I had hope to make it through this season before I retired. Sadly, that’s an impossibility now.
I want to thank everyone that’s been a part of this site, especially the two writers currently left (Reese Kaplan and Thomas Brennan) and the guy that helped me start this whole thing (David Rubin). I have no idea what Reese and Thomas plan to do past today. The site will remain open if they chose to write additional posts. I hope they do.
In between, there have been some great writers on this site, but, it’s hard to keep them motivated when you aren’t paying them anything.
I also want to thank the readers who, back in the heydays of the site, averaged 5-6,000 readers a day. You all have been very special to me.
As most of you know, I had a 32-year career in broadcasting before I started this ‘hobby’, It was designed to give the Mets fans a dedicated site for the Mets affiliate teams that no other blog covered. Now, many do, mostly read and written by the younger crown that is into the new stat metrics I never bothered to learn. I though the old fashioned stat line was good enough to attract a large audience. It once was. It isn’t anymore.
This isn’t my first exit from the site, but it will be my last this time. In fact, my plans are to turn off the computer completely.
Oh yeah... one more thing. The draft posts I talked about earlier this week are already written and will post up as promised.
Lastly, I have no regrets in what I have done or what I am doing now. I look forward to my next ‘hobby’… feeding the dog, Netflix, and watering the plants.
Let’s Go Mets.
