Javier from Walton Avenue was trying to keep score this morning.
“What’s everyone having?” he asked the group as they squeezed into a booth at the Crown Diner.
“We’re gonna have to order something,” he said. “Do you think they’re just giving this heat away?”
Everyone was still settling in after the bitter cold drove them from Juan Carlos’s coffee cart, but Jon from Highbridge studied the menu quickly and said:
“I might have eggs. Or maybe pancakes. And I also like the waffles.”
“It sounds like you’re debating the Johan Santana trade,” Javier said. “Do you want Santana or Phil Hughes and Melky? And what about Ian Kennedy?”
“Okay,” Jon shot. “I’ll have the pancakes. And I’ll stick with Hughes and Melky and Kennedy, too.”
