Meet the Mets
The Mets AFL affiliate Peoria Javelinas kick off their season today. Here is the Mets contingent. Erik Turgeon is the replacement for Reese Havens. Yeah...
Howard Megdal takes a look at the fourth tier free agents this year. Blastings Thrilledge reunion anyone? Anyone?
Notgraphs' Carson Cistulli makes the obvious joke. Or no joke at all. It's unclear.
A bunch of statheads who have never played the game are using some log5 thing (is that the computer that wrote Moneyball?) to project the World Series winner.
If they actually came out of the basement and watched some baseball, they would have seen a 'gutsy' performance by gutsy Justin Verlander. Guts, he has them. He is also a 'grinder'. Delmon Young broke a 4-4 tie with a 'clutch' home run. Yes, folks, it's the playoffs. Of course, Joe Posnanski has a sane, well-crafted take on all of this. I hate him so much sometimes.
Over in Tampa, Mike Napoli hit a go-ahead home run off David Price, and the Rangers pen held on for a 4-3 victory. They are now up 2-1 in the series and once again Tampa has their backs up against the wall.
Terry Francona just wants you to know that he will manage next year if asked nicely. At least according to an anonymous source which is totally not Terry Francona.
