Mayor de Blasio met with Red Sox officials at Goldman Sachs

According to the latest official information shared by Red Sox management, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio met them for lunch at one of the offices of Goldman Sachs this Wednesday.

The meeting probably isn’t much of surprise for all who know that de Blasio is a real fan of Red Sox, grew up in Cambridge, and would never cancel a meeting with his favorite team. Anyway, the Red Sox have been in New York to play a series of three games with the Yankees.

However, some of the popular magazines, like the New York Post, for example, saw this meeting as somewhat secret. Their point of view was understandable because this meeting was not on the official agenda of the Mayor’s office. And he did not share this information with the public.

The spokeswoman of the Red Sox team, Zineb Curran, said that general manager Dave Dombrowski and manager Alex Cora met with de Blasio recently for lunch. However, she dismisses any suspicious theories about this meeting.

Curran says they simply wanted to talk about the Red Sox Foundation’s mission and discuss the official policy of Red Sox management. She says it was not a secret meeting at all.

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Mayor, Eric Phillips, also agreed that there was nothing secret in the meeting. He joked that no one wore fake mustaches or noses to get past the press.
