>I fly back north tomorrow, but first, the Mets-Michigan state game (and maybe Jerry Seinfeld). I’m working on some kind of longer post about spring training that may not be ready until later in the week, or even next Monday. Plus, I don’t want to turn this into a Mets diary . . . I’m going shoot for quality over quantity, although I may end up with neither. We’ll see.
Anyway, I’m start with an old-school literary edition of the links due to time constraints. Also, apologies for missing last weeks link dump – The blackout in CT and NY was responsible for that.
First, the wordy ones:
Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams:
“The Silent Season of a Hero” by Gay Talese.
Now, some Mets stuff:
NJ.com question and answers with Jeff Francoeur, including his NCAA bracket strategy.
Davey Johnson talks to the New York Times about grumpy ex-manager stuff.
Hisanori Takahashi has a fortune teller, who told him to first fly to New Zealand for a day, then to America.
Jeff Wilpon has a video blog! (May not be the real Jeff Wilpon.)
That’s it for this abbreviated edition of the links. I’ll have spring training stuff up eventually. Enjoy your Sunday.
