It took a little while to get into swing this year, but my packed 7-train the last two days means it must be September. Wait there’s a disconnect, it’s 89 degrees out and the Mets are in first place in the NL East and a virtual lock for the post season. I’ve finally absorbed Queens being called the top destination in 2015, but the Mets still around? For the last seven years they’ve finished the season 17 to 25 games back, forcing their fans to embrace tennis if they wanted any sports action in Flushing come summer’s end. Plus ca change, but at least interest rates still remain the same.
