Let me first off apologize for taking almost a year off. I won’t get into details as to why that happened, but the long and short of it is that maintaining a blog as a hobby and not a full-time job isn’t easy. However, I am back for the 2007 season and hoping that I (and the Mets) can last just a little bit longer than last year. Last season was so inspiring and the off-season so brutally long that Sunday’s return of the regular season found me as ready for baseball as I have ever been. The game itself certainly left me pumped for 161 more in the regular season. Vintage Glavine on the mound combined with nine hits off of one of baseball’s best starters, capped off with two great defensive plays that saved at least three runs was a recipe so perfect it made yesterday’s off day especially unpleasant. But the Mets will return this evening to play another important game (of course I consider all games against teams like the Cardinals important) with Orlando Hernandez out to prove that despite his age and health concerns he can still be a valuable #2 starter.
Well I’m glad to have gotten the first post since last May out of the way and I look forward to many more.
