Joe McQuaid's Publisher's Notebook: Yanks' pitcher could have used AG's help
A state representative, who had been drinking at a hotel, gets into his car, drives the wrong way out of the parking lot, killing several ducks in the process. People see this and yell at Rep. David Campbell. He is heard expressing concern for his reputation, and disappears. (I'm thinking if the people knew he was the guy pushing the gas tax increase in Concord, his reputation would have been in tatters anyway.)
I suppose it could be worse. If Joe Foster's gang was umpiring the Red Sox game last Wednesday night, Yankee pitcher Michael Pineda would have stayed in the game, pine tar and all.
In fact, Foster's gang may have written Pineda's excuse. He said it was cold out and he was afraid that without having an illegal substance to rub on the ball, he might have lost control and hit someone.
If the IRS gets wind of Pineda, he will probably get a bonus.
