naming a block of River Ave after Mariano Rivera--might have been just another stunt for the publishing industry. Do publicists plan everything? Does anything ever get done anymore, except to close a sale?
The book's first publicity bombshell--Mo would take Pedroia over Cano at second!--gives aid and comfort to Red Sox fans. Nice going. Just as damagingly, it inflates the tiresome indignation of Yankee fans whose only takeaway from Robbie's career is that he jogs to first. Jog or no jog, I sure missed Robbie last night.
I never thought I'd say this but, unless he's going to pitch, I've seen enough Mo to last me awhile. Wake me when the book tour's over.
