Monday Applesauce

Apparently, Eddie Kunz has not impressed the Mets. In 2.1 innings. A huge sample size. He has failed. Consider the Mets unimpressed. And now he will be ushered back to the minors once someone -- likely John Maine on Wednesday -- has to come off the disabled list. I won't argue that Kunz has been good, but what the hell is 2.1 innings to judge impressiveness? That he had the gaul to give up his first homerun in three years on *their* watch, I'm guessing.

At MetsGeek, Chris McCown has his own solution to the Mets' bullpen woes. He theorizes that the Mets have too many specialists -- Joe Smith from the right side, Pedro Feliciano and Scott Schoeneweis from the left -- and that one should go, to be replaced by a reliever who can be counted on to retire both lefties and righties. It's a solid premise, so definitely give it a read.

Billy Wagner may rehab at Brooklyn this weekend.

Just a note that today's makeup game against the Pirates will be played -- weather permitting -- at 1pm. The Willets Point Industry and Realty Association (WPIRA) will be protesting the game. This despite the fact that members (or former members) of the WPIRA have already accepted relocation deals from the city's economic development corporation to move their businesses elsewhere.

The awesome baseball scouting site Driveline Mechanics is coming to SB Nation, and should be in the fold within the next week or so. If you don't already read DM definitely check it out, as they do a great job combining traditional scouting with advanced statistics and performance analysis, working to bridge the so-called dichotomy between the subjective and objective views of the game.

I also just received a note in my inbox that WPIX/WB/CW11 has renewed their television contract with the Mets, and will broadcast 25 Mets games per season through 2011. As most of you know, SNY produces the CW11 games exactly as they would air on SNY, though some logos and whatnot are swapped out. This is good news for those folks who can't/won't subscribe to cable or one of its subscription teevee alternatives.
