After last night’s ballgame, and during the postgame show on SNY, Mets manager Jerry Manuel was asked how Citi Field “played”, and whether he thought the expansive park was “fair”.
“I like the park …. I like it …. I like the park … I like the way the park plays … I like the park … I like it …”
Brings back memories of Mikey and Life cereal, doesn’t it?
So, for those trying to decipher the message “between the lines”, it appears that Jerry Manuel likes Citi Field.
Or, perhaps he really likes his job, and knows what to say to retain his paycheck.
