Sigh Applesauce - Mets watch as Halladay no hits Reds, Terry Ryan as GM prospect, Warthen and Hale undecided

Meet the Mets

Very tough day for us Met fans again yesterday. Roy Halladay throws playoff history's second no-hitter and the Yankees come back against the Twins. Greg Prince argues that we should have just enjoyed Halladay's performance for the amazing achievement that it was. I still wish I could, but it would be a lot easier if the Reds somehow manage to win this series.

There was some actual Met talk too on the first day of the playoffs. The Met GM list looks to be around seven names long, including the Twins' Terry Ryan. Scott Boras, possibly trying to get that job, says that the Mets have the pieces in place for a contending club

A lot still depends on who the next manager will be, at least in terms of the coaching staff. One person who  would seem to make as much sense as Wally Backman is Joe McEwing.

Hisanori Takahashi may become a type-B free agent.

Wilmer Flores' defense and speed are holding him back from becoming a truly great prospect.

Mark Simon put together a pretty accurate recap of the significant "developMets" from the 2010 season. One that hasn't been talked about too much: Jose Reyes stolen base drop.

Ted Berg responds to John Harper's insane notion that the Mets need grit more than they need talent.

And, finally, the Mets are starting to toy with new slogans for 2011.

Around MLB

In case you wanted a numerical picture of how dominant Roy Halladay was last night, have a look here. It was so good that it inspired a lot of alliteration.

Jack Morris was unimpressed with Francisco Liriano last night.

The Cardinals are expected to exercise Albert Pujols' $16 million option for next year.

Saks Fifth Avenue will start carrying the Rays' blazers for $300.

And, finally, how will Derek Jeter's marketability affect his impending free agent contract?
