Get me talking long enough and I’ll put my foot in my mouth. Get me talking about the Mets long enough and I’ll say something like this to a writer for AM New York, a free daily given out on the subways:
Still, Eno Sarris of Mets blog amazinavenue.com doesn’t think the team’s off-the-field troubles — including a search for a minority share buyer to help bail it out — will affect the players.
“It’s no crazier than answering a question about your closer punching his father-in-law in the face,” said Sarris, referring to Franciso Rodriguez’s troubles last year. “They’re used to this media scrutiny.”
Yep. We talked about 20 minutes, and that’s what it got me. A hyperlink would have been nice, but I don’t mind talking about the Mets, and I guess I stand by this comment. New York is a distraction. Whether it’s the media or the town itself, New York always has too much going on. Most of the Mets should be used to it by now.
Oh, and the typo is not mine.
