Angell: Night Moves

The Mets’ new manager, Mickey Callaway, has so far proved imaginative and unafraid during the first sixteen games of his tenure, encouraging steals and the unexpected extra base in mid-rally. What is needed now to exorcise the bogey-team Nats is for him to emulate Fry’s example. Since baseball’s dimensions are different, he need only pee at the termination of the right- and left-field foul lines, where they meet the wall, and then—in consideration of the heavy in-game traffic around the plate—in the nearest men’s room behind home.

Citi Field can be still populated at midnight after or during most games, but Thursday, May 3rd, brings us a day game against the Braves, Mickey. Plenty of time for you to suddenly remember a forgotten watch or wallet, and rush back, late, to get this done. Do it, Mickey.

Even trivial Angell is better than most people’s best stuff -

Yes, that's what MLB needs, more urinary exorcisms. Only a matter of time until it's part of the 7th inning stretch. Because Mets.
