New Year, New Hopes

by @ 4:15 am. Filed under 2009 Mets, Baseball Equipment, Baseball Glove

After two straight years of collapses, it’s hard to get a little too excited about the Mets.  That is, until they fortified one of their biggest weaknesses from last year.  The pen cost them some games but now with the addition of super closer Francisco Rodriguez and set up man J.J. Putz, I’m feeling pretty good about those small seventh inning leads.  Now the big concern is the rotation.  Derek Lowe, while I’m hardly excited about him, remains elusive even though the Mets sent him a three year deal.  Scott Boras is in town so hopefully by weeks end, we have both Lowe and Olver Perez in the fold for 2009.

Jay F. will be providing most of your day to day updates from here on out and I hope you enjoy his writing as an avid Mets fan.  In the meantime, I’ll be focusing my efforts on a new project.  Similar to the 1986 New York Mets diary I wrote up a few years ago, I’ll now be documenting the other Mets championship back in 1969.  Hope you enjoy it.

Christmas came and went and I got the boy a new baseball glove for Christmas.  I’m pretty leery about buying my baseball equipment online, but I found a fantastic website called Baseball Rampage that had a great selection.  I was even able to talk to someone live who answered all of my questions.
