Good afternoon …
Mets lead, 2-0, in the second. Spoke to David Wright before the game about his mini-slump, so naturally he doubles in two in the first.
Day game after night game, so it was a slow day this morning. Caught up with some of the Yankees. Spoke with Joe Torre, Alex Rodriguez, Jorge Posada and Derek Jeter. It is nice to be remembered. I’ll always remember the Yankee clubhouse as being very professional. There were a few moments—David Wells, for example, I could have lived without, but in the end those moments helped me grow as a reporter.
Between innings there was a player poll on the winter song they most wanted to hear. Let it Snow beat out Jingle Bells. A refreshing tune for July.
Here’s what’s happening with the Mets today.
Carlos Delgado will sit for at least another day and Cliff Floyd is sitting (makes sense against a lefty like Randy Johnson). … Paul Lo Duca is the DH again. … Xavier Nady is back in right. … Chris Woodward in for Jose Valentin at second.
That’s it for now … need to get a cup of hot chocolate.
