As an investment advisor, I should know not to jump to conclusions based on small sample sizes and short term performance. When it comes to the market, I DO know that.
However, I would like to take this time to apologize to Mets pitcher Jason Vargas. At the beginning of the season, he was admittedly not great and I was a BIG critic. Since then, once the Mets left him alone and let him do his thing every five days, he’s been the Mets most consistent pitcher.
Even in baseball, sometimes you need to let your “investments” take their lumps before they pay off.
