In his must-read daily blog over on ESPN.com, Buster Olney wonders why the Mets weren’t ripped more for yesterday’s loss in the New York papers.
Good question, Buster. If this slide continues, the media honeymoon could be over for Omar Minaya and Willie Randolph.
Speaking of media, noted author John Feinstein has been following around the Yankees and Mets this season working on a book about Mike Mussina and Tom Glavine. It’s an interesting idea, looking at two smart, veteran pitchers as they try and remain viable starters for playoff contenders in New York.
But the process has become too painful for Mussina and he has cut off his weekly sessions with Feinstein. I hope he picks it back up again, as the book will be one worth reading.
Meanwhile, I’m working on a book of my own about the Yankees. It’s called “The MRI and Me: The story of Carl Pavano.” Look for it soon.
