Hold on Bomber fans

The New York Yankees may be the sentimental front runner for many, but apparently they’re not the only Big Apple ball club with an eye on Moosic.

New York Mets representatives are expected to tour Lackawanna County Stadium this afternoon, county press secretary Jenine J. Ikeler said, adding that she had no further information about the visit. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons public relations director Mike Cummings offered a similar report....

There was no news Monday from majority Commissioner Robert C. Cordaro, who has been authorized by the county’s Multi-Purpose Stadium Authority to negotiate on its behalf.Yankees fever seems to have gripped many as the Red Barons seek a successor to the Philadelphia Phillies, but Cordaro and other observers have pegged the Mets as the likely second choice among local fans.

SELL THE BARONS

If this area is smart they'll get the Yankees here. There aren't to many Met fans here.

Hope for the Yankees; unfortunately the press jumped the gun last week when it reported that the Clippers were practically certain to come to SWB.
