Adam Rubin has revealed that he is no longer with the New York Daily News on the Tony Paige show last night, but will not be announcing where he will be going. Like nobody was going to find out. He is heading to ESPN New York.
Congratulations Rubin. Looks like you got your dream job after all. You are one step away from the glitz and glamour of television.
Here’s the transcript thanks to Andrew of The ‘Ropolitans:
Tomorrow is my last day at the Daily News, but I’m still going to be covering the Mets. I don’t think I’m exactly supposed to say what yet, so hopefully people just hold tight and it will come out soon, I guess.
But I really just want to say about the Daily News that I thoroughly enjoyed the last almost 10 years there including seven-plus seasons as the beat writer.
They stood behind me last year when everything happened with Omar. they were tremendous to me then. And just bringing me to New York. I grew up on Long Island but I was in Birmingham, Al. to cover White Sox Double-A baseball.
For them to show the faith to bring me to New York in the first place, I’m always going to be thankful.
Good for Rubin. I have always liked him. He is up there with Mike Lupica. Actually Lupica is higher on my list of fantastic journalists.
Glad Andrew caught this. I decided to take two days off from blogging to enjoy some much needed time for myself.
So now all that is left to figure out is who will be the new beat writer for the Mets. It better not be a bigot. It seems the Daily News is full of them.
