Should we do gamethreads for Mets' minor league affiliate games televised on SNY? (Choose one.)

  1. Definitely. This would be a great development for Amazin' Avenue, and will help our readers to better familiarize themselves with our farm system and its players, by engaging in threads with others.
  2. Maybe. It's definitely worth a shot, and maybe this idea could catch on with the readers here. It could be a fun way to get to know the farm system better by engaging in commentary about the games.
  3. Doubtful. While the idea might sound good in theory, it just doesn't have the interest needed to make for a worthwhile gamethread. I'll just follow the minor league reports in the morning posted on the front page, instead.
  4. Who cares!? I'll just stick to the regular Mets gamethreads, and let the minors take care of itself. All that matters is that the prospects produce, and that they produce in the bigs once they get here.
  5. Other. (list your stance on this now, not 3 days from now.)
