Meet the Mets
Last night's was a game to stay up late for. As the Gary Cohen-labeled Goose-Egg Sweep fittingly closed out Awesomestock, it also reinvigorated a great deal of us. It also allowed us to watch the Philly blogs gnash their teeth a little bit.
The Mets are off to an all-time pace in terms of their home and away splits. Could it be that "Citi Ball" doesn't really translate to other parks?
On the injury front: Carlos Beltran's return won't be until after the All-Star break at the earliest and Jon Niese will make a rehab start in Port St. Lucie.
Mike Hessman hit two homers, including a walkoff shot, to lead Buffalo over Toledo.
Edgardo Alfonzo wants to come back. Maybe someone can take Michael Ganci's writing job and explain to him why it's not a good idea. If you don't feel like infiltrating, you can just point him to this article.
I don't know if these jerseys top Omir Santos' t-shirt, but they're close.
Ted Berg talked to future Met GM Nelson Figueroa.
Chipper Jones says he is not totally sold on playing in 2011.
Jason Heyward is a baseball player while Jeff "The Natural" Francoeur probably should have stuck to football.
In the least shocking story of the day, Pat Burrell is talking with the Giants about a roster spot.
Yuniesky Betancourt is eerily similar to his new manager Ned Yost.
I think we can all agree that we're seeing and hearing a little too much from Joe West.
Granted, this catch is from a Cubs fan, but still.
Sam the Eagle + American Woman + Waldorf & Stadler = happiness.
