What’s Going on with the Cyclones?

Brooklyn Cyclones logoThe Mets’ Rookie club, the Brooklyn Cyclones, have begun their 2007 season with a bang, and are currently at the top of the standings in the New York-Penn League.

OK, their record is only 1-0, but hey, they’re undefeated!

To keep up with all the happenings of the Cyclones, and other developments in the Mets’ minor league system, visit Cyclones Nation, a new blog focused on the Brooklyn farm club. It’s headed by Flushing University columnist Matt “The Stat” Himelfarb — someone who I disagree with on nearly every subject, but respect immensely nonetheless.

Great to see top-notch blog coverage on the Cyclones. If anyone knows about similarly good blogs on other Mets minor league teams, send me an email. It’s always fun to keep up on the news of the youngsters, where hope springs eternal — especially when the oldsters are eternally squashing hope from the Major League season.

    Thanks for the shout out Joe. And yes, we disagree on everything, aside from Ruben Gotay’s playing time.
