From It Is High...
Who'd a thunk it? The Big Man flies all the way from Rome...and yet he takes time to talk about rising Yankee catcher/DH Jesus Montero, currently batting .359 at Charleston.
"I find it moving to recall that Jesus, as a young boy, heard the words of Scripture and prayed in a place such as this," the Pope said.
Didn't catch the context. I think he was referring to Stan's Sports Bar, across from the House that the Book of Ruth Built. His Highness also mentioned the Yankees.
"Since its beginning, New York has stood as a beacon of religious tolerance and celebration."
Damn straight. We had Mike Kekich and Fritz Peterson, and nobody said a thing. That's tolerance. Way to go, Pope!
My understanding is the Pope left a note on Joe Girardi’s desk telling him not to pitch to Manny Ramirez with first base open. He also thinks Joba should be a starter.
