I think that Adam Rubin has been writing too much and watching too little baseball:
A preliminary schedule for next season reveals that the Twins and
Tigers are scheduled to visit Citi Field, the Daily News has learned.
The Mets also expected to visit Cleveland, in addition to the customary
home-and-home series with the Yankees . . . Other than the Santana connection, there doesn’t seem to be much in the way of storylines. The Indians’ roster includes ex-Met Joe Smith, while you may remember Anderson Hernandez was originally acquired from Detroit for Vance Wilson.
“Storylines?” I thought the games themselves are supposed to provide the storylines. What is this, figure skating? Are we not supposed to care unless there’s some personal connection or something?
Here’s a storyline: if the Mets don’t win a lot of games, including ones against Cleveland and Minnesota, they’re not going to make the playoffs and people are going to get fired and traded and stuff. The stories write themselves, really.
