Meet the Mets
The Mets won a game and guaranteed themselves at least a split with Houston, but they will probably have to do so without a vomiting David Wright. During the game, Ruben Tejada managed to avoid Jason Phillips status.
As expected, the MLBPA has fired back at the Mets for the K-Rod contract situation. Ted Berg serves up some K-Rod jokes if you need to be cheered up some.
The Mets plan to carry 3 catchers on the roster with Rod Barajas coming back. If you're keeping score that's 3 catchers and one bullpen pitcher who doesn't pitch. It's just another one of a hundred reasons that the Mets continue to make us miserable. With the Mets being as irrelevant as ever, what is a Met blog to do?
Congratulations to Dillon Gee who has now set the Buffalo Bison record for strikeouts in a season. Can he stop pitching in AAA now?
I should probably subscribe to Fire Wayne Hagin.
Having never actually wanted Aramis Ramirez, the Braves got the Cubs' other good player, Derrek Lee for 3 pitching prospects.
Fresh off retirement, Jose Canseco hit a home run.
Ramon Ortiz, unable to get a shot at the majors with the Mets, somehow thinks he'll be able to make it with Tampa.
And, finally, a new report suggests that Lou Gehrig may have not had Lou Gehrig's disease.
