Have a Happy Thanksgiving

In the list of things I am thankful for, the loyalty and kindness of my readers is at the top of the list. Many of you have stayed with me through the years and for that I am most grateful. There are a lot of reasons why I still do the blog and your support is at the top of the list.

I wish you all have a happy and safe Thanksgiving with your families.

My best to all of you.

Thanks,

New Chat Room; where did it go?

Game #150 vs. Braves

To access the New Chat Room, click onto the Mets Chat icon to your left.

The season is gone. We’re winding down to another Metsless October. I know the activity on the blog and chat room is down, but a lot of that has to do with the play of the team.

I am optimistic about the new chat room in the future and thank those of you for your continued support.

The season? Damn, it just seems like yesterday that Daniel Murphy was hurt in spring training, Jose Reyes was down with a thyroid problem and the Mets were about to make the mistake of taking Jenrry Mejia north.

It has been an eventful season, and we all understand this isn’t a good team. It has a better record than last year, but there’s a lot of work to do. And, I hope you’ll stay with me as we talk about it.

New Chat Room; Which way for Pelfrey?

Mike Pelfrey will be making his third start in an effort set a career mark in victories. Pelfrey (13-9, 3.96) had appeared to get back on track from July slump, but has lost his last two starts with an ERA of 10.38.

Game #142 vs. Phillies

“I just see a guy that kind of loses confidence and I see a guy that doesn’t have the presence on the mound,’’ manager Jerry Manuel said.

Manuel called Pelfrey an enigma after he followed a 9-1 by going 4-8.

Pelfrey has shown glimpses of dominance several times during his career, but then regressed to where he loses composure and concentration on the mound.

It’s odd, but despite his erratic performance, Pelfrey can still finish north of 15 victories which is a bench mark number for a starter.

Have a great day everybody.

Best, JD

Some Chat Room news ….

I have enjoyed doing the Chat Room with you guys. It means a lot to me that you’re still with me. I’m the only Mets blogger that continually watches and comments the game with his readers.

The Chat Room has caught the attention of others to where I will expand it, beginning with Monday’s game with the Braves. I didn’t want to do it over the weekend when the viewing is down to begin with.

I have linked up with the Metsmerizedonline.web and their readers will joining us. Part of this agreement also includes being linked up with other team’s websites. It’s a new process, but we’re on the ground floor and I’m optimistic it will bring more readers to the blog.

I will still be in the room to converse with you so that won’t change as I would never sacrifice my readers. I believe this is something that will help the blog and I’m optimistic for your continued support.

I’ll have more details later.

Thanks.-JD
