Hanging On Applesauce - Mets take two from Yanks, Igarashi returns, Maine v. Minaya, Murphy rehab

Meet the Mets

The Mets topped Mount CC thanks in no part to Ryota Igarashi's return. But, K-Rod's strikeout of A-Rod made it all moot.

Meanwhile, there's a lot of roster stuff to pass along. Not surprisingly, John Maine and Met management need to get on the same page as Maine insists that he doesn't need to see a doctor

Daniel Murphy racked up 5 hits in St. Lucie in a rehab start. He will play in Buffalo on Tuesday at second base and left field.

Some guy on suggests the Mets trade David Wright.

Is Citi Field attendance down this year because chicks dig the long ball?

Two names emerged over the weekend as trade candidates to bolster the starting rotation. Andy Sonnanstine and Roy Oswalt. It's too bad Rick Reed can't pitch anymore. He sounds like he'd love the chance to rejoin the Mets.

The Rangers would love the chance to acquire Rod Barajas, should the Mets decide to become sellers.

Met farmhand Eric Campbell hit his way up to Binghamton.

Around MLB

Jimmy Rollins landed back on the DL, allowing Raul Valdez a chance to return to MLB. 

Not necessarily content with their roster, Philadelphia is scouting the White Sox bullpen, including JJ Putz.

Nyjer Morgan flipped out after missing a jumping catch and allowed Adam Jones to score an inside-the-parker. 

Meanwhile, future National Bryce Harper hit for the cycle.

Some old-school baseball footage of someone crossing the pitcher's mound and the world didn't end.

Albert Pujols may be getting frustrated with Tony LaRussa's mad scientist approach.

The Brewers have moved Trevor Hoffman out of the closer's spot.

Joe Posnanski writes a 6,000 word look at the pitchers who have struck out 3,000 or more batters in their careers.

And, finally, all you ever wanted to know about the statistics of a no-hitter.
