RA Dickey tonight as the Mets try to avoid the humiliation of watching the Phillies clinch in front of them. They might as well watch, give them something to stew about over the winter. That is, if they can muster that much anger. Four games under .500 and that goal of mediocrity is slipping away.
Even when the nuggets are small, the Mets kick them away.
Pretty soon the Hot Stove league will start, with the Mets shivering in the corner.
I received a note yesterday thanking me for the blog and providing a place to hang out and enjoy the Mets’ games.
The truth is I should be thanking you. This has been the hardest year of my life after being laid off, going through a relationship break-up and coping with death of a cherished pet.
I am grateful for your support.
I didn’t have a great year at the blog early, as a I mostly went through the motions and mostly posted the Mets Chat Rooms, which is the only interactive live blogging during the games done by any New York sportswriter. I am proud of that and have it on my resume.
During periods of frustration and depression, the blog was something I could count on for several hours to take me out of my doldrums. I thank you guys for that.
At the urging of several of you, I believe I did more writing the last two months and also added little tidbits that were common when I blogged for the newspaper.
It is my pledge to you to keep up the blog, which includes the playoffs and World Series, and comprehensive features and analysis with the Hot Stove League.
I am also talking with someone about design changes and the addition of a football blog. I write, that’s what I do, and the blog is a vehicle I hope to ride into another full time position.
Again, I am grateful for your support, as it drives me.
