Three-run Homer Single Applesauce - Braves walk off Mets, Carter continues to rake, Reyes alright

Meet the Mets

The Braves beat the Mets in 10 innings yesterday as Jesus Sucre hit a walkoff home run/single. What you should know: Chris Carter continues to make a strong push for Mike Jacobs' spot with another home run; Carter is now named the "Animal"; the Braves' celebration continues to show the double standard applied to the Mets' antics.

It looks like the Jose Reyes deal has died down, but Joe Posnanski raises a bunch of good points about what we've learned.

The A's promptly released Jay Marshall.
