided
to pay for a New York Sports
Club in Bed-Stuy. Yet.
The report also cites the fact
that three quarters of city residents wish they could participate more often. But museums’
affordability and staff racial diversity aren’t what’s keeping
them away. It doesn’t cost any
more to visit the Brooklyn Museum than it does to go to the
movies. Were there not enough
New Yorkers able to afford a
ticket to Wonder Woman?
Unfortunately, New York City
isn’t alone in trying to collect
such information. GuideStar, the
charity evaluator that recently
tried to attach a “hate group” label to various conservative nonprofits, also recently launched
an effort to collect diversity data.
And a number of larger philanthropies have supported such efforts. The Ford Foundation actually provided much of the funding for the CreateNYC plan.
But these, at least, are private
entities. There is nothing com-
pelling nonprofits to provide
Ford or Guidestar with such information.
That’s not true for the city. “Any
moment for equality and inclusion doesn’t come easily,” said
City Council Speaker Melissa
Mark-Viverito. “There are people
who will resist, who will resent,
who will obstruct,” in what
sounds like a veiled threat against
those who don’t like the plan.
Still, there may be some hope.
Ten years ago, the California legislature debated a bill that
would’ve required the state’s private foundations to report publicly to the percentage of their
dollars given to “minority-led”
organizations and the percentage
of their boards and staffs made
up by racial and ethnic minorities. Even progressive foundations balked at this infringement
on their autonomy and privacy.
The bill was ultimately dropped,
and not another peep has been
made about it since.
The mayor might face a similar dynamic with some of the
most powerful and well-established (albeit left-leaning) arts
and cultural leaders in the city.
In making his announcement, de
Blasio told reporters: “We’ve got
a long way to go. We’ve got more
work to do.” To which these
leaders might reply: What do
you mean “we”?

Washington’s conventional wisdom has long been that an “axis of
adults” — National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, Secretary of State
Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary James Mattis — would serve as a
“counterweight to the populists such as senior strategist Steve Bannon,”
notes Eli Lake at Bloomberg. “But like most conventional wisdom in the
Trump era, it’s not exactly right” — McMaster “has become estranged
from Mattis and Tillerson,” which means “he has seen much of his influence over the policy-making process diminished and has become isolated
inside the government.” For an NSA, “this is deadly” — the job “is next to
impossible if the adviser isn’t seen as speaking for the president.” All of
which helps explain “why foreign policy so far has been chaotic for the
Trump administration.”
Historian: The Tragedy of John McCain
John McCain “never reached the White House” because, says Jeff
Greenfield at Politico, he was “fated to miss the presidency because, in
two different campaigns, he was out of sync with
his party, and then the broader citizenry.” In 2000,
against George W. Bush, he ran “as an apostate” on
tax cuts as well as “matters of war and peace.”
Eight years later, he won the nomination with “a
unique, complex set of beliefs” but committed “one
of the worst mistakes of his career”: tapping Sarah
Palin for vice president over his first choice, Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman. Then the financial crisis doomed his campaign. But in an “age of waxfigure animatronic politicians,” McCain remains “a
man in full.”
John McCain
Foreign desk: Trump Team Repeating O’s Syria Errors
Trump administration officials “consistently point back to the Obama
administration’s failed Syria policy to justify their approach,” notes Josh
Rogin at The Washington Post. But while they “inherited a terrible hand,”
they’re repeating “the same fundamental mistakes made by President Barack Obama” with likely “the same negative results.” He and Secretary of
State John Kerry repeatedly “said Russia’s willingness to be a constructive partner in Syria must be tested. Over and over, Russia proudly failed
that test.” Yet the Trump team seems to be following the same formula —
and “ought not to repeat Kerry’s chief mistake, which was to negotiate
with Russia without leverage.” Says Rogin: “Rather than simply blaming
Obama and Kerry for the mess, this administration should learn the lessons of that failure.”
Conservative: Stop Enjoying Life, Say Greenies
The “Merchants of Misery — a k a climate scientists — are working
overtime to shame you about all the pleasures you’re enjoying this summer and how your selfish indulgences will cause the planet’s demise,”
warns Julie Kelly at National Review. Two new studies list “many of the
sacrifices you should make to reduce your carbon footprint,” including
having one fewer child. Other suggestions “include eating a plant-based
diet, living car-free and avoiding air travel,” and even “keeping backyard
chickens, letting your lawn grow longer, and hanging your clothes outside to dry.” So your life “should look something like this: stuck at home
without a car, washing laundry in cold water and then clipping it on a
clothesline while chasing down chickens and preparing locally grown
vegetables for dinner.”

Even as New York’s subway system is melting down, says Seth Barron at
City Journal, Mayor de Blasio “has assumed and embraced the role of a
hapless bystander, shrugging his shoulders at what he insists is not his
problem.” He’s not entirely wrong — “but he isn’t totally right, either.”
The MTA “by design requires cooperation among its board members and
the elected officials who name them,” including the mayor. But “unless
some individual bears final responsibility for making the trains run on
time, then everyone can hide behind shared authority.” Yet “even if he
does not have direct control of the subway system, there are things de Blasio could do to alleviate the crisis, or at least keep it from getting worse.”
Besides, “what kind of mayor makes a virtue of his own incapacity?”

Straphangers care a lot more about getting

De Blasio was the latest offender, with

Keeping Corruption Consistent
ay this for Mayor de Blasio’s pay-to-play
scandals: At least they follow a regular
pattern.
The latest dirt comes from a former deputy
commissioner — winner of an ethics-in-government award! — who intends to sue the
city, saying he was fired because he objected
in two cases where City Hall helped grease
the bureaucratic skids for fat-cat donors.
Ricardo Morales says he got the ax after
objecting to Team de Blasio’s “lack of truthfulness” in lifting a deed restriction, letting
the owners of a Lower East Side nursing
home reap a $72 million profit.
He also cites City Hall’s objections to his
efforts to collect $747,000 in back rent owed
by a well-heeled restaurant owner, Harendra Singh, who also got top-level help on a
deal to save him millions more.

didn’t speak up all those years that this mess
was brewing.
As for the supposed issue of how much
the city and the state will have to fork over
for repairs: Wouldn’t it be nice to have a cost
estimate before going to war?
Exactly who has what theoretical obligation will matter a lot less than who has
whatever cash is needed.
None of which excuses Team Cuomo for

eagerly taken the credit in happier times.
The simple fact is that the system needs

makes a pretty good case that his firing (after 22 years in city government) was meant
as a warning to other whistleblowers.
The moment he took office, de Blasio
started doing favors for donors that go far beyond what regular New Yorkers can expect.
Like Roberta Kaplan, who maxed out as a
de Blasio contributor and got super-fast service (just 24 hours) after a water-main break
knocked out her utilities.
Or Joseph Dussich, who after eight years
of trying suddenly got City Hall business
once he gave $100,000 to de Blasio’s now-defunct Campaign for One New York.
Meanwhile, we’re still waiting for that
long-promised list from City Hall of bigbucks donors who didn’t get favors.
De Blasio’s right about there being two
New Yorks — but it’s one for his well-heeled
benefactors and another for everyone else.
Riots to Order
he Palestinian Authority has provoked a
new Temple Mount crisis, bringing riots
and deadly attacks on Israelis.
The pretext: Israel placed metal detectors
at the entrances to the Temple Mount, a
holy site for Jews and Muslims alike. But Jerusalem has been responsible for security
there for decades, and the new protection
was a direct response to the recent killing of
two Israeli police officers by three Israeli
Arabs using weapons smuggled onto the sacred ground.
PA officials chose to paint it as a Jewish plot
to seize more control of the Temple Mount,
which Jordan has administered for decades.
“If Israel persists with these electric metal
detectors, we will ask the Palestinian youth
to step up their protests against them,” said
Hatem Abdel Qader, head of Jerusalem affairs for the PA’s ruling Fatah party. “We will
come en masse to put pressure on these detectors and we will pray outside the mosque
and in the streets to prove that Israel isn’t respecting freedom of worship and faith.”
Funny: Saudi Arabia has 5,000 CCTV
cameras watching over Mecca, with no impact on freedom of worship. And Jordan this
year briefly proposed putting its own cameras on site.
Yet Palestinian leaders still got their desired “Day of Rage” outside the site on Friday, with protesters throwing rocks, fireworks and firebombs at security forces.
Three rioters were killed in the clashes.
That night, a Palestinian broke into a home
in the West Bank settlement of Halamish
and fatally stabbed three civilians.
More protests exploded across the Muslim world. And an assault in the Israeli Embassy compound in Amman, Jordan, on a security guard proved fatal for one of his attackers but deepened the crisis.
Early Tuesday, Israel agreed to remove the
metal detectors and use less-intrusive security measures. Sadly, that will keep the peace
only until Palestinian leaders decide they
need to order up more riots and invent some
new “wrongdoing” to place at Israel’s feet.

De Blasio’s Subway Stunt

Mayor de Blasio takes
the cake on photo ops.
He rode the subway on a
Sunday, when it was
much less crowded than
usual, and had the stations cleared of any undesirables who might
ruin the picture (“Blas

This guy is as phony as
a $3 bill, but he isn’t fooling anyone. My guess is
he had to get a lesson on
how to use the MetroCard so he didn’t look
foolish like Hillary Clinton, who couldn’t figure
out how to swipe at a
turnstile.
The sad part is that after running up millions in
legal bills while in office
and reversing the great
things that Rudy Giuliani

Raising holy hell: Palestinians clash with Israeli police in Jerusalem.
safety of UN metal detectors.
This isn’t about metal detectors.
For the longest time, Palestinian
Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has utilized al Aqsa to manufacture Palestinian and Muslim
rage. Cynically whipping up religious rage has always worked in a
pinch for the man who has trouble
holding the attention of the “Arab
street.” Indeed, Abbas has never
acknowledged Jewish ties to the
Western Wall — or any place in Jerusalem, for that matter.
This time, Abbas was so outraged he announced the Palestinian Authority would be cutting all
ties with Israel, including security
cooperation. (Spoiler: It’s an
empty threat. That cooperation
keeps him in power, and alive.)
Given all that, is it really reasonable to expect Israeli leaders to anticipate and acquiesce to bogus
complaints at the risk of Israel’s
own security?
Well, in part.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu quickly approved the
metal detectors on recommendation from his police force. He
brushed off warnings from other
security quarters — his own intelligence officials and army brass —
who warned that visible detectors
would ignite more outrage than
was worth it for the amount of security the magnetometers provide.

UNIONS’ UGLY ‘SEGREGATION’ SMEAR
R
ANDI Weingarten, president of the
American Federation of Teachers, is
paid not to tell the truth about school
choice. She deserves a raise.
In a speech last week, she purported to
uncover the racist roots of the schoolchoice movement in “massive resistance”
to school desegregation in the 1960s. She
noted that segregationist politicians in
Prince Edward County, Va., notoriously
shut down the public schools rather than
integrate, and set up a private-school system that white kids could use tuition grants
and tax credits to attend.
“Make no mistake,” Weingarten said, by
way of prefacing not just a mistake, but a historically perverse smear, “this use of privatization coupled with disinvestment are only
slightly more polite cousins of segregation.”
Therefore pro-school choice Education Secretary Betsy DeVos bears an ideological relation to George Wallace.
Weingarten must know that no one in the
school-choice movement looks for inspiration to Prince Edward County, even if she
doesn’t let that stop her.
The intellectual seed of school choice was
first planted in 1955 by Milton Friedman, the
late Nobel Prize-winning libertarian economist never mistaken for a bigot. Friedman
believed widely available vouchers would
create new dynamism in a state-dominated
sector characterized by stasis.
The real-world political impetus for
choice has been developing alternatives to
rotten public schools for poor minority
kids without other options.
The first notable law came in
the late 1980s in Minnesota,
championed by its Democratic
governor, Rudy Perpich, and
passed by its impeccably progressive legislature. It permitted parents to
send their kids to school districts where they
didn’t live with public money. The liberal
American Prospect reported at the time that
supporters of the reform included “1960s-era
‘open school’ progressives.”
Then came an experiment in Wisconsin
to provide poor parents assistance to send
their kids to private schools. Polly Williams, an African-American state assemblywoman from Milwaukee, became a
high-profile advocate of choice. A Black
Panther and the state chairman of Jesse
Jackson’s presidential campaign, Williams
was open about her “pro-black” views and
even said in private she didn’t much like
white people. Harry Byrd, the Virginia
champion of “massive resistance,” she was
emphatically not.
From these beginnings, choice has burgeoned into the educational mainstream.
Half of states have private
school-choice programs, and
more than 40 have charterrich
lowry school laws. They don’t aim to
take white kids out of integrated schools, but to take minority kids out of underperforming defacto segregated schools.
Weingarten used to head the teachers
union in New York, where her nemesis was
Eva Moskowitz, the founder of the Success
Academy Charter Schools. Moskowitz is a
Democrat who happens to believe poor
kids deserve better than what they get in
the traditional public-school system.
According to the New York Post, her 41
schools enroll about 14,000 kids, almost all
of them minorities. The demand is vast: An-
nual waiting lists exceed 10,000 families.
The analogue for today’s choice programs
aren’t the segregationist academies of Prince
Edward County but the efforts by black leaders to bypass a system long designed to deny
their children a proper education. “An analysis of American history,” a recent piece in
The Atlantic related, “indicates that the use
of private means was a critical aspect to ensure quality education for African Americans legally excluded from access to public
institutions.”
Today, black kids aren’t legally excluded
from the best schools but legally bound to
failing ones. In her speech, Weingarten bizarrely compared defenders of the status
quo — amply funded by union dues, and
embedded in entrenched bureaucracies —
to David and the reformers fighting for every inch to Goliath.
These are the words of a woman who
knows the other side has the moral high
ground and the only way she can try to regain it is through obfuscation and tortured
rationalizations. Hers, in short, is the voice
of someone who is losing — and deserves
to.

B
EING right isn’t always
enough. And, as Israel is learning the hard way amid continued violence in Jerusalem and
beyond, sometimes it isn’t even
close.
Here, for those too busy with
Washington scandals, is a recap of
what officials in the Washington
and the Middle East will try to prevent from turning into a holy war:

Last Thursday, three Israeli Arabs shot and killed two Jerusalem
cops. The assailants then retreated
to Islam’s third holiest site, the al
Aqsa mosque compound. Israel
later released evidence the killers,
and perhaps others, used the compound to hide weapons.

After briefly shutting the compound, Israel installed metal detectors at the entrance. Palestinian
leaders cried foul, urging the
masses to shun the “defiled”
mosque and flood the streets instead in “peaceful” demonstrations. Hamas called for active “resistance.” In the ensuing violent
clashes with police, three Palestinians were killed, hundreds injured.

On Friday night, a Palestinian
man entered a home in Halamish, a
West Bank settlement, gruesomely
stabbing to death three members
of the Solomon family as they sat
at their Sabbath dinner table.

Over the weekend, anti-Israel
demonstrations spread across the
Muslim world, from Morocco to
Malaysia. A synagogue in Turkey
was besieged. Israeli embassies
were under lockdown.

In Amman, Jordan, a local carpenter working near the Israeli
Embassy tried to stab a security
guard Sunday. The guard shot and
killed his assailant, who quickly became a local hero — a martyr “for
al Aqsa.” After holding the embassy
staff and demanding the guard
stand trial in Amman (in violation
of international conventions guaranteeing immunity), Amb. Einat
Shlein and her entire staff arrived
in Israel Monday evening.
The whole thing sounds crazy.
Are they really going to start World
War III over metal detectors?
Yes, it’s a holy site. But so is
Mecca, which has metal detectors.
And the Vatican. And many buildings in Manhattan and around the
United States.
Yet on Monday the UN Security
Council convened an “emergency” session on this new “threat
to international peace and security” — and did so behind the
New York Post, Tuesday, July 25, 2017
Malice on the Mount
laterally, failing to coordinate with
his Palestinian and Jordanian counterparts. Jordan, after all, manages
the mosques as a result of an arrangement dating back 50 years,
and which Bibi swears to keep.
Remember: Israel is a democratic Jewish anomaly in a despotic, largely Muslim region,
where religion is used as a weapon
and where emotions, not facts, are
currency. Jerusalem needs to calculate its moves with extra caution, and leverage regional alliances more effectively.
Also, we’re talking about a country that prides itself in finding creative, unconventional solutions to
universal problems. Devices like
hidden cameras that can use facial
recognition to identify potential
troublemakers, for example, may
well provide better security than
those ugly gates we’re so used to
seeing everywhere else.
That approach seems to have resolved the crisis. First son-in-law
Jared Kushner and special envoy
Jason Greenblatt were said to be on
the case, having helped secure the
release of Israel’s embassy officials.
And Israel on Tuesday agreed to
remove the metal detectors while
deploying other security measures.
This could work, lowering tempers for now. Hopefully, tehy’ll cool
off before next Friday, when Muslim prayers may reignite flames.
In the long run, however, America’s right (and smart) move is to
start addressing the follies of
manufactured Muslim outrage
and holding Abbas and the Palestinians accountable for their incitement that quickly turns campfires into forest fires. That, not security moves by Israel, is the true
threat to international peace and
security.

When I watched today’s deal in a
Chicago game, South was Tom Webb,
known to all as “Tangle” because he
encounters more blocked suits and
entry woes than anyone in my club.
At 3NT, Tangle refused the first two
spades and won the third. He led a
club to the ace, returned a diamond to
his ace, took the K-Q of clubs and
tried a diamond to dummy’s jack. The
finesse won, but East discarded.
Tangle then led the king and a fourth
diamond to set up dummy’s fifth
diamond. But when West took the
queen, he led a club, and East took
the jack and also the king of spades.
Down one.
Tangle got tangled up. Could you
get untangled and make 3NT?
After South takes the ace of clubs,
he can play a low diamond from both
hands. East can win and cash his high
spade, but if he next leads a club,
South takes the ace and comes to the
ace of diamonds.
When South sees how the
diamonds lie, he can cash the K-Q of
clubs, then run three diamonds with a
finesse, winning nine tricks in all.

OVER THE BARREL
Brewers hit as report uncorks millennials’ wine lust
By KEVIN DUGAN
Millennials more and
more want to get wasted in
style — and on Monday the
trend took its toll on a number of brewers.
The young crowd is “shifting away from beer” in favor
of wine and liquor, according to a report from an analyst at Goldman Sachs —
which forecast the move by
the under-35 set will help
push down sales of beer in
the US by 0.7 percent this
year.
Major brands like Budweiser, Coors and Miller are
feeling the brunt of the
move as millennials choose
wine, spirits, and craft and
imported beers when they
want to get a little loose, according to the Goldman report.
The report left some
brewers’ shares looking flat
and stale.
Boston Beer, the maker of
Sam Adams, saw its shares
fall 5 percent, to $130.50,
while
Constellation
Brands, the maker of Corona, slipped 1.3 percent, to
$196.
Goldman lowered its 12month price target for Boston Beer, to $110 from $140
— 15 percent below Monday’s close.
Constellation’s 12-month
share price target was cut to
$210 by Goldman.

ers was more subdued —
perhaps because of the
splintered market.
“We don’t really think that
wine consumers are particularly brand loyal,” Sonia
Vora, analyst at Morningstar, told The Post. “The
majority of consumers tend
’17
to buy based on promotions
than on loyalty.”
In the beer business, the
three major brands make up
about 65 percent of the total
market, according to the
Goldman report.
Volume for “core domestic” brands like Bud, Miller,
and Coors are expected to
be down 3 percent this year.
They have been declining
every year since at least
2011, according to Goldman.
Sales of craft beer, by contrast, are expected to rise 2.5
percent in 2017, the bank
said. While that’s a bright
spot for the industry, it’s
way off from the 17.9 percent
growth in 2011.
While big brewers have
been grappling with the rise
of upstarts for about a decade — in many cases buying small brewers — the report hints that the companies’ troubles may be bigger
than just millennial sots
chasing after the trendiest
new drink.
Younger people “may not
be drinking as much as prior
generations did at their age,”
the report said, without giving a reason for the shift.
Boston Beer, whose stock
has already fallen 19 percent
this year, is expected to fall
another 20 percent on
weaker volume — especially since consumers have
grown less interested in its
seasonal ales, according to
the report.
Boston Beer has tried to
sidestep sluggish beer sales
by expanding into hard ciders.
Goldman downgraded the
stock to a sell rating, from
neutral.
Constellation,
which
Goldman said would also
suffer from flagging volume,
was downgraded to a neutral rating, which is higher
than a sell.
Even with Monday’s selloff, Constellation shares remain up 28 percent for the
year.

Sporting goods trounced on chain’s grief
Wall Street investors may have to
switch to decaf.
Jittery shareholders chopped a total
of $2.5 billion in value from several
sporting goods chains and athletic
footwear makers on Monday after a
single regional retailer — which just
opened its e-commerce store on July
24 — reported its 1,000-plus brickand-mortar stores will report a 10 percent drop in same-store sales in the
second quarter.
Hibbett Sports caused the stampede after reporting it has faced “very
challenging sales trends” that caused
it to slash prices.
Hibbett shares got crushed in the
rush to the exits — tumbling 33.5 percent, to $13.10, after bouncing off a 52week low earlier in the session.
Investors then took down anything
that smelled like a stinky sneaker.
Foot Locker shares fell 4.6 percent,
to $45.05, Finish Line slipped 6.5 per-
cent, to $13.15, and Dick’s Sporting
Goods was off 5.5 percent, to $35.12.
Nike, which on June 29 confirmed it
would be selling its shoes and apparel
on Amazon, sending its shares up 11
percent, saw its shares tossed around
in the Hibbett hurricane, falling 1.7
percent, to $59.95 — below the price
investors set in the post-Amazon euphoria.
Under Armour shares slipped 3.1
percent, to $18.26, Deckers Outdoor
was down 5.1 percent, to $62.92, and
Crocs dropped 2.4 percent, to $7.60.
Investor jitteriness stems from the
number of sporting goods chains that
have gone bankrupt in recent years,
which put pressure on the survivors
as they were forced to cut prices to
match the many going-out-of-business sales.
Quo Vadis Capital analyst John Zolidis told Reuters the move by Hibbett
was “woefully late.”

Brief Blue streak
Apron shares stir on analyst reports
By CARLETON ENGLISH
It’s not even been a month
since the IPO and Blue Apron
CEO Matthew Salzberg has
got to be feeling as if the
company’s stock ticker
APRN has morphed into
a famous pain pill.
Post photo composite
Blue Apron shares surged
19 percent in midday trading
as the banks that took it public released a slew of bullish
analyst reports, blowing off
fears about a looming competitive threat from Amazon.
Goldman Sachs and seven
other banks, all of which
were underwriters on the
meal delivery company’s initial public offering last
month, initiated seemingly
upbeat coverage on Blue
Apron Monday as the 25-day
quiet period on publishing
research expired.
Still, the average 12-month
price target for Blue Apron is
$9.35, according to 13 analysts
surveyed by Bloomberg
News — 65 cents below the
company’s $10 IPO.
Goldman Sachs called Blue
Apron the “leading investment in a largely venture
stage category” and awarded
the company with an $11
price target — just $1 above
Raging headache
the $10 IPO price that was set
by Goldman’s bankers in late
June.
The seeming support
from Wall Street sent
shares soaring to $7.75, but
they fell back to $7.41 at the
close, a gain of 13 percent.
Goldman said it predicts 27
percent revenue growth for
Blue Apron, while acknowledging competition it faces
from other meal delivery
companies such as Hello
Fresh and Plated.
The bank, which advised
Amazon on its acquisition of
Whole Foods, did not cite
Amazon as a risk to Blue
Apron.
That’s despite growing jitters about the Amazon threat
— stoked last week by the
news that Amazon has
launched a meal-kit delivery
service and filed for numerous trademarks in the space
— that have helped send Blue
Apron shares tumbling by as
much as a third since their
June 29 debut.
Blue Apron may reach its
$10 IPO price again, provided it can “consistently improve convenience, price
and selection for customers”
in light of the “major negative overhang” of Amazon’s
moves into the space, RBC
Capital Markets, another
Blue Apron underwriter,
said Monday.
Blue Apron has only one
sell rating, from Northcoast
Research, which initiated
coverage with a $2 price target two weeks ago.
Chipotle seared
by analyst cuts
Shares of Chipotle Mexican Grill lost more ground on
Monday, after analysts cut
stock price targets and raised
doubts about whether the
burrito chain can raise menu
prices to offset higher costs.
The chain’s stock shed
nearly 13 percent of its value
last week on reports of a Norovirus outbreak at a restaurant in Sterling, Va., and mice
in a Dallas eatery. The shares
slipped another 1.6 percent,
to $339.98, at Monday’s close,
after touching $336.65, their
lowest intraday level since
April 2013.
The move in the stock reveals the fragility of Chipotle’s recovery from a salescrushing string of food safety
outbreaks in late 2015, when
public health officials linked
E. coli, Salmonella and Norovirus outbreaks to the chain.
Chipotle’s stock flirted
with $750 prior to the food
safety lapses.
CFRA Research analyst
Tuna Amobi on Monday
chopped his 12-month price
target by more than a third,
reducing it by $190 to $350
per share, and downgraded
Chipotle shares to “hold”
from “buy.”
On Monday, the Loudoun
County Health Department
said a second person tested
positive for Norovirus after
dining at the Chipotle restaurant in Sterling, Va. That restaurant was briefly closed
last week for a deep cleaning.

It must raise rates because Americans need higher yields on their
savings accounts. Without the
higher yields, millions of households can’t increase their spending.
And if they can’t spend more, the
US economy isn’t going to grow at a
reasonable rate. Low rates have, in
essence, been a secret tax on savers.
And this tax is holding the economy
down.
But there’s the other side of this
dilemma.
Without low rates, businesses
may pull back — and that won’t be
good for the economy either. Even
worse, higher interest rates will
make Washington’s deficits bigger
because our government will have
to pay higher yields to borrow
money.
That’s also bad for the economy.
It’s a classic Catch-22 and it has
been going on for years. The Fed is
damned if it does raise rates and
damned if it doesn’t.
At this week’s meeting, the Federal Reserve’s Open Market Committee probably won’t raise rates.
Fed Chair Yellen has indicated she
is getting nervous about hiking
them too quickly. An announce-
ment will come tomorrow.
But be on the lookout for the Fed
telling us how it plans to trim its balance sheet of those trillions of dollars in bonds it purchased under the
quantitative easing scheme.
If QE was dangerous when it was
being set up, it’s even more so now
that it will undergo unwinding.
My poetry may be bad. But so is
the job the Fed has been doing. My
rhyming is hopeless. Let’s pray that
the Fed can improve on what it
does.

With its budget a mess and a task
force trying to figure out how it will
be able to afford to conduct the nationwide census in 2020 — a head
count required by the US Constitution — the Census Bureau is cutting
back.
Because of budget slices, the Census Bureau is dropping trials it was
to have conducted in West Virginia
and Washington state.
The bureau is trying to find new,
higher-tech ways to get responses
from people that don’t require
house-to-house surveying.
John H. Thompson, the soon-tobe-exiting director of the Census
Bureau, probably wants to solve this
issue before he leaves toward the
end of the year.
But he has had four years to figure
it out — and he hasn’t.

Federal spending topped $400 billion for the first time in June.
That has the unfortunate distinction of beating the record of $392.8 billion that was spent in March of 2017.
I mention this because the US
debt is getting awfully close to $20
trillion — a level which, as I said in a
column a while ago, the media
should give as much attention as it
does whenever the Dow Jones industrial average passes through
milestones.
Except, of course, the US debt
level is more of a millstone around
the country’s neck than a milestone.
As of Monday afternoon, the US

HEY, THIS BYTES!
By RICHARD MORGAN
Shares of Google parent Alphabet
Inc. fell 3.1 percent in after-hours trading on Monday, despite that the tech giant posted second-quarter results that
beat Wall Street expectations.
Alphabet’s results were even more
impressive because its forecast-crushing profit of $5.01 per share came after
the company deducted the $2.74 billion, or $3.89 a share, fine levied by the
European Union after it found its
Google search engine favored its own
shopping services above others in
search results.
Wall Street expected profits of $4.49.
Revenue grew 21 percent, to $26.01
billion — surpassing estimates of a 19
percent rise.
In addition, paid clicks rose 52 percent compared with the same period
last year.
If there were worrisome parts of the
earnings report, they were a drop in
cost per click and a rise in traffic acquisition costs.
Cost per click — the amount advertisers pay each time someone clicks on
an ad — fell 23 percent from last year.
Traffic acquisition costs, or TAC,
rose 28 percent in the quarter, to total
$5.1 billion.
“We do expect TAC costs to increase,” Chief Financial Officer Ruth
Porat told analysts and reporters on a
conference call.
The TAC increase and the EU fine
reduced the company’s operating margin to 16 percent from 28 percent in the
year-earlier quarter, prompting Brian
Wieser of Pivotal Research to write,
“Margin erosion was a modest negative for the quarter.”
The results weighed on Alphabet
stock, which had risen by $7.42 in regular trading, to close at $980.34 per
share.

The 52 percent rise in aggregate paid
clicks generated advertising revenue of
$22.7 billion — enough to account for
nearly 90 percent of Alphabet’s business.
“We’re delivering strong growth
with great underlying momentum,
while continuing to make focused investments in new revenue streams,”
said Porat.
Porat cited Google’s burgeoning
cloud business as being a driver of
those “other revenues,” which increased to $3.1 billion in the quarter
from $2.2 billion last year.
Alphabet continued to monetize
YouTube — selling more ads on the
video streamer.
“YouTube is scaling really well globally… like search,” said Chief Executive

Singapore-based GrabTaxi
has announced plans to raise
$2.5 billion in Southeast
Asia’s largest round of
startup fundraising to date,

Japan’s SoftBank and Chinese ride-hailing company
Didi Chuxing will lead the
current round of investment, pouring as much as
$2 billion into Grab, as the
company is known.
Grab, which operates private-car, taxi, motorcycle
and carpool bookings across
seven countries in the region, intends to raise an additional $500 million from
existing and new investors,
the company said. The new
investors weren’t disclosed.

Plans buyout binge.
Carlyle
seeks to
get $15B
Private equity firm Carlyle Group is looking to
raise $15 billion for its next
US buyout fund, Bloomberg
reported on Monday, citing
people familiar with the
matter.
The fund, the firm’s seventh for the US, is part of
Carlyle’s aim to raise $100
billion from 2016 to 2019,
Bloomberg reported.
Carlyle’s $15 billion fund
could be the largest pool
ever focused on buyouts in
the US region, Bloomberg
reported, as private equity
firms are raising ever-bigger pools of capital to provide returns to investors
amid near-zero interest
rates.
The firm, led by co-Chief
Executive Officers David
Rubenstein and William
Conway, gathered $13 billion for its sixth US buyout
fund in 2013.
Carlyle was not immediately available for comment.

McCormick & Co. got
slammed by investors last
week for agreeing to buy
the French’s food business
for $4.2 billion, a price Wall
Street deemed too high.
But the notion that the
business could be acquired for something
closer to $3 billion — a
price cited in reports earlier this year — was based
on bad information, McCormick Chief Executive
Officer Lawrence Kurzius
said in an interview. Companies offering anything
near that price dropped
out in early rounds of the
bidding process, he said.
“The price that was
floated was never in the
cards — that speculation
was not well-informed,”
Kurzius said. “It was unfortunate that that was out
there, but I’m really comfortable with what we paid.”
McCormick announced
the deal late on Tuesday,

Motorists logged 2.2 percent more miles on US
roads and highways in May
compared with the same
month last year, according
to government data released Monday, keeping
2017 mileage on track to
break last year’s record.
Motorists have traveled
1.3 trillion miles on US
roads and highways this
year through May, a 1.7 percent increase over the same
stretch last year, according
to the Department of Transportation.
The sustained strength in
driving volumes is at odds
with US Energy Information Administration data
that show US demand for
gasoline has fallen modestly
year-over-year.
Some
analysts
have
pointed to better fuel efficiency as an explanation,
while others say the gasoline demand numbers are
estimates and subject to revision upward.

Reckitt Benckiser Group.
The news sent the spice
company’s shares down
5.2 percent the following
day, marking their biggest
dip since January 2014.
The transaction price
equated to about 20 times
the division’s earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization,
which RBC Capital Markets analyst James Edwardes Jones called “a
very high price.”
When reports first surfaced in April that Reckitt
was looking to sell the
French’s business, news
outlets said the division was
valued at about $3 billion.
Given the competitive
nature of the bidding process, there’s no way
Reckitt would have agreed
to anything in the $3 billion range, Kurzius said.
Many of the food industry’s biggest companies
were seen as possible suitors for the Reckitt business,
sources said.

in social smoking don’t consider
themselves actual smokers. In
fact, they see smoking a cigarette
as being akin to indulging in dessert or a cocktail.
“Young people are smoking
again,” says 28-year-old Ludovica
Capobianco, an art curator from
Chinatown who formerly lived in
Milan. “I think a cigarette is like
a glass of wine. Of course, if you
drink 10 glasses of wine per day,
you’re gonna ruin your liver. But if
you have one or two glasses every
now and then, that’s fine,” she says,
adding that prescription drugs can
be “way worse” for your health
than the occasional cig.
Thirty-two-year-old Ashley
Arenson, who splits her time
between Bushwick and Berlin and
was spending the weekend at the
Hestia house, has a similar take.
“People put a lot of things in their
bodies that are very bad for them,”
the meditation practitioner, who
works in the art world, says. “I
choose to smoke cigarettes. I know
it’s still a cigarette — I don’t drink
a lot. I think that balances it out.
When people say, ‘You shouldn’t
smoke so much,’ I’m like, ‘You
shouldn’t drink so much — it’s
really bad for you.’ Or, ‘Don’t eat so
much processed wheat.’ ”
Doctors aren’t letting hipsters’
health delusions slide.
“Bottom line: healthy diet, you
exercise and you smoke? That’s
better than smoking without
those other positives, but stopping smoking is, hands down, the
best thing you can do for your
health. It simply has no downside,” says Keith-Thomas Ayoob,
an associate clinical professor
in the Department of Pediatrics
at Albert Einstein College of
Medicine.
According to a study published
in May in the American Journal
of Health Promotion, all smokers — even those who indulge
occasionally — have higher risks
of hypertension and elevated
cholesterol than nonsmokers.
The study also found that there
is no significant difference in risk
factor between social smokers
and regular smokers.
And cigarettes marketed as natural are just as bad for smokers,
says a study published in the journal Tobacco Control in December
2016. “Inhaling burnt tobacco
is harmful whether it’s organic,
additive-free, or natural, it doesn’t
matter,” lead study author Jennifer
Pearson told Reuters.

house last weekend, couldn’t
resist copping a couple of packs
to take home. “I’m intuitive about
products,” he says. “I’ll try it —
I’m not opposed to it.”
April Francis, an occasional
smoker crashing at the Hestia
house, insists that lighting up
doesn’t stray far from her other
healthy habits.
“The act of smoking is like a
meditation practice. You’re consciously breathing in and exhaling,” says the 34-year-old Dose
Market startup founder.
But not every millennial is sold
on the self-styled safer smokes.
“I don’t think Marlboro is
less healthy than an organic
cigarette,” says Surf Lodge patron
Hunter Gassman, a 24-year-old
who lives in Columbus Circle and
smokes Marlboro 27s. “There’s
more than enough research to
show smoking is not healthy.”
And he’s convinced the
cigarette renaissance will be
fleeting once the market becomes
saturated. “Like anything else,” he
says, “once they all smoke again,
it’s going to become uncool.”

Ten years ago, it was easy to
lump classes into one of a handful
of categories: spin, yoga, pilates or
retro step aerobics. But the recent
influx of workouts means that anything goes in a fitness studio now,
whether it be rope slams, bar hangs,
one-armed burpees or cathartic
screams. While it’s exciting, it can
also be overwhelming for trainers
who need to gauge whether a move
is actually helping students meet
their fitness goals.

You have the power to prevent dementia
Worried about losing your mind in
your later years? Make a few lifestyle
shifts now and you’ll significantly
lower your risk for dementia, new
research says.
A new report published in the
medical journal the Lancet found
that roughly 35 percent of dementia
cases can be prevented through
lifestyle adjustments.
Shifts run the gamut, from increasing education in early life to taking
care of hearing loss and tackling
obesity in midlife. Such changes were
found to lower dementia risk by up to
20 percent.
Furthermore, people who quit
smoking, treat their depression and
increase their physical activity and
social contact could reduce their risk of
dementia by an additional 15 percent.
“Though it’s not inevitable, dementia is currently set to be the 21st century’s biggest killer,” Dr. Doug Brown,
director of research at Alzheimer’s
Society, says in a press release. “We
all need to be aware of the risks
and start making positive lifestyle
changes.”

Nice and

Stefano Giovannini
Boldface names are pitching mailorder drinks to sip — and to slather
By LAUREN STEUSSY
W
OULD you put a frozen
drink on your face?
Salma Hayek is banking on it. She is just
one of the celebrities backing
mail-order smoothie kits meant
to beautify you from the inside
out — and, in Hayek’s case, from
the outside in.
Juice Generation is now offering
three new drinks concocted by
Hayek, and each doubles as a face
mask: Blend it, drink it, smear it on
your skin, and the actress claims
you’ll see glowing results. Hayek,
who says she was inspired by her
grandmother — a “witch doctor”
who often whipped up complexion
remedies in her own kitchen — is
a co-creator of the juice company’s
“Blend It Yourself” kits.
The best thing about them is
the taste. They’re full of refreshing fruits and vegetables such as
papaya, pear, avocado and nopal
cactus. As for slopping them onto
your skin? After applying the
green gunk with a brush, I experienced a sensation bordering on
brain freeze. Not exactly pleasant,
but the aloe and cucumber left my
skin soft, tight and calm. Another
blend contains “superhero cubes”
of hibiscus, rose water and calendula, which supposedly have antiinflammatory properties.
Post reporter Lauren Steussy says actress Salma Hayek’s “Aloe Greens”
smoothie tastes good, but gave her brain freeze when she put it on her face.
But the cooling sensation
probably has little to do with the
ingredients and more with the
drastic temperature change, says
aesthetician Sharon Boes, director of education at facial clinic
Skin Laundry.

Another company is touting the
beauty benefits of its mail-order
smoothies — not from slathering on the ingredients topically,
but by consuming them.
Daily Harvest, whose investors include Gwyneth Paltrow
and Serena Williams, ships a
combination of produce picked
and frozen at peak ripeness to
maintain its optimal nutrition,
the company says.
It charges $47.94 for six
smoothies a week. One available flavor is the blueberry
and hemp booster — a fibrous,
nutty smoothie containing antioxidant-rich blueberries. Many
of the drinks also include healthy
fats, such as those found in avocados and walnuts, which are also
good for skin, Boes says.
Still, you’re not going to get all
that many skin-care benefits from
eating or applying these mixtures
to your face, Boes says.
“It’s not like you can just eat
something and think you’re going
to have the world’s best skin,” she
says. “Even when you’re eating
healthy food, your skin is [still]
vulnerable to the environment
around it.”

“He said, ‘I want to do spots
where I’m not overshadowing someone who is having a
breakout moment.’ ”
JFL aside, Montreal is a
funny place all year long,
with a robust stand-up,
improv and open mic scene.
A comedy superstar in
France, Gad Elmaleh (who
co-headlines with Seinfeld
and has a Netflix special out

(ComedyNest.com) are the
city’s two major Englishlanguage comedy clubs.
Billed as a “bilingual DIY
comedy night,” eight-monthold Comedy at The Art
Loft (Facebook.com/ComedyAtTheArtLoft) is a successful weekly spin-off from
a scrappy arts and activism
festival, Montreal Infringement (InfringeMontreal.org).
Cover is $4 and it’s BYOB.
“There was a local poll

Art Loft’s was No. 1,” says
Sugar Sammy. A Mon-

descent, Sammy notes that
visitors should expect a
unique point of view from
Québécois comedians, who
draw influence from North
America and France as well
as the area’s diverse population. That said, international
politics currently provide
plenty of fodder: “I definitely have some Trump jokes.”
A venue for JFL and early
summer’s Fringe festival
(MontrealFringe.ca), the
Mainline Theatre (MainlineTheatre.ca) hosts humorous productions at other

Theatre Sainte-Catherine’s

show at 8 p.m. ($5.50) boasts
a “Survivor”-like twist, with
low-rated performers given
the boot each round. Montreal Improv also hosts
several weekly shows
(MontrealImprov.com).
A larger French-language
comedy industry flourishes
in Montreal, according to
Sammy. If fluent, check
out Francophone-centric
stand-up club Le Bordel
(LeBordel.ca). But bilingual
performances rule at some
venues, like Wednesday

the monthly Cous Cous

Rialto Theatre. “They’ll do

Cochon (AuPiedDeCochon.
ca) for “one of the craziest
meals I ever had.”
As for Sammy, you’ll
find him savoring Portuguese chicken at Grillades Da Silva, Japanese
izakaya fare at Biiru (Biiru.
ca), Korean- and South
American-inspired sushi at
Park (ParkResto.com) and
breakfast at Café Orange
(Facebook.com/OrangeCafe
Montreal). “It lends itself
well to discussions and chat,”
he says of the latter.
And laughs, naturally.

HOTEL FACE-OFF:
Mykonos, Greece

Dimitris Poupalos
Kensho
Cavo Tagoo
Opened in June 2016,
Kensho is a sleek haven
for lovebirds looking for a
respite from the island’s
nonstop party scene.
Built in 1985 atop a dilapidated quarry and extensively renovated in 2007,
Cavo Tagoo set the bar for
Mykonos’ luxe hotels.
Idyllically set on a hill that is just a five-minute walk from buzzy Ornos beach, Kensho
features 35 rooms decked out with either a Jacuzzi or a small pool. Designed with a contemporary aesthetic, rooms feature blond wood accents, white walls and custom Italian
furniture. Rain showers are kitted out with Hermès soaps and shampoos.
THE LURE
THE LAYOUT
Andreas Dimogiannis
Most of its 80 rooms and suites come with private terraces overlooking the Aegean
Sea. The property is also near a port and pristine beaches. Splurge on a villa, which
includes a seaside bathtub, mod furnishings and an infinity pool that’s perfect for
ogling Greece’s famous sunsets.
BREAKFAST,
LUNCH,
DINNER?
During the day, hotel restaurant Kiku offers traditional Mediterranean cuisine, including
perfectly fried calamari. Definitely don’t miss dinner, which centers on Japanese fare. (The
spicy sushi rolls were especially tasty.) Guests can also inhale, exhale and unwind with
fruit-flavored hookah.
Watch the sunset at the hotel’s pool overlooking the beach, which literally sparkles
with starry lights — perfect for Instagram.
DON’T MISS
Sip some Greek rosé at the trendy pool
bar, where hard-bodied beauties recline
on floating pads to sunbathe and be seen.
Though the staff is warm and friendly, the
hotel is still ironing out kinks. We missed
our ship to Santorini because the hotel
shuttle took us to the wrong port, even
though the driver had our ticket info.
THE
LETDOWN
Though a complimentary shuttle takes
guests to and from the main town every 30
minutes, it can be difficult trying to get a
ride back after 10 p.m. Make sure to call an
hour ahead to arrange a pick-up.
For breakfast, skip the buffet and order à la carte. The eggs Benedict — along with a glass
of Champagne — is the perfect vacation pick-me-up. At night, make sure to try chef
George Stylianoudakis’ 10-course Mediterranean dinner, with dishes like crispy octopus
skin with fish roe and pork belly slow-cooked in fresh herbs.
Kensho’s laid-back charm makes it an
ideal stay for couples. (Greece is a popular
honeymoon spot, hint hint.) Its beautiful
interiors and picturesque location make it
a welcome addition to Mykonos.
From $570; KenshoMykonos.com.
THE
LOWDOWN
DETAILS
Nicholas Mastoras
The service is world-class. The concierge
suggests quality restaurants. Even with
the island’s recent new-hotel surge, Cavo
Tagoo maintains its rightful place atop the
lists of Mykonos’ best stays.
From $770; CavoTagoo.com.

museums, history and good
grub. And by far the best
combination of all three is
London. Since the Olympics, London & Partners
— the city’s official tourism
board — has made it a priority to lure large sporting
events. And this fall, the
NFL will play four games
across the pond. (That’s up
from only one in 2007, the
first year the league started
scheduling regular season
games in London.)
These NFL matchups are
a hot ticket on the other side
of the Atlantic. The games
always sell out, and the league
has been pushing to add a
franchise based in the English
capital. The sport also seems
to be catching on with locals.
In 2016, area TV networks’
NFL coverage saw an 80 percent increase in ratings from
the previous year.
I’m not alone in my search
for sports sights. “Last year,
we had about 19 million
international visitors,” says
Iain Edmondson, head of
major events at London &
Partners. “We know approximately 13 percent come to
attend a game.”
In January, London &
Partners flew me over for
my own sports pilgrimage.
I saw the Denver Nuggets
play the Indiana Pacers at
the O2 Arena, where every
hoops-obsessed soccer star
sat courtside, making the
sidelines more exciting than
the main event.
It was also mid-season for
the Premier League, and I
was lucky enough to see my
favorite team, Tottenham
Hotspur, play West Bromwich Albion. Striker Harry
Kane netted a hat trick. Also
at the game was former Met
Daniel Murphy. He, too, is a
rabid Spurs fan and makes
yearly trips to see them play.
It was also my last chance
to experience the historic
White Hart Lane stadium
in North London. It is being
torn down to make way for
the Spurs’ new stadium,
which will mimic the US
model and boast posh hospitality suites. When it opens
up for the 2018 season, the
new digs will also play host
to NFL games.
I dropped by Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, where
the centerpiece of the 2012
Games has been converted
to the home field for West
Ham, another Premier
League team. If there’s no
match going on, you can
take a tour of the stadium,
complete with access to the
locker room, and head onto
the field through the tunnel
just like the players do.
Taking a break from
indulging my inner stadium
nerd, I visited the Tate
Modern and the observation
deck atop the Shard. The latter has toilets with full glass
windows — making it a loo
with an incredible view.
But of course, there are
five Premier League teams
in London, and I haven’t
seen them all yet. It’s time to
plot my next long weekend
across the pond.

AVE game ticket,
will travel.
That’s been the
vacation credo
for my entire
adult life.
While most people go on
holiday in search of things
you find in a Fodor’s guide,
I’m after local soccer matches, football games or baseball outings. Or, hell, even a
cockroach race would do.
Live sporting events offer
an excellent window into
a society. You learn what
locals eat and drink, how
they celebrate and, most
importantly, the frequency
with which they use unsavory language.
Out of soccer fandom
alone, I’ve attended English
Premier League games, La
Liga matches in Spain and
an FA Cup Final at Wembley.
Domestically, I check off a
few new cities, events and
stadiums every year. Yet it
seems almost impossible
to make much of a dent in
my sports bucket list, which

Last year, the Giants packed a London stadium. This fall, four
other NFL matchups on UK soil will increase its global fan base.
GET THERE Low-cost
carrier Norwegian Air has
a solid business-class experience (from $900 round-trip)
and an affordable economy
class (from $430 round-trip)
out of JFK. Or there’s always
the venerable Virgin Atlantic (from $1,700 round-trip),
which flies from both JFK
and Newark.
STAY St. Ermin’s is a
history buff’s delight. The
former mansion was the
headquarters for the Special
Operations Executive and
MI6, playing an integral role
in the country’s World War
II resistance. It’s also luxurious, has beautiful beehives
on the third floor for homemade honey and is a quick
walk from Westminster
Abbey, Parliament and the
Tube (from $350;
StErminsHotel.co.uk).
EAT Iconic London restaurant Bentley’s Oyster
Bar and Grill is tucked away
on a side street in bustling
Mayfair. The seafood mecca,
helmed by celebrity chef
Richard Corrigan, has a large
raw bar and the most delectable fish and chips (Bentleys.
org). If fresh pasta is your
dish, then Padella is your
spot. The charming-but-nofrills noodle haven in Borough Market feels like your
grandma’s kitchen — and
might make better spaghetti
(Padella.co). In Soho, relaxed
Casita Andina serves modern takes on Peruvian dishes.
Wash down spicy plates of
seafood and meat with a
Pisco sour (AndinaLondon.

IRON CLAD
By CHARLES COTTON
Former
heavyweight
champion of the world
Mike Tyson isn’t giving
Conor McGregor a fighting chance — or even a
correct identification.
In an interview with
Barstool Sports’ “Pardon
My Take,” Tyson, who frequently grinded together
McGregor’s name, did not
mince words when asked
about the mega-bout set
for Aug. 26 in Las Vegas,
deemed one of the most
hyped fights ever.
“McGregor is going to
get killed boxing,” Tyson
predicted.
Iron Mike’s pick is in
step with Vegas, who
made 49-0 boxer Floyd
Mayweather, 40, the
heavy favorite over the
MMA star who has never
boxed. Tyson is especially confident in Mayweather because of the
rules of the boxing match
— in that, it’s a boxing
match.
“I got mad because I
thought they were going
to use MMA rules against
boxing because that’s what
it’s all about: Can the
boxer beat the MMA guy?”
Tyson said. “McConor put

his dumb ass in a position
where he’s gonna get
knocked out because this
guy’s been doing this all
his life, since he was a
baby. McConor can’t kick
and grab and stuff, so he
won’t stand much of a
chance.”
Tyson said that if he
fought McGregor, 29, he
would have allowed him
to use his legs.

a member of the Cowboys’ public relations
MLB: Twins, KC bolster rotations
staff after a morning walk-through pracThe Twins acquired veteran left-handed
pitcher Jaime García, catcher Anthony
Recker and cash from the Braves for minor league righty Huascar Ynoa. The 31year-old García was 4-7 with a 4.30 ERA,
41 walks and 85 strikeouts in 18 starts for
the Braves this year.
 The Royals acquired right-handed
starter Trevor Cahill and relievers Ryan
Buchter, and Brandon Maurer from the
Padres in return for pitchers Matt
Strahm, Travis Wood and infield prospect Esteury Ruiz.
 In Seattle, James Paxton allowed
four singles over seven innings to win his
fifth consecutive start in July and Kyle
Seager homered to pace the Mariners to a
4-0 victory over the Red Sox.
 In Arlington, Texas, Giancarlo Stanton homered twice to move into a tie for
the major league lead with Aaron Judge
with 32, sending the Marlins over the
Rangers 4-0.
NFL: ’Boys cut Whitehead over arrest
The Cowboys released receiver and kick
returner Lucky Whitehead after he was
linked to a shoplifting arrest in Prince William County, Va., with his agent saying he
believes it was a case of mistaken identity.
Whitehead was escorted off the field by
tice at training camp Monday in Oxnard,
Calif. Whitehead also missed his July 6
court hearing — resulting in a warrant being issued for his arrest for failure to appear, according to TMZ.
 Colts quarterback Andrew Luck’s
surgically repaired shoulder will land him
on the physically unable to perform list to
start training camp, the team announced.
General manager Chris Ballard said the
move is not considered a setback.
Safety Clayton Geather (neck surgery)
will also be on the PUP list and miss the
first six weeks of the season.
 The Chargers will bring in former
Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III
for a workout Tuesday, according to ESPN.
It is the first team Griffin has visited this
offseason.
 General manager John Elway agreed
to a new five-year contract with the Broncos.
ETC.: Dale Jr. lands TV gig with NBC
Dale Earnhardt Jr. will join NBC
Sports Group’s coverage of stock car racing next year.
The agreement with NBC Universal will
also allow Earnhardt to pursue “a wide
range of opportunities in the company’s
media businesses, including movies, television, podcasts, and other areas.”

* REC: Won-lost record of pitcher's team in games he has started.
Are we there yet, Stitches?
“What we need is leadership, not photo ops.” — Joe
Lhota
Mayor de Blasio’s subway shoot was flawless. Pity.
Here’s the Train in Vain Take 2 ...
“What’s wrong with this thing?” Keep swiping, Bill. Insufficient funds, Blas, get on line it’s only 10 deep. ... Tourist:
“How do I get to ...?” Patience, Mr Mayor. (10 minutes
later) Oh we almost made that one, Bill! That’s OK. Next
one. Conductor: “This train is out of service.” That’s OK,
next one. ... Stand clear. Ahh here we go. Don’t sit there,
Bill, the pole dancers are in the next car. Sit on the end
near the homeless couple. “WHAT’S THAT?!” Take it easy,
Blas, it’s just a mariachi band looking for a buck. Conductor: “We are delayed because of train traffic ahead of us.
Thank you for your patience.” (an hour later) Take care,
Bill. Same time tomorrow?
A’s Sonny Gray is 4-1 over his last five starts with a 1.62
ERA. Takes his turn in Toronto tonight — 20 units on Oakland.
Two runs, four hits, over six innings for the very efficient
Josh Tomlin. Indians beat the Reds 6-2. Back up to 997 lowenbraus.

IN LEW OF
FLOWERS
Five years and leagues away from the majors,
Ford’s career is alive and hitting in Long Island
By HOWIE KUSSOY
he sounds of a packed playoff game
at old Yankee Stadium were faint.
The images of high-end hotels were
no longer so vivid. The efficient and
comfortable plane rides could have been
confused with fiction.
An increasingly unpredictable career
had placed former Twins outfielder Lew
Ford on an unreliable bus, stopped in a rural
Mexican village on his way to his next game.
If only those damn cows would move.
“There was a farmers strike, and there
weren’t many roads going through there,
and at the only road to get to the game, the
farmers had let all of their cattle go in the
middle of the road, so no cars could pass
by,” Ford recalled this week. “We had to
stop the bus and sit on the side of the road
for hours. … All the time, stuff would happen, where buses would break down, and
trips would take 12 hours.
“You think you’ve seen it all, and then
something else happens.”
Life on Long Island, where Ford has now
spent more seasons with the Ducks (eight),
than he did in the majors (six), is a little
easier.
Here, the 40-year-old can order his own
food, unlike in Japan, where he’d need to
call his translator, and hand the phone to a
waiter. Here, the Texas native is home, having purchased a house in Central Islip, and
becoming engaged to a native Long Islander. Here, the player/coach, who earned an
AL MVP vote in 2004, continues to quietly
crush opposing pitchers in the heart of the
Ducks lineup, stretching team records he’s
already set.
T
█ █ █
Every year, Ford returns to the place he
long plotted to escape from.
“It’s tough coming here the first time,”
said Ford, who first played in the independent Atlantic League in 2009. “You don’t
know what to expect. You don’t know any-
thing about the league at all. ... I thought I
should be able to hit really well and get out
of here pretty quickly, which is probably
what most guys think.”
Most guys who find themselves in Suffolk County never sniff their dream again
— former All-Star Eric Gagne joined the
Ducks this season, calling off his comeback
after five appearances — but Ford worked
his way back to the majors in 2012 after five
years in exile, playing 25 games with the
Orioles.
Last year, Ford was named the MVP of
the championship series in winter ball in
the Dominican Republic, and he has hit
.329 in his career with the Ducks,
but he surrendered
endered all hope of
returning to the big leagues
three years ago, coaches and
scouts kept telling him that
no numberss he compiled
would be more important
than his age,
e, following two hernia surgeries.
ries.
“They were pretty blunt,
and said, ‘We
‘W think you can
still play, but with your age
and injury history,
ory we’re not
ory,
gonna take the chance,’”
Ford said last week at
Bethpage Ballpark.
“It’s tough to hear,

That’s when

So, Ford
became
the Ducks’

coach,
w h i l e
remaining
the team’s best hitter.
Now, a third-year bench coach, Ford feels
more comfortable in his office he shares
with the pitching coach than at his locker,
surrounded by teammates too young to
remember the superstars he used to play
with.
“I don’t think they even know who Johan
[Santana] is,” said Ford, of the two-time Cy
Young winner. “I still try to get in the clubhouse and talk to the guys and shoot the
bull with them, but I don’t know, the age
difference is just getting more and more. I
still enjoy it, I still have fun, but every year
I become more of a coach and less of a
player.”

his name was never supposed to be
known.
Ford arrived at Texas A&M on an
academic scholarship, and failed to
make the team as a walk-on. He
then transferred to three different schools, long believing his
studies in computer science and
engineering would prove more
useful than his bat. Then, after
becoming an All-American at Dallas Baptist, Ford was taken in the 12th
round of the 1999 draft by the Red Sox, and
broke into the majors as a 26-year-old with
the Twins in 2003.
With Ford now playing for no reason
other than to keep playing, Ducks manager Kevin Baez marvels at how hard his
second-in-command still prepares for each
game.
“He still has that fire in his belly that he
wants to compete,” Baez said. “He could
just coach, but he still has those competitive juices that you can’t teach. Guys are
still in awe of him, how he’s doing it. He’s
still having success. Keep playing until they
take the uniform off.”
The end could come after this season.
Maybe it will happen next year, instead. Or
Ford could keep going and going and going,
until the uniform is finally taken from him.
“I’m thinking this may be my last year,”
Ford said. “Each year, I think this may be
my last year. That’s how I’ve approached
it. I want to try and enjoy it like it’s my last
year. I don’t know what I’ll be doing. I may
get another job, that I got to give it up, or
my body might not be able to do this. This
year, I did get the itch and I wanted to play,
and I’m glad I did.
“I’m happy to be able to play this long,
and have a good career. I’m not trying to
prove anything to myself at this point. I’m
just doing it because I like to do it. I look
back with no regrets. I did the best I could
and I’m happy with it.”

METS NOTES
Chris Flexen will be promoted from Double-A Binghamton on Thursday to start
in Wheeler’s spot. In seven
starts for Binghamton, the
23-year-old righty is 6-1 with
a 1.66 ERA and 0.72 WHIP.
Tyler Pill was summoned
from Triple-A Las Vegas on
Monday to give the Mets an
extra bullpen arm until
Flexen is added to the 25-man
roster.
Wheeler, who is 3-7 with a
5.21 ERA, joins Noah Syndergaard, Matt Harvey and Robert Gsellman among the Mets
starting pitchers on the DL.
“I expected bumps in the
road coming back this year
and it’s just unfortunate because everything else was
awesome: elbow, shoulder,
everything feels great and
that’s why it’s frustrating
for me,” Wheeler said.

Jose Reyes stole his

Amed Rosario returned
to the lineup for Triple-A Las
Vegas after missing the previous six games (he was hospitalized over the weekend
with gastrointestinal discomfort and previously sustained
a bruised index finger). He
went 1-for-4 with a double
and two RBIs in a 6-4 loss to
the Memphis Redbirds. Neil

appearance against the Mets
on May 23, Chacin gave up
eight hits and seven earned
runs in two-thirds of an inning.

SAN DIEGO — Zack
Wheeler’s
adventurous
comeback season has a new
twist.
On Monday the Mets righthander was placed on the
disabled list for the second
time this season, as he deals
with soreness in his humerus bone. Wheeler was
previously on the DL last
month with biceps tendinitis.
“I am not going to be
dumb and try to push something I think would hurt me
after missing two full seasons — that would be stupid,” said Wheeler, who
missed 2015 and ’16 while
rehabbing from Tommy
John surgery.

Blueshirts
low-ball
Zibanejad
By LARRY BROOKS
Mika Zibanejad asking for $5.35 million
would be pretty well within the parameters
of precedent if that number was attached to
a four- or five-year deal.
Detroit’s Tomas Tatar signed for $5.3 million per for four years while surrendering
three seasons of unrestricted free agency.
Tampa Bay’s Tyler Johnson gave up six seasons of unrestricted free agency in signing a
seven-year deal worth $5
million per while teammate Ondrej Palat surrendered four seasons of
unrestricted free agency
with his recent five-year
contract for $5.3 million
per. And a year ago, the
Blues’ Brayden Schenn
signed a four-year deal
worth $5.125 million per
in yielding two seasons of
unrestricted free agency.
ZIBANEJAD All would be more or
less statistical comparables to Zibanejad, who has recorded 188
points (78 goals, 110 assists) in 337 games
over five NHL seasons, including last year’s
injury-interrupted 37-point output (14-23) in
56 games with the Rangers.
The stark difference is the 24-year-old
center is seeking that much for a one-year
arbitration award as he and general manager Jeff Gorton prepare for a hearing in
Toronto on Tuesday. Zibanejad would thus
still be eligible to become an unrestricted
free agent in 2019 after another go at salary
arbitration next summer.
Which is why the Blueshirts submitted a
bottom-of-the-market $4.1 million number
in their brief that was filed Sunday. If left to
arbitration, Zibanejad’s award likely would
be in the $4.5 million-$4.75 million range.
Gorton is expected to meet with Zibanejad and his agent, Monir Kalgoum, prior to
the hearing in an attempt to hammer out a
multi-year deal for the club’s projected
first-line center that presumably would
come in at the $5.25 million-$5.5 million
neighborhood.
Fifteen Rangers have filed for salary arbitration over the last 10 summers. All 15 were
settled before arbitration, and generally
within an hour of a scheduled hearing. Sean
Avery and Nikolay Zherdev were the last two
Blueshirts to go through hearings in 2007.
It is possible the Rangers and Zibanejad
could reach an agreement on a multi-year
deal in the two-day period between a hearing and the arbitrator’s announcement of
an award. That’s what happened last week
with the Red Wings and Tatar.
The Rangers will have a 48-hour buyout
window following settlement of the Zibanejad case that will resolve Marc Staal’s
immediate fate.

nine as his lead melted away.
“I’m at a loss for words,’’ Johnson said
while trying to describe how Spieth survived the mess he had made on No. 13,
where his drive sailed 120 yards toward Liverpool to the right of the fairway and yet he
still salvaged a bogey. It was a guy falling
into a shark tank and climbing out of it with
a paper cut.
Ernie Els, whose prime happened to coincide with Tiger Woods’, marveled not only
at the three majors Spieth already has at
age 23 and his seven top-4 finishes in just 19
career majors, but the reputation as a ruthless closer he is forging.
“He can go up to the 14 mark,” Els said,
speaking of major championships, which
happens to be the number Woods is stuck
on. “Guys kind of start knowing that you
know how to win — and almost like Tiger
— where people maybe feel like they can’t
do it against Jordan.’’
Spieth is humbled to hear his name used
in the same sentence as Woods and Jack
Nicklaus, whom he joined Sunday as the
only players to win three legs of the Grand
Slam before age 24.
If he wins the PGA Championship next
month at Quail Hollow, Spieth would
eclipse Woods’ record as the youngest to
complete the rare and elusive Grand Slam
that only five players (Nicklaus, Woods,
Ben Hogan, Gary Player and Gene Sarazen)
have accomplished.
“I don’t compare myself,’’ Spieth said. “I
don’t think that [comparisons] are appropriate or necessary. To be in that company,
no doubt, is absolutely incredible and I certainly appreciate it. But I’m very careful as
to what that means going forward, because
what those guys have done has transcended the sport.
“And in no way, shape or form do I think
I’m anywhere near that, whatsoever. So it’s
a good start, but there is a long way to go.’’

Here’s a look at the favorites
to win the PGA Championship
from Aug. 7-13:
They are the old-school Giants of Bill Parcells with
flashy Super Bowl rings to
prove it. Their bond is tighter
than wet rope and they still
bleed blue when summer
turns to fall. Their message to
the 2017 Giants as they prepare for training camp is that
the old guys are watching and
they expect big things this
season.
“I think this should be a
championship-type team,” said
Billy Ard, a guard on the Giants
1986 Super Bowl winner. “It’s
not just getting into the playoffs and lose in the first round.
This should be an NFC Championship type of team and I
think anything less would be
upsetting to management, the
fan base and the players.”
The Giants made the playoffs last season for the first
time in five years, but lost in
the first round at Green Bay.
That should be a stepping
stone and not the finish line.
“Going to the playoffs last
year should make them even
hungrier because you were
there,” said Stephen Baker,
who played on the 1990 Super
Bowl team. “You know what
it feels like and what it takes
to win now. I hope they take
some positives out of that loss
and learn. It’s so precious to
get to the playoffs. You’re not
going to have very many opportunities. So you have to
make the best of it.”
They gathered at a charity
golf event last week to support the Ottis Anderson
Scholarship Fund. It was a
chance to reconnect with former teammates and talk
about the past, the present
and the future. They like what
they see in Ben McAdoo’s Giants. They like the draft picks,
especially first-round selection Evan Engram, a tight end
from Ole Miss and secondrounder Dalvin Tomlinson, a
defensive tackle from Alabama. They also like the highoctane approach McAdoo has
implemented for an offense
GREAT EXPECTATIONS: Ottis Anderson (above, in
Super Bowl XXV) and other old-school Giants are expecting big things from Ben McAdoo’s crew this season.

loaded with weapons.
“I love the tight-end pick,”
Baker said. “When is the last
time we had a quality tight
end around here? They made
the type of acquisitions
where I think we’re going to
have an exciting offense.”
There is concern about
Ereck Flowers at left tackle
and the rest of the offensive
line.
“I think they’re going to be
as good as how much protection Eli [Manning] gets,” Ard
said. “Getting a line together
is not that hard. You just have
to have a bunch of hard-working guys who are mentally
tough and figure it out. I’m
excited. I think it’s going to be
a very good year.”
Ard wasn’t a fan of the infamous boat trip some of the
wide receivers, including
Odell Beckham Jr., took in Miami the weekend before the
playoff loss at Green Bay. “Everything today is look at me,
look at me,” Ard said. “It’s not a
big deal if you win. If you lose
the pressure is on you. And
when you drop the ball and
don’t play well it doesn’t look
good and it doesn’t sit well.”
Though the boat trip was
frowned upon the Parcells Giants don’t care much about
Beckham and other players
missing OTAs this spring.
“It’s all about what you start
doing in July,” Anderson said.
“OTAs aren’t mandatory and
a lot of guys believe in their
own programs. You can make
a big fuss about every little
thing that goes on with these
guys today. What we start
seeing in July is what counts.”

OVI charges dropped vs. Lewis
By PAUL SCHWARTZ
Roger Lewis Jr. will embark on his second
NFL training camp with clarity regarding a recent arrest. On Monday, Lewis had a charge of
operating a vehicle while impaired dismissed,
according to a Licking County (Ohio) Municipal court clerk contacted by The Post.
Lewis was found guilty of driving within
marked lanes, for which he was fined $150, and
also fined $25 for tinted windows. Lewis was
arrested June 4 in Reynoldsburg, Ohio. According to the police report, 0.2 grams of marijuana were found in Lewis’ 2012 Audi.
Lewis refused testing at the scene, and an
Administrative License Suspension was put in
place. Lewis on Monday applied for driving
privileges.
Lewis, 23, made the Giants’ roster last year as
an undrafted free agent from Bowling Green.
As a rookie, he caught seven passes for 97
yards and two touchdowns. He will be in a
training-camp battle this summer to retain his
roster spot, as the Giants have Odell Beckham
Jr., Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard and
Dwayne Harris ahead of him, and Tavarres
King coming off a strong late-season showing.
Other receivers with a shot are Darius Powe
and rookie Travis Rudolph.
In high school in Ohio, Lewis was charged
with two counts of rape. A jury acquitted him
on one charge but came back deadlocked on
the second charge. He agreed to plead guilty to
lesser charges, and his three-year probation
sentence ended last September.

Rose to
sign with
Cleveland
By FRED KERBER
By FRED KERBER
fred.kerber @nypost.com
Corey Sipkin
It has been 104 days since the
Knicks played their last regularseason game, officially ending their
season.
It only seems like it has been
10,000 days and then some.
And that’s largely because of the
Carmelo Anthony situation, which
Monday saw a new team, the
Thunder, identified as the latest
suitor for the 10-time All-Star.
“OKC and Carmelo are officially
circling each other,” Bill Simmons
of The Ringer tweeted while citing
the connection between the Knicks
forward and Troy Weaver, the
Thunder vice president and assistant general manager. Weaver recruited Anthony to Syracuse back
when dinosaurs ruled the Earth.
All of this probably carries the
weight of Portland’s All-Star backcourt of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum claiming last week that Anthony was interested in the Blazers.
Anthony wants Houston. He
wants to go to the Rockets with
buddy Chris Paul and MVP runner-up James Harden.
But the Thunder report could
simply be a matter of daily business in the NBA.
A league source said there appeared to be no substance to the
rumor, but did not discount conversation.
“When a high-caliber player becomes available, you have to do
your due diligence on the situation,” the source said.
Figure there were a lot of diligent
executives making calls to Cleveland about Kyrie Irving the past
couple days.
Meanwhile, the Knicks and Rockets have settled into a waiting
game. The Rockets survey the
landscape and see a player, Anthony, who only wants to play for
them. So they feel they can wait.
The Knicks survey the same
landscape and see offers that are
completely unappealing. So they
feel they can wait. The Rockets
have essentially offered forward
Ryan Anderson, 29, with three
years and $61 million left on his
contract.
The Knicks simply say no.
They want young players and assets — draft picks. That is why, at
the press conference officially
naming Steve Mills president and
Scott Perry general manager last
week, Mills claimed they were
ready “to move forward’’ with or
without Anthony.
“We made a decision to slow
things down, let us regroup and get
together and make sure what’s best
for the New York Knicks and at the
same time we’ll do what’s best for
Carmelo,” the new team president
said at the time.
So if worst came to worst, the
Knicks would start the season with
Anthony and perhaps even wait for
the trade deadline when they
might fetch more in return. And
Anthony, who has waived his notrade clause for Houston and
Cleveland, might expand it to several other teams if he were to see
an attractive playoff possibility.
And with the ability to opt out of
his contract next summer, such a
rental proposition might be appealing.
So the Rockets wait. And the
Knicks wait for Houston to perhaps find a third, even a fourth,
team to facilitate a trade. After all,
it’s only July, a little more than
three months beyond season’s end.
It just feels like it’s July 2025.
Well, scratch another
potential mentor for
Knicks rookie point guard
Frank Ntilikina off the list.
Not that Derrick Rose
really was on the list, but
league sources confirmed
he became an ex-Knick
on Monday after he met
with the Cavaliers, passed
a physical and agreed to a
one-year deal worth a reported $2.1 million.
The Cavaliers are expected to formally announce the signing of the
28-year-old former MVP
as soon as Tuesday.
Rose spent one year
with the Knicks after being acquired by thenpresident Phil Jackson in
a trade that included
sending Robin Lopez and
Jerian Grant, the last
point guard of the future
before Ntilikina, to the
Bulls.
Rose, whose love of the
triangle offense was on a
par with the affection
PETA holds for fur wearers, averaged 18.0 points
and 4.4 assists in his one
year in New York where
he made $21,323,250.
Rose, whose career has
been devastated by injury, missed the final
eight games of the season
because of a torn left meniscus. He underwent arthroscopic surgery on the
knee April 5. He missed
17 games overall last season.
There was one school of
thought that Rose might
return to the Knicks — he
claimed he wanted to —
but a league source said
the interest might have
been “overstated.”
Clevelend, which promoted assistant GM Koby
Altman to GM on Monday, has been dealing with
the Kyrie Irving escapade.
Irving has asked for a
trade and put the Knicks
on his list of four desired
destinations.
The Cavs are under no
obligation to deal Irving,
and it would be virtually
impossible for the Knicks
to acquire the All-Star
guard without including
Kristaps Porzingis in any
deal, and sources have
said the Knicks would be
reluctant to do so.

Holliday not O-K
nypost.com
SWING AND AMISS: Matt Holliday,
mired in a 5-for-44 slump since
returning from the disabled list on
July 14, has 85 strikeouts this season,
compared with 66 hits.
Paul J. Berewsill
Romine is at 39 to 37. And of course,
former teammate Chris Carter
fanned 76 times compared to 37 hits
before being cut loose.
Sunday, when Holliday went
0-for-4, was the first time he hit
fifth in Joe Girardi’s lineup. Until then it was third or fourth for
Holliday, who is respected for
what he has accomplished as a
player and in the clubhouse.
While Girardi has turned Ellsbury into a very expensive bench
player because Clint Frazier is
swinging a hot bat, there isn’t a
clear-cut replacement for Holliday in the DH slot.
Despite his defensive deficiencies, Sanchez is going to catch
the bulk of the remaining 65
games as long as he is healthy.
That eliminates him from extended DH at-bats. Todd Frazier
and Headley are needed at third
and first, respectively.
And it shouldn’t be forgotten
that Holliday played a big part in
the Yankees having a 38-23 ledger
on June 12 when they held a fourgame lead over the Red Sox. In his
first 58 games, he batted .280 (56for-200) with 13 homers, 44 RBIs
and had a .914 OPS. At that point
Holliday had 63 Ks and 56 hits.
From June 13-July 23 Holliday
played 20 games and cratered. He
batted .130 (10-for-77) with a .198
on-base percentage, a .483 OPS
and had 22 strikeouts to 10 hits.

Could struggling Chapman be in line for demotion?
By GEORGE A. KING III
While it’s hard to believe
Jacoby Ellsbury will remain
a $153 million hood ornament for the remainder of
the season with Joe Girardi’s decision to stay with
neophyte Clint Frazier as
long as he hits, but it leads
to this question:
Could the manager shuffle
New York Post, Tuesday, July 25, 2017
Don’t count the slumping Matt
Holiday among those who believe striking out is part of doing
business at the plate.
For the first time in a very productive big league career, the
Yankees’ designated hitter has
more strikeouts than hits entering Tuesday night’s game against
the Reds at Yankee Stadium —
and it gnaws at the 37-year-old
right-handed hitter.
“I don’t like that stat at all,’’
Holliday said Sunday in Seattle
after the Yankees copped three of
four from the Mariners.
The numbers Holliday are annoyed at are his 85 strikeouts to
66 hits, which play into a .238 average. Holliday was a career .303
hitter when he left St. Louis for
The Bronx and a one-year deal
for $13 million. In 13 previous big
league seasons Holliday had
1,995 hits and 1,230 strikeouts.
In talking about the increased
strikeouts, Holliday didn’t mention missing two-plus weeks
with a viral infection. Since returning July 14 from the disabled
list, he’s batting .114 (5-for-44)
with one homer, two RBIs, a .353
OPS and 14 strikeouts
“Maybe my swing is a tick off,’’
Holliday said. “Pitchers are going
more for the strikeouts.’’
Though he has only one homer
and one double since coming off
the DL, Holliday explained his
swing has improved lately.
“I feel better, but you feel better and not get results,’’ Holliday
said. “I feel like I am putting the
bat on the ball a little better.
[Sunday] there were more aggressive swings.’’
Holliday, whose lone homer
since coming back came off Boston closer Craig Kimbrel sent a
July 15 game at Fenway Park into
extra innings where the Yankees
copped a 4-1 win in 16 frames,
isn’t alone when it comes to having more whiffs than hits among
his teammates.
Seven other Yankees hitters have
more punchouts than hits. Aaron
Judge leads the group with 125 K’s
to 105 hits. Chase Headley is at
88-84 and Gary Sanchez is 69-67,
Clint Frazier, whose hot bat has
nailed Jacoby Ellsbury to the bench,
has 18 hits and 18 whiffs. Counting
his time with the White Sox, Todd
Frazier has 75 Ks to 60 hits. Austin
55
assignments in the bullpen
and move Aroldis Chapman
out of the closer role?
Girardi proved by benching Ellsbury that he isn’t
wedded to money determining playing time. Now,
with Chapman struggling in
the first leg of a five-year
deal worth $86 million,
could Girardi replace Chapman with Dellin Betances
or David Robertson?
In his last 11 appearances,
Chapman has hardly been
the dominant pitcher he
was in 2016. He is 1-1 with
four saves in six chances.
Allowing 13 hits in nine innings isn’t good, but walking
six and striking out 10 is
borderline alarming and
possibly an indication
Chapman isn’t healthy.
His fastball reaches tripledigits, but a sign that something physically is wrong
with a pitcher is lack of control and the six walks are a
red flag. So, too, is Chapman’s
inconsistent release point.
Recently, Chapman said
he hasn’t been as sharp
since returning from the
disabled list. He was on the
shelf May 14-June 18 with
left rotator cuff inflammation. Sunday in Seattle that
continued and he was bailed
out by pinch-runner Taylor
Motter being picked off first
base in the ninth inning
with no outs and the Mariners trailing, 6-4.
With Betances seemingly
over a mini-slump and Robertson’s vast experience
closing, the right-handers
are certainly capable of getting the final three outs in a
game. Betances went 6-for-6
in save chances while Chapman was on the shelf and
Robertson went 13-for-14
with the White Sox.
A big question mark about
such a move would be how
much of a bruise to Chapman’s ego the demotion
would bring.

C
LAYTON Kershaw injured
his back for a second straight
season — yet the Dodgers
were seeing the positives.
First, their initial reports were
this ailment was not nearly as bad
as in 2016, when the ace lefthander missed nine weeks with a
herniated disk. The expectation is
he will be back in four-to-six
weeks, though he still had to see
back specialist Dr. Robert Watkins.
The fringe benefit for the
Dodgers — as long as Kershaw
emerges healthy and gets back
to form in September — is the
possibility of having a fresher
No. 1 starter in the postseason.
At the time of the injury, Kershaw’s 141 ¹/₃ innings were tied
for the most in the majors.
TRADE DEADLINE CONFIDENTIAL
Two other factors to consider
with Kershaw going down:
1. Max Scherzer’s greatest competition to repeat as the NL Cy
Young winner has gone away,
meaning the Nationals’ righty is
now well-positioned to tie Kershaw for most Cys won by an active player at three.
2. It has been pretty much a foregone conclusion Kershaw would
opt out of his contract after next
season. But does a second straight
year in which his back flared up
scare the industry enough about
even the best starter of his generation to move Kershaw to just stick
with the two years at $65 million
he is owed in 2019-20?
That is a down-the-road question. In the present, Dodgers offi-
cials insist Kershaw’s injury incurred Sunday when he had to
leave after two innings does not
move them to deviate from their
trade deadline plans.
They have the majors’ best record, lead the NL West by 10 ¹/₂
games and have the muscle memory of knowing they played brilliantly without Kershaw last year.
The Dodgers’ deadline focus has
been on adding players who get
them through October, rather
than to October.
That is why their main rotation
attraction has been Texas’ Yu
Darvish, whom they could envision starting behind Kershaw and
in front of Alex Wood and Rich
Hill in a postseason series. But
the Rangers just swept the Rays
to move within 2 ¹/₂ games of the
second wild card and currently
are in a mode of trying to make
the playoffs.
If that changes in the next few
days, few organizations are as
deep in prospects — if any — to
get Darvish or Baltimore’s Zach
Britton, or both. And Los Angeles
officials know the clubhouse expects it to upgrade the roster, and
a bad vibe could be forged if nothing is done.
But their priority will be getting
Kershaw right, knowing that to
win their first title since 1988, the
Dodgers almost certainly will
need their ace performing at a
peak level, which he was this year
in going 15-2 with a 2.04 ERA —
before heading to the DL.
Durable Verlander should get ‘second’ look
HOW YOU are doing as the trade
deadline approaches matters because teams want to see health and
have a sense a player is peaking if
they are going to surrender significant prospects. Justin Verlander
had a 2.92 ERA in his two secondhalf starts heading into his outing
Monday against the Royals.
Talk about small sample sizes.
Except if this continues, this would
mark the fourth straight season Verlander was significantly better in the
second half than first.
Sixty pitchers have thrown at least
200 second-half innings since 2014 and
Verlander’s 2.80 ERA is sixth best and,
among those who exclusively pitched
for an AL team, only the 2.57 of Cleveland’s Corey Kluber is better. Among
AL pitchers, only the .608 OPS against
of Cleveland’s Carlos Carrasco is
lower than Verlander’s .619.
In addition, only David Price
(314 ²/₃ ) has thrown more secondhalf innings in that time frame than
Verlander’s 302 ²/₃ . Perhaps that
would mitigate some of the concern about the durability of a 34year-old starter with nearly 2,500
regular-season innings on his arm.
His workhorse traits, ability to still
find high highs and voluminous
postseason experience (3.39 ERA in
16 starts) could make him ideal for
the Dodgers, who can use the sturdiness/potential excellence even more
with Clayton Kershaw out four-tosix weeks. In addition, the Dodgers
are one of the few organizations that
could potentially take on most if not
all of the $56 million the righty is
owed for 2018-19, and they might be
willing to give up better prospects if
Detroit were willing to take a con-
tract like that of Scott Kazmir and/
or Hyun-jin Ryu back as some financial counterbalance.
The Cubs also are believed to be
interested in Verlander as a piece to
not only help defend their title now,
but also assist in the near future with
Jake Arrieta and John Lackey
likely leaving as free agents after the
2017 season. Houston also is viewed
as interested in Verlander.
But if the Tigers were willing to
eat money to make a deal happen, it
is possible a team such as Milwaukee, and others, could be interested.
Thin market
pushes Sox
to promote
top prospect
THE TRADE market for a
third baseman was unappetizing. The need at the hot corner,
in specific, and for a struggling
offense, in general, lingered. The
expectations to win the AL East
remained as strong as ever.
So after weeks — really
months — of insisting they
wanted to avoid injecting Rafael
Devers as a key element in the
midst of a postseason chase, the
Red Sox pivoted and called up
who is now, at age 20, the youngest player in the majors.
Call it inspiration or desperation, or some combo of both. But
the Red Sox are now going to see
if the player ranked as the majors’ sixth-best prospect on
Baseball America’s midseason
top-100 list can handle major
league responsibilities (particularly in the field), Boston and a
pennant race.
No team has a worse OPS
(.600) from third base than Boston. The Red Sox cut Pablo
Sandoval despite owing him
roughly $49 million, and players
such as Brock Holt, Tzu-Wei
Lin and Deven Marrero could
not provide strong enough
cover.
Boston was tied to Todd Frazier before he was dealt to the
Yankees. Mike Moustakas
never came on the market because the Royals fought back
into playoff contention. Others
such as San Francisco’s Eduardo Nunez, Miami’s Martin
Prado and even the Mets’ Asdrubal Cabrera were either not
attractive enough or Boston did
not like the price in prospects or
dollars.
So the Red Sox turned to Devers, who was born on the day of
the fifth game of the 1996 World
Series — when Andy Pettitte
outdueled John Smoltz in a 1-0
Yankees win over the Braves.
The elevation to The Show
comes less than two weeks after
promoting the righty hitter to
Triple-A. He hit .400 in nine
games for Pawtucket with two
homers. But the bigger concern
with Devers is whether his glove
is up to this challenge.
“Devers is a talented player
who has continued to perform
well at Triple-A, even though it
has been for a short period,” Red
Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski wrote
in a text. “We wanted to see how
he would handle the promotion
to Triple-A, not only on the field,

strikeouts. He is an extreme
flyball pitcher who benefits
from a big home park. And
his economy is not great
(six or more innings just
eight times in 20 starts).
Conversely, his strong
turnaround began last year
with the Reds and their homer-friendly park (14-8, 3.76).
But this is mainly about the
Marlins accepting who they
are. Their lack of high-end
pitching, pitching depth and
a quality farm system means
they are years away from bigtime contention. That means
maximizing pieces who can
get a large return at this moment in time.
Straily almost perfectly
fits what the Twins and
Brewers, in particular, need:
a starter who helps their
surprise contention now
and is part of good teams
moving forward. The Cubs
would love to add another
controllable starter, too. Perhaps the Mariners and Royals would have interest.

These are two pitchers
covering their ages 27-28
seasons:
Pitcher A started 50 games,
was 17-20 with an ERA 13 percent better than league average, an OPS allowed 8 percent better than league average, 2.6 walks and 8.4 strikeouts per nine innings.
Pitcher B started 51 games
(in 54 appearances), was
21-13 with an ERA 15 percent
better than league average,
an OPS allowed 9 percent
better than average, 3.1
walks and 7.9 strikeouts per
nine innings.
Pretty similar, right?
Pitcher A is Jose Quintana’s time on the White
Sox (hence before he was
traded July 13 to the Cubs)
from 2016-17. Pitcher B is the
Marlins’ Dan Straily in
2016-17 before his scheduled
start Tuesday in Texas.
It is pointed out because
Quintana netted the White
Sox a four-player package
highlighted by one of the best
prospects in the game, Eloy
Jimenez, and another in the
top 100, Dylan Cease. Meanwhile, the Marlins have essentially been shopping just
relievers (David Phelps already was dealt) and perhaps
Dee Gordon as they maintain
their more controllable players for a new owner as the
sale of the team drags on.
But is Miami missing a
great opportunity here?
There are many teams that
need starting pitching in
this market and not enough
quality to go around.
Quintana is better than
Straily — a lefty with a longer track record and higher
highs. But much of what
made Quintana alluring
similarly fits Straily. They’re
both in their primes (Straily
is 54 days older than Quintana). And they are affordable with years of control:
Quintana is making $6 million this year and is owed
$29.35 million from 2018-20.
Straily is making $552,100
this year, is not arbitration
eligible until this offseason
and will almost certainly
make less than Quintana until he is a free agent, also after the 2020 campaign.
There is reason to dig into
Straily’s baseline stats. Like
with all NL pitchers, his
numbers are fattened by facing opposing pitchers, who

top-100 prospect lists are a
nice overview of prospect
ability, but far from a bible.
Organizations value or
don’t value those on the lists
and those not on the lists in
completely different ways.
This is far from a complete
menu of star-level players,
but just to give an idea, the
following never appeared on

America, Baseball Prospectus or MLB Pipeline: Quintana, Jose Altuve, Charlie
Blackmon, Jacob deGrom,
Josh Donaldson, Paul
Goldschmidt, Robinson
Cano, Corey Kluber, Jose

At this moment, players
who were on the 2010 Baseball America Top 100 should

Montero was fourth, Brian

IN LIKE CLINT: While Clint Frazier likely will be sent back to the minors as soon as Aaron Hicks returns to the Yankees’
lineup, the rookie has made the most of his chance with 11 extra-base hits in his first 16 games.
Bill Kostroun
By DAN MARTIN
General manager Brian
Cashman made it clear last
week that despite Clint Frazier’s hot start to his career,
the outfielder’s time in the
majors is almost certain to be
brief this time around.
Cashman said he would
“send Frazier out” when
Aaron Hicks returns to the
Yankees’ lineup from a
strained right oblique that
has been slow to heal.
In the meantime, Frazier is
making the most of his opportunity.
In 63 plate appearances entering
Tuesday’s
game
against the Reds at Yankee
Stadium, the 22-year-old has
a .908 OPS and he has 11 extra-base hits in his first 16
games. The only Yankee with
more to start his career was
Joe DiMaggio, who had 13.
“He can’t control where he
lands,” said Jeff Segars, who
coached Frazier at Loganville
High School outside of Atlanta. “He knows his place
and where he is in the organization. But I knew no matter
what, once he got a taste of
the major leagues, he’s gonna
want to get back.”
With Brett Gardner, Aaron
Judge and Jacoby Ellsbury on
the roster, there won’t be
room for Frazier once Hicks
gets back.
But Frazier has already
shown why the Yankees were
so high on him when they
made him the centerpiece of
the package they received
from Cleveland in the Andrew Miller trade a year ago
next week.
Frazier was promoted from
Double-A Akron to Triple-A
Columbus less than a week
before the trade.
While with Akron, he
played for Dave Wallace, who
managed in the Indians’ system for six years. And Wallace said he isn’t surprised by
Frazier’s fast start in The
Bronx.
“He’s like another guy that
played for me, Francisco Lindor,” said Wallace, now a special assignment coordinator
for Cleveland. “They both
have an ability to exceed expectations at whatever level
they go to.”
Lindor has emerged as one
of the top shortstops in the
game. Frazier has a long way
to go to match Lindor’s résumé, but Wallace saw some
similarities.
“I look back on Francisco’s
timeline and he said he was
ready well before he got to
the majors,’’ Wallace said.
“You just think that’s a young
player being confident, which
is good. But maybe he really
was ready and we didn’t
know it. The same could be
true with Clint. Sometimes
we’re not 100 percent accurate and players adapt to a
higher level right away. Guys
like that are not common.”
The Yankees are counting
on Frazier not being common
— something he displayed in
Sunday’s win in Seattle.
Wallace was watching
when Frazier muscled a double down the left-field line
for two RBIs in the sixth inning.
“Not many guys can not
barrel a ball up and still have
the strength to get it into the
outfield like that,’’ Wallace
said. “I’m sure Statcast didn’t
love it, but it’s that kind of
play that matters just as
much as a 500-foot home run
by [Aaron] Judge. It wasn’t
very sexy, but it looked good
in the box score.”
It’s the kind of thing Wallace witnessed consistently
when he managed Frazier.
“You can’t not see it,” Wallace said. “The strength, the
speed, the path of his swing.
It probably doesn’t stand out
next to Judge the same way it
did here, but it’s different
than most. I don’t know if
he’s ready to be a core guy
yet, but he’s in a great situation with that lineup. He
doesn’t have to be. Hopefully,
he’ll evolve into that.”
He just might need to go
back to the minors before
that happens — a step back
that Frazier isn’t accustomed
to.
“He was a four-year varsity
player and he would have
been a five-year varsity
player if I could have done it,”
Segars said. “But he told me
when he was first called up it
was probably short-term because of the injuries. I’m
thankful — but not surprised
— he’s come out of the gate
strong. He’s always risen to
the challenge and this is just
the latest example. He’s making them remember him.”

That’s because 2017 has

Michael Conforto still doing

Conforto, with that gorgeous
lefty swing, is the classic No. 2
or middle-of-the-order hitter.
That is where he is best suited,
and that’s where he should
have been hitting Monday
night, when the Mets beat the

to let Conforto get comfort- he’s had success at leadoff, but
By MIKE PUMA
this is the first time in college or
the pros he has hit leadoff.
The Mets are going to need
more run producers in their future. As Conforto gets older, his
lefty swing could work wonders
in the middle of the lineup.
This is the time of the season
to give him a little more experience in that area.
In some ways Conforto is the
Mets’ version of Aaron Judge: a
humble outfielder who plays the
game right and is team-oriented.
“I think I’ve done some things I
wanted to do,” Conforto told The
Post after the victory. “I’ve
earned a spot and kind of
showed some versatility, which
was a big goal of mine. I think it’s
been a good year so far, but what
I’ve learned from last year is to
continue to keep working. I’m
looking forward to getting better.”
In 55 games as a leadoff hitter,
Conforto is batting .284 (61-for215), but here is your small-sample-size view of what Conforto
could be in the middle of the
lineup. He has 37 at-bats in the
third, fourth, fifth and sixth spots
and is hitting .324 from the middle of the lineup, including a .500
average in the three-hole. Yes, I
know it’s only 10 at-bats, but it’s
five hits in those 10 at-bats.
It’s about making his hits more
productive for the team.
The point is to let him have
more middle-of-the-order at-bats
as the season finishes so it puts
him a step ahead for the future.
The three spot is reserved, of
course, for the The Franchise,
Yoenis Cespedes.
Conforto had five at-bats Monday night, none with a runner on
base. The first four came against
lefty Clayton Richard. He struck
out three times and doubled,
then popped up in the ninth.
Twice Cespedes was intentionally walked. It would be interesting to see how Conforto would
respond to the challenge of batting behind Cespedes.
Conforto is 24. He will hit
wherever the Mets ask him to
hit. His career is rising. He could
anchor the Mets’ lineup for
years.
It’s not only about trying to
make the best trades for the future. It’s about figuring out
what’s best for your own players.
Simply put, the Mets need to
be better scouts of their own organization.
Remember in spring training,
Conforto was set to be an extra
outfielder and probably was ticketed for Las Vegas.
The Mets didn’t know what
they had then and they still may
not fully know. This is the time
of year to plug Conforto into the
second spot or middle of the order and find out.

R
SAN DIEGO — The Mets expect to make multiple trades before 4 p.m. next Monday, but a total housecleaning may not be imminent.
As it stands, team officials are
confident in finding matches that
would move Addison Reed and
Asdrubal Cabrera by the July 31
non-waiver trade deadline, but
there is less optimism deals involving Jay Bruce, Lucas Duda
and Curtis Granderson, among
others, will be consummated, according to major league sources.
The market for Reed is the
most robust, with the Dodgers,
Red Sox, Nationals, Brewers, Rays
and Cubs among the teams that
could land the right-handed reliever, who is unsigned beyond
this season and regarded as the
Mets’ best trade chip.
In an attempt to extract the best
return package while trying to
win as many games before the
deadline, the Mets could wait until the proverbial 11th hour to
trade Reed, who has seamlessly
handled the closer’s role in Jeurys
Familia’s absence following surgery to remove a blood clot from
his right shoulder.
The Mets also have multiple
teams interested in Cabrera — he
has been linked to the Mariners
and Indians, but a major league
official said there are other suitors involved — and expect to deal
the veteran infielder.
Despite Jose Reyes’ recent
surge offensively, interest for the
veteran infielder has been almost
nonexistent, with Reyes’ drop-off
defensively cited as a significant
factor.
Though Cabrera struggled at
shortstop this season, he has appeared more comfortable since
shifting to second base last month
and is viewed in the industry as a
better utility option with a higher
upside offensively than Reyes.
A flooded market for power hitters has left the Mets uncertain
whether they will deal Bruce,
Granderson and Duda, all of
whom are unsigned beyond this
season.
If the Mets can’t find a satisfactory deal for Bruce, they could
look to keep him for the remainder of the season and then extend
him a one-year qualifying offer
that would give the club draftpick compensation if he signed
elsewhere.

BLUEPRINT
TO SUCCESS
T
HE BLUE Jays were just 50-51
when they made the first of
two huge deadline deals in 2015,
obtaining Troy Tulowitzki from the
Rockies three days before landing
David Price from the Tigers.
Toronto was looking at underlying numbers, however, that suggested
it could (and probably would) play
much better. The Blue Jays’ run differential was plus-94 and the baseball Pythagorean theorem indicated
Toronto was more a 60-41 team than
50-51.
Joel Sherman
So the Blue Jays obtained Tulowitzki
and Price, and went from under .500,
three games out of the wild card and
eight behind the first-place Yankees in
the AL East to 93-69, winning the division by six games and finishing with a
plus-221 run differential.
The Yankees are sitting in a similar
situation. It is one big reason why they
tried so hard to land their Price (Jose
Quintana), did add Todd Frazier, Tommy Kahnle and David Robertson, and
probably are not through, with Sonny
Gray still a possibility.
The Yankees ended the weekend at
51-46, ranked as the top wild card (but
just barely) and 2 ¹/₂ games behind
the first-place Red Sox. But at plus104 runs, the Pythagorean theorem
indicated they should be 58-39, which
would have them in first place with
the second best record in the AL. But
the Yanks have the AL’s worst record
in one-run games at 9-19, which has
skewed their overall record. Their
hope is that bolstering their bullpen
reverses those results the rest of the
way and they take off like the 2015 Blue
Jays.
Now, the 2017 Yankees and ’15 Blue
Jays are not apples for apples. Toronto
had not made the playoffs in 22 years
— a period in which the Yanks won
five titles — and recognized what it
could do for attracting fans to get in.

the Tigers showed a willingness to pay down some of the $28

been inclined to do that or lower its

hunting a starter to say, “I don’t even

I don’t see him available in a legitimate way.”
Gray has endured injuries each of

The Yankees thought they had
assembled a package as good as the
one the Cubs used to get Quintana.
They would offer less for Gray, but
do have a deep system. Gray is attractive — if healthy — because he would
provide the strong starting innings
the 2017 Yankees need while adding
a desperately needed sure rotation
piece moving forward (he cannot be
a free agent until after the 2019 season). Oakland is telling clubs that if it

YANKEES: The young lefty

one of his four July starts and
surrendered six runs on seven
hits in his last outing against
the Twins, a 6-1 Yankees loss.
Opponents are hitting .301 off
him this month.

six starts this season, strikes
out more than 11 batters per
nine innings, and opponents

outing came Thursday against
Arizona when he gave up
four hits and four runs in six
innings in a 12-2 D’backs win.
STAT SO?
SONNY FORECAST: The Yankees — along with
the Brewers — are viewed as the favorites to get
A’s ace Sonny Gray. If they add Gray after their big
trade with the White Sox, it would be similar to the
Blue Jays’ 2015 deadline deals for David Price

But even though Ross found rap
stardom after a career as a Florida

nothing wrong with having a
backup plan.
“It’s always wonderful if you can
have 10 options. It’s a blessing,” he
says. “But, realistically, a lot of times
people don’t have [10 options]. “I

not the one to tell you what you

Just put in your work.”
And when it comes to putting in
that work Ross can still recall the
first time he felt like a boss. “My
boss moment came around the
time I made my second or third
album,” he says. “It may have been
a certain dollar figure ... I finally
made it. But it wasn’t just about
the dollar figure, it was about the
investments that I was making and
the track that I was on. But there’s
still a lot of work for me to do. I’m
still a student of the game.”
The 41-year-old single father of
two now lives in the former Georgia home of heavyweight Evander
Holyfield, which he purchased for
$5.8 million. And with 109 rooms to
occupy, Ross is looking to fill them.
“I wouldn’t say I’m looking for
love, but I am looking for loyalty,”
he says. “Loyalty is priceless.”

(Some were angry that
