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.
