Oldies Radio Enthusiasts See Mets Blow Out The Padres 9-0

The photo above is the original home run apple from Shea Stadium which is now placed outside Citifield.  In today's game the home run apple went up 3 times after blasts by Scott Hairston, Vinny Rottino (his first major league homer) and Mike Nickeas (grand slam).  The last few years have been tough for the Amazins so it was nice to see a blowout.  Johann Santana pitched a shut out given the bull pen a well deserved rest.

Game Summary

Alan Berman organized this as a gathering of oldies radio enthusiasts.  I am getting a little tired of the M&G moniker, so we'll save it for the annual gathering in November at Ben's Deli.  Frank DeRosa and Mary Shaw were there.  Late in the game we were surprised by a visit by Jerry Gillespie.
