@jimbojoker38 asked why Keith Miller has a banner outside Citi Field.
Seems curious, right?
Then read this.
So Keith Miller is an agent. Interesting.
And (at least in 2010) the Daily News says his firm is David Wright’s firm.
And there they are on a banner together.
A longer than usual excerpt.
Using deductive reasoning, I think it’s safe to conclude that our section not being shown or mentioned wasn’t because the Mets/WPIX producers and camera guys simply missed it or forgot.
We were a group of 500 Mets fans in orange shirts screaming in the bleachers at Wrigley Field for an entire game. We were impossible to miss. Moreover, our presence was free publicity for a franchise that’s in dire need of it.
Why on Earth would anyone connected with the Mets not want to show a section of 500 fans most who flew halfway across the country who came out to see the 2013 Mets, a team that was 16-23 when Saturday’s game began?
It seems to me that our section was ignored on purpose, and that the order came from someone who didn’t want to highlight The 7 Line in a positive way. What that person failed to realize, is that it wasn’t about The 7 Line, it was about 500 die hard fans, including Darren, who traveled to Chicago during a season when the team is struggling because we love the Mets. The Mets and WPIX pretended we didn’t exist. It was both an insult to us and an idiotic public relations move.

@cofeeny sent this in the first.
It’s been said many times before, but it bears repeating: Memorial Day is not a day for celebrating the military. It’s a day for honoring the military dead. A more appropriate gesture would be an MLB-wide black armband. An even better gesture would be a pregame moment of silence, without anything on the uniform. But [...]
