I spoke with the Mets this morning and they said refunds for unused playoff tickets will automatically be credited to your account. I’m trying to find out about their season-ticket plans for next season and will keep you up to speed.
Do you guys remember the library? When I had reports to do we’d go to the library after school. There were even such things as library dates. Of course, that was before the Internet.
Anyway, I’ve re-discovered the library. It has become my office. I’ll go there in the morning to write and email letters. Some times there are too many distractions at home. Plus, I have to get out of the house.
I will get some breakfast and head there. Work until lunchtime then come home and make some calls.
I have to check in with the Mets today on ticket refunds. You know, if they would just make the damn playoffs there wouldn’t be this hassle. Also, see what’s going on with Jerry Manuel’s coaching staff.
And, of course, if anything happens during the day you can read about it here. Have a good day.
An arrest warrant was issued Friday in the Dominican Republic for Mets pitcher Ambiorix Burgos on charges stemming from a hit-and-run accident that killed two women.
“We recommend that Mr. Burgos turn himself in so we can start the judicial process,” Prosecutor Raul Quiroz said.
Burgos’ SUV struck Josefina Minaya Martinez, 38, and Angely Fana, 29, Tuesday in the town of Nagua, and both died at a hospital. Witnesses placed Burgos behind the wheel, but his cousin Edwin Silvestre Sanchez claimed to be driving. Sanchez was released from police custody Friday.
Quiroz said Burgos had recently been arrested on a charge of illegal weapon possession and released. Burgos was also arrested last month in New York on assault and harassment charges.
The Mets will hold a press conference this afternoon to officially announce the signing of Jerry Manuel as manager. He will get a two-year deal with an option for a third year.
FoxSports.com and SI.com are reporting Jerry Manuel has agreed to a two-year contract with a club option for a third season. The Mets have not yet confirmed.
More details to follow.
This hardly comes as a surprise.
