Had lunch today at a St. Louis institution, Charlie Gitto’s. Small Italian place a few blocks from the park. It’s one of those places with autographed photos all over the wall. Bobby Valentine and Ralph Kiner is the Mets’ presence.
There’s also Joe DiMaggio, Frank Sinatra and Tom Lasorda (now, that’s Italian!)
Those are my favorite types of places to eat at on the road. Chili’s, Friday’s, etc. are all the same.
At the park now and it is pouring. Tarp is on the field and the forecast is lousy. Cardinals say they will play. Going to be a late night.
Ran into Willie Randolph and several of his coaches walking into the park around 1:30 … he gets there that early. Time to run. Catch up later.
