18 Runs Applesauce - Mets offense wakes up in finale, Omar's nightmare flight, meh Mejia

New, 48 comments

Meet the Mets

The Buffalo Bisons Mets might have dropped two out of three at Wrigley over the weekend, but hey they scored 18 runs in one game, in a way that was as unique as you would expect when this Met team scores 18 runs

Unfortunately, however, Jenrry Mejia did not exactly distinguish himself in his starting pitching debut on Staurday. The starting rotation is still up in the air as Johan Santana will miss his next start, giving Dillon Gee a shot.

Just in case you have forgotten, the Mets have not had a good right fielder for a while. Why not give Lucas Duda a shot to fix that?

Deadspin reported that Omar Minaya got heckled during his flight to Chicago, while flying coach. This may be the best evidence yet that Minaya is on the outs.

Ed Hearn will be honored September 10th at Citi Field.

And, finally, Xerox and Mr. Met make sweet music together.
