Down at fantasy camp, Wally talks about how the Mets shouldn’t worry about the Yankees, and Tim Teufel and Ed Charles also comment – the ear catching quote goes to Ed Kranepool who didn’t pick his words carefully.
Like Mets fans, Kranepool said he only watches the team if they are winning.”I only watch a good product,” Kranepool said. “If they are winning, I will watch, and if not, I turn the station and root for someone else.”I am a Met true and true. I am the only guy who played his whole career with the Mets, Ive got the longest time, longevity-wise … but I still want to see a good ball club.”
I’m gonna guess is that he’s like me and will watch Burn Notice if the Mets are 27 games out in September, or that I “rooted” for the Giants in the World Series. Probably coulda been better phrased.
I still have an itch to go to Spring Training but all my friends are old and fuddy-duddies. Nobody has coin or will take a day off from work.
