Niese Without Curveball Applesauce - Maine stays in Met rotation, Reyes to bat third, Bowman claimed

Meet the Mets

I can't get too upset about Jonathan Niese's disappointing performance. The guy couldn't get a grip on his curveball. I guess we can get excited about the "fight" the team has shown. But, regardless of the team's testicular fortitude, it is still being run by a guy who thinks that Alex Cora is a better pinch-hitter than Fernando Tatis.

Clearly, what the Mets need at this point is a plan, something that they've been lacking for quite some time. Ted Berg gives some suggestions for the short term. Fire Jerry Manuel sees a bit of Groundhog's Day in the future.

John Maine will stay in the Met rotation.

Jose Reyes will probably bat third in this weekend's series against the Cardinals.

Brian Joura makes a plea to give Igarashi more high leverage innings.

The Blue Jays have claimed native son Shawn Bowman off of waivers from the Mets.

Chris Carter hits.

Around MLB

The Marlins are turning to Scott Stapp to pump up their crowd. It makes me feel guilty for liking this Mike Piazza tribute video so much. One thing though about that Piazza video: do you all remember how awful Fran Healy was?

The Phillies have put Jimmy Rollins on the 15-day DL with a right calf tear.

Jim Callis considers Jason Heyward to be the 3rd greatest prospect of the past decade.

Craig Calcaterra schools Trey Hillman in what a high leverage situation is.

Three Lakes High School defeated Phelps High School 45-0.

And, finally, you might be looking for ways to save money after tax day, so here are a bunch of deals in honor of April 15th.
