An article by posted on May 11, 2010 0 Comments

Those of you who know me and follow my writing know that I have a unique nickname for Jose Reyes.  It’s “Junior”.  “Why Junior?”, you ask?  His initials are JR, which is the abbreviation for junior.  And right now, it couldn’t be more appropriate.

Okay, I admit it: from my redoubt here in Zurich, Switzerland I am pretty guilty of not having watched yesterday’s terrible loss to the Giants through any medium other than Gameday, and so some may feel I shouldn’t opine on what happened yesterday.
