Now we're talking.

Per Andy Martino of the Daily News reports that, according to police sources, "the Mets have increased their security presence monitoring players." The article doesn't indicate how many officers make up the new security detail, just that the Mets had previously employed just a single security guard for both home and road games and that the new guards, however many, will be culled from "a more experienced pool than before".
And the money quote from Martino's report
"The Mets are forced to baby-sit their investment," a police source said. "They can't afford another mess. So they upped the number of chaperones."
Said another source: "Now the big shots in Mets security travel with the players, on the bus, plane and hotel. Watching so they don't get in some stupid season-damning fight."
The idea of the Mets hiring someone to babysit their rogue millionaire athletes naturally led to this.
As inspired by Pat Andriola during the 12th inning of last night/this morning's ballgame.

I found this appropriate given the Gary Cohen BABIP thread yesterday. Saber-nerd debates sweet bro about Ryan Howard. Jeff Francoeur even gets a shout-out. There's some salty language in there, be warned.

Here's the listing of the official Mets Dogs, as discussed in Sunday's postgame thread. Any suggestions can be added to the comments section. Thanks to all of those people who added pictures to this thread...you have been credited appropriately. I tried my best to keep the "K-starting-9" together (ehhh...get it...get it? yeah, terrible joke. I apologize).
Anyway, I'd like to formally welcome you all to:

I, of course, am not a PokéMet master, and as such, I am missing PokéMets in my PokéDex. If anyone has seen other PokéMets, be sure to share them. Likewise, if people have descriptions of PokéMets that my PokéDex does not, by all means, share:
"Lameduck often waddles around aimlessly. It regularly resolves to do things it later forgets to do."
"This PokéMet is known to lick anything within a five-foot vicinity of the pitchers mound. Infielders beware."
