My time with MMO began in July of 2009 when I wrote a Fan Post defending Omar Minaya (before it was cool to do that.)I grew up a Mets fan with the mid 1980's teams. My favorite Met of all-time is (and was) Wally Backman.When it comes to sabermetrics versus old school thinking, I like to think I meet in the middle. I believe thinking of new ways to get answers is helpful, especially when the same way has not produced results. However, I think over-thinking certain situations can get you into trouble.I'm excited for the new regime, because I believe they have pieces in place to focus on several aspects of the Mets organization. I've waited this long for a World Series, waiting a few more years for another chance isn't going to kill me.
