Precautionary Pagan Applesauce - Mets careful with center fielder, likely headed to trial with Picard, DePodesta online


Meet the Mets

Center fielder Angel Pagan also gave the team a little bit of a scare with some back soreness, but Pagan is expected to be fully healthy by the season's open.

Apparently, a day can't go by without some news about the Wilpons' legal situation. All signs are pointing to a trial between the Wilpons and the Madoff victims and the victims' lawyers are playing some real hard ball leading up to it.
