Mets Morning News: All tied up with no place to go

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

In which, Beltran doesn't get the opportunity to be blamed, Murph visits White Hart Lane, and Jonny Gomes is magic.

Meet the Mets

Daniel Murphy was on hand for Tottenham's match with Hull City this past weekend. Murph probably had more fun than I, who was drunk by 9 AM watching the Yorkshire derby.

Baseball America put together an unofficial org ranking based on their league Top 20 lists. The Mets come in tied for eleventh with the Blue Jays, though a good chunk of that is based on Zack Wheeler's PCL ranking.

Yesterday at AA

We posted free agent profiles of Suk-Min Yoon and Paul Maholm.

Light a mup (mup mup)

The Red Sox evened the World Series at two games a piece, keyed by a three-run homer from magical playoff unicorn, Jonny Gomes. The Cardinals got the tying run to the plate in the ninth, and it just so happened to be Carlos Beltran (who in case you didn't know, is pretty good in the playoffs), but pinch runner Kolten Wong got picked off first base to end the game. Hmm, can you blame Beltran for the result of an at-bat that never happened? It's like Schrodinger's Beltran.

Will Leitch thinks that Mike Matheny bungled his bullpen in Game 4. Jeff Sullivan agrees.

Greg Prince somehow finds a way to credit Yadier Molina with the Cardinals win on Saturday. Hmmmm, I'll allow it.

While soft Carlos Beltran is playing the series with bruised ribs after crashing into the wall to rob a Grand Slam, gritty Shane Victorino missed Game 4 with lower back tightness. Just sayin'.

And now, your 2013 Mets highlight of the day to get you through the long, cold winter: Pouring one out whilst shedding a single solitary tear, you guys.

And your non-baseball link of the day: "I don't know where I'm going, but I'm going to try for the kingdom, if I can."
