Greetings all. I have missed talking with you the past two weeks. I’ve received lots of well wishes since The Journal News dumped me. They never gave me a reason, at least nothing other than the vague explanation of economics. They are still making money, but I guess their profit margin isn’t as big as they hoped.
I received several requests to keep the blog running. The blog became a passion and I developed an attachment to many of my readers and felt obligated to continue. I made commitment to you and will stick by it. I thank you for your interest and will work hard to pick up where I left off. I also want to thank Joe McDonald for getting me up and running.
I won’t have the resources I had at the paper, but I am a lifetime member of the Baseball Writers Association of America, so I still have access to the ballpark, and and a result, the players.
As I search for a new job I will keep the blog running, and hopefully I will land something in baseball and close to Mets.
I will keep upgrading the blog, but if there’s anything you’d like so see, let me know and as always I will try to deliver.
If you want to reach me off-line, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I am looking forward to hearing from you, and I an anxious to talk Mets with you again.
