R.A. Dickey Applesauce - Knuckleballer throws one hitter in Buffalo, Met chemistry, Maine's emotions

Meet the Mets

With an off-day yesterday, the Mets left me with an R.A. Dickey one-hitter as the biggest news to pass along. Although, a 20% discount at Gary, Keith, and Ron's store is a close second.

John Maine's full range of emotions is just one of the reasons his performance this year has been compelling television.

Dave Doyle thinks there's WAY too much being made of the Met chemistry.

Since there's not much other Met news, let's go back to 1986 where we had Ralph Kiner and Tim McCarver broadcasting

Oh, and Metstradamus has a new site, so adjust accordingly.

Around MLB

The Phillies have activated Brad Lidge for this weekend's series, sending down Antonio Bastardo. 

Arizona has put Kris Benson on the DL and has called up Kevin Mulvey.

Two more takes on the Howard extension (I think this is about all I can stand of linking to this story). First, Rob Neyer weighs how much inflation will play a role. Meanwhile, Gregg Doyle calls us fools.

Howie Kendrick managed a walk-off bunt against the Indians. Cleveland's Chris Perez called it bush-league.

It's the 20th anniversary of George Will's Men at Work book which one reviewer says holds up remarkably well. The article also pointed me in the direction of this SNL sketch which is well worth everyone's time.

Outside of MLB

Arizona's new immigration law is drawing intense criticism to all things Arizona, including the Diamondbacks. Lupica says that MLB should move the 2011 All-Star Game as a protest.
