It isn't too late for you to join the modern world. You can open your minds and learn. Reach out to me or to millions of other dads who can set you straight. In 2014, that would be the manly thing to do.

It would be impossible to have displayed more of a tin ear than Francesa did with his repeated calls for the good old days when men's role was to hand out cigars and get back to the office.

The Mets' farm system is relatively weak in terms of natural second basemen (i.e. Daniel Muno and Branden Kaupe), but the front office has prudently pushed offense-first Wilmer Flores to learn the position at Triple-A this season.
