Something To Feel Good About

Lately, there has been a lot of negativity on this blog. Maybe it’s me. Or maybe it’s because the Mets stink, the Wilpons are broke, and the Mets stink.

So, today I have something positive to report, though it has nothing to do with the Mets (though, it is a New York story).

Carlos Flores, Jr. will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Yankee Stadium on Opening Day. He’s the son of the “subway hero” who saved a man’s life last summer. Carlos Jr. is also a pretty good baseball pitcher — despite having only one hand. He says Jim Abbott is his inspiration, but his dad is his hero. Awesome.
