Co-Host & Staff Writer
John Coppinger has loved baseball since he went to nine Mets games in 1979. They lost all nine. But after the Mets swept the Cardinals on the last weekend of the '79 season to avoid 100 losses, his optimism was off the charts. It led him to an internship with "This Week in Baseball" and a 32-year career in sports television. But he is best known in the online world as "Metstradamus," his nom de plume since 2005. It was then that he started "The Musings and Prophecies of Metstradamus," which was recognized as Metsblog's "best new blog" in 2006. That made Coppinger an award winner along with being really full of himself. He thinks Yoenis Cespedes is under appreciated and is still upset that Darren O'Day was lost on waivers to the Texas Rangers in 2009.
