Meet the Mets
The Amazins may have won their first consecutive game in forever, but let's be honest, a good controversy involving Carlos Beltran, Luis Castillo, and Oliver Perez is so much better to talk about. In a controversy tailor-made for race baiting, the three most commonly disliked Mets are getting criticized for skipping a team outing to Walter Reed. I'll give credit to Joe D for being very rational on this one which is more than I can say for Met management. Also, Dave Singer, 21 year military vet, is justifiably appalled at the media coverage of this non-story.
The two Met minor league teams in the playoffs had mixed success last night. Brooklyn walked off winners 9-8 over Jamestown, tying the series at 1. Savannah lost 8-3 in the opening game of its series against Greenville.
Brian Joura thinks that the Mets are making a mistake by keeping Hisanori Takahashi in the closer spot instead of Bobby Parnell. With rumors that Takahashi may leave floating around, I can't help but agree.
And, finally, go buy a McFadden's $50 gift certificate for only $25.
Josh Johnson may be done for the year.
Rockie pitcher Aaron Cook had his leg broken by a line drive. Yikes.
Jim Joyce will be the umpire behind the plate for Armando Galarraga's next start.
And, finally, Derek Jeter is looking to sell his $20 million apartment in Trump Tower.
