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.
Patrick Flood makes an excellent point about Jenrry Mejia's inevitable call-up: it's purely so that Manuel and Minaya can keep their jobs.
Do you remember Jeff Duncan? That brings back some really bad memories.
The A's promptly released Jay Marshall.
Another guy named Jerry, Jerry Brewer says that Jack Zduriencik's strength is in knowing people.
More controversy: Torii Hunter calls Black Latinos "impostors."
Oh man, do you think the Twins would want newly minted reliever Jenrry Mejia for Joe Mauer? They'd be idiotic if they did.
