Our Little Experiment

We began version 2 of this blog Monday night with Joyce's piece on Tom Glavine. Since then we've introduced several people who you can expect to see posting here as often as they have something to say about the Mets that they wish to share with you. I've been really pleased with the response -- both the number of people who volunteered to contribute and the quality of their writing.

If you are a writer and plan to contribute anything to this site, please note that I'm going to slow the pace of the posting to about 3 a day. I want people to read what you have to say, and posting too many articles may cause some to get lost in the shuffle. If you haven't already, please touch base with me before you submit something to be published. I don't really anticipate any problems with too much material on an ongoing basis, but since we're so new to this, we'll have to work some kinks out for a while. To both the writers and readers of this site, I sincerely thank you for your support.

On to some Mets news:

Dayn Perry on the Hot Stove Madness
Fox.com's Dayn Perry has some harsh words to say about some of the contracts being handed out this offseason, but surprisingly enough calls the Mets' signing of Moises Alou "The best (and there's only one ...)" signing so far:

In this overheated market - and when you're the deep-pocketed Mets - a one-year, $8.5-million pact is basically free. Alou has poor fielding range these days, and he's gimpy. However, he can still rake (.304 AVG/.371 OBP/.548 SLG over the last three seasons). The Mets badly need better production from the outfield corners, and they also badly need help against left-handed pitching. Alou betters them - by a lot - on both counts. This deal is further evidence that Omar Minaya has developed into one of the smartest GMs in the game today.

I know there are some Mets fans who were very angry that Omar didn't pursue Soriano or Carlos Lee, but those contracts are going to look really bad in a few years when those players are declining and their teams still owe them millions.

Gotham Rumor Mill
GB's Mark Healey presents the latest Rumor Mill, chock full of Zito, Bradford, Glavine and Jason Schmidt.

Marty, Part 2
SNY concludes their excellent 2-part interview with Mets.com's Marty Noble, the Dean of all the Mets beat writers.

About Mike: I was the original writer on this web site, actually its only writer for the first 15 months of existence. Although I am grateful for the excellent contributions of my fellow writers here, I have no plans of stepping back into strictly an editorial role. I started this thing in the first place because I love to write and I love the Mets, and blogging here keeps me somewhat sane. If you haven't had enough already, more bio info can be found here.
