What I’ll Miss About Shea

In case you missed it, tune in to Mets Weekly on SNY on Sunday at 5:30 PM or Monday at 6:30 PM. On the show you’ll get to see Pedro Feliciano teach salsa dancing to Jocelyn Pierce, a profile on Fernando Martinez, and lots of teary-eyed memories of Shea Stadium — including those of yours truly. That’s right … at the end of the show is a “bloggers roundtable” guided by Ted “Groucho” Berg of SNY and including Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog, Anthony DeRosa of HotFoot, Coop of MySummerFamily, and me.

Despite my less-than-endearing comments (I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t watched yet) in this first “bloggers roundtable” segment, I’ll be appearing from time to time during the season on future episodes of Mets Weekly, along with the aforementioned Mets bloggers. But don’t worry, this gig isn’t going to launch me onto ESPN nor Hollywood anytime soon, so MetsToday will continue on.

Joe Janish began MetsToday in 2005 to provide the unique perspective of a high-level player and coach -- he earned NCAA D-1 All-American honors as a catcher and coached several players who went on to play pro ball. As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.
