The 2 train has the best seats for the biggest fans.
“The Yankee big shots are on their way to Tampa,” someone says.
“This train doesn’t go that far,” says Javier from Walton Avenue. “We have to sit and wait for what comes next.”
He remains calm.
“We’re headed in the right direction,” Javier says. “They started making good decisions a couple of years ago and I expect more this week.”
“They’re not going to do anything to derail what’s been started with Hughes and Joba and Melky and Robbie,” he continues. “This was a very good team this year and next year will be even better if they keep it rolling.”
Javier settles back at the train rumbles south.
“I feel good about everything so far.”
