FLIP THIS HOUSE: In N.Y., Mike Vaccaro wrote if there was "supposed to be one source of solace for the Mets, no matter what else befell them, it was going to be their ballpark, Citi Field." But the facility "has been a lightning rod." Fans were "furious that the place was bereft of Mets history," and for a brand-new ballpark, there "seemed to be an awful lot of seats with obstructed views." People have also "screamed about parking logistics." Now comes the news "no homeowner wants to hear: that your brand-new dream house has a leaky basement and a drafty attic" (N.Y. POST, 9/6).
WITH HONORS: In N.Y., Jack Curry noted the Mets yesterday "dedicated the Plum Room in honor of Jim Plummer, a longtime employee of the club." Plum, who died last year at age 57, worked for the Mets for 31 years. Instead of having a Green Room "for visitors to use, the Mets decided to have a Plum Room that would honor Plummer" (NYTIMES.com, 9/8).
