With the 2009 version of interleague play upon us, we have decided that we ought to pay attention to that other team in New York.
It is with great pleasure that we introduce Ian as our guest Mets blogger.
Ian, like us, is a Connecticut native, but he spurned UConn for Boston College. Still, we can forgive him for that.
He is a journalist with more than 15 years experience working at newspapers in Connecticut and New York.
He also is as knowledgeable a Mets fan as there is. He'd probably be able to tell you Bobby Valentine's hat size if you asked.
We look forward to Ian's insights and analysis as he tries to make a strong argument as to why his NL team will be able to keep pace with the big boys from the AL East.
Welcome aboard, Ian.
