On Thursday, Mets GM Sandy Alderson tweeted that he'll have canine company on his drive to spring training:â†µ
We're driving to St. Lucie because our dog (Buddy) doesn’t like to fly. His complaint: Where I sit, no lights and no stews.â†µ
Today, ESPN Chicago says Cubs GM Jed Hoyer will do that, too:â†µ
"I love my dog too much, apparently," Hoyer said Thursday on "The Carmen, Jurko & Harry Show" on ESPN 1000. "I'm going to take the slow route, take about four days."â†µ
Hoyer's companion will be a golden retriever.
