PBBC Presents: Mets vs. Yankees!
Given the preponderance of New York-based writers among our ranks, we started thinking about how best to arrange a Mets-and-Yankees-centric panel discussion. Then it hit us. Why just sit around and talk when we can sit around and compete?
Which is how we ended up here, with Brian Wright, author of The New York Mets All-Time All-Stars squaring off against James Griffin, author of The New York Yankees All-Time All-Stars, answering New York-based baseball questions, with points awarded by our own all-star judges: Tyler Kepner (New York Times national baseball writer, author of K: A History of Baseball in Ten Pitches), Jared Diamond (Wall Street Journal national baseball writer, author of Swing Kings) and Jon Pessah (founding editor of ESPN the Magazine, author of YOGI: A Life Behind the Mask). Jason Turbow (author of They Bled Blue; Dynastic, Bombastic, Fantastic; and The Baseball Codes) hosts.
Let's play some games!
