At what point can we say that Fernando Nieve is more than just lightning in a bottle? 5 starts? Also, welcome back Nick Evans. Glad to see that horrid start in triple-A has ended. You're only 3 home runs behind David Wright... Now, let's see if I can keep my perfect record of watching Met games at work. I'm pretty sure they are 0-523 when I have the game on in the background here.
Meet the Mets
Daniel Murphy = John Olerud? That would be nice.
Mets Merized links the Met DL woes to the World Baseball Classic.
Jenrry Mejia had his first bad outing in 4 Double-A starts, giving up 5 earned runs in 5 and 2/3 innings. He still struck out 7 batters. Binghamton looks like a team to watch because, in addition to Mejia, you've got Ike Davis putting it together.
Where is Joe McEwing now? Managing for the White Sox system in Winston-Salem. And pranking his players.
CC Sabathia had a good bullpen session, keeping him in line for the start tomorrow night.

The Yankees knocked Kenshin Kawakami out of the game with a line drive and continued their assault, beating the Braves 8-4. Alex Rodriguez woke up and knocked in 2.
Bobby Cox is old and popular.
I wish the Mets had the Rays' problems.
The offensively challenged White Sox humbled the Dodgers with six homers.
Lookout Landing lets the air out of the YES online streaming news.
