Listening from the upper deck of luxurious Shea. Good view of the Fair but the Mets are getting blanked by a very sharp Gaylord Perry. Not sure who's starting the nightcap.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm Gaylord Fields:

I once had a conversation with John Fogerty where we chatted at length, to our mutual delight, about this particular version of "Stormy Weather"!

@Rex: Joe Pignatano is fertilizing the vegetable garden today, so those sitting downwind of the Mets bullpen are forewarned.
  2:34pm David in London:

Gaylord, what was Fogerty like in person? I saw him live here in London a couple of years ago, doing the CCR songbook, and it was an absolute awesome show. And thanks for the 1971 and 1972 show links you gave me a couple of weeks back, outstanding shows both.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Gaylord Fields:

@David: This was during a phone interview at my former day job, and we spent more time talking about cool old R&B 45, including the Leaders' greatest moment, than whatever project he was plugging. It was like hanging out with an old friend. Top three people, when it comes to personability, that I ever interviewed.

Downpour and there's trouble with the tarp. Westrum and Doug Harvey really getting into it. Maybe because the mound is a mess and they still have a second game to play.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm spodiodi:

i think i'll order them today, motobro. i've only been out for essential errands across town and back since late fall
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Gaylord Fields:

@David: They aren't always, I don't think I need to tell you! But what's equally rewarding is when ones you don't admire are good guys, like James Taylor. Similar to my experience with Fogerty, we talked more about baseball than his snoozy songs.

  2:55pm David in London:

Gaylord. I once interviewed a musician, how shall we say, who was filed under the ‘now a cult, but never achieved as much in their day as they should have’ and he was such a taciturn and monosyllabic bugger that I’d couldn’t help but think “Hmmm, maybe there’s at least a partial explanation of that lack of success here”....
