While You Were Out: The Best of Amazin' Avenue, August 26-September 1

Jon Rauch: not the worst

The Mets have been not-awful this week, for the most part (some might even say "good"), so this week's While You Were Out should be much happier and more fun than some of the others I've done. Again, we'll take a look at the best and most interesting things that popped up on Amazin' Avenue in the past week, including the top FanShot and FanPost.

FanPost of the Week: Oh Canada: Some Observations on Jason Bay, by KeithsMoustache

FanShot of the Week: On David Wright's Swing, by Ogre39666. Any time you can get actual analysis in a FanShot, you deserve plaudits.
