A life long Mets fan from birth. Typical Mets lineage, Grandfather was a Dodger fan who converted in 62, Father grew up rooting for Seaver, and I grew up in the heart of the 86 team. I have a respect for traditional statistics and scouting, with a modern understanding of sabermetrics. I prefer to keep score with a pencil and a program over a tablet and app.
