Blogger: Joe Torre
Now I’ve seen everything.
Former Mets manager Joe Torre (I know he managed somewhere else, but can’t remember where) has a blog. And yet there isn’t one ad for Bigelow Tea.
Speaking of former Mets managers, what I’d really like to see is a blog from Davey Johnson, who as you might know is managing Mets pitcher Brandon Knight (among others) at the Olympics in Beijing.
Johnson is doing a fine job with Team USA, which most of us are happy to see — partly because we as Americans are rooting for our team, but also because it’s hard to be a Mets fan and not like Davey, who managed the Mets out of the basement and into one of their most glorious seasons.
Davey’s US team of no-names beat Japan in 11 innings to grab the third seed. However, that means their next opponent is second-seeded Cuba (South Korea is #1). Johnson is sending the team’s only amateur — San Diego State righty Stephen Strasburg to the hill against the Cubans on Friday. Game time is 6pm in China, 6am EST for the rest of us.
