Stadium concrete company indictment

By

Testwell Laboraties, Inc., the company originally hired to provide concrete for the new Yankee Stadium, has been indicted on state racketeering charges. Concerns over the company first came to light in June when The Times revealed that Testwell officials had been arrested and that the company had not been testing their concrete. As the Yankees said then, they say now: The concrete at the new stadium has been independently tested, and everything is OK.

    Wait, Testwell did something dishonest? I don’t believe this. What’s next, a Sox fan will think Pedroia is the MVP?

  2. The Honorable Congressman Mondesi says:

    Poor Testwell. Never recovered from the stigma they acquired by inadvertantly giving the mayorship to Giuliani after the great FroYo debacle of 1993.

    Actually, just a quick correction. Testwell doesn’t provide the concrete, they just test it.

    Does anyone know the Yanks hired to inspect the stadium’s concrete?

    Don’t mean to pat myself on the back, but I had this story on the 21st.
