Sorry, folks. I had intended to get back to more frequent posting this past week, but work problems combined with a bad cold delayed my return.
As we sit here in anticipation of next week's winter meetings in Las Vegas, there are no clear indications which players might be wearing Mets uniforms during Citi Field's inaugural season.
I believe we're going to see both some trades and free agent signings over the next few weeks. I wouldn't be surprised if something fairly big happened either during or shortly after those winter meetings. In any case, I promise we'll be around opining on it all starting Monday.
In the meantime, if you missed my appearance with Matt Pignataro on the Seven Train to Shea internet radio show you can download or listen to it here. I really enjoyed talking to Matt, although I was a little geeked up on coffee after working all weekend when I spoke with him. Still, I managed to get out a bunch of my thoughts on this hot stove season, if you're interested.
I also have a fresh installment of Barry Duchan's terrific series on Mets second baseman that I will publish later tonight. I'll talk to you again Sunday night.
