Friday was a humbling day for me. Not only did two more vital parts of the Mets blogosphere provide me with mandates- in the case of Greg Prince’s Faith and Fear in Flushing, 71 percent of the vote, over at Matthew Artus’ Always Amazin’, 70 percent of the vote- but I received the strongest possible endorsement from Greg, one of the most vital voices writing about the Mets today.
Now, Greg compared my victory in an e-mail to me to the kinds enjoyed by Senator Charles Schumer. And while the comparison seems unfair- I don’t look like this at a concert- it does appear the the Mets fans are coalescing around my vision of LOGIC, TRANSPARENCY and PASSION.
That I received my highest vote totals to date during a week when people became more aware of how I intend to run the baseball team we all love is a tribute to the power of a positive vision for the New York Mets. And I am thankful to all of you for your confidence.
May the Mets find their way back into the win column today behind Johan Santana, and I hope to see all of you tomorrow at a brighter day for Citi Field. I mean that metaphorically, of course. Tomorrow, the Mets will be in Arizona.
