Whether they’re cutting Mrs. CSTB a hefty check for cybersquatting or manufacturing bobblehead dolls in homage to Joe Benigno, the Wilpon family’s Brookyn Cyclones have long demonstrated the sort of business acumen the rest of us can only aspire to.

Mindful as I am of the ‘Clones’ past accomplishments, I would like to formally recognize the following 2006 additions to their honor role :

1) Brian Bannister Bobblehead Night, September 6. Grant Roberts’ figurine will have to wait another year, apparently.

2) selling the above cap and not dubbing it “The (John) Franco”.
