It’s a beautiful day in the Big Apple, would have been a great afternoon for a ballgame, but ESPN had to step in and screw that all up. So we wait. I did have a great lunch today with Jaime Jarrin at the Carnegie Deli. As I looked around at all the celebrities whose pictures were on the wall (if you have never been there, almost every square inch of wall space is covered by photos of celebs who have stopped in for a nosh), I couldn’t believe Jaime’s wasn’t there. I mean, the guy is a Hall of Famer and has a star on the Walk of Fame, but no photo at the Carnegie Deli? Lasorda has a photo in there.
Anyway, here’s the lineup for the game, which still doesn’t start for another 2 1/2 hours. Ether is sitting. He has never faced Johan Santana, but that guy has a way of messing up left-handed hitters for weeks after they face him. Guess Torre is taking his chances with Loney and DeWitt.
