Even our hero couldn't keep this Cubs blowout interesting. After Scott Schoeneweis grooved a ball to Aramis Ramirez, I flipped on the VCR and caught up with last night's 24 as it seemed Keith was not is his usually wacky mode. Still, he did do a Lenny Dykstra impression; he talked about his weakness in geometry when Jose Reyes, David Wright and Endy Chavez former a triangle converging on a pop up; and that the signing he, Gary, Ron and Lee Mazilli are doing at the SNY studios Friday at 11:30 will be getting him out of bed early. Upon hearing that, Gary couldn't resist:
Gary: "You're a man of the people."
Keith: "Oh yeah, I always have been. (laughs from Gary and Ron) I'm a real blue collar guy."
In other news, congrats to Matt Cerrone from Metsblog for scoring some air time with Kevin Burkhardt and getting some kudos (and a mention an inning later) from Gary. My question is this--does this mean Mets blogging has reached the tipping point? Will the old school media start co-opting the ideas the bloggers unleash? I'd be interested to hear any thoughts folks have in the comments.
