Meeting Quotas Applesauce - Mets bring in Dana Brown, Gooden pleads NG, K-Rod's 2011 role


Meet the Mets

It appears as though the Mets have found their man to fill MLB's interview quota, bringing in Omar Minaya "disciple" Dana Brown from Toronto. While the Mets have explicitly ruled out John Ricco for the job, Joe Janish still doesn't see why he's getting so much praise and attention. No matter what happens, JD from Section 518 is skeptical so long as Fred and Jeff are writing the checks.

Howard Megdal brainstorms on potential uses (actual) for Francisco Rodriguez next year. His favorite: the Goose Gossage type closer.

Ted Berg asks why no love for Tim Bogar as a managerial candidate.

Doc Gooden plead not guilty to child endangerment following his May arrest for DUI with his son in the car.

Wilmer Flores is traveling to New York and then will be sent to St. Lucie for rehab following his calf injury.

Around MLB

Cliff Lee continued his dominance against the Yankees and against any and all postseason opposition last night. The Rangers managed to strike out 15 Yankees. The game even featured a good call by first base umpire Angel Hernandez. The Yankees now turn to a loose A.J. Burnett to start game 4. 

So much for all that speculation regarding an unhappy Tony La Russa as the Cardinal manager re-upped with his team for one more year.

The Nationals think they have a chance at Cliff Lee or Zack Greinke.

John Sickels asks a tough question: would you rather have an excellent in-game manager or an excellent motivating manager?
