A Note about Comments

It's become a common practice these days for spammers to attach comments to blog posts that are merely attempts to hijack some free advertising. The problem has become so prevalent that these comments, if completely unchecked, would quickly overwhelm most legitimate comments on a blog. I've been using Movable Type's...

Back In High School

Back in high school there were always a few people who liked to instigate fights. They would go up to a guy and ask, "Did you hear what Jimmy is saying about you?" He'd say something back, which of course would get back to the other guy, and eventually...

Job Insecurity

In his Daily Scoop column today at SI.com, Jon Heyman doesn't travel very far out on a limb when he pronounces Mets manager Jerry Manuel as "on the hot seat." I'm going to preface what I say next by noting that I am not a "quick trigger" guy when it...

Looking Back, Looking Ahead (Part 2)

[Note: This is the conclusion of a 2-part article. For Part 1 of this article, please click here.] For all appearances, the Mets operated this past winter without a real plan. Despite claiming that they were putting together a team that would contend for the division title in 2010,...

A Quick Note about Link Exchanges, E-Mail, Etc.

Just some quick housekeeping here. One big mistake I kept making last year when I tried to pick up blogging again was to try to catch up on all of the things I felt that I should have been doing while I was gone. This time around I have...

The Third Man?

I'm still trying to finish Part 2 of my Looking Back, Looking Ahead post. Hopefully I will have it up Sunday night, possibly Monday. I've been spending a lot of time job hunting this week and that has cut into writing time. In the meantime, I've had a few...

Looking Back, Looking Ahead (Part 1)

Going into this winter I thought that the Mets had too many question marks to consider themselves a player or two away from being legit contenders, particularly with the Phillies and Braves looking solid. There were some pundits and fans who thought the Mets could obtain a pitcher and...

About a Bay

I received an email earlier this week from a blogger from StalkingStevePhillips.com who thought I might be interested in his take on Jayson Bay and Johnny Damon. Actually, most of the piece was on Damon, with the following on Bay towards the end: Mr. Bay, at your press conference,...

35 Subscribers Just Can't Be Wrong

In November I wrote a piece about the Dolan's decision to charge $5 per week to access Newsday's website for anyone who wasn't a print subscriber or a customer of the Cablevision's Optimum Online cable internet (also owned by the Dolans). I knew I wasn't going to be paying $260...

The Benefit of the Doubt

Sorry it took so long to get this first one posted. I haven't written much for the past few months and the words still aren't quite flowing freely. I promise we'll get to some talk about the Mets off-season soon, but for my first official baseball posting since my return...

This Blogging Life

The last thing I posted in this space was a piece about Newsday's new pricing model back in mid-November. Since then, I've probably started a dozen or so posts running the gamut from the Bay signing to reaction to Mark McGwire's shocking "admission" that he did, indeed, use steroids. However,...
