Happy New Year

Thanks so much for making 2010 a wonderful year. Even if the Mets stunk (and will continue to stink), it’s still great — in my mind — to have the chance to connect with you and banter about baseball.

I wish all the best for you and your family in 2011, and look forward to interacting with you in the New Year.

Please, please, please enjoy ringing in the New Year SAFELY. And if you are in the NYC area and still unsure of what you’ll be doing to celebrate tonight, be sure to check out MurphGuide for some ideas. In addition to being THE online reference for what’s happening in NYC, the site’s owner is a regular visitor and commenter on MetsToday … so he and his site are obviously cool.

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.

    Happy New Year to you and your family.
    I stumbled onto this just a few weeks ago, and found it both informative and refreshing, including the archives.
    Keep up the good work, the Mets will eventually shake the Hex and be contenders again.

      Thanks Dan, and best to you and yours.

      Glad you found the site and have joined the conversation – I look forward to discussing the Mets with you in 2011 and beyond.

      “Eventually” can be a very long time …. ha ha …

      Thanks again, and enjoy the holiday weekend.

    Happy New Year, Joe.
    Thanks for the plug of MurphGuide.com
    Whether the Mets win or lose in 2011, we will be reading your blog.

    Let’s hope this current era of losing comes to a close soon. With the exception of 1974, all previous losing eras have lasted 3 or more seasons.

    Mets losing seasons:

    Happy New Year to you and yours, Joe! The Mets may stink in 2011, but at least we can have confidence that there’s a plan…hopefully…probably? Ha! There’s definitely a plan. So patient analysis is the call of the day. Thanks for all you do on this site. Keep up the great work and I look forward to reading more in 2011.

    All the best,
