Who’s The “Not Me” This Time?

Many years ago I worked in an office that had a large staff. When the office manager found that something had been screwed up he would call everyone in and rant, “Who’s the ‘NOT ME’ responsible for this?” I always found that funny – maybe because invariably the culprit was NOT ME.

What you didn’t expect was for Wilpon to talk with manager Terry Collins in his office for about 20 minutes after the game. Collins said Wilpon would be a regular presence during spring training. Let’s […]

Featured Post: Who Are These Swagger-iffic New York Mets?

“You know, for years and years, you used to watch those teams that won all of the time, they had an air about them. You used to play the Braves and they’d walk out there and, they weren’t cocky, but they were confident. They weren’t overbearing, they knew how to play, they knew what they […]
