Mets Morning News: Stupid Cardinals keep winning

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

In which, the stupid Cardinals keep winning, Shin-Soo Choo might not be all he's cracked up to be, and Shane Victorino gets hit by baseballs dot gif.

Meet the Mets

Matt Meyers argues that Shin-Soo Choo is not the ideal offseason signing for the Mets. I actually agree with a lot of this.

Greg Prince looks back at the postseason series that ruined my childhood.

Amazin' Avenue gets a shout out in Jonah Keri's Grantland Baseball Glossary. I'm just happy that TRAID has finally made the big time.

Yesterday at AA

We said farewell to the chop shops around Citi Field and hello to another fifteen years of Wilpon-owned baseball probably.

Chris McShane moved on to Ruben Tejada in his tender or non-tender series.

And I wrote about 2013 8th round pick, Champ Stuart, who I really like by the way.

Light a mup (mup mup)

The damned Cardinals did it again, coming back from 2-1 down to win their series against the plucky Pirates. Adam Wainwright was dominant, while Carlos Beltran wet 0-4 to post a meager .944 OPS for the series. TRAID!

Rob Neyer considers the controversial double play call from last nights game.

The A's and Tigers take the field tonight for their deciding fifth game. It will be a rematch of the Game 2 instant classic, as Sonny Gray faces off with Justin Verlander.

Around MLB

Kevin Towers went on the radio and said the Diamondbacks weren't gritty enough basically.

And Jeff Sullivan takes a closer look at Shane Victorino getting hit by baseballs, which I am okay with.
