With Interleague Upon Us, A Fresh Voice

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.

Really? We're going to forgive him for going to BC?? :)

Yes. We're bigger men than that. Besides, it's not Ian's fault BC couldn't hack it in the Big East!

I won't apologize for being a BC guy, but I remember being in the dining hall at 6 p.m. some nights and a bunch of deciding to go to a Sox game. You could still walk up to the windows at Fenway and get a good ticket back then.
