A Taste of Spring
What an afternoon for sports. The Mets in St. Louis, the Yankees hosting the Red Sox up in the Bronx, the NFL underway. I flipped between the Mets and Yankees games. It was a treat to see Pedro get a lot of run support, especially in light of how much of it came from the kiddie corp (a pair of doubles from Jacobs, three RBI from Diaz). But it felt like spring training, a workout to test talent for the future more than a game with immediate consequences, especially in contrast to the nail-bitter the Yankees and BoSox engaged in.
