There isn’t much of a baseball connection between the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, the New York Marathon controversy from late last week and over the weekend and baseball, but New York Post baseball writer Ken Davidoff has a good column up on it today.
Scroll down past his stuff about his free agent predictions and you’ll see where he talks about how he had been training for the New York Marathon for almost a year. He talks about the weirdness and uncertainty of last week when, despite there being no good reason on the planet to run the marathon and a million good ones not to, the New York Road Runners and the city insisted that the thing still go on, only to finally bow to common sense on Friday afternoon (and then said flat out dumbass things in the wake of it over the weekend).
After that, Davidoff makes a good analogy to Tom Glavine’s last performance in a Mets uniform that, in moments when baseball fans lose perspective, is often referred to as a disaster. Go check it out and remember it the next time someone uses extreme terms to talk about things that happen on a baseball diamond.
