Day of Rest Applesauce - Met fans still skeptical, Beltran return not in sight, Ike look-a-like, zombies


Even when the Mets win, they managed to screw with me. Even with my second semester finals coming up next week, it's hard to avoid watching the Met games right now. Must stop the addiction...

Meet the Mets

My opening comment aside, what is it about Met fans that drives us to such pessimism? Well, having your star center fielder's career in jeopardy doesn't help. Awesome bullpen management is another.

I cracked up at the Ike Davis celebrity look-a-likes. Speaking of Ike, here's the list of players whose MLB debut have coincided with a team's 10 game winning streak.

Dillon Gee did not help his chances at getting an MLB start.

The Bobby Bonilla contract story is making another round of the internets, newspapers, and other media outlets. Here's why.

The Mets are the ninth most hated team in MLB. The Indians are first, Yankees are fifth, and the Nationals are sixth.

Around MLB

The Braves' losing streak now stands at eight games.

Crashburn Alley explains why RBIs are a foolish way to justify the Ryan Howard contract. Craig Calcaterra uses the same strategy against Jon Heyman. And, finally, Posnanski's take on Howard.

Ted Berg, Don Mattingly, mustaches, and the Simpsons.

MLB has instituted the DH in all future all-star games.

Joe Maddon got a hoodie from Bill Belichick. Good for him.

Angel Berroa is now trying to make it with the Giants.

I haven't linked on this story yet, but the whole Ned Colletti-Matt Kemp feud is kind of funny.

Outside of MLB

I have a new favorite movie and it hasn't even started filming yet.
