Folks, I don’t live in New York anymore, and haven’t since 1992.  Sure, I can get all my Mets news online and I can watch and listen to games online or on cable.  But nothing beats living there–the talk, the camaraderie, the print newspapers that you can read with two hands and two eyes (unless […]
