Since the upgrade of the back end of the bullpen, the Mets off season has dragged on like the Bataan Death March, every day the same story lines of OP, No Manny, Petey begging for a job, hearing the name Randy Wolf more often than Iâ€™d like and on and on but Iâ€™m starting to get an understanding on what itâ€™s like to negotiate and make a big decision on a life changing matter.
My son got his high school acceptance letters this weekend and Iâ€™m proud to say he made all three of his high school choices and has been accepted in the Scholars Program at all three schools. His top two choices (St Peterâ€™s Boys and Monsignor Farrell) have offered him full four year scholarships (yes, hard to believe heâ€™s my kid but believe me he takes after his mom thank god) both schools are excellent schools and each one offers things the other doesnâ€™t such as small class (St Peters) and broader base of extracurricular (Farrell) so the choice is a difficult one.
As I said my son is 100 % like his mother so he thinks things out and is very methodical about his decisions unlike his father who goes on impulse and does very little thinking so this decsion may go to the deadline which is January 31.
So my concern for which way Omar and the Mets will turn for pitching has been diverted while my own family negotiating is ongoing but I would like to find out if Scott Boras represents High School freshman?
