Public Advocate Letitia James has
filed papers with the state Board of
Elections declaring her intention to
run for attorney general in the fall.
The news comes days after she
withdrew her name from consideration for appointment as interim AG
to temporarily replace Eric Schneiderman — who resigned in disgrace
amid allegations that he physically
abused four women.
Solicitor General Barbara Under-
wood became acting AG when
Schneiderman resigned last week.
But the Legislature has the power
to name an interim AG and on Tuesday was interviewing potential candidates — including Underwood —
who would serve through the end of
the year.
James (right), an attorney with a
degree from Howard University, is
expected to face a crowded Democratic field in the Sept. 13 primary.

The NYPD will be changing
how it enforces marijuana laws,
Mayor de Blasio announced Tuesday — as Manhattan DA Cyrus
Vance Jr. said he will stop prosecuting pot cases starting Aug. 1.
“The NYPD will overhaul and
reform its policies related to marijuana enforcement in the next 30
days,” de Blasio said during a
speech at the Center for American
Progress Ideas Conference in
Washington.
The mayor said he wants New
York City to be the safest — and
fairest — big city in America and
the change was needed to address
remaining inequalities.
“We must and we will end unnecessary arrests and end disparity in enforcement,” de Blasio said.
“It’s time for those to be a thing of
the past in New York City and all
over this country.”
Last year, 86 percent of those arrested for low-level marijuana possession in the five boroughs were
black or Hispanic, according to statistics provided by the City Council.

— Mayor de Blasio
—
De Blasio’s announcement came
as Council Speaker Corey Johnson
was holding a press conference
with the Rev. Al Sharpton at City
Hall to demand an end to arrests
for low-level marijuana offenses.
“I’m calling on the NYPD to, instead of making arrests when
someone is smoking pot, they
should issue a summons — that’s a
big difference,” Johnson said.
After the mayor spoke, Vance
said his office would stop prosecuting marijuana-possession and
-use cases as of Aug. 1.
“The District Attorney’s Office
has invited the city of New York to
recommend limited exceptions to
this policy grounded in demonstrated public-safety concerns before the policy becomes effective,”
the DA’s Office said in a statement.
Under one analysis, the policy is
expected to reduce marijuana
prosecutions in the borough from
about 5,000 a year to approximately 200, according to the DA.
Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez also
weighed in Tuesday, saying his
office would expand a pilot program begun three months ago and
stop prosecuting marijuana cases
except those that raise “publicsafety concerns.”
Bronx DA Darcel Clark urged the
NYPD to issues summonses instead of making arrests for pot use.
There were 17,880 arrests for
low-level marijuana possession in
New York City in 2017.
De Blasio is leaving the precise
changes in enforcement up to
the NYPD.
“My mandate to the NYPD is:
Come up with a new vision in the
next 30 days so we can go right at
those disparities,” de Blasio told CBS
News after his speech. “You shouldn’t
have different arrest rates for different demographic communities.”
NYPD Commissioner James
O’Neill confirmed that he’ll empanel a 30-day working group.

Mike’s Calif. dreaming Mangano, Singh a ‘biz’
Former Mayor Mike Bloomberg
has plopped down $1.5 million to
help elect former LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa as California’s next
governor.
Bloomberg wrote the check to a
PAC called Families & Teachers for
Villaraigosa, a big supporter of
charter schools, also a major issue
for the ex-New York City mayor.
Other wealthy donors have joined
Bloomberg in backing Villaraigosa:
Netflix founder Reed Hastings
kicked in $7 million and entrepreneur Eli Broad gave $2.5 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Villaraigosa’s chief rival in the
June 5 primary is Lt. Gov. and former San Francisco Mayor Gavin
Newsom.

They had bribery down to a
business.
A federal prosecutor Tuesday told
jurors during closing statements in
the bribery case against former
Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano that his relationship with corrupt businessman Harendra Singh
was “not a friendship.”
“This is a business,’’ prosecutor
Raymond Tierney said.
Mangano is accused of helping
Singh land loans in exchange for
things such as a lucrative no-show
job for Mangano’s wife, Linda, and a
$7,000 Panerai watch for son Sal.
Mangano’s lawyer fired back in
his closings that “Harendra Singh
probably told 400 lies on the stand.”

Bill Cosby will be sentenced on Sept. 24 — five
months after he was convicted of sexual assault, but
more than two months earlier than his lawyers had requested.
They had asked Montgomery County, Pa., Judge Steven
O’Neil to delay sentencing
until December.
Cosby turns 81 in July and
is likely to face a sentence of
up to 10 years in prison.
He has been restricted to
his suburban Philadelphia
mansion since the April 26
conviction. That’s the home
where jurors concluded he
drugged and molested a former Temple University athletics administrator in 2004.
O’Neill ordered Cosby outfitted with a GPS monitoring
bracelet and said he must
have permission to leave the
house, and only then to meet
with lawyers or see a doctor.
Before sentencing, Cosby
must undergo an assessment
to determine if he is a sexually violent predator.
Cosby’s spokesman did not
respond to a message seeking comment.

They’re out to gut Airbnb.
A bill being drafted in the City
Council could sound a death
knell for online home-sharing
services in the Big Apple.
The measure would require
Airbnb and its competitors to
provide the Mayor’s Office of
Special Enforcement with the
addresses of all their listings.
Hosts would have to hand over
their names and addresses, as
well as report whether they are
renting just a room or the entire
unit — information that many
tenants would be loathe to share
with the government.
A similar law in San Francisco
led to an immediate 50 percent
drop in Airbnb listings, with
10,000 posted in August 2017 and
just 5,500 in January 2018, when
the measure took effect, according
Push to hobble
short ‘sublets’
to the San Francisco Chronicle.
If the proposed New York law
has a similar impact, that could
mean half the city’s 52,653 active
Airbnb listings would disappear
in a matter of months.
Councilwoman and bill sponsor Carlina Rivera (D-Manhattan) said the potential purge will
leave rules-abiding hosts intact.
“Our number one goal with
this legislation is to remove the
bad actors that Airbnb has
already admitted exist in their
system today,” she said.
“Since Airbnb appears unable or
unwilling to remove these users
who are illegally taking rent-regulated and -stabilized units away
from New Yorkers who desperately need them, we must give the
Office of Special Enforcement the
data that will enable them to complete that enforcement.”
State law bars subletting apartments for fewer than 30 days, unless the tenant whose name is on
the lease is present in the home.
Additionally, tenants in rentregulated apartments must obtain written permission from
their landlord 30 days prior to
Pope Francis said Tuesday he
has thought about when it might
be time to “take leave” of his flock
— a cryptic comment that could
hint at another papal retirement
or a suggestion to other bishops
that it’s time to go.
During his morning homily,
Francis, 81, reflected on a biblical
passage of St. Paul discerning
when it was time to leave his flock
in the care of others: “When I read
this, I think about myself, because
. . . I’ll have to take my leave.”
Francis’ predecessor, Pope
Benedict XVI, retired in 2013, becoming the first pope to resign in
598 years.
Francis may have also been referring to Chilean bishops implicated in a sex-abuse scandal. Francis opened three days of an emergency summit with the 34 Chilean
bishops Tuesday, and there is
widespread expectation that at
least some of them will offer to resign by the end of it.

Critics say Airbnb causes
higher rents for New Yorkers by
removing long-term housing
from the market, and also endangers guests because apartments
are subject to different safety
codes than hotels.
Airbnb official Josh Meltzer
said the bill is a gift to the Hotel
Trades Council “that solely aims
to frighten hardworking New
Yorkers.”

Nxivm ‘human smuggle’ rap brewing
The serious legal woes facing accused sex-cult leader Keith Raniere
and his sidekick, “Smallville” actress Allison Mack, could include
“human smuggling” and “alien harboring,” according to a new filing
in Brooklyn federal court.
The court papers lay out how
sensitive evidence involving the
victims of Raniere’s Nxivm cult
should be handled, according to
prosecutors, and say that in addition to the sex-trafficking and
forced-labor charges with which
the suspects have already been
hit, some materials in the case
identify “victims of human smuggling [and] alien harboring.”
Human smuggling refers to the
importation of illegal immigrants
into the United States or the harboring of illegal immigrants already here.
This language had not previously
been mentioned in the case and
could suggest new charges may be
filed against Raniere and Mack.
Prosecutors said earlier this
month that they intend to charge
additional crimes and defendants.
The government warned in the
documents that the materials are
so damaging that they will have to

Police called to investigate a
domestic disturbance in a southern German town found a man arguing with a parrot. A resident in Loerrach, near the Swiss border, called the emergency number Monday to report his concerns about shout­
ing from a next­door apartment that had been going on for some time, police said on Tuesday. Officers sent to the scene found there was a loud argument going on — but it was be­
tween a 22­year­old man and a parrot. The man told them he had been annoyed with the bird, which belonged to his girl­
friend. Since no one was hurt, the officers left. AP

N. Korea
threatens
summit nix
Won’t give up nukes
By BOB FREDERICKS
North Korea threatened to back
out of next month’s scheduled
summit with President Trump if
the United States insists on denuclearization in exchange for lifting economic sanctions, according to a statement early Wednesday from one of Kim Jong-un’s
top officials.
The tough talk came after the
Hermit Kingdom on Tuesday had
already
ended
weeks of peaceful
overtures by canceling a planned
meeting with South
Korea and saying it
could back out of
the June 12 summit
with Trump in Singapore due to ongoing joint US-South
Korea
military
drills.
Kim’s (right) first
vice foreign minister,
Kim Kye-gwan, on
Wednesday continued bashing the
fragile peace process, saying that
there would be no talks if denuclearization is the table.
“We will not be interested in
talks anymore if [they] only try to
push us unilaterally into a corner
and force us to give up nuclear
weapons,” he said in a statement
carried by the state media. “It
would be inevitable to reconsider
whether to respond to the upcoming summit with the US.”
The statement also criticized
“high-ranking officials of the
White House and the Department of State, including [National
Security Adviser John] Bolton,”
for “letting loose the assertions of
the so-called Libya mode of nuclear abandonment, [which is]
complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization.”
“I cannot suppress indignation
at such moves of the US,” Kim
Kye-gwan said, adding that North
Korea could not “hide our feeling
of repugnance” toward Bolton.
On Tuesday, State Department
spokeswoman Heather Nauert
said the US was still planning to
go ahead with the summit.
The two-week joint US-South
Korea drills began Friday involving 100 warplanes, the Seoul’s
Yonhap news agency said.
The North’s Korean Central
News Agency claimed those
drills were a rehearsal for an invasion of the North
and a provocation.
“This exercise targeting us, which is
being carried out
across South Korea,
is a flagrant challenge to the [April
27]
Panmunjom
Declaration
[for
peace and eventual
reunification] and an
intentional military
provocation running
counter to the positive development on the Korean Peninsula,”
the KCNA report said.
The State Department said the
North-South cancellation had
caught the US by surprise.
“We haven’t had a whole lot of
time to dig into that,” Nauert told
reporters in a hastily arranged
briefing. “I will say that Kim
Jong-un had said previously that
he understands the need and the
utility of the United States and
[South Korea] continuing in joint
exercises.”
There was no immediate comment on the latest North Korean
statement.
The June US-North Korean
summit would be the first between a sitting US president and
a North Korean leader. The meeting was expected to be a major
diplomatic achievement for President Trump.

BORDER
Israel: 8 Hamas
bombers killed
By YARON STEINBUCH
Israeli commandos thwarted an attempted incursion by a cell of eight
Hamas operatives at the border fence in
Gaza — killing the armed terrorists during Monday’s protests, the Israeli army
said Tuesday.
Alerted to a plot to breach the fence
with explosives, members of the elite
Maglan unit took positions at the expected attack site in the northern Gaza
Strip, The Times of Israel reported.
“There, eight armed terrorists began
throwing pipe bombs and grenades at the
troops and the fence,” the Israel Defense
Forces said in a statement.
Surveillance footage of the clash
showed the militants hiding behind a pile
of burning tires. As an Israeli army vehicle pulled up, at least six explosives were
seen being hurled toward the border.
“In order to drive them back from the
fence, the troops used riot dispersal
means. In response, the Hamas terror
operatives opened fire at them,” the
IDF said.
Once the Hamas members opened fire,
a group of protesters in the area quickly
dispersed and the Israeli forces were able
to launch their counterattack, the Israeli
commander at the scene said.
“The masses completely scattered and
so I gave the order to open fire,” said the
commander, whose name was withheld
by the military.
“The soldiers operated professionally,
with great courage and accuracy, and
prevented a serious shooting attack
against our troops,” he said.
Pistols, hand grenades, explosives, wire
cutters and crowbars were recovered at
the site, according to military officials,
who said the Hamas team’s plan was to
cross the border into Israel “under the
cover of civilian [protesters].”
After the foiled attack, the IDF said it
also struck a Hamas outpost in the Gaza
Strip using a tank and aircraft.
The IDF also said its aircraft struck 11
“terror targets” in a Hamas compound
Tuesday.
The IDF said at least 24 of the Palestinians killed during massive protests on
Monday were militants. A total of 59 were
killed and 1,200 wounded as Israeli forces
fired on the protest, which coincided
with the opening of the new US Embassy
in Jerusalem, according to reports.
Monday was by far the bloodiest crossborder violence since a 2014 war between
Hamas and Israel.
“Most of the people killed belonged
to the Hamas terror group, and some to
the Palestinian Islamic Jihad,” the IDF
said Tuesday, citing the findings of a
joint probe with the Shin Bet security
service.
While there was no breach of the border fence, where some of the Palestinians
lobbed explosive devices and firebombs
at troops, the IDF said many protesters
tried to enter Israel Monday.
Meanwhile, two more Palestinians
were killed by Israeli gunfire Tuesday
and 160 others were injured as Palestinians held protests to mark the Nakba
(“The Catastrophe” in Arabic) — the creation of Israel in 1948 when hundreds of
thousands fled or were driven from their
homes.
Unlike the roughly 40,000 people
who took part in Monday’s border
clashes, only about 4,000 turned out
Tuesday to protest along the security
fence, where they threw rocks and Molotov cocktails.
Riots also erupted in the West Bank,
where a border police officer and a soldier suffered light wounds from rocks.
Soldiers responded mostly with less
lethal riot-dispersal methods, including tear gas and rubber bullets, the IDF
said.
“They are operating in accordance with
the rules of engagement,” the army said.
On Tuesday, Palestinians also observed
a strike in Gaza as they attended funerals
for those killed in the clashes, which
their leaders have labeled a massacre.
Israel says it has acted in self-defense at
its borders, an assertion backed by the
United States.
Israel claims it uses live fire only as a
last resort. It says it begins with verbal
warnings and leaflets dropped from the
sky that urge people to stay away from
the border, and then resorts to “nonlethal” tactics, such as tear gas to disperse the crowds.

Gov. Cuomo has delayed a trip to
Israel amid the violence in Gaza.
He planned the visit last week,
but applied the brakes Tuesday, after confrontations between Palestinians and Israeli troops on the
border with Gaza on Monday.
“Last week, after missiles were
fired toward the Golan Heights,
Governor Cuomo announced a trip
to visit the area and meet with Israeli leadership. Israel is now engaged on multiple fronts, including
significant hostility and loss of life
on the Gaza border,” Cuomo’s office said in a statement.
Israeli forces have killed 61 protesters in the Gaza confrontations,
including eight armed terrorists officials say were plotting to breach
the border fence with explosives.

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley on
Tuesday lauded Israel for its “restraint” during deadly clashes with
Palestinian protesters and denied the
violence was triggered by the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem.
“Who among us
would accept this type
of activity on your border? No one would. No
country in this chamber would act with
more restraint than Israel has,” Haley (inset)
said during a discussion in the UN
Security Council on Monday’s unrest at the Gaza-Israel border.
Kuwait called for the emergency
session to discuss the upheaval after 59 Palestinians were killed by
Israeli troops on Monday. Two
more died on Tuesday.
Haley rejected the idea that the
protests were prompted by Monday’s embassy opening ceremony,
saying Hamas had been inciting violence “long before the United States
decided to move our embassy.”
“Those who suggest the Gaza violence has anything to do with the
location of the American Embassy
are sorely mistaken,” she said.
“Rather, the violence comes from
those who reject the existence of
the state of Israel in any location.
“Such a motivation — the destruction of a United Nations member
state — is so illegitimate as to not be
worth our time in the Security Council,” she continued.

DECENT ODDS: The
city’s shuttered OTB
parlors could be
resurrected if New York
allows sports betting.
By CARL CAMPANILE
and BRUCE GOLDING
Sketchy gambling parlors will be
making their Big Apple comeback
if an influential Democratic lawmaker gets his way.
Mount Vernon Assemblyman
Gary Pretlow, who chairs the Racing and Wagering Committee, said
he wants to bring back the city’s
scandal-scarred Off Track Betting
Corp. as part of any deal to legalize sports betting following Monday’s US Supreme Court ruling.
“We need the OTBs and racinos
to offer sports betting. Someone
from Brooklyn is not going to
travel to go to Monticello to bet on
the Yankees,” Pretlow said Tuesday. “New York City doesn’t have
OTBs. They will again.”
The state shut down the New
York City OTB in 2010 after the
public corporation — which operated about 50 storefront gambling
dens and served as a patronage
mill for crooked political hacks —
went bankrupt.
Five other OTB corporations still
operate across the state, allowing
bettors to wager on horse races at
remote tracks from 170 locations,
including 50 on Long Island.
One of the shuttered city sites,

OTB comeback
in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood, is now home to the Awesome Organic Market.
Hector Rodriguez, who owns
the nearby Azena Jewelry store,
recalled how degenerate gamblers
“were religiously there, every single day.”
“Money that should be going
home, they were spending it at
OTB,” said Rodriguez, 42.
“They didn’t have much, but the
person that was going to OTB,
they had an addiction and they
needed to fill that addiction.”

manager of the Tent & Trails
camping store two doors away.
“The people looked sad . . . They
were hoping to win the big pot
and waiting for their horse to

Pretlow said he was “working
on” a bill to legalize sports betting,
adding: “It’ll come out shortly.”
But with the legislative session
drawing to a close next month,
Gov. Cuomo said Monday that he
doesn’t “expect any action this
year,” meaning the state will lose

Sweeney said the Garden State

Uber, Lyft end sex-suit bans
Ride-share apps Uber and
Lyft will no longer bar customers from taking them to
court over sex-assault claims,
the companies announced
Tuesday.
Customers
previously
waived many of their rights
when signing up for the services. In addition to being able
to pursue claims against the
firms only via internal arbitration, they weren’t allowed
to even talk publicly about assault incidents if they got
money from the firms.
The rules were designed to
protect the companies’ liability; individual drivers could
still be arrested and convicted of crimes.
But “we have learned it’s
important to give sexual-assault and harassment survivors control of how they pursue their claims,” Uber’s
chief legal officer, Tony West,
said in a statement.
Shortly after Uber’s announcement, Lyft made the
same changes.

‘attack’
on boy, 6
A Harlem school aide with
a history of violence attacked
a 6-year-old pupil , leaving
the child traumatized — with
a ripped shirt and “deep
scratch marks across his
chest,” the boy’s mother
charges in a $10 million lawsuit filed Tuesday.
The child, identified in
court papers as “JL,” on Dec.
7 told his mom, Bernadette
Torres, that “an adult with a
green shirt and a beard aggressively grabbed him by
his shirt and dragged him,’’
according to her Manhattan
Supreme Court.
A PS 194 Countee Cullen
teacher identified the boy’s
attacker as an aide, “Mr. Kaseem,’’ legal papers say. A
school source identified the
man as Kaseem Gordon.
Other parents told Torres
the aide also “assaulted their
children but that the school
never took any action
against him,’’ the suit says.
Torres met with the
school’s assistant principal,
and the aide four days later —
and Gordon claimed he was
breaking up a fight involving
the boy, according to the suit.
He later admitted that he
“may or may not have
ripped JL’s shirt” dragging
him off a stage, the suit says.
The principal and the
aide’s supervisor later both
“admitted that Kaseem attacked JL and acknowledged
Mr. Kaseem’s troubled past
of assaulting students but
concluded that he would remain employed at the
school,’’ according to the suit.
Gordon told The Post on
Tuesday he knows nothing
about the incident.
He has been suspended
since February, according to
a statement from the city
Department of Education.

‘Assaults’ pro golfer after bad round
By JACKIE SALO
He didn’t make par, so she took a
slice. PGA star Lucas Glover’s wife
was arrested for violently attacking
the golfer over his poor showing at
The Players Championship, authorities said.
Krista Glover was busted Saturday at a home the couple (inset)
rented in Ponte Vedra, Fla., not far
from the competition at TPC
Sawgrass.
Krista, 36, is accused of causing
bodily harm when she “forcefully
attacked” the 2009 US Open winner and his mother in front of the
couple’s two children, ages 3 and 5,
according to the St. Johns County
Sheriff’s Office.
When cops arrived, Lucas told
them that “when he plays a bad
round of golf, Krista proceeds to
start an altercation with him and
tell[s] him how he is a loser and a
p---y,” the police report said.
He said she then continued berating him about “how he needs to fire
everyone and how he’d better win,
or her and the kids would leave him
and he would never see the kids
again,” according to the report.

An embattled NYPD detective
claims he’s been repeatedly forced
to pee in a cup and have hair
shaved off his legs as part of campaign of illegal retaliation for filing discrimination complaints
against the city.
In a $5 million notice of claim,
Detective David Terrell alleges
that the NYPD uses a computer
algorithm to ensure minority cops
get drug-tested more frequently
than their white counterparts.
Terrell, who is African-American, told The Post he underwent a
urine test on Sept. 23 and hair
tests on March 15 and April 27.
“The last time, I got cut,” he
said. “It wasn’t that bad a cut, but
they shouldn’t have done that.”
The NYPD referred questions
to the city Law Department,
which said it “will review the notice of claim.”

Betsy

visits the
Manhattan
HS for
Girls on
Tuesday.
By SELIM ALGAR
Education Reporter
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos visited an elite Manhattan
yeshiva Tuesday amid growing
concerns over shoddy secular
instruction at some Orthodox
Jewish schools.
Making her first visit to a city
classroom since becoming the
nation’s education chief, DeVos
spent nearly four hours with faculty and students at the private
Manhattan HS for Girls on East
70th Street.
Critics have been ratcheting
up pressure on Jewish schools,
arguing that kids are being denied basic academics in favor of
all-encompassing religiosity.
DeVos met with representatives of Agudath Israel of America, an influential Jewish advocacy group, in March of last year
to discuss the increasingly contentious matter.
The group’s executive vice
president,
Chaim
Dovid
Zwiebel, said DeVos initiated
Tuesday’s school visit and
planned to drop in on a boys’ yeshiva Wednesday as part of a
two-day New York swing.
Zwiebel acknowledged Tuesday that the quality of secular in-

right to emphasize religious education for their kids.
“In the Hasidic community,
the greatest dream parents have
is that their child should grow
up to be a scholar of Jewish law,”
he said. “We believe in free exercise of religion as a constitutional value. How one educates
one’s child is at the very core of
that value.”
Zwiebel also suggested that religious instruction can be just as
intellectually demanding as secular subjects.

The Trump administration is considering using
military bases to house migrant kids — as part of its
new plan to separate children from parents caught
crossing the border illegally,
according to a new report.
Department of Health
and Human Services officials plan on visiting four
Army and Air Force facilities in Texas and Arkansas
over the next two weeks
to see if they can be
used as shelters, The
Washington Post reported Tuesday.
Attorney
General
Jeff Sessions last week
announced a new
plan to split up families caught sneaking
into the US from
Mexico — placing
the kids in shelters
or with other relatives while their
moms and dads are
held in immigration jails and prosecuted.
But HHS's current
facilities are at 91 percent
capacity, and the scheme
could send thousands
more kids into government care. Agents arrested
more than 100,000 bordercrossers in March and
April, according to the report.

So Nixon’s zinger is fair play,

C
YNTHIA Nixon is new
to politics, but she’s already skilled at some of
its customs. That’s not a
compliment.
Nixon’s Tuesday vow that she
would appoint a Moreland Commission to investigate Albany
corruption on Day One of her
administration was a clever
zinger aimed at her primary opponent, Gov. Cuomo. It was a
sharp reminder of Cuomo’s disastrous fumble of a similar
promise in his first term.
After repeatedly vowing to appoint a Moreland Commission,
and then pulling back, Cuomo finally went forward in June of
2013. He stocked the team with
law-enforcement offi­
offiseasoned law­enforcement
cials and gave it sweeping powers.
When I asked him then
whether he was seriously comcom­
mitted to a thorough excavation
of the capital rot, the governor
responded firmly, “As serious as
a heart attack.”
Which he was — until he
wasn’t. Nine months later, he
suddenly pulled the plug in a popo­
litical deal with the very legislalegisla­
tive leaders the panel was supsup­
posed to be investigating.
It was a mistake that nearly
ended his career. Federal proseprose­
cutors, as part of a larger probe
into Cuomo’s office, made a
showy move to pick up the comcom­
mission’s files for their own corcor­
ruption cases and even looked
into whether the governor comcom­
mitted any crimes by interfering
with the panel’s work and prepre­
maturely shutting it down. They
found nothing worthy of
charges, but Cuomo’s reputation
has never recovered.
Nixon reprises much of that
history in a press release of her
announcement, which was
sparked by reports that the
Manhattan US attorney is
There he goes again.
John Brennan, Barack
Obama’s last CIA director,
has given up any pretense of
being a statesman and
jumped into the partisan fray
with both fists. He regularly
tweets such harsh insults and
attacks on the president that
he makes the fiery Elizabeth
Warren look mild-mannered
by comparison.
Here’s what Brennan wrote
last week:
“Today, Donald Trump
simultaneously lied about
the Iranian nuclear deal,
undermined global
confidence in US
commitments, alienated our
closest allies, strengthened
Iranian hawks, & gave North
Korea more reason to keep
its nukes. This madness is a
danger to our national
security.”
He followed that Monday
with this love letter:
“Deaths in Gaza result of
utter disregard of Messers
Trump & Netanyahu for
Palestinian rights &
homeland. By moving
Embassy to Jerusalem,
Trump played politics,
destroyed US peacemaker
role. New generation of
Israelis/Palestinians need to
isolate extremists to find
path to peace.”
Many Trump supporters
are understandably outraged,
charging that Brennan is
disgracing the intelligence
services with such blatant
displays of over-the-top
partisanship.
They are right, but there is
another way to look at
Brennan’s attacks. Each one
proves how much he hates
Trump, and probably always
did.
That bolsters the calls for
an investigation to reveal
what role Brennan played in
the Obama administration’s
bid to tip the election to
Hillary Clinton, and whether
he abused his CIA office to
undermine Trump after the
election.
Seems like a fair trade to
me: Brennan can tweet his
little heart out, and America
gets to see whether he was a
dirty cop.

PODHORETZ
David Corio/Redferns
T
OM Wolfe, who died Monday at the age of 88, carried
his Virginia accent with
him for the rest of his days.
He famously, or notoriously,
dressed himself in a creamy
white suit whose purpose
seemed to be to say, “Whatever I
am, I am not one of you.” And
yet Tom Wolfe was surely one of
the most consequential New
Yorkers who ever lived.
Wolfe arrived in New York in
1962 to write for a magazine
called . . . New York. Almost immediately, he achieved an understanding of the workings of this
city and its elite that few writers
before him ever even began to
glimpse. He had Edith Wharton’s cold-eyed capacity for portraying the triumphs of the undeserving, John O’Hara’s exquisite sense of the invisible but immovable power of social stratification, and Damon Runyon’s
ability to mythologize the thirdrate.
Wolfe was the rarest of birds
— a satirist who was not an exaggerator. In his 1987 masterpiece, “The Bonfire of the Vanities,” Wolfe’s indelible caricatures of Manhattan society (the
bone-thin “social X-rays” eating
a lettuce leaf at lunch, the
“lemon tarts” who replaced the
social X-rays as the second
wives) were only caricatures because the people he was describing had themselves hardened
into caricatures.
His pitiless gaze was deployed
to immortal effect in his 1970 essay “Radical Chic,” wherein he
simply described a party thrown
at Leonard Bernstein’s apartment to raise funds for the Black
Panthers. If a greater journalistic
portrait of New York City exists,
in any era, I don’t know what it
might be.
Wolfe’s primary targets were
the limousine liberals (a term he
popularized in the piece) panting at the supposed authenticity
of these original gangsta political
radicals and their ludicrous effort to bring violent revolution
to overthrow the very society
that had showered Bernstein and
his friends with riches and comfort and fame and influence beyond all reason.
Wolfe shows us Bernstein talking at Panther Don Cox beside
his glorious grand piano: “ ‘When
you walk into this house, into this
building’ — and he gestures
vaguely as if to take it all in, the
moldings, the sconces, the Roquefort morsels rolled in crushed
nuts, the servants, the elevator
attendant and the doorman
downstairs in their white dickeys, the marble lobby, the brass
struts on the marquee out front
— ‘when you walk into this
house, you must feel infuriated!’”
The grave misunderstanding
that led Bernstein to invite Wolfe
to his party was to confuse
Wolfe’s radical literary style with
radical politics. In fact, Wolfe
was a bone-deep conservative alternately amused and disgusted
by the moral materialism of the
New York elite — the desperate
and unending hunger to buy everything, even virtue, even the
things that can’t be bought.
But there are finely etched
portraits too of the people at the
party who weren’t under the
Panther sway. He quotes Barbara
Walters challenging a Panther:
“I’m talking as a white woman
who has a white husband, who is
a capitalist, or an agent of capitalists, and I am, too, and I want
to know if you are to have your
freedom, does that mean we
have to go!”
In response to which, Wolfe
takes out his caricaturist’s quill
and writes: “Barbara Walters and
her husband, Lee Guber, a producer, up against the wall in the
cellar in Ekaterinburg.” That is
where the family of the last Russian czar was murdered by
Lenin’s communists.
“The Bonfire of the Vanities,”
of course, set a fictional version
of a Bernstein neighbor — a
Master of the Universe banker —
on a literal collision course with
the racial politics of 1980s New
York. He gets his comeuppance
for his vanity, and pretty much so
does everyone else in this Hogarthian book. In the end, as the
Prince says in “Romeo and Juliet,” all are punished.
What saves Wolfe’s work from
descending into nihilism is the
extraordinary American exuberance of his prose — his work
reads as if Huck Finn grew up
and went to Yale and got a Ph.D
(as Wolfe did) before realizing
he could not be “sivilized” to
stand in front of a classroom and
just teach. He needed to light out
for the uncivilized territories of
the five boroughs, where the
American elite spent and continue to spend their lives playing
status games they cannot win.
We shall not see Tom Wolfe’s
like again.

Smokey
sings bill
praises
Smokey Robinson was the
star witness before the Senate Judiciary Committee on
Tuesday, speaking in support of a bill that would require Internet radio stations
to pay royalties for music
created before 1972, arguing
that aging artists could use
the paychecks.
The soul-music icon had
some big-name backup: In
the audience were Dionne
Warwick, 77, Mary Wilson,
74, and Darlene Love, 76.
“I know a lot of musicians
and producers and writers
who have fallen on hard
times and who could really
use that money,” Robinson,
78, told lawmakers. “An arbitrary date on the calendar
should not be an arbiter of
value.”
In the 1970s, Congress
moved to protect sound recordings from Feb. 15, 1972,
and after. The Music Modernization Act — which
passed the House unanimously last month, with its
Senate counterpart introduced Thursday — would
“fix the quirk in the law,” as
Robinson put it, to get pre1972 recordings covered as
well.
The bill has the broad
support of the music industry, including performers,
songwriters and publishers.
The legislation also has the
backing of digital service
providers.

Memorial Day
Amal’s Met designer debacle
Page
Six®
THE Met Gala is over, but the fallout from a
high-level fashion drama over Amal Clooney’s glamorous gown lingers on.
Page Six has exclusively learned that Amal
infuriated powerful fashion forces at Vogue
and designer Tom Ford’s team after his atelier had toiled for weeks to make a custom Met
Gala gown for her — and she decided hours
before the event not to wear it.
Media sources tell us that the famed humanrights attorney decided at the last minute to
walk the red carpet in a dramatic “backup” outfit by hot British designer Richard Quinn, a
bustier and pants with a billowing floral train.
We’re told that when Amal told the Tom Ford
Emily
Smith
esmith@nypost.com
team about the last-minute change, “they were
annoyed, obviously, but they were gracious, and
said it was fine to go with [another designer],
but they would prefer that Amal not wear the
dress at all if she wasn’t going to wear it on the
Met Ball red carpet.” Vogue also lobbied Amal
to stick to the original script, we’re told.
Ford’s fashion house had hoped, if Amal
didn’t debut the dress — a full-length crimson
number designed to look like a stained-glass
window, in keeping with the Met Gala’s theme,
“Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic
Imagination” — that they would be able to
show it at a different A-list occasion on another star, sources said.
But they were stunned — and furious —
when Amal ignored their request and, after
the media blitz of the red carpet, changed into
the Tom Ford dress once inside at the more
private affair. Vogue editor Anna Wintour
said on “The Late Show” that Amal had insisted on changing gowns in the museum’s gift
shop. Amal wore it for the rest of the night.
We’re also told that Vogue staffers — who coordinate the red carpet for the gala, often brokering arrangements between designers and stars
— were mortified by the debacle, especially as
Amal is Vogue’s May cover star. Reps for Vogue
and Tom Ford declined to comment, and reps for
Quinn and Amal didn’t get back to us.

“Thanks for inviting me to your

Michael Bloomberg, Ray Dalio
and David Tepper. During the
auction, Robin Hood founder Paul

Robin Hood costume. He poked
fun at the vanity of the crowd by insisting poverty would not exist if
the wealthy crowd had given all the
money they’d spent on beauty and
Viagra in the past 30 years, and he
sang “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My
Brother.” Jennifer Lopez closed
the night with a performance, as
her beau Alex Rodriguez handed
her a Yankees hat for “Jenny From

Oprah Winfrey, who gave a rousing speech, as well at Michael

the star “came back in 10 minutes

After waiting about 30 minutes,
J.Law — in a denim jacket with
“perv” written across the back —
“came up to check on the status of
their table” and nabbed a coveted

bringing up the girl with Lander as his own. One source said, “Robert
loves this little baby girl. He’s fully involved in her life. It is amazing to
see him with her. It’s a side of him that people never see.” A Patriots rep
told Page Six, “Last fall, Ricki Noel Lander became the proud mother of
a beautiful, healthy baby. While Robert Kraft is not the biological father,
he is thrilled with Ricki’s blessing of having a healthy child.”

By KEVIN SHEEHAN
and LIA EUSTACHEWICH
A decrepit safe stuffed with
cash and jewelry was found in a
Staten Island yard — and neighbors believe it was ditched there
by the infamous “Ninja Burglar”
during a getaway.
For years, Matthew Emanuel
mistook the hunk of rusted, rotting metal in the yard of his
Wooddale Avenue home as an
electrical box until two weeks
ago, when landscapers made a
stunning discovery — it was actually a safe.
“The dial was face-down and
there was poison ivy back there,
so you couldn’t really see it until
the deer ate the arborvitae,”
Emanuel told The Post Tuesday.
“When they were pulling
them out, they flipped over the
safe.”
Using a pickax, Emanuel and
the landscapers opened up the
safe and found zippered bags
containing $50,000 in cash and
baubles.
The load included dozens of
gold rings and necklaces with
jade pendants, a carat-plussized diamond engagement ring,
a wedding band with three big
diamonds, a solitaire diamond
necklace and two pairs of diamond earrings.
Emanuel also peeled off hundreds of sopping wet, mostly
$100 bills.
Inside a zipped pleather
pouch was a Brooklyn address.
A quick Google search showed
it was that of a building that belonged to a neighbor who lived
two doors down from Emanuel.
“I walked over and asked if
they had ever been robbed,”
Emanuel said. “They said, yes,
back in 2011, the Ninja Burglar
burglarized their [Staten Island]
house.”
The neighbor told Emanuel
they believed Robert Costanzo
— the so-called Ninja Burglar
who terrorized Staten Island
Fatal bomb blast at Calif. bldg.
An explosion at a California
medical building that left one person dead and three others injured
Tuesday was the result of “an intentional detonation,” according to
the FBI.
Federal sources told NBC4 in
Los Angeles that an explosive device was delivered to the building
in Aliso Viejo, some 50 miles
southeast of LA, sometime during
the day, although it’s unclear exactly when.
The bomb, which was reportedly addressed to a specific person, went off at around 1 p.m.
Authorities said there didn’t appear to be any threats made be-
fore the blast, and there were no
indications of terrorism.
The explosion ripped through
the first floor of the two-story
building, blowing out walls and
windows — and sending preschool kids in a neighboring daycare facility scattering.
Chris Perez
with more than 100 jobs —
ripped their safe out of the wall,
triggering an alarm.
He likely carried the 80- to
100-pound safe as far as he
could before hurling it over a
fence and onto Emanuel’s property about 75 yards away, the
couple said.
“He probably thought he’d
come back for it but got arrested,” Emanuel surmised.
Cops confirmed a robbery did
occur at the home the day after
Christmas 2011.
A law-enforcement source
said the break-in was investigated as part of the string of
Ninja burglaries, which targeted
affluent neighborhoods on
Staten Island.
In 2016, Costanzo copped to
three counts of burglary and
was sentenced to 22 years behind bars. He admitted to more
100 burglaries that netted him
more than $4 million.
The lawyer who represented
him at the time didn’t immediately return a message.
No one answered the door at
the neighbor’s home — and a
woman who answered the
phone would say only “yes,” she
was happy to have it back.

THE VANDAL
THE
VANDAL WHO
WHO
J
By MICHAEL KAPLAN
A
N 11th-grade dropout, Basquiat liked to brag about having flunked art classes, instead picking up his aesthetic organically. He was inspired by
Robert Rauschenberg and Cy
Twombly, black athletes and bebop musicians, as well as snippets
from the book “Gray’s Anatomy.”
At age 7, he was run over by a car
and hospitalized. Basquiat wound
up losing his spleen. His mother
(who would later be institutionalized before passing away in 2008,
at age 74) brought a copy of the
anatomy book to his sickbed.
In the late ’70s, denizens of the
New York art world knew about
Basquiat before they knew him.
He made a name for himself as a
mystery graffiti artist, spraypainting, along with a friend,
“SAMO” with the copyright symbol and free-form messages upon
Soho buildings. “Like an ignorant
Easter suit,” read a short one.
At a thrown-together 1979
downtown graffiti-art show
called Canal Zone, Basquiat
showed up as an unknown and
asked if he could spray-paint
something on the wall. Given the
green light, he revealed himself
to be one of the SAMO guys and
hysteria ensued. He became an
instant sensation.
Essentially homeless upon arrival in Manhattan — he ran away
from the strict rules of his nowdeceased CPA father — Basquiat
circulated through the East Village, staying with a variety of
women and leaving behind works
of art the way other boho boyfriends might trail old socks.
Alexis Adler, now an embryologist who shared an East Village
apartment with Basquiat, lucked
out when the artist made his mark
on a bathroom door and an expanse of bedroom wall.
“Conservators came and cut
them out in 2015,” she said. “I live
on the top floor of a tenement and

EAN-Michel
Basquiat
reigned as the quintessential 1980s art star. Topped
with a tangle of dreadlocks
and draped in Commes de Garçon finery, he attracted parasitic
hangers-on, beguiled groupies
and pie-eyed collectors. Working
to the sounds of cool jazz and industrial noise, the Brooklyn native produced wild-style abstract
paintings. His work mesmerized
the likes of Mick Jagger, Andy
Warhol and Deborah Harry —
who, Basquiat’s former girlfriend
Suzanne Mallouk told The Post,
was the “first person he sold a
painting to that he was not sleeping with.” It went for $200.
Drugs tragically did in Basquiat,
in 1988, just months shy of his
28th birthday. But he and his art
have never been hotter than they
are now. “People love the rawness,” New York-based art dealer
Helly Nahmad said. “They are
drawn to his story of being a
struggling artist who later overdosed on drugs. He did not produce a lot but [the work] speaks
to a lot of different people.”
Last year, Basquiat’s 1982 painting of an enraged-looking skull,
called “Untitled,” sold at Sotheby’s
for $110 million after a high-flying
bidding war between Japanese
fashion tycoon Yusaku Maezawa
and a Las Vegas casino owner. The
price paid by Maezawa set a contemporary-art sales record.
On May 16 and 17, two more of
Basquiat’s paintings will hit the
auction blocks. Expectations are
running high for the pieces — the
1983 word-riddled “Flesh and
Spirit” at Sotheby’s and 1984’s African-inspired “Flexible” at Phillips — with estimates planted at
$30 million and more than
$20 million, respectively. Both
have collectors salivating.
“ ‘Flexible’ is one of the greatest
paintings I’ve ever seen in my
life,” said Alberto Mugrabi, a Manhattan-based art dealer and a major collector of Basquiat — whose
wrist is tattooed with Basquiat’s
signature crown. “It is sublime. I
think it will go for $50 or $60 million. If it goes for $150 [million] it
is still worth it. God, I would do
anything to have this painting.”
Adding to the Basquiat froth —
rising for at least a decade, during
which time prices have gone up
tenfold — is the recent release of
“Boom for Real,” a documentary
on the artist’s early years in Manhattan. The film’s director, Sara
Driver, knew him during that
seminal era. “He was charismatic
and always around,” said Driver.
“I recall him being girl-crazy and
that girls loved him” — including
a prefamous Madonna, who fell
hard for the artist.
“I remember him drawing and
painting everywhere,” Driver said.
“Jean was a very driven person.
He wanted to get his signal out.”
As for what feels like a Basquiat
moment, she said, “His work is as
relevant now as it ever was. The
things he addressed then” — in
terms of racial tension, crooked
insiders and social upheaval —
“we are addressing now.”
was always nervous [about a leak]
damaging the wall.”
She added, “They each sold for
$500,000 at Christie’s.”
B
asquiat’s big break came in
1981, when he was invited to
participate in an art show at
PS 1 in Long Island City. Called
“New York New Wave” and organized by artist Diego Cortez, it attracted the attention of Swiss art
dealer Bruno Bischofberger. He
bought 15 paintings from the
show and began representing
Basquiat overseas. Soho dealer
Annina Nosei took him on in
New York City.
In the BBC-made Basquiat documentary “Rage to Riches,” art
dealer Larry Gagosian recalled
stumbling across the artist’s work
at a Nosei group show. Gagosian’s
reaction: “My hair [was] standing
up.” On the spot, he purchased
three pieces for $9,000 and accepted the offer to meet Basquiat,
assuming that Jean-Michel would
be an old Frenchman.
“I saw this black guy sitting in
the office with paint-stained
jeans, smoking a big fat joint,” said
Gagosian, who would put on a
show with Basquiat in LA and set
him up in a Venice Beach homecum-studio where scavenged
boards of wood were used to create “Flexible.” “Right off the bat,
there was a rapport between us.”
Very quickly, Basquiat found
himself at the white-hot center of
the art world. With work being
shown in Europe, Asia and Africa, he often arrived early and
created his pieces on location —
after setting himself up with local
drug dealers. Mallouk, who
would soon split from Basquiat
and burn her former beau’s belongings outside of his loft window, commented on their change
in circumstances: “We went from
having no money to more money
than we knew what to do with.”

MASTER:
The family of
Jean-Michel
Basquiat (far

has a pair of
paintings on
sale: “Flesh
and Spirit”
(left) and
“Flexible”
(above right).
The artist,
whose life is
chronicled in
a new documentary
(right), has
broken contemporary-artsales records.
B
UT success came with a
price. “Jean had tremendous
pressure on him,” said Driver,
referring the to the demands of
creating art, selling art and moving in the right circles. “He realized he was becoming a commodity. Jean was a sensitive person and
I think this was painful for him.”
Along the way, Basquiat developed unquenchable desires for
heroin and cocaine — and he had
the money to support his blossoming habits. Basquiat once did
opium by inserting it in his rectum. Cocaine use became so excessive that he blew a hole in his
nose and turned to freebasing.
By the mid 1980s, Basquiat occupied a small building rented from
Warhol on Great Jones Street near
the Bowery. “It was a large place
with living quarters upstairs and
the studio downstairs,” recalled
artist friend Brett De Palma. “He
would retreat to the bedroom to do
drugs. It had a huge rear-projection
TV, a king-size bed and that was
basically it. Boy George would
come over, go upstairs with Jean
and everybody would stay below.
Jean did coke and then used heroin
to come down.”
Rumors swirled that he traded
art for drugs, circumventing the
galleries he contracted with.
But, De Palma added, it wasn’t
all a grim storm of rocks and
powders. “He threw lavish parties
catered by Mr. Chow. There’d be
big tins of caviar from Dean &
DeLuca. He would put piles of
cash on the table and tell people
to take money if they wanted it.
He used that as a test. I took $100
one time and paid him back. He
said I was the first to do so.”
Through it all, Basquiat kept creating. He did a series of pieces with
Warhol and watched his own art
get influenced by drugs. “The work
became more complex and more
sophisticated,” De Palma said.
“The drugs created disjunctive
thinking. People would be in Jean’s
house, immobilized; he’d be up,
painting. At a certain point,
though, he’d throw everybody out
and say he needed to work.”
By the time of his last show, in
1988, he came off as a junk-addled
wreck. “I saw him there,” Driver
recalled. “He was missing teeth
and his skin looked bad. He had
been one of the handsomest men
in New York. It was heartbreaking. We were worried. We felt like
he was going to die.”
On Aug. 12, 1988, after a trip to
Maui designed to get him off of
drugs, Basquiat overdosed on heroin in his Great Jones Street home.

Wrongfully served 16 yrs.
By GEORGETT ROBERTS
A man who served 16
years behind bars for
murder before his conviction was overturned cried
and held hands with a
Brooklyn judge Tuesday
after learning he won’t be
retried for the crime.
“I am an innocent man,
Your Honor, and I have always been an innocent

Judge ShawnDya Simpson

Simpson offered her
hands to Bunn from

former convict held them.
The judge also handed
Bunn some tissues.
“It’s a long time coming.
It’s an emotional journey

who was convicted in the
slaying of off-duty Rikers

Bunn was paroled in

Meghan Markle’s dad is having a change of heart.
Thomas Markle, 73, announced Tuesday that he was
going to try and walk his
daughter down the aisle, despite his staged-photo controversy — but was then forced to

apparently learning from doctors he needed heart surgery.
“They will go in and clear

Markle

The former

has been recovering
from a heart attack he suffered last week, which left him
with a “seriously damaged”
heart. Thomas was reportedly
back in the hospital on Tuesday
undergoing a series of tests.

President Trump
For Standing Up
For American Jobs
President Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
Dear President Trump,
With your new agreement to stop trade violations by the United Arab Emirates, you have shown
the world that your administration will not stand for unfair trade deals that hurt American jobs
and businesses. On behalf of the men and women of the U.S. airline industry, thank you for taking
decisive action.
For over a decade, the UAE and Qatar have provided billions of dollars in subsidies to their governmentowned airlines (Emirates, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways), violating Open Skies trade agreements
with the United States, and blocking fair competition with American businesses. By acting to enforce
our agreements and restore a level playing field, your administration has again shown that you stand
with American workers and will fight for our jobs and economy.
As with your successful agreement with Qatar earlier this year, this new agreement with the UAE
will save American jobs. More than 310 members of Congress, more than a dozen governors, and
hundreds of local elected officials and business leaders from both parties agree with you that the
U.S. must enforce its Open Skies trade deals. Now we look forward to working with you to hold the
UAE and Qatar to their word.
Thank you for your leadership and your commitment to the American people.
Sincerely,
The Partnership for Open & Fair Skies

Conservative: A Year Later, We Still Know Nothing
US must help Sadr stop an Iranian takeover
Special counsel Robert Mueller began his Trump-Russia investigation
(initiated in 2016 by the FBI) a year ago Thursday. Yet, notes Byron York
at the Washington Examiner, “we still don’t know what’s going on.” By
which he means whether there’s evidence the Trump campaign colluded
with Moscow or even whether the president obstructed justice. Indeed,
“Mueller is so secretive that his lawyers hesitate to reveal, even to federal
judges, what the investigation is about.” But for all the indictments he’s
brought, “no one has been charged or pleaded guilty to any crime that involved collusion or conspiracy.” The only certain thing in Mueller’s investigation “is that the sooner it is over, the better — for both sides.”

The failure of two recent wars with Israel is what led Hamas to launch a
series of human wave attacks, including terrorists with explosives, aimed
at overrunning the Gaza-Israel border, notes Tablet’s Liel Leibovitz. Yet
“the outcome of these attacks was clear: Hamas would lose.” On Monday,
though, “Hamas won anyway,” thanks to Western news media — which,
in exchange for “precious images” of dead Palestinians juxtaposed with
those of Donald Trump and his family, were “more than happy to erase
the facts” that these attacks have been going on for weeks and that Hamas
“is an evil, anti-Semitic, misogynist, homophobic, theocratic cult.” Fact is,
“news organizations are knowingly partnering with Hamas, and gladly
whitewashing the crimes of a ghoulish leadership, in return for pictures
that they want as much as Hamas does.”
Culture critic: Comedians Just Aren’t Funny Anymore
Iraq the vote: Supporters of Muqtada al-Sadr celebrate in Baghdad.
So he has many reasons to resist
Tehran, but as part of Sadr’s political maturing process, he’s also
learned that as long as Iran wants
and can control its neighbor’s
politics, he has
only a few tools to
confront it.
The president
of the Washington-based Future
Foundation,
Iraqi-American
Entifadh Qanbar, cites a twoyear-old incident to illustrate
that point: Sadr led tens of
thousands of his followers in an
anti-corruption sit-down at
Baghdad’s Tahrir Square, right
in front of the prime minister’s
office.
“Muqtada had his own tent
there, leading chants of ‘Iran
out,’ and calling Qassem Suleimani out,” Qanbar says, referring
to the Iranian general charged
with exporting the revolution.
“They could have just walked
into [Prime Minister Haider]
Abadi’s office and taken over,”
says Qanbar. But then Suleimani
threatened Sadr’s life, and he immediately folded his tent. The
next day Sadr was in Tehran,
where he was read the riot act.
So yes, Sadr will likely now
ally with Abadi, who has long
tried to juggle ties with America and Iran. With anti-Iran
sentiments growing among
Iraqis, as seen in the Saturday
vote, these two new allies will
— within limits — try to shake
off Suleimani and his Revolutionary Guard.
The Iranians insist on running
every aspect of Baghdad politics
like control freaks that can’t let
go, which intensified Iraqi Arabs’ resentment of them, and
neither Sadr nor Abadi or their
allies, despite their aspirations
for a new, unified and independent Iraq, have the power to resist Iran by themselves. Suleimani still commands some of
Iraq’s strongest Shiite militias,
and Iran pours money and resources into keeping Iraq divided and too weak to resist
Iran’s hegemony.
Which is where America
comes in.
Washington has attempted,
over and over again, to gain political friends in Iraq. And failed.
“Every time the Americans interfere, they mess up,” says Qanbar. Instead, he says, “the best
service Washington could provide to Iraq is to weaken Iran.”
The good news: America no
longer seeks to appease Tehran,
as it did in the runup to completing the nuclear deal. The question now is how long before this
American turn yields fruit and
starts hurting Tehran’s ability to
keep Iraqis (as well as Lebanese,
Yemenis, Syrians and Gazans, to
mention a few) under Iran’s
thumb.

Back when Alec Baldwin began impersonating Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” “everyone oohed and aahed over him,” recalls Jim
Treacher at PJ Media. But now that the novelty has
worn off, “even some of our friends on the left are
starting to notice” it doesn’t work anymore. Then
again, he says, “it doesn’t have to work. It just has to
make Trump and his supporters angry.” And that’s
the problem with comedy nowadays: It “used to be
about making people laugh. Now it’s about trolling
people you don’t like, and reminding the people you
do like that you still belong to the tribe.” Trump
hasn’t killed comedy, but “he’s driving all the humorists to mass suicide.” And the audience applauds,
Baldwin-as-Trump “because they’re hearing what they want to hear.”
Security writer: Trump Needs NoKo Human-Rights Deal
The Trump administration says Kim Jong-un “actually wants to modernize” North Korean society and Washington is prepared to offer US
“know-how, knowledge and entrepreneurs” to help “create a robust economy,” reports Bloomberg’s Eli Lake. That “really is new,” he says, and it’s
“worth calling Kim’s bluff and testing that commitment.” But to do so,
President Trump needs a human-rights agreement as well as a nuclear
one: “Real economic development requires a baseline of political freedom — the two go hand in hand.” There’s ample precedent: the 1975 Helsinki Accords with the then-Soviet Union. And though Kim’s family has a
history of breaking promises, “so did the Soviet Union.” If “a Helsinki
process worked for the dissidents behind the Iron Curtain, it can work for
the dissidents in the Hermit Kingdom.”
Education activist: Teachers Aren’t Victims
Larry Sand at City Journal takes issue with a recent op-ed in which
American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten defends
teacher walkouts “by sketching a familiar hero-villain scenario.” Because
“while teachers in some cases are underpaid,” Sand observes, the actual
data suggest they’re paid “much better than commonly acknowledged” —
a nationwide average for public-school teachers of $58,950, or $87,854 including benefits. Yet despite the fact that there are more teachers than
ever before, “students’ academic achievement has stagnated or fallen.”
One reason why: “Lavish teacher pensions are eating up money that
should be spent on students.” Meaning “teachers — including bad teachers — have a powerful incentive to stay on in their jobs, since they automatically earn more just by showing up each fall, regardless of how effective they are.”

Foreign desk: Dying for a Photo-Op in Gaza
AP
RAQIS need our help again.
This time, that help must be
focused on the source of Iraq’s
trouble: Iran.
On Saturday, Iraq conducted
its fourth parliamentary election
since Saddam Hussein’s overthrow. The clear victor was
Muqtada al-Sadr, leader of an influential Shiite clan.
Sadr has much American
blood on his hands. Considered
the “black sheep” of his revered
Sadr family, he led a ragtag militia that became one of the biggest thorns in the US military’s
side after the 2003 invasion.
But Sadr has become a wily
politician. No longer just a rabble-rouser, he’s widely seen as a
patriot on a mission: expel all
outsiders and leave Iraq to the
Iraqis.
That should be our goal, too.
Especially since Sadr’s top goal
these days is thwarting Iran’s attempt at consolidating Iraq’s
status as a major hub of the Tehran-controlled Shiite Crescent
— a bridge to Lebanon and
Syria.
Sadr has explicitly denounced
Syrian butcher Bashar al-Assad, a
top Iran ally. He’s
railed against Shiite Iraqi fighters
BENNY
Iran sends to
AVNI
Syria, and criticized Iran-backed
militias in Iraq (some of which,
regrettably, America allied with
in the fight against ISIS).
Sadr has also developed a
closer relationship with the
Saudi monarchy, which sees Iran
as its main regional rival and
America as its key ally.
Note: While the Sadrists are
proud of their esteemed religious scholars, they break with
Iran’s Shia establishment over
mosque/state separation; Sadr’s
current election partners are
secular Iraqis, Communists and
others Iran sees as heretics.
Sadr’s much-revered father,
Mohammad, was an opponent of
Saddam but never had political
aspirations himself. Nor is
Muqtada running for political office, but after Saturday’s victory
of the coalition he led, he’s
widely seen as Iraq’s new kingmaker.
And Iraqis who know him say
that despite the popular belief
that Saddam was responsible for
the 1999 assassination of his father, Muqtada believes Iran did it.

NYC’s Attack on Tenants
N
ew York’s “progressive” pols are again
going to bat for deep-pocketed specialinterest groups against little guys trying to make a few extra bucks —
Airbnb hosts.
A City Council bill would force the apartment-sharing service to turn over the names
and addresses of all its New York City hosts
so officials can crack down on units with
“violations” — even when those breaches
have nothing to do with their Airbnb listing.
A similar law in San Francisco killed half
the listings there, as thousands of would-be
hosts quit rather than try to fight City Hall.
Critics claim they want to keep hosts from
“warehousing” units — using them yearround as illegal hotels rather than for permanent residences. But they offer zero credible evidence this is a big problem.
City Comptroller Scott Stringer, for example, just dropped a “study” claiming Airbnb
units have caused average rent hikes of as
much as $100 (over seven years!) in some
neighborhoods. Yet it made elementary errors, such as counting every listing, even in-
W
‘When Times Are Tough’
hen Gov. Cuomo announced he was
heading to Israel within days to show
solidarity with a nation under attack
from Iranian missiles, he said: “I believe you
show friendship when times are tough.”
Oops: It looks like times just got a little too
tough for the governor’s taste.
Just hours before his scheduled departure
Tuesday, Cuomo’s office disclosed he’d
postponed his trip until “the active on-theground conflict abates.”
That referred to Monday’s mass rioting at
the Israel-Gaza border, which saw 61 Palestinians killed and 1,200 wounded, prompting
widespread condemnation of Israel from
the usual media and diplomatic sources.
His office said the gov would “monitor the
situation” and delay the trip for several
weeks until he “can visit both the Golan
Heights area and the Gaza border.”
Again, Cuomo had pointed to the need for
T
active ones and those rented for just a few
nights a year, as a home “kept off the market” — wildly skewing the results.
The company notes that its average unit is
rented out just 62 nights a year. Clearly, most
hosts are everyday New Yorkers, typically
tenants looking to help pay their bills.
Why do local pols really want to crack
down? To please hotel-industry fatcats and
unions that detest Airbnb competition —
and donate heavily to the pols’ campaigns.
Politico reports that the Hotel Trades Council forked over nearly $100,000 during the
2017 election cycle.
A punitive (and otherwise pointless) state
law already requires hosts to stay home
when renting for less than 30 days. And the
city has been trying to intimidate hosts,
Airbnb reports: “All across the city, we have
heard from dozens of families . . . who have
faced harassment.”
If New York’s politicians really cared
about the little guy, they’d help Airbnb expand. And tell Big Hotel to deal with competition, like everyone else.
“showing up at a time of trouble as a sign of
solidarity.” Plus, he had no problem heading
over in 2014 (another election year) amid
even more deadly fighting with Hamas.
It seems a governor who has always expressed unhesitating support for Israel now
prefers to get some distance from the bloody
pictures flashed on the world’s TV screens.
Cuomo, after all, is facing a challenge this
year from his left flank — and eyeing a 2020
White House run in a Democratic Party that
is just galloping away from the Jewish state.
Israel is being absurdly pilloried for defending its border against ruthless, premeditated attacks by terrorists cynically sacrificing their own people as human shields.
That’s a point Cuomo could have made
this week, on-scene in Israel — proving his
own point that “true friendship is shown not
in the easy times, but in the hard times.”
Instead, he’s proving it in the negative.
Tom Wolfe, 1930-2018
om Wolfe, who died on Monday at 88,
could write on patent law and make you
stay up late to read the piece a second time.
His clear eye — equal parts merciless and
sympathetic — drove a pen that not only
knew no bounds, but smashed any that
dared present themselves.
When Yale’s American Studies dons rejected his doctoral thesis, he wrote a pal:
“These stupid f***s have turned down
namely my dissertation . . . They called my
brilliant manuscript ‘journalistic’ and ‘reactionary,’ which means I must go through with
a blue pencil and strike out all the laughs and
anti-Red passages and slip in a little liberal
merde, so to speak, just to sweeten it.”
He retyped it, pocketed the degree and
moved on to remake journalism with gems
from “There Goes (Varoom! Varoom!) That
Kandy Kolored (Thphhhhhh!) TangerineFlake Streamline Baby” through “Radical
Chic and Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers”
and on — for decades.
He was more genteel in writing for the
public, but more devastating — or, when his
subjects merited it (“The Right Stuff”),
more in awe. His reporting was always honest and insightful, his prose a joyous marvel.
And when he ventured into fiction, starting with “The Bonfire of the Vanities,” he
still reported — painting page upon page of
untold truths of ’80s New York, from Wall
Street to Park Avenue to The Bronx.
Throughout, he relentlessly thumbed the
hypersensitive brethren of those Yale censors in the eye, and did it with style. (Damn,
could he wear a suit.)
This town has lost another of its greats. RIP.

He’s in a New York state of mind: Tom Wolfe (left-right), state Sen. Roy Goodman and then-Gov. George Pataki at a 1999 state Republican Party dinner.
In his remarks, Giuliani called
Wolfe “the Dickens of our modern
age” and noted how he “described
the social forces that affect us . . .
in ways that explain what the impetus for reform is and the things
that maybe we’re doing wrong
that we can correct.”
From “The Electric Kool-Aid
Acid Test” (1968), his “nonfiction
novel” about the counterculture,
to “The Right Stuff,” his 1979
treatment of the first American
astronauts, to his later works: the
Atlanta-set novel “A Man in Full”
(1998) and “Back to Blood” (2012),
an exploration of 21st century Miami, Wolfe described our social
situation with unmatched flair
and insight.

currently operate in New York without
rules that would protect consumers
from predatory lending. Thankfully,
the state Senate is looking to change that.
Inspired by a series of exposés in The
Post and The New York Times, the Senate
Consumer Protection Committee on
Wednesday is holding a public hearing to
scrutinize the lawsuit-lending industry’s
more grotesque tactics.
Lawsuit funders sniff out tragedy to cash
in on misfortune. They spend heavily on
advertising that targets the disadvantaged
and desperate.
Companies offer money up front for
pending lawsuits and claims. Funders
promise “cash now,” with some offering
no-credit-check approval in just one day.
But the truth is the industry is rife with
unscrupulous actors looking to exploit the
legal system.
Buried in the contracts, consumers find
that interest is often compounded monthly,
with annual rates that exceed 100 percent.
People who sign these lending agreements
may ultimately win their lawsuit only to
take home a tiny fraction of their award —
a majority of the money ends up in the

Fortunately, state Sen. Rob Ortt (R-Lockport)
and
Assemblyman

Magnarelli (D-Syracuse) have introduced
a bill that would protect New Yorkers
from usurious interest rates by requiring
the industry to comply with existing lending laws. The bill also prohibits lawyers
from having arrangements to collect lucrative referral fees from lenders, which
encourage frivolous filings and prolong
litigation that should’ve been settled
sooner.
These reports should serve as a wake-up
call for Gov. Cuomo and Speaker Carl
Heastie, too. Lawmakers must work together and finally subject these abusive
contracts to the same consumer protections as all other lenders. This needs to
happen before more New Yorkers are exploited by these legal loan sharks and become victims — again.

T
OM Wolfe not only chronicled the social changes that
transformed America and his
adopted hometown of New
York in the second half of the 20th
century. In many ways, he helped
to shape them. While he’ll always
be remembered for his much-copied, but ultimately inimitable
prose style, he was also a man of
ideas.
His debut novel — published at
the tender age of 56 — “The Bonfire of the Vanities” captured the
inequities, division, danger and
decay of 1980s New York better
than anyone — and opened New
Yorkers’ eyes to the need for
change, much as another social
reformer, Jacob Riis, did a century
before.
Characteristically contrarian,
Wolfe once wrote that “at that
moment, the conventional wisdom among those second-hand
idea salesmen, the intellectuals,
was that ‘America’s large cities
have become ungovernable.’ ”
A student of history, Wolfe
didn’t buy it, and he began to
champion ideas like proactive
“Broken Windows” policing,
which he believed could improve
life for all New Yorkers.
Wolfe would become friends
with Bill Bratton and also Bratton’s No. 2 in his first stint as commissioner, the late great, John Timoney, whom Wolfe once described thus: “Even someone in
the grandstand, like me, could
read the lines incised in that face,
punctuated by a blunt nose, and
immediately make out the words
‘tough Irish cop.’ Timoney was the
platonic ideal-typical incarnation
of the breed. He was the real real
thing.”
After Rudy Giuliani was elected
mayor, he and Wolfe participated
in a Manhattan Institute forum in
which many policy topics — from
crime to education to welfare reform — were discussed. Years
later, the Manhattan Institute
presented Wolfe and Giuliani
with its Hamilton Award on the
same evening. It was an honor to
fete the author of “Bonfire,”
alongside the mayor who had
done so much to put out the
flames.
Wolfe was one of New York’s
last true literary stars. It always
caused a stir when he would arrive at a function in his trademark
white suit and matching custom
Cadillac, with his cane and fedora.
He was an icon, a literary lion, but
would always take time to encourage young writers.
“Keep scribbling,” he would advise them.
A son of the South, his love for
his adopted home of New York
was evident in much of his writing, including this passage from
“Bonfire”:
“He could see the island of Manhattan off to the left. The towers
were jammed together so tightly,
he could feel the mass and stupendous weight. Just think of the millions, from all over the globe, who
yearned to be on that island, in
those towers, in those narrow
streets! There it was, the Rome,
the Paris, the London of the twentieth century, the city of ambition,
the dense magnetic rock, the irresistible destination of all those
who insist on being where things
are happening.”
New York has always been a
magnet for those whose ambition
is to make a living — and make a
difference — through the printed
word. Tom Wolfe did both. He
will be missed.

the Manhattan Institute.

CBS TITLE FIGHT
It’s Moonves vs. Shari, Round One in Delaware
By RICHARD MORGAN
It’ll be up to a judge on
Wednesday.
That’s when Shari Redstone
will dispatch her high-priced
lawyers to a Delaware courtroom to try to keep CBS’ independent board members from
making a move that would result in her family losing control over the media giant.
Judge Andre G. Bouchard
will decide whether CBS’
bold move to try to wrest control of the company from the
Redstone’s National Amusements Inc. is legit — or just a
fanciful quest.
CBS is asking Bouchard to
restrain NAI from interfering in its bid to remain independent and not be forced to
merge with Viacom — which
is also controlled by the Redstones.
CBS insists it needs a temporary restraining order
against NAI to ensure Redstone doesn’t preempt Thursday’s special meeting of the
board — one aimed at cutting
NAI’s voting power over CBS
from 79 percent to 17 percent.
CBS claims the Les
Moonves-led company not
only has the right — but also a
fiduciary responsibility — to
thwart Redstone’s plans to reunite CBS and Viacom.
Shari has advocated of
bringing CBS and Viacom
back together since orchestrating the ouster of Viacom
Chief Executive Philippe
Dauman in August 2016.
Analysts contend her advo-

plan — as NAI foe Shari

broadcast boss

high-stakes fight.
cacy now has brought Redstone and Moonves to the
point of no return.
Steven Cahall of RBC Capital Markets called Moonvesled resistance to undoing the
deal that split CBS and Viacom apart in 2006 as “going
the nuclear option.” But if NAI
prevails, he said, “CBS man-
agement is unlikely to hang
around.” That alone would
cost Moonves plenty.
Moonves stands to collect
$150 million if he’s dismissed
before his contract expires in
June 2021 — a number that
rises to $187 million once additional payments are included,
according to a Bloomberg es-
timate. Moonves’ golden
paracute can balloon to $280
million if certain targets are
met, Bloomberg reported.
According to its suit, CBS
believes “it’s only a matter of
time before Ms. Redstone will
attempt to replace the independent directors at CBS who
do not agree with her posi-
tions, just as she and NAI did
at Viacom two years ago.”
The issue of timing became
critical after CBS’ special
committee voted unanimously on May 13 that the
merger under consideration
with Viacom was not in the
best interest of CBS shareholders.
The committee’s veto
moved Bernstein analyst
Todd Juenger to raise his CBS
target price to $65 — up from
$53 — on grounds the company stands to benefit from an
M&A premium and from not
being dragged down by Viacom.
Juenger also cheered CBS’
defiance, calling it “one of
those occasional instances
that reinforce our hopes/beliefs that boards of public
companies can really stand
up for their shareholders’
interests.”
Even if Redstone gets
her way, the analyst argued
in a Tuesday update, she won’t
be able to deny that five independent board members on
CBS’ special committee unanimously voted against the
merger.
NAI claims it has “absolutely no intention of replacing the CBS board or forcing a
deal that was not supported
by both companies.”
If CBS wins on Wednesday,
it plans to distribute one Class
A voting share for each Class
A and Class B share — thus diluting the Redstone family’s
control to 17 percent.

New CEO checks in at plus-size Avenue
By LISA FICKENSCHER
Another retail chief executive has
been shown the door.
Avenue, the plus-size retailer, is betting on a new leader to lift its sinking
sales.
The Rochelle Park, NJ, retail chain
on Tuesday named board member
Mark Walsh as its new CEO — replacing Liz Williams, the company an-
nounced on Tuesday.
Williams had been in the hot seat for
the past six years as the chain struggled
to post consistently strong results. She
is “taking time off after which she may
evaluate other opportunities,” the company said in a statement.
A recent study showed that CEO
turnover was happening at the fastest
clip in four years.
Just last week, Michael Mauler unex-
pectedly stepped down from his CEO
post at GameStop.
Walsh began advising Avenue in 2017
when a new management team was installed, including Chief Merchandising
Officer Nancy Viall and Chief Marketing Officer Stephen Silbaugh.
“Having worked closely with Mark
over the years, we have first-hand
knowledge of his ability to collaboratively lead organizations and grow
businesses,” Gregory Segall, chief executive of Versa Capital, the private equity firm that owns the retailer, said in a
statement.
Philadelphia-based Versa bought Avenue out of bankruptcy in 2012, installing Williams as the chief executive.
Walsh had been CEO of Bob’s Stores
— another Versa Capital-owned chain
— and of Eastern Mountain Sports.

Apple’s Cook warned Trump on trade
By NICOLAS VEGA
If the US avoids a trade war
with China — Apple chief
Tim Cook may deserve some
credit.
Cook, in a White House
meeting with President
Trump last month, told the
president that a trade war
with China is a bad idea, according to a Tuesday report.
In a candid conversation
with Trump in the Oval Office, Cook criticized the administration’s tariffs on products imported from China,
according to the report.
“I felt that tariffs were not
the right approach there,”
Cook told Bloomberg about
his private conversations
with Trump.
“And I showed him some
more analytical kinds of
things to demonstrate why.”
It was the first time the topics of the Cook-Trump meeting were disclosed.
In recent days, Trump has
backed off his tough rhetoric

on China — from threatening to impose tariffs on $150
billion worth of Chinese
goods and having his Commerce Department impose
stiff sanctions on smartphone maker ZTE to reaching out to help ZTE stay in
business.
Cook, whose company saw
China sales reach $18 billion
in the holiday quarter, also
doubled down on Apple’s
commitment to pump $350
billion into the US economy
over the next five years in the
form of tax payments, hiring
and capital expenditures.
“We’re also going to buy
some of our stock because
we view our stock as a good
value,” Cook told Bloomberg.
“It’s good for the economy
as well, because if people sell
stock they pay taxes on their
gains,” he said.

ABC-TV gushes
‘Roseanne’ love
By ALEXANDRA STEIGRAD
What’s old is new again —
well at least if you’re an ABCTV programming executive.
On Tuesday, ABC touted
the success of reboots of
“Roseanne” and “American
Idol” — to go with the rest
of its programming slate.
“Roseanne,” a late-1980s
hit about a working-class
family, has averaged more
than 19 million viewers in
its rebooted form.
“The last time we had the
No. 1 show was 24 years ago,”
said Ben Sherwood, president
of Disney/ABC Television
Group at the company’s Upfront presentation at Lincoln
Center in New York. “If anyone came to play a drinking
game for how many times we
mention ‘Roseanne,’ you’re
welcome.”
The network also plans to
air three hour-long dramas
created or produced by
Shonda Rhimes.
Rhimes, the force behind
“Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal,” is ending her 15-year career at ABC Studios and
picking up to go with Netflix.
But her legacy will live on
at ABC, which will continue
with “Grey’s Anatomy,”
“Station 19” (a “Grey’s”
spinoff), and “How to Get
Away with Murder.”
ABC said it will launch
three new comedies and
five new dramas, including

Gambling frenzy pumps up Sports Illustrated
By KEITH J. KELLY
PORTS media outlets are already gearing up to reap a big
S
boon in advertising and readers fol-
lowing the US Supreme Court decision to drop the ban on sports gambling. The largely illegal $170-billion-a-year industry will likely draw
additional government scrutiny as
states decide how to open the door.
Houlihan Lokey, the company
that has been shopping the Sports
Illustrated title for Meredith, had
been telling prospective suitors for
weeks that it could see a huge upside once the gambling ban lifted.
Sources close to the situation tell
Media Ink that there were more
than 50 parties that submitted a bid
for Sports Illustrated by the May 11
deadline — a mere three days before the landmark Supreme Court
case Christie vs. NCAA.
The SI suitors range from billionaires to media companies and a
handful of private equity players —
with bids said to be in the $200 million range, according to a source
close to the situation.
SI insiders said the publication
anticipated the lifting of the ban
several months ago, when it
launched a weekly betting show
called “The Line” on SI TV hosted
by Todd Fuhrman.
ESPN, which despite cord-cutting
still bills itself as the worldwide
leader in sports, was taking a cautious approach. “It is a bit early, but
we are actively monitoring it,” a
spokeswoman said.
Most realize that the lifting of the
ban is also likely to draw government regulators similar to the Advertising Standards Authority in
Britain, which has allowed sports
gambling advertising across all media since 2007 but closely monitors
them.
Back in 2006, The Sporting News,
at the time owned by Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen’s Vulcan Capital, was fined $7.2 million by the
Justice Department for running ads
for offshore gambling, which ran
afoul of federal laws. Esquire magazine also had to drop offshore gam-
bling ads from Bodog in 2005.
Fantasy sports Web sites DraftKings and FanDuel drew the ire of
New York regulators before getting
an all clear from Gov. Cuomo’s office, which agreed they were a
game of skill — not gambling.
Peter Chernin’s group has also
been gearing up for months. In September, it lured former ESPN executive Chad Millman — editorial
director of ESPN.com and ESPN:
The Magazine — to head up its Action Network, which is a combination of three acquired companies all
prepared to benefit from sports betting. They include Mark Cubanbacked FantasyLabs, Sports Insights
and SportsAction.
The Action Network sells access
to sports data and analytics on
video, podcasts and articles —
aimed at people who play fantasy
sports or gamble on sports.
The granddaddy of publications,
The Sporting News, was sold by
the Newhouse family’s Advance
Publications to Britain’s Premier
Group 10 years ago. Premier CEO
Ross MacEacharn expects to realize gains in the US — but with
lots of government oversight.
“For betting operators and rights
holders, it presents a unique opportunity to build an efficient,
properly regulated betting market
from the ground up and design a
model for what 21st-century betting should be,” he said.
But there are still plenty of critics who think widespread sports
betting will open the door to great
problems for society.
“For college students and teens,
sports gambling in real time on
smartphones and computers is as
addictive as crack cocaine,” according to John W. Kindt, a professor emeritus of business administration at the University of Illinois and a frequent critic of sports
gambling.

Wet spring rains on
Home Depot parade
By LISA FICKENSCHER
Gardeners had no use for Home Depot
in the last quarter.
“This was the coldest, snowy, wettest
March and April in 25 years,” said Chuck
Grom, an analyst at Gordon Haskett.
The brutal spring weather wreaked
havoc on the home-improvement chain,
which reported weaker sales in the most
recent quarter as fewer people bulked up
on gardening supplies, the company said.
“This is clearly a garden story for us,”
Chief Executive Craig Menear said on an
earnings call on Tuesday.
The chain has been the darling of the retail industry, benefitting from strong consumer spending, posting robust sales increases for nearly a decade. But the start to
the new year was an unexpected stumble.
Customer transactions were down 1.3
percent, the first such decline in the first
quarter since 2011, while the average
transaction rose 5.8 percent, the largest
increase since 2004, largely due to price
increases.
Sales at the 2,285-store chain missed
Wall Street’s expectations, rising 4.2 percent, to $24.95 billion, while same-store
sales rose 3.9 percent.
“It’s too early to call a down trend in the
home-improvement sector, but we are
closer to the end of the housing market
recovery than the beginning,” Loop Capital Markets analyst Laura Champine said.
Home Depot’s stores in the north were
hit the hardest, Menear said, adding that
sales in the rest of the country had been
trending toward high-single-digit growth.
In the first couple of weeks of May, he
added, comparable sales across the chain
increased by at least 10 percent.
Shares fell 1.6 percent, to $187.98.

Bill Ackman is finally seeing green this spring.
The hedge-fund manager
behind Pershing Square
said Tuesday that all of his
funds are in “slightly positive territory.”
“I guess I would say I’m
pleased to report that we’ve
had good progress since our

The good news comes after three consecutive years
of losses and redemptions
for the now $7.8 billion
hedge fund.
Recent gains in major
holdings such as Chipotle
Mexican Grill and Automatic Data Processing have
helped boost the fund’s performance. Chipotle is up 45
percent year-to-date, and
ADP has risen 10 percent so
far this year.
Ackman teased another

Hedgie David Tepper has
sealed a deal to buy the
NFL’s Carolina Panthers for
roughly $2.2 billion as regulatory filings show stakes in
gaming stocks, The Post has
learned.
The price, up from his previous $2.1 billion offer —
while still the highest price
ever paid for an NFL franchise
— is still considered a bargain.
Originally, the Panthers’
owners were seeking a “minimum” $2.5 billion price tag,
a source close to the situation said.
“He rose his bid to a number that was a little less comfortable” for him in order to
seal the deal, the source said.
Jerry Richardson is being
forced to sell the team, amid
an NFL probe into allegations of front office sexual
harassment.
Tepper also appears to be
doubling down on sports as
his fund Appaloosa Management raised its stakes in gambling stocks Caesars Entertainment — the nation’s biggest casino operator — and
MGM Resorts International,
according to regulatory filings on Tuesday.
Appaloosa also reported a
new $43 million position in
the $4 billion market-cap
Boyd Gaming as of March 31.
It is possible that the fund’s
position in those companies
has shifted in recent weeks.
It was not clear if the US
Supreme Court’s Monday re-
peal of the law banning
sports betting was what enticed Tepper to raise his bid.
The sale price is considered a bargain because it is
the first sale of an NFL, MLB,
NBA or NHL team over the
last 12 deals — dating back to
2013 — that was for less than
Forbes’ valuation for that
particular team.
Last September, the magazine valued the Panthers at
$2.3 billion.
This year, the Brooklyn
Nets sold for $2.35 billion —
more than the $1.8 billion
Forbes valuation.
There was concern in the
Panthers sale about how the
declining number of kids
playing football would affect
the audience for the professional game, a source close to
the auction said.
Another factor in tamping
down the sales price is the
NFL rule that caps debt on
teams at $350 million.
In the Panthers deal, it
means that the buyer would
have to come up with
roughly $2 billion in cash.
Tepper, worth $11 billion, is
paying all cash for the team.
Declining TV ratings did not
play a major role in the Panthers’
bidding, the source said.
NFL league policy has
barred team owners from
owning casinos. Several
owners did own stakes in
fantasy sports site DraftKings.
The NFL declined comment on its present policy.
Tepper declined comment.

Appaloosa less Apple
Billionaire hedge fund manager David Tepper no longer
wants a bite of Apple.
Tepper’s Appaloosa Management exited its position in the
tech giant some time in the first quarter, according to regulatory filings released Tuesday. The fund’s stake in Apple was
roughly $770 million, using March 30 prices.

SOME SALE: Gotham
ghosts of marine history
figure in to the $140 million
deal for this downtown landmark.
Erik Thomas/NY Post
UMBER One Broadway,
a landmarked office
N
building at the tip of lower
Manhattan, is being sold to
Midtown Equities for $140
million.
The 218,000-square-foot
building sits at the foot of
Broadway, and is bordered
on three sides by Greenwich
Street, Battery Place and
Broadway.
With 12 stories overlooking Battery Park, Bowling
Green and the landmarked
Alexander Hamilton US
Custom House, One Broadway has unfettered views of
the harbor and the Statue of
Liberty.
Midtown Equities, founded
by Chairman Joseph Cayre
but now run by sons
Michael Cayre and Jack
Cayre, didn’t return a request for comment.
Midtown redeveloped the
landmarked Empire Stores
on the Dumbo waterfront. It
also owns Soho House and
has invested in both the
World Trade Center and
Core Group Marketing.
Embellished with marine
motifs when it was developed for the International
Merchant Marine Corp. in
1920 and 1921, One Broadway is expected to be renovated into modern offices,
sources said.
But it could also be converted to luxury residential
use, and it has 30,000
square feet of additional air
rights.
The investment brokerage
team of Adam Spies,
Douglas Harmon, Josh
King and Marcella Fasulo
of Cushman & Wakefield
represented the sellers, a
Swiss trust that has owned
the building since 2000.
The largest tenant, Kenyon & Kenyon, an intellectual property law firm with
90,000 square feet, is merging into an uptown practice.
The building will soon be
vacant. The lease for the
Citibank at its base ends
next year.

Retail rents dropped like a

DULL ON
ARRIVAL
Legacy Records — one of the
year’s most anticipated
openings — is an overpriced,
overhyped snoozefest
L
EGACY Records is the
buzziest new restaurant
in town. It’s packed nightly and one of the toughest
tables in the city to book.
But it shouldn’t be. There
are zillions of better places that are struggling to
survive — and for which you don’t
have to trek to remote 517 W. 38th
St., some long blocks away from the
rising Hudson Yards complex.
But the restaurant has one big
traffic-driver: it’s run by Delicious
Hospitality Group, which also has
smaller downtown darlings Charlie
Bird and Pasquale Jones. However,
unlike at those high-energy establishments, Legacy’s expensively
crafted dining room is strangely
sexless and its menu mostly
mediocre.
You wouldn’t know it, though,
with the breathless media hype
surrounding the 2-month-old
Steve
Cuozzo
place, which is named for a famous
recording studio that once occupied
the site. On Instagram, Jessica Seinfeld proclaimed that it’s “my new
life.” Puffery for über-designer Ken
Fulk’s interiors started more than a
year ago, and Architectural Digest
recently went bananas over the restaurant’s “over-the-top elegance.”
But “overblown” is more like it.
While the circular front bar is a
stunner, the eating zone beyond
feels sterile and generic, with the
sort of green, gold and mahogany
walls and trim you might find in
any number of luxe hotels.
The menu isn’t any more creative.
I expected more than mainstream
choices such as branzino with salsa
verde and “Amalfi lemon.” If Middle
American conventiongoers from
the nearby Javits Center somehow
got through the door, dishes like
those might remind them of what
they can get back home.
Tagliatelle with duck ragu was
a congealed blob on my first visit.
Most everything else was wellturned-out but short of dazzling.
The branzino and black bass
were perfectly fine but depressingly familiar. Spring lamb loin
arrived underseasoned despite
a pool of smoked creme fraiche.
Juicy roast chicken was the juicy
roast chicken of 1 million good
bistros. Only hamachi crudo
with cilantro and citrus was
remarkable.
And prices! Although less than
they first look
because they
cover tipping,
they’re still
sky-high for
some dishes.
Warm, housemade, sproutedseed bread is
delicious — for $7.
The wood-roasted
octopus is a lone, 4-inchlong tentacle perched atop salsa
verde and green chickpeas for a
whopping $25.
It’s a pity because Legacy
Records has some better things
going for it. The friendly waiters
know their stuff. A strong, lengthy
wine list is full of reasonably
marked-up bottles such as a chocolatey 2008 Brunello di Montalcino
from Casanuova delle Cerbaie for
$165, and there’s a crack sommelier
team led by Arvid Rosengren to
guide you
through it.
But there
are only three
desserts
(including
dark chocolate
rum cake for a
mind-boggling
$19) plus a few
gelati. While abbreviated sweets are acceptable at a neighborhood spot,
they’re shocking at a restaurant
so theoretically ambitious.
Legacy Records exemplifies the
Manhattan high-end dining scene’s
stagnation. Megabucks design,
Instagrammable dishes, predictable
menus and a tsunami of hype have
muscled out creativity and passion.
The result is that even leading
owners and chefs who once knew
how to turn out hit after hit are
spinning the B side.

Looking to up your homecooking game? Turning simple foods into delicious, flavorful meals isn’t hard
— if you stock the right ingredients. Here, experts suggest the pantry (and refrigerator) staples they
always keep on hand to elevate everyday dishes.
DASHI
This stock, made from fish and kelp, is common
to Japanese cooking but works with all sorts
of cuisines. “It’s a revelation,” says Celine
Beitchman with the National Gourmet Institute.
She recommends buying it in powder form and
mixing it into sauces and marinades for a salty,
briny boost. You can also use it in liquid form to
poach delicate white fish.
Ajinomoto Hondashi, $3.75 at Sunrise Mart, 12 E. 41st St.
TAHINI
Rub this sesame-seed paste
onto meats before cooking
to add a nutty flavor, or stir
a dollop into salad dressing
to create a creamy texture
without any dairy. “Tahini
is healthy, shelf-stable and
versatile,” says Adeena
Sussman, author of “Tahini”
(Short Stack) and co-author,
along with Chrissy Teigen, of
“Cravings” (Clarkson Potter).
You can also use it for baking.
Replace peanut butter with
tahini in cookies, or swirl it
into brownies — tahini and
chocolate is a surprisingly
delicious combination.

RICE VINEGAR
Dress salads or quickly
pickle vegetables with this
mild vinegar, common to
Asian cuisine and less acidic
than many other varieties.
“I tend to use it [in simple
dishes] where I can taste it,
like a citrus salad with some
mint” or in a mignonette
[sauce] for oysters, for
a “subtle balance,” says
Celine Beitchman, director
of nutrition education and
instructor at the National
Gourmet Institute in the
Flatiron District. “It’s an
incredible flavor, earthy and
slightly acidic, fatty in the
way an almond is but
without the fat.”
Marukan organic rice vinegar,
$9.99 at Whole Foods
HARISSA
Chefs loves this
Middle Eastern chili
paste, which is just
mildly hot with a
complex, slightly
smoky profile. Use
it in stews, for
braising meats or
as a condiment on
everything from eggs
to potatoes. “For
someone who likes
spice, harissa could
replace ketchup,” says
Melissa O’Donnell,
head chef at Lower
East Side Lebanese
restaurant Lil’ Gem.
“It’s a great condiment
with deep flavor.”
Mina Harissa, $6.99 at
Whole Foods
SESAME OIL
This aromatic
oil isn’t ideal for
cooking, due to
its high smoke
point, but it’s
great for adding
a flavorful boost
just before
serving. Drizzle
it atop meats or
sauteed greens,
or use it instead
of olive oil when
making salad
dressing. “Just a
drop permeates
an entire dish,”
Sussman says.

LEMONS
Slice or dice these
salty, pickled
lemons — peels,
fruit and all — and
mix them into meat
stews or sprinkle
them across cooked
fish. “It’s such a
puckery, sunny
condiment that can
cut through the
richness of a dish,”
Sussman says.

These fish are great
for elevating basic
meals. Chop up a
few of them and
cook them in olive
oil or butter until
dissolved. Then,
use the mixture
to sautee veggies,
along with a splash
of lemon juice, or
stir it into red sauce
for pasta. “It doesn’t
add fishiness, [it]
just boosts the
flavor,” says Adam
Fleischman, founder
of Umami Burger.

Stir this tangy, sweet syrup,
commonly used in Middle

or yogurt. Or use it to balance
out savory dishes such as

onto a roasted bird two
minutes before it’s finished,
and it “seems like you’ve done

Melissa O’Donnell.

Slather this fermented
soybean paste onto rich
meats, such as duck

sauces for an umami
kick — that indescribably
savory fifth flavor. It’s

dressings. Just combine

Use a dash of fish
sauce in place of
salt when cooking
anything from
grilled vegetables to
barbecued chicken
wings. You can also
mix it into common
condiments such as
ketchup to give it
a punch of umami.

39, who runs the group of subtly tropical watering holes with buddy Elad
Zvi. “We’re not changing the foundation of what Shaker is about: We want
everyone to feel like they’re at home.”
With its straw-shaded light fixtu es
and brightly patterned wallpaper, the
wood-paneled space feels like an
Afro-Caribbean rec room. Funk, reggae and soul emanate from an oldschool, reel-to-reel audiotape and DJs
will spin on occasion. A huge outdoor
space wraps around the indoor bar,
o ering 360-degree views of Midtown,
along with plenty of out-of-the-way
nooks perfect for discreet canoodling.
On a recent night, the clientele was a
mix of creative types, tech guys and
Instagram babes — quite a di erent
crowd than the one that previously occupied the space.

says Zvi. “ The outdoor part of the bar
used to be a sun deck. The indoor part
was a game room.”
The fi st Broken Shaker launched in
2012, originally as a pop-up at the Freehand in Miami. It quickly gained a loyal following, thanks to its fresh juiceinfused cocktails and mellow atmosphere. It has since expanded to other
Freehand outposts — each of them
with its own distinct feel.

Hawkins, formerly of the acclaimed
Mother’s Ruin, has created a number
of drinks (most $16) inspired by the
Big Apple. They include the vodkaand gin-based Curry in a Hurry,
named for a nearby Indian spot of the
same name, and the Smillie, a beet cordial that honors Orta and Zvi’s friend,
Upland chef Justin Smillie. There’s
even a bagel-based drink.
The Poppyseed Bagel Fizz is made
by soaking poppy seed bagels from
downtown’s Black Seed in water, sugar
and yeast overnight and then mixing
the resulting liquid with liquor.
“We create a kind of bagel beer and
use it to make a gin fi z,” says Zvi. Expect more New York-specifi drinks in
the future, along with bar games such
as Jenga, chess and backgammon.
“We used to visit [NYC] every
month to be inspired,” says Orta.
“Now, being here and actually living
here, we’re findin new ways to be inspired all the time. It all ties together.”
A concise, international menu
features elevated bar food from
South American arepas to Middle
Eastern dips.
Locals who loved the Florida original are thrilled to have a Broken
Shaker of their own.
“I felt like I was traveling to Florida
without having to buy an airline ticket,” says Gary Toriello, 52, a web designer from Jersey City, who praised
the balanced cocktails and nice glassware. “I’ll defini ely be back.”

OU never forget
your first time — or
your first show, especially if you wind
up writing, choreographing or starring in one
later. Nine of this year’s
Tony Award nominees
told us about their early
forays into the theater,
both on Broadway and
off. Whether they were
puzzling over the fasttalking salesmen in David Mamet’s “Glengarry
Glen Ross” or dreaming
of the day they’d play
Mimi in “Rent,” it’s a
memory they’ll cherish
forever.
TAYLOR
LOUDERMAN
Best Actress in a
Musical, “Mean Girls”
“I moved around a lot
with my dad’s job and grew
up in a small town near St.
Louis, where the cattle population exceeds the human
[one]. I was probably 13
when I came to New York
for a theater camp, and the
director wanted to see
‘Glengarry Glen Ross.’ I
didn’t understand what was
going on — the plot was way
over my head, but it was
nice watching the actors. I
remember staring at everybody in the show, overwhelmed with the whole
Broadway experience.”

LAUREN AMBROSE
Best Actress in a Musical, “My Fair Lady”
“I saw Leslie Uggams in
‘Anything Goes’ when I
was about 7 or 6, maybe
even younger. My grandmother’s brother was an
actor, and he came up
from Florida and wanted
to take me to the show. I
got the [cast album] and
memorized it! Just seeing
all those bodies onstage,
creating this alternate
world — to this day, that’s
what I love most about
this work, the collaboration of a unique group of
people working together
. . . and seeing what comes
out of that.”

ITAMAR MOSES
Best Book of a Musical,
“The Band’s Visit”
“I was born in California
and didn’t spend a lot of
time in New York until college. Sometime over my
winter break in freshman
year, my parents came out
and we saw Terrence McNally’s ‘Master Class.’ It’s
literally in the form of a master class, with Zoe Caldwell
playing [opera star] Maria
Callas. A young actress
played one of Callas’ students, and she was phenomenal — Audra McDonald,
who was just out of school
herself. While honoring her
character, she managed to
go toe to toe with the alltime great Caldwell, and
that’s what stuck with me.”
LAURIE METCALF
Featured Actress in a Play,
“Three Tall Women”
“I was in high school in
Edwardsville, Ill., and we
went to St. Louis to see
‘Godspell.’ We all had terrible seats in the nosebleed
section, and the actors
probably weren’t much
older than we were, but
they looked like they were
having the time of their life.
It was energetic, colorful
and the music was — how
would I describe it? Innovative. Everything about it
made me lean forward. I
won’t go so far that I
thought, ‘Oh, I can do that,’
but I did think, ‘I’d love to do
that.’ I’ve [still] never done
a musical. But then, I can’t
sing. So there you go!”
Jamie
Parker
ARIANA DeBOSE
Featured Actress,
“Summer: The Donna
Summer Musical”
“My first Broadway show
was ‘Rent.’ I think I was 9
and sitting in the mezzanine
with my aunt and my mom
and uncle. I wanted to be the
girl in the blue shorts and the
leopard coat — I wanted to
be Mimi, who made me cry.
To this day, I never played
Mimi. But I thought, even
then, that I could make people feel something.”
JESSIE MUELLER
Best Actress in a
Musical, “Carousel”
“I think I was 4 when my
dad was playing John Adams in a production of
‘1776’ in Chicago. My parents had gone out for a
party, my cousin was babysitting, and my sister and
brother and I were acting it
out in our room. My parents
came home and found us.
We thought we’d get in trouble because we were up so
late, but they just laughed.”
JAMIE PARKER
Best Actor in a Play,
“Harry Potter and the
Cursed Child”
“The earliest show I can
remember is when I was 4
or 5, and my sister and dad
were in an amateur production of ‘The Music Man.’
All I can remember is my
sister coming on in her little
band uniform holding a
brass instrument, and all
these kids coming on to be
part of ‘76 Trombones.’ Be-
ing willing to accept what
you see onstage has never
been a problem for me —
we all know: It’s just a play.”
CHRISTOPHER
GATTELLI
Best Choreography, “My
Fair Lady” and “SpongeBob SquarePants”
“A friend of our family
brought me and my sister to
‘Dreamgirls.’ I was 14 or 15,
and it was mind-blowing!
The set was basically four
big towers that had lights on
them, and [director/choreographer] Michael Bennett
had the towers moved
around in ways that suggested spaces and passages
of time [and] you always
knew exactly where you
were. Everything I’d seen up
till then was traditional. To
see something that was so
spare, yet seemed so full and
dramatic and emotional,
was incredibly inspiring.”
ETHAN SLATER
Best Actor in a Musical,
“SpongeBob SquarePants”
“One of the first shows I
remember seeing was
‘Damn Yankees.’ I must
have been around 10 or 11
years old and was obsessed
with baseball. I remember
thinking [the actors] were
doing exactly what I wanted
to be doing, not only singing
and dancing, but playing
baseball, too! I think that was
the first semi-understanding
I had of what it really meant
to be an actor: You get to inhabit lives that you might
not otherwise live.”

Wonderword
How to play: All the words listed below appear in the puzzle ––
horizontally, vertically, diagonally, even backward. Find them
and Circle their letters only. Do not circle the word. The
leftover letters spell the Wonderword.
Cy the Cynic says that in today’s
legal system, an accused person is
innocent until proven guilty -- or
maybe guilty until proven wealthy. But
many bridge-table crimes are
undeniable.
At 3NT (not North-South’s best
contract), South took the king of
spades, unblocked his high diamonds
and tried to reach dummy by leading a
low club to the queen. When East won,
dummy was seriously dead. East then
returned a spade, and when West got
in with the ace of hearts, he cashed
three spades for down one.
Did South engage in any criminal
activity?
South misplayed. After he takes his
high diamonds, he must lead the jack
of clubs. If East wins to return a spade,
South wins and reaches dummy with
the queen of clubs to run the
diamonds. He wins six diamond tricks,
two spades and a club.
If instead East ducks the jack of
clubs, South is still safe. He leads the
king of hearts to West’s ace, wins the
spade return and has three diamonds,
two hearts, two spades and two clubs.
To solve a Su Doku,
you must put a number
from 1 to 9, in each
empty box.
Each number must
appear once in each
horizontal row, as well
as in each vertical
column and in each of
the 3-by-3 grids.
Impossible? Not once
you get the hang of it.

Nashville has tons to offer beyond honky-tonk tourism
By HANA R. ALBERTS
T
here’s never been a better
(or busier) time to visit
Music City: Nashville set a
record in 2017 with 17.5 million visitors. The Tennessee
capital makes a perfect getaway —
and not just for bachelorette parties.
Catch a Nashville Sounds
minor league game.
WHERE TO EAT
Nashville’s famed hot chicken
spots can get crowded, so try
secondary outposts of the popular
chainlets: veteran Prince’s and
newcomer Hattie B’s. Space isn’t
an issue at Martin’s Bar-B-Que
downtown, where two massive
floors contain a stage for live
music, ping-pong and shuffleboard
amid plants and
skylights. Perch
on repurposed
bus benches and
automobile seats while devouring
trays full of scrumptious meat
and sides that come out of the
kitchen at lightning speed.
For dessert, head over
NOW THROUGH JUNE 10TH
to Germantown, where Mignon
Francois started a small cupcake
food truck to support her five kids.
Now the Cupcake Collection has its
own storefront and is named among
the city’s best bakeries; specialty
flavors include sweet potato and
strawberry lemonade.
WHERE TO SHOP
In the 12 South
neighborhood, Reese
Witherspoon’s cute,
preppy brand Draper
James has a flagship
where smiling staffers
hand out miniature
sweet teas with striped
straws. Across the street,
an atmospheric old gas station now holds Imogene + Willie,
a jeans store with shabby chic flair
whose denim styles are all handmade locally.
Tucked away within the farmers’
market by the state capitol — and
open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
— is Batch, which curates and sells
authentic goods from the area.
From candles and jewelry to sta-
Local denim makers Imogene + Willie converted a former
gas station into a shabby chic boutique (above). Then fuel

tionery and hot sauce, it’s ideal for
non-cheesy gifts and souvenirs.
WHERE TO STAY
Newly renovated as of December,
Hutton Hotel — which hosted me
in March — has a Midtown location
that’s convenient to Nashville’s
most desirable neighborhoods
(Broadway, The Gulch, 12 South,
Music Row, etc.) and one block
from a Hattie B’s (from $239;
HuttonHotel.com). It has 250
rooms, music venue-slash-cocktail
lounge Analog and two exquisitely
decorated spaces for country music
legends to brainstorm, write and
record. Turn up the volume, y’all!
nypost.com
WHAT TO DO
For tried-and-true activities,
remember the two Ms: music and
murals. For the former, consider
old-school Robert’s Western World
on main drag Broadway, Whiskey
Row (a new multifloor arrival from
country star Dierks Bentley) and
late-night karaoke
in a shack called
Santa’s. As for
street art, the
colorful “I Believe
in Nashville” work is
one lure of the trendy
12 South district, while
Kelsey Montague’s 20-foottall wings in The Gulch area
draw lines for photo ops.
For an experience also beloved by
locals, head to a Nashville Sounds
game. The Oakland Athletics
Triple-A affiliate is a blast to watch
in a brand-new stadium that has
mini golf and shoots off fireworks
after every Friday home game.
Their season runs from April to
September and tickets start at $10.

An impressive 1st out winner, CAMORRA showed the way with
optionals next out and settled for 2nd after a pressured ¹/₄. Rebounds
quickly for Pletcher. Johnny V replaces Alvarado who gets back on MY
ROXY GIRL. She's been 2nd best last 3 tries, twice with stakes company.
Defeated allowance previously. 2 for 4, no worse than 2nd at this distance.
PUFFERY raced evenly for 3rd, about 2 lengths back of Camorra. And
BEAUTIFUL BUZZ was 3 lengths behind My Roxy Girl, last pair.

Winners of 1, none of which is proven at the distance. TRULY A
MOON SHOT is now 1 for 19 after placing 2nd last pair. May be better
equipped stretching to distance he has not performed well at. Irad rides
for Rudy. GO BIG OR GO HOME moves lower after turning up a non
threatening 6th last 2 two starts. TALE OF MIST Turf to dirt for Toscano. 1
for 21 but has hit the board 6 straight on dirt, twice at this level.

Johnny V should have her forwardly placed. Shop around; pays dimes not
dollars. TIZ A KITTEN Parx shipper moves dirt to turf for Lake. Missed by 2
lengths tackling allowance on the lawn in November. Chance; but 2 for 22
overall and 0 for 4 at distance. B THREE Winless thru 7 on the turf. Tired to
4th, still 4 lengths better than the troubled top pick, at 66-1.

odds-on-fave. Runs rematch off the J Englehart claim, extending to 6 ¹/₂

Harper hopes
for Harvey
revival
6-1
6-1
WASHINGTON — For
reasons both selfish and unselfish, Bryce Harper is a
fan of the trade that sent
Matt Harvey from the Mets
to the Reds.
The Nationals right fielder
has plenty of familiarity with
his former NL East foe: He
has only faced two pitchers
more often than he has taken
on Harvey in his career.
There may be some relief
that Harvey finally is out of
the division, but Harper also
sees a chance for a fresh start
for the Dark Knight.
“I’m happy for him, to be
able to go to a team [with] a
new environment for him,”
Harper said Tuesday at Nationals Park before taking on
the Yankees in a game that
was suspended after 5 ¹/₂ innings with the score tied at
3-3. “I hope he does well. He’s
one of the best young pitchers in the game.”
In 32 career at-bats against
Harvey, Harper has just five
hits (two of them home runs)
to go with seven strikeouts.
Of the 17 pitchers against
whom Harper has taken at
least 20 at-bats, only Clayton
Kershaw (.095) and Mike
Dunn (.143) have held him to
lower batting averages.
He didn’t have to think
long when asked what
stood out about his battles
with Harvey.
“He won most of them,”
Harper said. “You can look at
the numbers. He’s one of my
least favorite ones to face in
the league. I think a lot of
people know that. He’s a special talent, so [I’m] looking
forward to seeing what he
does in Cincinnati.”

Stitches: Let the games begin
What happens in Vegas doesn’t necessarily have to happen in Vegas any longer. This losing streak we are in just
got a lot worse after the Supreme Court lifted the ban on
sports betting. Soon you will be able to wager, legally, on
Stitches plays if you dare. Proceed with caution. First bet
I’m making is that the June 12 Trump/Jong-un powwow
never happens. ... With rules softening on gambling, and
recreational marijuana on the table can texting while driving, cockfighting and, heaven forbid, hugging, be far off?
While we’re at it let’s get our lethargic, unhurried Mayor to
raise the city speed limit to 26 mph.
Wheels fell off the Stitch-mobile this week. Zack Wheeler
reinflated his tires last week, allowing one run in six innings after a string of poor starts. Jays are at Citi Field for a
matinee. 20 units on the Mets.
-$
Wait for it. Wait for it. There it is. Took three hours for the
powers that be to call off the Phils/O’ last night. Twenty
fans who waited stopped buying beer and hot dogs. A deal
breaker. Holding at -594 gikofskys.

The U.S. Supreme Court struck
down the federal ban on sports
betting on Monday. But long before that Nets ownership had already started mulling how to cash
in when the inevitable happened
and legal wagering became a reality.
After New Jersey finally won a
six-year fight to get sports gambling legalized, the Garden State
should be the first to start seeing
revenue, with gaming research
firm Eilers & Krejcik conservatively estimating it could rake in
$250 million. Expect New York to
be right behind, which opens the
door for Brooklyn.
“The ruling opens up a lot of potential,” Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov said. “Once we see the decision enacted in terms of legislation, we will look at the best way to
maximize its benefits for our fans
and enhance value for the Nets and
our venues.”
The Nets could see direct benefits. Prokhorov recently sold 49
percent of the Nets to Joe Tsai —
The Post reported the valuation
was for $2.35 billion, a record for
any team in the world. And Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said the
value of teams doubled instantly
with the Supreme Court ruling.
That might be overly ambitious.
But teams and venues that do their
due diligence and get ahead of the
gambling wave stand to make
money. Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment, the Nets’ parents company, plan to do just that.
BSE operates not just Barclays
Center, but also Webster Hall in
Manhattan, the Paramount Theater in Brooklyn and NYCB LIVE,
home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Long Island.
“Today’s decision by the Supreme Court will have a tremendous impact on fan engagement
and creates value for the Nets and
our venues,” Brooklyn Sports &
Entertainment CEO Brett Yormark
said. “We are currently exploring
sports betting opportunities, and
once we fully understand the legislative direction, we can better determine how to activate in the
space.”
Experts in the industry think the
legalization of sports betting will
N.Y. Post photo
Hedman had the primary assist
on power-play goals by Steven
Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov and
was a key part of three big penalty
kills that gave Tampa Bay some
much-needed momentum. Determined to create the kind of shift he
thought could turn the East final
around after back-to-back home
losses, the Norris Trophy finalist
as the NHL’s top defenseman was
one of the most dominant players
on the ice and extended his point
streak to eight games
Criticized for his play in the first
two games against Washington,
Vasilevskiy was on top of his game
as the Capitals put 38 shots on net.
Vasilevskiy made seven saves on
the penalty kill alone to save a beleaguered unit that came in ranked
13th out of 16 playoff teams. — AP

Isiah fan
of Fizdale
decision
By MARC BERMAN
CHICAGO — Former Knicks
president Isiah Thomas had
lobbied for Mark Jackson to get
the team’s head-coaching job,
but still thinks general manager
Steve Mills did a good job landing David Fizdale.
“They made a great choice,’’
Thomas said after the draft lottery here in his hometown.
“I’ve known him through my
travels. I saw his work a lot in
Miami [as an assistant], followed his career path. I knew
him when he was an assistant
coach with [Mike] Woodson [in
Atlanta]. They made a good
choice — a really good choice.
He’s well-respected, understands the league, knows the
players. He’ll do a good job.’’

KNICKS NOTES
Thomas still works for the
Garden as the Liberty’s president. He campaigned for Jackson on WABC’s Sid Rosenberg
show last month, saying, “If he
has the opportunity to do that,
I’d think he’d be great at it and
would definitely want to do it.’’
Thomas, at the lottery for
NBA TV, declined comment on
Jackson’s candidacy that failed
to gain traction. Thomas won’t
be at Liberty media day
Wednesday but still is in charge
despite owner James Dolan’s attempt to sell the team and have
it play most of its games at the
Westchester County Center.
Perry said Frank Ntilikina
➤
already has put on some weight
since the end of the season. The
Post reported Ntilikina has
been in Paris working out at a
famed sports performance facility INSEP, and the Knicks
dispatched one of their trainers
to work with him.
“We had someone who already went over to see him,’’
Perry said, referring to trainer
Anthony Goenaga. “He’s doing well. He’s continuing to get
stronger and adding a little
weight. We expect him to be
back in New York in a week or
so. He’s committed. That’s the
one thing he told us in our exit
meeting. He’s gone through the
entire season as a rookie. Now
he’s got a little feel on what the
NBA is truly like. He’s a real reflective young man. He knows
what he really has to work on
and he’s not hearing it just from
us. He’s driven to come back a
better basketball player.”

By MARC BERMAN
CHICAGO — The presence of
general manager Scott Perry on
the dais and new coach David
Fizdale on board did nothing to
change the Knicks’ stagnant lottery luck Tuesday night.
The pingpong balls didn’t
dance the team’s way in a downtown Chicago hotel ballroom,
and any visions of Luka Doncic
or Deandre Ayton suiting up in
orange and blue can cease. The
Knicks will stick with the ninth
pick — as expected based on
their seed and the odds of moving up — in the NBA draft on
June 21.
“It held form,’’ Perry said. “Obviously the odds were against us
moving up. Wherever we ended
up, I’m confident we’re going to
find a good player. We just hired
a new coach as well. I’m still
very excited with the direction
we’re headed.”
Despite their stated vow of
needing a small forward, Knicks
brass has also said it could lean
toward taking the best player
available if his upside is significantly higher than any available
small forward.
Small forwards on their radar
at No. 9 are Mikal Bridges of
NCAA champion Villanova and
Michigan State’s Miles Bridges.
Pending how his workouts and
medical exams go, Missouri
small forward Michael Porter Jr.
could possibly drop as he
missed virtually all season with
a back injury.
In his first comments about
the pair of Bridges, Perry said,
“We’re going to dive into both of
those guys as we move forward.
Both are very good basketball
players who put themselves in
position to be in consideration
by a number of teams in the lottery. I can’t wait to meet both of
those young guys to really get a
feel for who they are and how
they may and may not fit.”
After a 29-53 season, the
Knicks owned a 6.1 percent
chance of moving into the top
three and an 81 percent chance
of staying where they were. The
Knicks haven’t moved up in the
lottery since their historic 1985
victory in the Patrick Ewing
sweepstakes in the inaugural
event.
Phoenix, which entered the
lottery with the highest odds,
landed the No. 1 pick, while the
Kings and Hawks moved up to
No. 2 and 3, respectively.
That lucky tanking trio has a
shot at the consensus top three
of Ayton, Duke power forward
Marvin Bagley III and the Slovenian small forward Doncic, after whom the Knicks lusted.
Asked if he could still net a
star at No. 9, Perry said, “You
never know. You look around
and Utah had good success
where they were [Donovan
Mitchell, at No. 13 last year]. A
lot of times in the draft everybody has to be careful. A lot of it
is fit, too. Some guys may get
drafted in a particular place
where it’s not a great fit initially
or it is a great fit.
“I think that’s the important
thing for us — finding the personality whose game is the closest fit to how we want to play
and what we want to be.”
The Knicks have a glut of
young point guards, but they
may have trouble passing on
Woodson, Clippers part ways
Ex-Knicks head coach
Mike Woodson is done in
Los Angeles, according to
multiple reports, where he
was a Clippers assistant
coach to Doc Rivers the past
three seasons.
Woodson interviewed for
the Knicks’ head-coaching
job and expressed interest to
The Post in joining David
Fizdale’s staff two weeks ago.
Woodson gave Fizdale his
first
assistant-coaching
bench job in Atlanta and
they were together from
2004-08.
The Post has reported
Fizdale is expected to bring
in Keith Smart, his Memphis
assistant whom he worked
with in Miami. Nick Van
Exel, also a Memphis coach,
is a strong candidate to come
aboard as well.
— Marc Berman
uber-talented Oklahoma point
Trae Young in the unlikely event
he falls to ninth. Alabama’s
speedy point guard Collin Sexton, however, should be there.
Can the Knicks take yet another point guard after nabbing
Frank Ntilikina last June at No.
8?
“It would only make sense if
you feel that guard is far and
away better than what you have
on the roster,’’ Perry said. “And
we haven’t been able to make
that determination yet.”
The draft combine begins here
Wednesday with player interviews. The lottery was switched
out of New York for the first
time to unite the two draft-oriented events.
Perry said he was delighted to
have hired a coach before the
combine. The GM said the bulk
of individual workouts may not
start until June 1.
“I think it’s extremely important to have the coach in house
because the more we spend time
with David and the more he gets
a chance to spend with these
guys we bring in to work out
and see what players may or
may not fit with how he’s going
to coach the team and his personality,’’ Perry said. “It was important to us to have the coach
in place in time for the draft
process at the combine. I’m sure
he’s going to have to catch up a
little and learn more about the
players. He hasn’t been coaching
for a year. We’ll bring him up to
speed.”

Fred Kerber’s NBA lottery mock draft
The offensive athletic freak center (20.1
ppg, 11.6 rpg) is the best guy in the draft.
Wingspan said to stretch from New York to
L.A. OK, that’s a lie. He barely reaches Vegas.
KINGS
Slovenia product would fit anywhere.
Great passer, shooter, terrific IQ.
Drawback: only 19 so can’t be sent
out for beer in rookie initiations.
HAWKS
Hawks could use the first of three firstrounders on ultra-productive (21.0 ppg,
11.1 reb) center. Terrific at the rim, can
step out with range. Defense a question.

Mavs can use a stretch four
replacement for when Dirk Nowitzki
retires in 2038. But they also need a
shot-blocking center and Bamba (3.7)
could fill that need.
Magic need a point guard and people
who can put the ball in the basket from
beyond arm’s length. Young, though
undersized, fits needs. He has quality
range and is an excellent passer.
A brute. The Bulls need a small forward
and center, and Carter can play inside.
A strong rebounder (9.1 rpg) and shot
blocker (2.1), he has good offensive
skills.
The temptation may be to go for a point guard
(Collin Sexton) but the Cavs also will look at
small forwards. Is LeBron back? Is he going?
Is he joining a cult? Porter was out with injury
most of the year but he’s skilled and versatile.
A solid two-way forward from the national
champs has everything the Knicks seek: he is
superb defensively, has room to grow,
rebounds, shoots 3s. Needs work
creating his own shot.
Mikal is gone so the Sixers, fresh off the
Celtics stomping them on the wings, need a
forward with a defensive bent. This Bridges
fills the need and can score (17.1 ppg).
The Hornets need athleticism. And point
guard help wouldn’t hurt. Sexton very well
could be off the board but if not, the Hornets
should grab his long arms and skills that excel
in transition. The shot needs work, though.
The Clippers need lots: point guard, center,
depth up-front. So other than the backcourt and
frontcourt, they’re stocked. Gilgeous-Alexander
is strong, versatile and gets to the rim.
Williams is a brute-type center, good on
pick-and-roll lobs. But he also is a very
good rim protector (2.6 blocks) and
guys usually don’t get turned down
because they defend.
He’ll need bulk up. but he is super
athletic and versatile. He is not a
dead-eye shooter from 3, but he makes
enough to be effective with size that
lets him handle either forward spot.
nypost.com
Jaren Jackson Jr.
Michigan State, PF
Good two-way guy, can shoot with
range. Long wingspan makes him
an exceptional rim protector (3.0
blocks). Of course, in modern NBA
everyone shoots 3s, still...

MR. MEDIOCRITY
Noah grinds out five
innings to pick up ‘W’
By HOWIE KUSSOY
Noah Syndergaard searched for a
win for more than five weeks. The
search for the “old Noah” still continues
The Mets co-ace had another
solid, but unspectacular outing
Tuesday night, picking up his first
victory in six outings, in a 12-2 win
over the Blue Jays at Citi Field.
Syndergaard (3-1) lasted five innings, and allowed two runs and five
hits, striking out seven and walking
two, while tying a season-high with
103 pitches (58 strikes).
“I just feel like I haven’t been living
up to my expectations for myself or
for other people,” Syndergaard said.
“Once it clicks, I’ll be really looking
forward to that.”
Following a 1-hour, 26-minute rain
delay, Syndergaard opened the game
by striking out the side, but the dominance soon segued into a string of extended battles against Toronto’s lineup.
Syndergaard allowed two runners to
reach base in the second, and then allowed two runs in the third, on a bases-loaded single by Yangervis Solarte,
which gave the Blue Jays a 2-1 lead.
“I felt great in the first inning,
some glimpses of the old Noah were
coming out,” Syndergaard said. “I
kind of surprised myself how nasty
[some of] those pitches were, but after that I had to grind it out.”
Facing the team which drafted him,
Syndergaard made his evening easier
By MIKE PUMA
Next time it counts.
Jason Vargas threw a simulated
game of roughly 80 pitches Tuesday,
after which the beleaguered Mets
lefty expressed optimism the worst
is behind him.
“It was really important to get the
reps in, especially with the extended
time off, and the ability to still go out
there and throw 90 to 100 pitches and
be able to get outs when we need to
get outs,” Vargas said.
In three appearances this season,
Vargas is 0-3 with a 13.86 ERA. His
normal turn in the rotation was
skipped this week so he could work
on situational pitching.
All signs point to Vargas pitching
next Monday or Tuesday against the
Marlins at Citi Field.
“It was definitely a productive day,”
by sparking the struggling offense
with an RBI double in the second inning. He then added a game-tying sacrifice fly in the fourth, beginning a
five-run frame. The RBIs were his first
of the season, and marked his first
multi-RBI game since Aug. 16, 2016.
Though the Mets jumped in front,
Syndergaard was in danger of failing
to qualify for the win. With his pitch
count rapidly climbing, the righthander gave up a double to Josh
Donaldson, and walked Justin
Smoak, but Teoscar Hernandez hit
into an inning-ending double play.
“Noah didn’t have his best stuff but
he battled through it,” manager
Mickey Callaway said. “I didn’t see
him attack the way I’ve seen him attack the past — ‘Here you go. You’re
going to have to beat me.’ — I thought
he was trying to place the ball a little
bit, running balls just off the plate. But
he’ll get to where he wants to be.
“I thought as the game went on,
couple of 20-something pitch innings, I thought he got a little
winded and tired.”
For the first time since April 20,
the Mets won with Syndergaard
starting.
Still, the wait for the “old Noah”
continues.
“He was a little bit off,” catcher
Devin Mesoraco said. “The first inning, and the bullpen, I said I don’t
know how anyone’s going to hit this.
He just kind of got somewhat erratic.”

METS NOTES
Vargas said before the Mets’ 12-2 win
over the Blue Jays. “I am glad that we got
some really good work out of it and I am
looking forward to the next time out.”
Despite a rough stretch of games
➤
for the Mets in which Mickey Call-
away has become a lightning rod,
the manager received a positive review from his boss.
“I like [Callaway] more than I liked
him in our first interview,” general
manager Sandy Alderson said. “He is
straightforward. He owns his mistakes.
He is creative. He learns from the experiences he’s had. I am very pleased
with what Mickey has done so far.”

BLUE JAYS: The

his second straight
loss. Happ has a
career 4.15 ERA in five
starts at Citi Field,
the most recent of
those coming in 2015.
His 11.2 strikeouts

STAT SO?
WORKMANLIKE: Noah Syndergaaard allowed just two runs but threw
a lot of pitches in his five-inning outing Tuesday night.
Anthony J Causi
throwing 45 pitches in the first inning, will pitch Friday against the Diamondbacks, according to Callaway.
Steven Matz will pitch Saturday, followed by Noah Syndergaard to conclude the series. The new alignment
separates deGrom and Syndergaard in
the rotation — they had previously
pitched back-to-back. Such an arrangement could prevent the Mets’ bullpen
getting worn out later in the rotation.
Jerry Blevins was placed on pa➤

BOSTON — The Celtics
punched the Cavaliers first
and never looked back in
rolling to a Game 1 rout.
LeBron James took a literal shot to the jaw in Game
2 but kept right on scoring.
So did the Celtics.
Jaylen Brown scored 23
points and Boston withstood a 42-point night by
James to beat Cleveland
107-94 on Tuesday and take
a 2-0 lead in the Eastern
Conference finals.
Terry Rozier added 18
points, while Al Horford
finished with 15 points and
10 rebounds.
Boston improved to 9-0
this postseason at TD Garden. The Celtics have never
blown a 2-0 series lead in
the playoffs.
“We’re going to fight,” Rozier said. “At this point we
don’t care if we win by half
a point. If we win, that’s all
that matters.”
James added 12 assists and
10 rebounds. He scored 21 of
Cleveland’s 27 points in the
first quarter, tying his playoff career high for points in
a period. His 42 points
marked his fifth 40-point
game of this postseason.
James had just 15 points and
missed all five of his 3-point
attempts in the Cavaliers’
Game 1 loss.
But he didn’t seem to play
with the same force after
straining his neck in a firsthalf collision and the Cavaliers wilted in the second
half, with the Celtics out-

“I think I’ll be fine. I’m not

You go out and when you
lay everything on the line, at
the end of the day, you can
live with that,” he said.
“They did what they had to
do, and that was protect
home, and now it’s our time
to try to do that, as well.”
Kevin Love finished with
22 points and 15 rebounds
for Cleveland.
Kyle Korver added 11
points off the bench for
Cleveland. But starters Tristan Thompson, JR Smith
and George Hill combined
for just 11 points on 5-of-17
shooting.
Tempers flared with 3:49
to play with Boston leading
97-89. Marcus Morris got in
Smith’s face after Smith
pushed Horford in the back
to prevent a layup. Smith
shoved Morris and the pair
had to be separated.
Smith was assessed a flagrant foul and both received
technical fouls.
“I felt like it was uncalled
for that type of play there,”
Horford said. “We have each
other’s backs. ... We moved
on to the next play way and
we locked in after that.”
Smith said there was no
malicious intent on the play.
“I blatantly pushed him. It
wasn’t like I was trying to
low bridge him or something. Just make sure he
didn’t get it,” Smith said. “It
was a good, hard foul.”— AP

WASHINGTON — Yankees general
manager Brian Cashman called Brandon Drury “a major leaguer right now,
but because of the unique circumstances of where we’re currently at
with this roster, we had a choice to
make and we optioned him out.”
Drury’s rehab assignment ended
Monday after he was on the disabled
list due to migraines and blurred vision,
and the Yankees decided to keep
Miguel Andujar in the majors.
YANKEES NOTES
“Miguel Andujar has come up and
done a nice job for us,’’ Cashman said
before the Yankees’ suspended game
against the Nationals on Tuesday.
“We’ll let Brandon continue, at least for
a period of time, at Triple-A, just given
the fact we have a pretty strong roster
right now.”
But he made it clear the competition
for third base wasn’t completely settled.
“I guess, stay tuned,” Cashman said.
“I know [Drury]’s hungry. This is the
best he’s felt in a long time. He knows
he can help us and impact us.”
Drury has 72 hours to report to
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, so he will continue to get treatment from Dr. Gil
Chimes, the team’s consulting sports
medicine chiropractor.
“It was a baseball decision, but we
also feel like there’s still room for him
to improve,’’ manager Aaron Boone
said of Drury’s health and production.
“He is absolutely an option for us right
now. We would have no hesitation
bring him up.”
Drury, whose versatility in the infield
was one thing that attracted the Yankees to him before they acquired him
from Arizona, will remain only at third
base for the foreseeable future.
“We have full confidence if we
needed [Drury] to play third base today,

[he could],” Cashman said. “It was an
acknowledgment of how we’ve played
as a team and Miguel Andujar’s contribution during that time frame. Because
of that, we thought we’d honor that, at
least for the time being. … We didn’t acquire Brandon Drury to play at Scranton. We acquired him to impact this
major league club, and I’m sure he will.”
Giancarlo Stanton got the 1,000th

gle and scored on a Tyler Austin sacrifice fly to tie the Yankees’ game against
the Nationals at 3-3. The game was suspended by rain after the top of the sixth

before the scheduled game at 7:05 p.m.
Cashman said he doesn’t have a

timeline for Greg Bird (ankle) at Dou-

the Supreme Court ruling that legalizes
sports gambling will have any impact
on players.
“I don’t think it changes anything for
us,” Sabathia said. “We still can’t bet on
baseball. I guess it’ll be easier to place a
bet for the Raiders.”
Boone is confident MLB will be “very
proactive” in protecting “the integrity
of our game and the safety of players
and umpires.”
Boone said that even with a second
off day this week on Thursday, he
would keep everyone in the rotation,
giving his pitchers an extra day of rest:
“That’s the way we prefer it, anyway.”

INSIDE THE MATCHUPS
YANKEES: The Red Sox tagged Sabathia for
four runs on nine hits in four-plus innings in
a no-decision Thursday. Boston’s 5-4 victory
marked the first time the Yankees had lost
a game started by Sabathia since April 6
against Baltimore. He had allowed just one
earned run in his previous four starts
(23 ¹/₃ innings).
NATIONALS: Scherzer has won six of his past
seven starts (with one no-decision), pitching
to a 1.70 ERA and holding opponents to a
.146 batting average in that stretch. He
struck out 26 batters in his past two starts,
over 13 ¹/₃ innings.

YANKEES: Aaron Judge is

to draw at least 33 walks
through his first 39 games.
Kevin Maas, with 40 in 1991,
and Jason Giambi, with 41 in

How drug works as masking agent
AP; Reuters
New York Post, Wednesday, May 16, 2018
nypost.com
52
● Furosemide, normally sold under the brand name Lasix, blocks sodium,
chloride and water from being reabsorbed into the blood before becoming urine,
thus causing an increase in urination.
● Usually prescribed to treat high blood pressure, Furosemide is a diuretic.
● Its relevance to Major League Baseball is that the drug can be used as a
masking agent for PEDs.
● Furosemide itself isn’t against the league’s rules, but if MLB determines a
player was using it as a masking agent, the drug triggers a positive test.
● It can be used as a masking agent by reducing the amount of drugs in the urine,
thus making them harder to detect.

FEAR FACTOR
Yanks had concerns over
All-Star’s PED-using pals
Administrator Thomas Martin.
His investigation determined
Cano was using the diuretic to
mask PED use. Then MLB investigated and found the same.
Thus, though the substance
detected was not a PED, the finding and the subsequent 80-game
suspension was as if it had been.
Cano will, therefore, lose roughly
$12 million in pay this season and
a good chunk of his reputation.
Cano is among the greatest second
basemen in history, and this will
cripple his Hall of Fame chances.
All his offense and durability will

b e g a n
Tuesday.
He was to miss time anyway with
a fracture in his right hand, but
since the suspension was determined before the injury occurred
Sunday, Cano is being allowed to
concurrently be on the disabled
list and suspended.
Initially, Cano filed a grievance
that was supposed to be heard
Tuesday in Seattle. On Friday,
the union asked MLB
to lessen the penalty.
On Saturday, MLB
refused. Not long after, Cano and
the union rescinded the grievance. Ultimately, Cano never disputed taking the substance or that
the substance is banned, only why
it was in his body, and neither the
Independent Program Administrator nor MLB believed his story.
Thus, the suspension came down
Tuesday — came down like a thud
on the Mariners, in particular.
The Yanks were Cano’s first
long-term choice when he hit
free agency, but when they
refused to go beyond

to look like
effort but fall

swinger signed a 10-year, $240
million pact with the Mariners.
Seattle was hoping Cano would be
the centerpiece to landing a longmissing playoff spot.
Cano has played well with the
Mariners. But Seattle still has
gone the longest in North American team sports without reaching a postseason (since 2001).
And even if they make it now, the
Mariners, by rules of the suspension, would not have Cano in the
playoffs. And their chances of getting there obviously dim without
Cano, who hit third in each of the
Mariners’ first 39 games.
Cano is still owed five years at
$120 million after this season, and
questions will arise how good he
will continue to be turning 36 in
October and with this suspension
now on his record. Another Mariner, Nelson Cruz, endured a PED
suspension and came back better
than before and rebuilt a good
deal of his reputation.
Cano is well-liked in the game.
But this will not be an easy road.
Not at his age and not if he actually was masking a PED and feels
he must stop using now.
He joins great players such as
A-Rod, Rafael Palmeiro and Manny Ramirez who have incurred
suspensions tied to the Joint
Drug Agreement and whose Hall
of Fame chances diminished.
Rodriguez — who seems to get
a new TV project per day — has
regained a lot of public standing
despite his nefarious past.
Cano now begins a period of
suspension and attempts at regeneration. He does it as a Mariner, in
part, because the Yankees feared
this day might be coming.

Ex-mates bummed by former Bomber’s bust
By DAN MARTIN
WA S H I N G T O N —
Robinson Cano’s former
Yankees teammates were
saddened to hear of the
second baseman’s 80-game
suspension for violating
Major League Baseball’s
Joint Drug Prevention and
Treatment Program, but
CC Sabathia knows better
than to be stunned by that
kind of news anymore.
“It’s surprising because I
know Robbie, but after the
Ryan Braun thing, nothing’s
surprising for me,’’ Sabathia
said of Braun’s 2013 ban.
Sabathia played with
Braun in Milwaukee for the
second half of the 2008 season, following Sabathia’s
trade from Cleveland.
“I never suspected anything,” Sabathia said of
Braun. “You never know
who’s doing what.”
General manager Brian
Cashman called Cano, who
signed with the Mariners
following the 2013 season,
“obviously an impactful
player here. He’s a great
guy. We enjoyed our time
with Robbie and the person he was when he was
with us. It’s probably best
for me to leave it at that
because he’s working for
somebody else now.”
Cashman also stressed
that if he had known the
second baseman was violating the policy while with
the Yankees, he would have
been forced to tell MLB or
incur a hefty fine.
“If I have any knowledge
of anybody past or present,
I’m obligated to convey
that knowledge to Major
League Baseball and I take
that seriously,” Cashman
said. “Knowledge is one
thing. Suspicion’s another.’’
Cashman said in a text he
was speaking generally and
not referring to having suspicions or knowledge of Cano.
Dellin Betances recalled
Cano befriending him shortly after Betances was drafted by the Yankees in 2006.
“It’s kind of sad, to be honest,” Betances said. “He’s a
close friend of mine. I really
couldn’t believe it. I still can’t
believe it. ... He’s a talented
player. You can’t take that
away from him. It doesn’t
change the way I look at him.”
Brett Gardner had similar thoughts.
“Any time you see a guy
get suspended, it’s disappointing,” Gardner said.
“He’s one of my favorite
teammates of all time, really. It’s just sad to see that
news. … It doesn’t change
the way he was to me as a
young player.”

ANKEES officials never
said it out loud because
it is not the kind of sentiment that gets publicized.
Instead, the Yankees
offered many explanations
why they never went all-out
to retain Robinson Cano as a
free agent following the 2013
season, such as fear of doing
a contract as long as 10 years,
concern Cano already had
passed 30, worry his thick body
would not age well.
But one reason — the one not
broadcast — was that Melky
Cabrera and Alex Rodriguez
already had been suspended
for their association with illegal performance-enhancing
drugs. Those were Cano’s
best friends on the Yankees.
And though no one can be
found guilty by association,
the Yanks were apprehensive enough about the tightness of that group to wonder
if Cano would ever be the
next domino to fall.
He now is.
It was announced Tuesday
that Cano was suspended 80
games for testing positive for
Furosemide, which is sold as
Lasix. It is a diuretic, and in his
statement Cano said it was given
to him by a licensed doctor in his
native Dominican Republic for “a
medical ailment” he did not specify. Cano added, “I have never
tested positive for a performanceenhancing substance.”
But understand the process
under the Joint Drug Program
between MLB and the union:
Cano was tested in the Dominican during the offseason. When
a positive result is shown for a
banned diuretic/masking agent
such as Furosemide, the case
goes to the Independent Program

Rain or shine: Game
still hangs in balance
By DAN MARTIN
WASHINGTON — After the
Yankees and Nationals had their
game suspended in the middle of
the sixth inning Tuesday with
the score tied 3-3, Aaron Boone
had a simple summation of the
evening.
“It was an odd night,” the manager said.
The teams are scheduled to resume the game at that point at
5:05 p.m. Wednesday, but with
more bad weather in the forecast. Both teams will get to put
an extra player on the roster for
the second game.
With severe thunderstorms
not far in the distance, the Yankees wasted several scoring
chances earlier in the game, but
in the end overcame a 3-0 deficit
to force the continuation.
They went 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position, but Tyler Austin delivered enough offense to keep the game going. He
entered the game in an 0-for-23
slide, but drove in all three runs
Tuesday.
His two-run homer off Gio
Gonzalez in the fourth cut the
Nationals’ lead to 3-2, and with
the bases loaded and one out in
the fifth, Austin hit a sacrifice fly
to deep center to drive in Giancarlo Stanton with the tying run.
“I think we knew that it was
coming, but didn’t know when,”
Austin said of the rain. “I don’t
think guys were trying to tie the
game because of the weather.”
They were certainly aware by
the top of the sixth, when the
scoreboards around the park
warned fans to take cover under
the concourse because of the oncoming storm, but the game continued for another half inning.

Sixth inning
Tuesday’s game is scheduled
to be completed starting at
5:05 p.m. Wednesday.
The Yankees left two runners
on in each of the first two innings and Masahiro Tanaka
struggled early, giving up a
homer to Anthony Rendon in the
first and a run-scoring single to
Andrew Stevenson and an RBI
double to Pedro Severino in the
second.
But the right-hander pitched
from the stretch starting in the
third inning — even with no runners on — and the adjustment
worked, as Tanaka retired the
last 11 batters he faced.
It wasn’t enough to get the
Yankees a win.
If they don’t wind up getting
both games in Wednesday, they
likely will have to find a makeup
date later in the season. Both
teams are off Thursday, but
Boone said there were several
scheduling issues that would
prevent them from playing and
the Yankees will head to Kansas
City, where they will face the
Royals on Friday.
“Hopefully, we get some level
of cooperation weather-wise
[Wednesday] and we can pull
this thing out,” Boone said. “I’m
glad we were able to fight back
in this. We got a couple of big
swings from Austin.”
Asked how it felt to finally
have a good game, Austin responded, “The game’s not over
yet. But it felt good to take a few
good swings.”

Turns out, they only played 5 ¹/₂ . Turns
out they tied the game in the fifth, two
outs shy of when they would’ve fallen on
the wrong end of a shortened game, and
they did that because
Tyler
Austin
—
snagged in an 0-for-23
slump heading in —
knotted the game at 3
with a sac fly after
earlier pushing the
Yanks back in the
game with a long tworun homer off Gio
Gonzalez.
They’ll finish the game Wednesday, assuming the bright colors that are still
looming go away. And the way the Yankees are going, all that means is an opportunity to win a couple of games on the
Mike Vaccaro
same day, which is the one thing they haven’t yet done this year.
But back to the original thought …
(And, since we dragged Mets fans into
this once already, it does beg the question
whether a Yankees-Nationals World Series would be a) just as bad or b) far worse
than the 2009 Series Mets fans had to endure when it was the Yankees and the
Phillies at a time when the Phils were
like Darth Vader to Mets fans. What
say you, brave Mets fan who has
made it to this, the 12th paragraph?)
The Yankees are clearly the best
team in baseball right now. But the
Nats entered this series having recovered nicely from an early slog
that found them sitting at 11-16 not
long ago before recovering nicely
and rattling off 13 wins in 15 games.
They get a well-pitched game every
night, they actually have a reliable bullpen this year and they still haven’t played
a game with their full complement of offensive weapons.
The Braves are out to a hot start. The
Phillies are playing well. The Mets are
starting to show signs that maybe they
can break free from the protracted funk
that followed a 12-2 start. But the NL East
still belongs to the Nats until proven otherwise, and there isn’t another team in
the NL that ought to scare the Nats right
now.
So, yes: this could well be the final two
left standing in late October, which
would be a nice renewal of a New
York-DC rivalry that has only briefly
been visited by the Mets and really has
its roots in the Stanley Cup playoffs
(though not for a few years) and, of
course, by some classic old Giants-Redskins battles (though not for a few decades).
Lot of ballgames between here and
there, of course. But on a rainy day, what
else do you have but your dreams and
your imagination?

W
ASHINGTON — If you are a Mets
fan who has wandered here, in the
middle of the Yankees section of
the sports page, then I applaud you for
caring about the other team in town, and
I warn you that the next sentence might
make you physically ill. So consider yourself warned.
But this Yankees-Nationals series sure
feels like a preview of the 2018 World Series.
(Hey … I DID warn you!)
If you are a Yankees fan, of course, the
only part of that sentence that really matters to you is the part about the Yanks being in the World Series, and it probably
makes you happy, but no more so than
anything else that happens during the
course of a regular day.
Like Tuesday, for instance. Right
around noon the news broke that Clint
Frazier was going to be recalled from
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and the glee
that abounded in Yankee-fan circles was
tangible.
It doesn’t seem to matter that, when
you take a hard look at Frazier’s 39-game
cameo in 2017, he was a less-than average
player (a .231 average, a .715 OPS, an OPS+
of 83). If Gleyber Torres was the holy
grail of Yankees acquisitions two years
ago then Frazier was a nose behind that.
Yankees fans love him. And now they
have him again. And
Frazier looked like
he’d just cashed a
winning exacta ticket.
“I can’t wait to get
started,” he said, “and
join the fun.”
Also Tuesday? The
Nationals jumped to a
3-0 lead in a game that
started even though anyone with a smart
phone could admire the bright colors on
Weather.com that were all but choking
the District — and bright colors are not a
good thing to see when you want to play
nine innings.
WASHINGTON — At least he didn’t
walk right out the door.
At the start of spring training this year,
that was Bryce Harper’s plan for how to
deal with questions about his impending
free agency. He told reporters to talk to his
agent, Scott Boras, because his focus was
only on this season and not anything beyond it.
Of course, as the Nationals hosted the
Yankees on Tuesday to begin a two-game
series, the idea of Harper in pinstripes came
back into focus. The 25-year-old grew up a
Yankees fan while idolizing Mickey Mantle,
and even before he began to play out the final year of his contract this season, many
had The Bronx booked as his next stop.
But as Harper answered questions about
his future Tuesday afternoon at Nationals
Park, all of his answers not-so-surprisingly
focused on his present.
“I’m a National
now,” Harper said.
“We’re going into this
series trying to win
some ballgames. It’s
the only thing on my
mind, trying to beat a
good team over there.”
Harper was not interested in discussing
his past Yankee fandom, or how those
BRYCE
past affinities affect
HARPER
him when he plays
against Mantle’s old team. The most he
would say about the Yankees was to acknowledge they have “one of the best lineups in all of baseball.”
“It doesn’t matter who we’re playing,”
Harper said. “If it’s the Yankees, Cubs,
Dodgers, Phillies, name it. It doesn’t really
matter the team or the atmosphere, just try
to go in there and win ballgames.”
It was an interesting list of teams for
Harper to reel off — all four of them potential suitors for his services during the
highly anticipated offseason to come.
Still, Harper had his mind on the Nationals. They arrived back home Monday having
won seven of their previous eight and 13of-15 since starting the season 11-16. Harper
has shouldered an even heavier load early
on as the Nationals try to manage a disabled
list that currently includes Daniel Murphy,
Adam Eaton and Ryan Zimmerman.
Whether or not Harper would want to be
a Yankee, there’s a whole other question
about how they would fit him in after acquiring Giancarlo Stanton in December.
Then again, these are the Yankees.
“We’re the New York Yankees; I know
the Steinbrenner family on down to Brian
Cashman, we’re never going to be bashful
about trying to make our team the best,”
manager Aaron Boone said, speaking in
general terms and not about Harper. “…
We’re always going to be aggressive and
feel like in a position to be able to do things
that give us a chance to be a great club.”

Juan Lagares’ chances to play in a
crowded Mets outfield have been
scant, but his production — especially at home and against lefthanded pitchers — is undeniable.
On Tuesday, soft-tossing
lefty Jaime Garcia served
as a piñata, not only for
Lagares, but the entire Mets
lineup in a 12-2 romp over the Blue
Jays at soggy Citi Field.

Boxscore
Page 45
Lagares, hitting in the No. 2 hole, finished 4-for-5 with three RBIs on a night
the Mets collected 16 hits and showed
life at the plate after a frustrating stretch
over the last 2 ¹/₂ weeks.
The victory was the second in three
games for the Mets, who are 12-0 alltime against the Blue Jays at home. The
franchise record for consecutive home
victories is 14 straight against the Pirates
in 1986-87.
Lagares is 9-for-27 (.333) against lefties
this season. He has also been a beast at
Citi, where he is 15-for-32 (.469) overall.
The Mets certainly need those contributions as Michael Conforto and Jay Bruce
continue to search for their respective
swings. And the fact Yoenis Cespedes is
battling a hip flexor injury that could
land him on the disabled list only increases Lagares’ importance.
“You have more players than there are
spots,” manager Mickey Callaway said.
“You try to mix and match the best you
can to put [Lagares] in a good spot, but it
seems whatever spot he’s been in he’s
done a heck of a job.”
Lagares had plenty of help Tuesday:
Amed Rosario tied a career high with
More Mets / Page 50
three hits and drove in two runs and
Devin Mesoraco reached base five
times, including a two-run homer in the
eighth that gave the Mets their final
runs. Mesoraco walked three times.
“We needed it,” Callaway said. “We
had a lot of production from the bottom
of our lineup to set the table for the top
and it was really good to see.”
The Mets turned it into a 9-2 runaway
with three runs in the fifth. Rosario,
Brandon Nimmo and Lagares each delivered an RBI single in the inning in
adding to the cushion.
Mesoraco, playing his first home game
with the Mets since arriving in a trade
with the Reds last week for Matt Harvey, added the icing with his two-run
blast in the eighth.
“It was very cool,” Mesoraco said.
“You want to make a good first impression and tonight I was able to do that.”
Seth Lugo and Jacob Rhame combined to give the Mets four scoreless innings of relief behind Noah Syndergaard, who struck out the side to begin
his night — after a rain delay of 1 hour,
26 minutes — but wasn’t
particularly
sharp
throughout.
Syndergaard slogged
through five innings in which he allowed two earned runs on five hits, two
walks and a hit batter. The right-hander
was removed at 103 pitches, after escaping trouble in the fifth when Teoscar
Hernandez hit into a double play.
The Mets erupted for five runs in the
fourth to take a 6-2 lead, knocking out
Garcia in the process. The big hit was
Lagares’ two-run single in an inning the
Mets sent nine batters to the plate and
collected five hits.
Bruce’s bloop double to left started
the rally before Mesoraco walked and
Syndergaard delivered a sacrifice fly for
his second RBI of the game. Rosario followed with an RBI double that just
missed clearing the right-center fence.
After Lagares delivered for two runs,
Asdrubal Cabrera stroked an RBI double against Jake Petricka for the Mets’
fifth run in the inning.
Syndergaard labored to escape a third
inning in which he threw 31 pitches
and surrendered two runs. Curtis
Granderson, in his first game back at
Citi Field since departing the Mets
last August in a trade with the Dodgers, started the rally with a single
and stolen base. Yangervis Solarte
stroked a two-run single that put
the Mets in a 2-1 hole after Justin
Smoak had singled and Hernandez was hit by a pitch to
load the bases.
Syndergaard’s brokenbat RBI double in the second brought in the
game’s first run. Mesoraco walked leading
off the inning to begin the rally.

There was so much good
stuff bundled into this game for
the Mets, but nothing better
than offense from places so
lacking this season, namely
catcher with new acquisition
Devin Mesoraco reaching
safely five times and Amed Rosario tying a career-high with
three hits while also driving in
two runs.
The Mets entered the fourth
inning hitless in 24 straight atbats with runners in scoring position and then delivered seven
hits in such situations between
the fourth and fifth to put the
game away.
Noah Syndergaard, with RBIs
in each of his first two plate appearances, hit better than he
pitched, but held it together for
five innings that needed 103
pitches and the Mets ended a
six-game Citi losing streak and
won for just the eighth time in
the past 24 games overall.
That is the flip side to the 12-2
start, the 8-16 succession. That

Anthony J. Causi
before and after has left uncertainty about the true quality of
the 2018 Mets.
Mickey Callaway said: “I
think we are somewhere in the
middle, which is a pretty good
team.”
But is it?
Even with a win and a 20-18
overall record, the Mets are
fourth in an NL East in which
the Nationals have recently
hinted at playing to their lofty
pedigree while the Braves and
Phillies have suggested they are
not just pleasant nuisances
likely to vanish soon.
As with beauty, the 2018 Mets
to date are in the eye of the be-
holder. If you want to see positives, you can see them. If you
don’t, you don’t.
Alderson described himself
as “bullish” on his eighth team
as GM, in part, due to “improvement” with the rotation.
He said, “We have started to get
more depth.” Except they already have given up on Matt
Harvey. Jason Vargas, three disastrous starts into his Met tenure, threw a simulated game
Tuesday because he is being
skipped this turn.
The pitching coach, Dave Eiland, tried to tamp down the
expectations on Syndergaard
because, as he told The Post’s
Mike Puma, “He is yet to do a
whole lot at the major league
level.” Jacob deGrom has been
as good as ever, but just did a
short DL stint with a hyperextended elbow. Steven Matz and
Zack Wheeler still remain as often confounding as consistent.
Alderson praised his bullpen,
and the injection of Robert
Gsellman and Seth Lugo has increased the depth and versatility of the unit. But are you comparing to expectations or the
competition? Because the Mets’
bullpen Wins Above Replacement (Fangaphs) ranked 26th
out of 30 teams going into
Tuesday.

Yoenis out of lineup as Mets ponder possible DL stint
By HOWIE KUSSOY
Yoenis Cespedes was absent from
Tuesday’s lineup — and could be left
out of several more.
Cespedes underwent an MRI exam
Tuesday, which revealed the Mets slugger
has a mild strain of his right hip. The outfielder missed his first game of the season,
and will be evaluated over the next few
days to determine whether he
will require a stint on the
disabled list.
Cespedes had
been
playing
through what he
believed to be a
quad injury, but he informed the team Tuesday that he hadn’t felt any
improvement since Sunday.
“It’s the same lingering injury,” Mets
general manager Sandy Alderson said
prior to the 12-2 win over the Blue Jays.
“What we decided, in the best interest of
him for the moment, take him out of the
lineup. ... We’ll monitor things over the
next day or two, and see how things go.”
Cespedes had been praised by new
manager Mickey Callaway over the
weekend for “gutting it out” — hitting a
home run Sunday in Philadelphia — but
the Mets are hoping to avoid the mistakes of seasons past, when the outfielder played through injuries, and endured extended absences.
The 32-year-old was limited to 81
games last season with hamstring injuries, and battled a quad injury in 2016.
Alderson spoke with Cespedes about
the possibility of going on the DL, and
the general manager said the outfielder
is “prepared to be realistic” about the
situation.
“We’re very mindful that at some point
this can’t continue,” Alderson said.
“We’re better off taking a more cautionary approach. ... He’s still functional, and
this is not a typical injury where running
or what have you, will lead to greater injury but we are gonna be careful.”
If Cespedes lands on the 10-day DL,
the Mets can only backdate his stint to
Monday. So, even though Callaway said
Cespedes was available as a pinch hitter
Tuesday, the manager said he was reluctant to send the slugger to plate.
“We have to definitely take that into
consideration,” Callaway said of a potential backdate. “We have to have an
obvious chance to win the game if we’re
gonna use [him] ... and that’s how I’ll approach it.”
This season, Cespedes leads the Mets
with eight home runs and 28 RBIs, and
is batting .255. He had been even better
recently, batting .360 (18-for-50) with
three homers, while reaching base
safely in 15 of the past 16 games he’s
started.
The Mets weren’t ready to be without
his bat. They also don’t know if it’s
worth using it.
“Partly what we want to do is make
sure that we’re reading [Cespedes] correctly, we understand what the full extent of the injury is, the degree to which
it’s improving or not improving,” Alderson said. “So from our standpoint, particularly with the days off we’ve been
trying to take advantage of those. We’ll
make a decision in the next couple days
in that regard.”
hkussoy@nypost.com

Joel Sherman
The ineffectiveness of Jerry
Blevins has bled into Callaway’s
decision-making, shortening
the number of arms the manager trusts in big spots. And
with three more innings from
Lugo, he joins Gsellman and
Sewald in the top 11 in relief innings. Will a price be paid for
that reliance?
As for offense, Alderson conceded, “We have to score more
runs.” They did that against the
foundering Blue Jays pitching
— four hits and four RBIs from
Juan Lagares leading the way.
But aside from Asdrubal Cabrera and to some degree Brandon Nimmo, the Mets have not
gotten sustained positive performance and ranked 21st in
runs per game going into this
series.
And the Mets seemed poised
to place Yoenis Cespedes on
the DL. He did not start Tuesday with what the team continues to call “a mild strain of the
right hip flexor.” He probably
would have been disabled before this series if the Mets’ Triple-A team was not in Las Vegas and a replacement was easier to get to New York on time.
Trying to orchestrate all
these moving parts is Callaway,
about whom Alderson said, “I
like him more than I liked him
in our first interview.” Callaway
was in the interview room
Tuesday when Alderson provided that answer, but Alderson
did cite areas — learning from
mistakes, creativity, positivity
— that he graded high with the
new manager.
But the past few weeks have
not been kind to Callaway, most
notably
with
his
batting-out-of-order snafu.
Any judgment is too early for
him — and his squad. He is presiding over a team good enough
to go both 12-2 and 8-16. Twenty-five percent of a season has
not revealed who exactly the
Mets are.
New York Post, Wednesday, May 16, 2018
T
HE Mets played a game
Tuesday reminiscent of
their 12-2 start — what
feels like the good ole days, albeit only last month in
reality.
They have offered
such a split personality to this season that
Sandy Alderson called
a pregame inquiry into
the true identity of this
team “a good question.”
The general manager answered with positive spin, as
you would expect, and then the
Mets responded in the best way
possible by clobbering the Blue
Jays 12-2 — the Mets’ 12th victory in as many home interleague games against Toronto.

JUAN SOLO
Juan Lagares drives in a pair of runs with a fourth-inning single, part of his 4-for-5, three-RBI, two-run night as the Mets blasted the Blue Jays 12-2 on
Tuesday to open an eight-game homestand on a good note after going 0-6 in their previous stay at Citi Field. Amed Rosario added three hits and two RBIs.
