I take my milestones seriously, so I’m excited to be heading off to Shea with a lifetime ball total of 2,698.
The last time I caught fewer than two balls at Shea was on August 24, 2004 when I got just one. That was 31 Mets games ago for me, so the odds are that I’ll reach 2,700 tonight. It probably won’t be a very exciting ball in the grand scheme of things. I predict someone on the Mets will toss it my way. Hmm. Who might it be? I’ll go with Tom Glavine. Why not.
Weather permitting, I’m planning to go to Shea for the next three nights. The Marlins have always been a generous team, so I should do pretty well…
