Hot Stove Edition

This weekend MetsToday will be completely reformatted for the Hot Stove Season. That means the site will look a LOT different from the last time you visited — and, you may see some strange things this weekend while I tweak the design.

Contrary to popular opinion, this “change” was not inspired by the 2008 Presidential Election. Rather, the plan is to provide you more comprehensive offseason news, in a way that is easy to navigate.

Opinion pieces featuring my trademark cynicism and snarky commentary will continue to be the focus, as will your participation. However, there will be more clicking and less scrolling as I attempt to provide an online “scoreboard” of hot stove happenings.

As always, your feedback is greatly appreciated. Please post your comments or send me an email.

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.

    Joe, I absolutely LOVE the redesign.

    If I had time on my hands, this is what my site would look like. Well done.

    Thanks A! I appreciate the kind words. Hopefully the rest of the loyalists feel the same way.

    Concentrate on your studies!

    It’ll take some getting used to, but it already seems much more user friendly. Is this redesign foreshadowing of what is to come for the Mets this offseason?

    Yes, the revamp is inspired by all the talk of the Mets’ anticipated overhaul. No stone will be unturned in the effort to provide you the best Mets news and insight!
