RAB in the house at Citi


That picture was taken by Mike, from the press box at Citi Field. He’ll be covering the game from there tonight and Sunday, and I’ll be your humble host tomorrow afternoon. We’d like to thank the YES Network and the Mets for giving us this opportunity. Mike will be back later with lineups and your game thread.

Update By Mike (3:07pm): Curtis Granderson was on the field running the bases, sprinting from first to second as well as first to third. Played some long-toss in the outfield (he was by the Xerox sign in right-center, the guy he was playing with was on the foul line by third base. I couldn’t throw a ball that far with a relay man), and now he’s taking groundballs and shagging flies and fielding balls off the wall in center and throwing to third and all that jazz.

Here’s a shot of him running…

    I don’t blame the Mets for not letting a law school student in their press box. ;)
