SLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOWWWWWWLLLLLY I TURN

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 I’d like and on and on but I’m starting to get an understanding on what it’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 I’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 Peter’s Boys and Monsignor Farrell) have offered him full four year scholarships (yes, hard to believe he’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 doesn’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?

  1. Congrats to your son for doing such a great job and getting accepted into such great schools. Whatever he decides I’m sure he’ll do fine. I wish I felt as confident about the boys over at Citi Field.

    Great news for your son Steve !!!

    Full rides are nice and easier on Mom and Dads
    bank account.

    My son received a call from a admissions officer from Seton Hall Friday night…because
    of his SAT scores he is now eligible for a $12.500 dollar scholarship.
    Great! That means we only have to pay 27.500…excuse me while I just reach into my pocket and get that for him…

  3. Great news! I remember when I got the acceptance letter from Xaverian. No one was more shocked than my 8th grade nun.
