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.

    LOL! SNL is pretty bad these days. I’m glad I can’t stay up that late to watch it. However, that skit was funny! Glad you shared.
