Meet the Mets

Yesterday was truly Johan Santana's day to take out a bunch of aggression, providing his own run support, ensuring that the bullpen didn't blow it, and basically pwning the Reds.

The problem is that the #2 part of the 1-2 Met pitching punch that was so promising earlier this season is starting to unravel and it might be time to start worrying.

David Wright's June not only won him a place on the All-Star team, it got him another piece of hardware.

Ted Berg is a little worried about why Josh Thole is riding the MLB bench.

And, finally, be sure to clear out Monday night, July 12 at 7 for the chance to see Howard Megdal and Marty Noble AND the Home Run Derby at Two Boots Grand Central.

Around MLB

The New York Times has been on fire lately with their baseball graphics, the latest being a cool breakdown of Stephen Strasburg's mechanics.

The Rockies put up a 9 spot on the Cardinals in the bottom of the 9th to win in walkoff fashion.

Dallas Braden is trying to mend fences with A-Rod.

It's been a good year for the two Indian-born Pirate minor leaguers: trips to the White House, decent starts to their season, and now a movie deal with Sony Pictures.

Bengie Molina apparently had a blog while with the Giants and his last post explains how getting traded really feels.

Bronson Arroyo is like Scott Stapp, except worse.
