Well, I’m sure you hadn’t forgot how it felt, but the Mets bullpen blew another game yesterday. Jeff Gold provides the gory details.
He also has a notebook about John Maine’s painful present and uncertain future. Jeff also updates us on the return of Luis Castillo, the hot bat of Brian Schneider, and how you can buy hard plastic in a garish bright orange for the low, low price of $869.
Seriously though, the father of a friend of mine from middle school had a pair of seats from the old Yankee Stadium in his basement, which was kind of a man-room…pool table, dart board, bar, indoor/outdoor rug, low ceiling…you know the type.
Anyway, I thought the seats were kind of sweet in that setting. A lot of people have jerseys or autographs on display. Seats from Shea (or Yankee Stadium for that matter) may be a unique touch to a basement.
Now, for $869 you could also take a five-day cruise to the Bahamas…
