The Mets Yammer About the Workplace

What if we were privvy to the Mets talking shop? What if we were on their corporate network, or their listserv? What kind of tidbits are floating around on the Mets' private email list?

I think we might find that the contents are more inane than we'd expect. A few media organizations that I've worked for have used new-fangled social-networking-style communication sites (think Facebook, but for single organizations), and most of our conversation is very practical, with the odd ribbing thrown in for good measure. Jammer, our fictional site, will give us a look into the doldrums of daily communication between ballplayers on the Mets, maybe.

And, yes, I know. This is a pretty blatant ripoff of the excellent work by the writers at The Dugout, but allow this as an homage, please. It has its own theme, and hopefully - hopefully - it will make you laugh just the same.
