Mike Newman deviated from his Sally League stomping grounds and caught a K-Mets game earlier this month. He got some good video and came away with thoughts on Gavin Cecchini, Branden Kaupe and Akeel Morris.
FanGraphs recently released its television broadcaster rankings, which were based on input from fans. Radio broadcaster rankings are next, and today the Mets team is up for judgment.

Eno Sarris of Amazin' Avenue and FanGraphs fame has organized a meetup in New York City this Sunday at Amity Hall on West 3rd St. Several AA'ers are expected to be in attendance, including Eric Simon, Chris McShane, Jeff Paternostro and myself. The festivities start around 1:00 PM but come any time after that. There is no covercharge.
Listen to me ramble my way through a discussion with FanGraphs MC Carson Cistulli. Topics include the new Mets front office, the Moneyball Book Club and a self-indulgent recap of my baseball fandom. Thank you to Carson for having a podcast n00b like myself on the show, it was fun.
