Last week Angel Pagan arrived late to $iti Field, the Mets had no problem with this since Pagan contacted management that he a family issue to take care of. No problem. The next day while I was reading the Daily News, it was reported that Pagan was taking his daughter to the doctor and afterwards got jammed up in traffic getting to the game. Again no problem, but was it any of our business that Pagan was late due to taking care of his daughter ? No.
A.J. Burnett shows up at Camden Yards with a black eye. He goes on to pitch the Highlander’s to victory, when questioned after the game about how he got yoked in the eye, Burnett gave the MSM nothing. When Pee Wee Cashman was asked about the black eye he said it wasn’t any of his business and if Burnett keeps pitching like he did Friday with the eye, Pee Wee would look to blacken his eye at every start. HA HA HA so funny.
Highlander pitching coach Dave Eiland leaves the team for about four weeks in June for what was called personal reasons. When asked about Eiland ,manager Joe Girardi told the media he was taking care of a personal matter and that’s all you’re getting.
Staten Island Yankees pitching coach Pat Daneker, lost his World Series ring when after spending a night in a drunken stupor with a prostitute. The story came and went. Were any of these stories our business? Nope and the Highlanders made sure it stayed that way.
How is it the Highlanders get to clam up on incidents involving their personnel but the when a Mets player takes his kid to the doctor the details are printed in the paper’s ?
Maybe when The Skill Sets re-configure the front office and the way the baseball ops does business, they also pick up from the Highlanders the gift of allowing no leaks to the press and also letting them know when to go fuck off.
Blogging at this site will be sporadic over the next week as I’ll be on the move as our office is getting a face lift with a badly needed paint job and a new carpet. Our office could have double as a set for the old NYPD Blue TV show. So during the daytime I’ll be all over the city but mostly in Queens with no computer access. So anything I do post will be at night if I’m not exhaust from gallivanting from boro to boro.
