Meanwhile, Yankee fans were cheering the likes of Met icons like Dwight Gooden and David Cone. Oh, and remember how I made this autograph suggestion yesterday?:
You know what would be icing on the cake, though? If the Bombers got Gooden to sign some place that all the fans could see today. Contrary to previous promises, the Mets still haven't done anything with Doc's signature, other than hide it from the fans!It sounds like the Yanks are indeed starting a new autograph tradition. Peter Abraham reports that Yankees clubhouse manager Rob Cucuzza had all the old timers sign the wall near Joe Girardi's office. This year's current players have all autographed the wall as well.
Granted, fans won't get to see the wall unless it's part of the new Yankee Stadium tour, but it's still a heck of a lot better than the Mets covering up Doc Gooden's autograph and treating it like it was graffiti!
Coming later on today - more of my thoughts on Old Timers' Day and the Yankees' sweep. But in the meantime, tell us what you think!
