Lauren from Islip called up and boy did Mike enjoy her call. She is a first time caller, enjoys Mets games and was concerned about John Maine. She wanted to know about how the Mets are going to use him and when he should warm up either on Saturday or save him for the Pedro outing. Mike was charmed. I am not sure if it was just that this was a female voice, an island of estrogen in a testosterone infested ocean, but whatever it was, Mike was loving Lauren and uttered a phrase i don't believe i have ever heard leave his vocal chords.
"You asked excellent questions.."
That was followed by "you made a good point about the Pedro game."
Maybe, all we have to do is call in and say that we are Lauren from Islip and Mikey will give us some respect and say that we have asked excellent questions
