Meet the Mets
I'll lead off again with the Met GM speculation as the New York Post is reporting that Sandy Alderson has been asked to interview for a second time with New York. No decision, however, is imminent and the Mets still need to interview a candidate who can qualify under MLB's minority quota rules as the Tigers denied them the chance to speak with Al Avila. The Mets also continue to wait for the possible chance to speak with Texas and Queens native Jon Daniels.
Will Leitch writes in New York Magazine that the Mets have finally accepted that they need to start from a clean slate.
Francisco Rodriguez's grievance hearing has been postponed.
The B-Mets had some sort of weird South Park promo video that I really am having trouble describing in words.
Some good stuff to pass along from the Giants-Phillies series, particularly regarding the Philly fans. We've got a guy throwing up while chasing a foul ball. We've got baseball's version of Fred Phelps. And we've got Ryan Howard getting criticized for going to an Eagles game.
Oh yeah, we've also got the very scientific evidence that closers with beards are good.
