Mets Morning News: Time For Ralph Kiner's 90th Birthday Bash Extravaganza Palooza!

Happy birthday, Ralph! - Al Bello

Your Saturday morning dose of Mets and MLB news, notes and links!

Meet the Mets

Joel Sherman reports in the Post this morning that after polling 10 different executives from around the league, they all think David Wright will re-sign with the club. Sherman speculates that a deal in the seven year, $127 million range should get it done (and coupled with his current team option, that'd make the total contract worth 8 years at $143 million).

Mets' legend Ralph Kiner celebrates his 90th birthday today! Happy birthday, Ralph! Also celebrating birthdays are Jon Niese (26) and Ruben Tejada (23). Also, I believe today is the 26th anniversary of some World Series clinching victory or something.

Toby Hyde looks at some bad ideas in regards to where Ike Davis should play.

Yesterday At AA

Thomas Wachtel has the latest news on David Wright and R.A. Dickey.

On October 26th, the Yankees were big jerks and beat the Mets in the 2000 World Series.

Apparently, you need a badge to be a Mets' fan, as Thomas Wachtel proves with yesterday's eBay Superlative.

Around the Playoffs

Game three of the World Series is set for tonight at 8:00 PM, as the Giants and Tigers head to Detroit. Ryan Vogelsong starts for the Tigers and he'll face off against Anibal Sanchez.

A Tigers' fan is offering his house in exchange for World Series tickets. No, seriously.
