GREETINGS FROM THE HOME OFFICE ON STATEN ISLAND

Hi y’all just back from Boston and I must apologize for the lack of posts the last few days. We spent three days at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel, a beautiful old hotel with a grand lobby ( I love hotel lobbies ) first class dining, fabulous accomodations and a great location (two blocks from Boston Common and three stops on the Green Line to Fenway Park) but the big draw back was the lack of internet serivce. The hotel charges $12 bucks a day for service and my WI-FI was picking  up weak signals from neighboring business and residence and since we spent hardly any time in the room, it didn’t pay to get service (nor did I have the time as Boston is a walking city and boy did WE WALK!!!!) as I just about made it through Baseball Tonight each night before falling asleep.

So since I was gone the Mets have hit a skid but the kids are arriving in Eddie Kunz and David Murphy joining Mike Evans and it looks like The Teen Aged Hitting Machine is close to joining the club as well. Billy Wags is on the DL and for some reason J-Man thinks Aaron Heilman can close. Maybe someday the light will go on in someone in someone in the Mets front office head and realize that Heilman should be a starter. He neither has the make up or stuff to close. His head and heart is not in it. I can see with Dirty losing velocity and no one else on this staff with closer qualities then why not just give the job to Kunz. Sure it’s baptism under fire but at this point what choice do the Mets have? at least Kunz has closer history and did pitch in pressure situations in college so what the hell let him close.

More tomorrow on my trip to Fenway  What a great time we had. We went to the game on Sunday and then went back Monday for a tour of the ball park. I haven’t been to Fenway in about 15 years and I have to give props to the current Red Sox managemnt for fixing the place up and making it a must see ballpark for any baseball fan.

  1. Welcome back, I hope your return coincides with a return to consistent good results on the field.

  2. Also, if you could pitch the 9th, that would be awesome.

  3. Ahhh, Fenway Park!

    Was there for 2 Games this Year. It has changed a lot since my 2 Game Forays in 2000 and 1st Game in 1997;

    It’s the ULTIMATE Party Park

  4. Funny, but the Closest place to party is at Bobby V’s Old Place, across the GCP from Shea Stadium:

    There’s no “There, There” by Shea
