Well, it is clearer than ever that Mets fans are speaking with one voice: it is time to elect me the next General Manager of the New York Mets. Over at Pick Me Up Some Mets, I received 86 percent of the vote. That is at the level of a Democrat in Washington D.C., though I can promise you that no Marion Barry-style video will ever surface of me.
With the trade deadline behind us, I have written, in broad strokes, an op-ed response over at ESPN.com about what the Mets need to do next. Anyone following my campaign for LOGIC, TRANSPARENCY and PASSION knows these are simply part of a culture change in how the team is operated; nevertheless, they are the players and problems I’d be focused on should I get the chance to be the next General Manager this fall.
The primary campaign continues, with votes happening NOW at The Happy Recap and Mets Police:
Don’t think for a second that your participation in this vital campaign for change is going unnoticed by the Mets. They are aware of both our demands and the book I am writing, set for release next spring by Bloomsbury, that will either detail their ability to improve the ballclub by incorporating our ideas, or failing to do so.
We are closer than ever to making certain that the next generation of Mets fans will have more happy recaps than any in history. And I am honored to lead such a crusade on behalf of everyone who bleeds orange and blue.
