I got an e mail today from my cousin Dave, who is a huge Mets fan.
The subject was "HOPE."
Now Dave is a lifelong Republican, so I doubt it was an Obama e mail.
Nope, his e mail simply said "Ike Davis, 1st ML AB, base hit.
The Mets are FINALLY taking my advice and going with young kids.
I'm not saying Ike Davis is the new Albert Pujols... but the idea of a young kid coming up and getting a hit has got my Met fan friends (and family) more excited than the Jason Bay signing.
And it will be a memorable first day at the office for Ike.
He gets a pie in his face the first day and the first uniform number he wore was #42
