Greetings from the Frozen North

As tough as winters can be where I live in Connecticut at times, I've often consoled myself that it could be worse. At least the worse that winter has to offer is usually confined to December, January and February.

This year mother nature decided to throw us a curve in the form of a huge October snowstorm, and the resulting ongoing power outages have delayed my intended post-World Series plan to return to blogging about the Mets.

They say the power can remain out here for a week or longer, and right now CL&P, our local electric utility, is unwilling to even commit to estimates as to when power may be restored. So, while I can't say when exactly, I do expect to be posting again as soon as the light come back on.

In the meantime, stay warm and well. Talk to you soon.

If you are just finding this blog again and wondering why I was gone for so long and what the plan is going forward, read this.

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.

Tough to keep up my enthusiasm for this team when you know they won't spend any money and the other also-ran teams in the division will be spending big bucks to improve and already have far more impressive young players than the Mets. What a mess the Wilpons have made of this team. Unfortunately, they seem to have the support of the commissioner in attempting to keep them afloat instead of getting them to sell. Trying to get excited about signing Vinny Rottino or Adam Loewen is laughable. Who do the Mets think they are competing with, the Long Island Ducks ? Don't laugh, at the rate the Mets are going the Ducks could outdraw them one of these years.
