“They have a problem they don’t understand: This is not a desirable location. New York is desirable, but this is the wrong borough. I don’t think it has sunk in with Jeff yet that he is running a team that the best people might not want to work for.”  ~  An NL Executive I think […]

Some mind-blowing stuff from the guys at Deadspin. A reader submitted the following to them detailing an incident that took place on a flight to Chicago for today’s game against the Cubs.
