First Base Void Applesauce - Mets look to Jacobs, hit 3 home runs, Reyes out for Opener


Doing a link dump on April Fools' Day is awfully hard. Who knew that so many trades go down on April 1?

Meet the Mets

Somehow, I did not post any links to yesterday's news about Daniel Murphy missing 2-6 weeks with a strained knee. I apologize for that oversight. Now that it's happened, let's talk about who is going to be the Met first baseman. Can Ike Davis take the spot? Ted Berg turned his spotlight to first base, but still can't work up the anger about Mike Jacobs being the logical replacement.

On the field, the Mets hit three home runs off of Josh Johnson (courtesy of Wright, Bay, and Carter). 

Jose Reyes is likely to miss Opening Day, upsetting all the unnamed Mets.

Around MLB

Josh Fogg wasn't on the market too long, landing in Philadelphia. 

In case you care about Curt Schilling's opinion, he thinks that the Phillies made a mistake in trading away Cliff Lee.

Beyond the Box Score takes a look at "it".

The Rays have added some younger musicians to their concert schedule, such as Adam Lambert.

And, in the weirdest story so far of the Spring, Denard Span hit his own mother with a foul ball.
