“‘Abandon hope, all ye who enter here.’ That’s what I would write if I felt like paying $395 for a commemorative brick outside the Mets’ ballpark. That sentiment from the poet Dante Alighieri’s Inferno is applicable to the new baseball season, normally a time of hope, but not in Queens, not this year and maybe not anytime soon.” [. . .]    –George Vecsey, The New York Times, April 2, 2010
