I have a lot of things I want to say about the new signings, but I can’t put up my Tuesday posting this week because I am totally swamped grading papers and exams. I do want to say to regular readers that I will be posting some excellent news soon about my forthcoming book, The Last Days of Shea. If you liked Mets Fan, you’ll really like The Last Days of Shea, and it appears that it will be out next year and available in bookstores everywhere. As soon as the actual contract is signed, I’ll give you all the details. Enjoy the holiday season everyone, and let’s go Mets!
