Beltran's Revenge Applesauce - Mets break out lumber, Harvey still unsigned, no moves on horizon

Meet the Mets

Carlos Beltran had some measure of revenge last night against Adam Wainwright and the Mets thumped the Cardinals 8-2 with bench coach Dave Jauss as the manager

Now that the bats awoke for one game Howard Johnson is a genius.

Having a brief glimpse of Dave Jauss as manager made Ian O'Connor yearn for another Joe Torre era. Ed Ryan is up for a managerial change, just so long as it's not Wally.

Kevin Kearns thinks the Mets might let Matt Harvey walk in order to land a better selection in a deeper 2011 draft. That is a pretty high level of thought for the Met management.

The Mets might sit back for a while and stand pat.

Around MLB

Stephen Strasburg was scratched in his hyped battle against Jason Heyward and the Braves, but the Nats still shut out Atlanta 3-0.

The Marlins have DFA'd Nate Robertson.

Washington GM Mike Rizzo gave Adam Dunn an earful for visiting Bob Uecker during the Nats' game against the Brewers. Killjoy.

The proposed trash trade with the Royals is done for sure as Gil Meche is now out for the season. The injury inspired Joe Posnanski to repost one of his favorite Meche posts.

MLB players have ranked Yadier Molina as by far the toughest catcher to run against.

Los Angeles Dodger and Cincinnati Red hats are the caps most affiliated with gangs across the nation.

And, finally, an injustice from 1961 baseball statistics has been remedied.
