And everyone at is very happy about it.

Also, we learned something extraordinary from the Chronicle this morning:

— Former A’s infielder Frank Menechino is working as a member of the media and covered the players’ news conferences for “You know me,” Menechino said. “I’m short, but I’m not short for words.”

Big Bank Frank, Mr Money Menechino, is one of our most admired players ever.  Five foot eight, two hundred pounds, Frankie has a wicked knuckleball and 36 lifetime homeruns.  He truly is Staten Island’s finest.
