Over the past three years, MetsGeek has provided readers with top-notch analysis and writing about the New York Mets. I regret to inform you that those days have passed. Writing about the team just became too much for our staff to take. The Mets’ play has been so disappointing in 2008, that we just couldn’t bring ourselves to write another word on this team. Something needed to change.
Eric called a meeting at the MetsGeek offices. We threw some ideas around to liven the site up again, but, in the end, the staff unanimously agreed to just drop the Mets gimmick. We’re tired of this team, and we felt it was time to attach ourselves to a new beacon of light and hope: the Tampa Bay Rays.
Why the Rays? As it turns out, we have a lot in common. We both needed to clean the slate with a new identity this season. Well, half a slate; the Rays only removed half their nickname, and, if you look at the banners above, you’ll notice we’ve chosen to do the same. Mr. Met’s smiling visage shall continue to shine down upon our daily content. After all, I’m not even sure if the Rays have a mascot, and Mr. Met remains the best, even when the team doesn’t.
So I’d like to welcome everyone to RaysGeek.com, home of the best Rays analysis on the internets. We pray that you, our readers, shall remain faithful to the site and not the team. Unlike the Mets, we’ll never let you down. Because if the Rays’ season takes a turn for the worse, you can bet that we’ll be ready to jump ship again.
And in the meantime: let’s go Rays!
Eric and Alex
