Mitch Melnick of The Team 990 left his show in the dubious hands today of Stubbs, Boone and Hickey for three hours. Preparing to go down in flames, Stubbs text-messaged Scott Gomez, pretty much begging him to join us for a few minutes.
Gomez did that, and more, sharing some great stories about rookie-night dinners and more. Yes, we threw him pitches to hit out of the park. Don’t look for any hard questions; there were none. We were grateful to have him join us, and we appreciated the fact he replied to my text and found the time.
