I’ve covered baseball for 16 years and have had my share of flight delays and cancellations. According to my intinerary, I should have been home last night.
I’m in Detroit. Delayed last night until I missed connection and had to spend another night in Orlando. Missed connection this morning here and won’t get home until tonight. Since “it’s not our fault,’’ there is no sense of wanting to put me on another carrier. Not a whole lot of cooperation from the airlines, but then again, I wasn’t expecting much. Pleased to have a loaded iPod and DVDs of the first season of Hogan’s Heroes. Mick Jagger and Sgt. Schultz have kept me busy in between phone calls to agents.
Willie Randolph visited a couple of hospitals in the city, but no word yet on if Barry Zito plans to take a bite out of the Big Apple.
