    As opposed to what? Whether the outfield wall should be returned to its original height and length?

    The quality of the Queens school district?

    What?
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    Those Queens public schools do amazing things.

    Queens public schools helped my first generation immigrant parents go from having next to nothing to churning out an oncologist and the chief compliance officer of a very large international hedge fund.

    And we're just a drop in the ocean of success stories from Queens public schools.

    David Wright should consider sending his future kids to one.

    As opposed to years, no trade clauses, and incentives.

    Sandy visited David and gave him the official Mets Monopoly boardgame along with the movie "Moneyball" as nice parting gifts for nine years of service. If he made it ten years he would have gotten a watch but knowing the Mets it'd be an Armitron.

    It could be, but 'top' isn't a term that sits well with his resume here, 'bottom' maybe...

    He's a such a creep. He reminds me of one of the bad guys in Robocop, I think his name was Clarence Boddicker.
