Meet the Mets
Brian Costa thinks that Terry Collins deserves better than this Mets team. Him and the rest of us probably, but don't expect the calls for Wally Backman from #MetsTwitter to die down anytime soon.
Matt Harvey's postgame interviews are still awesome at least.
I know The 7 Line isn't as popular around these parts as others, but I still found this piece on the history of the site quite interesting. Full disclosure: I own a couple of his R.A. Dickey shirts, because I own all the R.A. Dickey shirts.
And Carson Cistulli has two Mets prospects on his Fringe Five this week. For more on the Fringe Five, as well as Wilmer Flores and Rafael Montero, check out my interview with Carson from last week's Amazin' Avenue Audio.
Yesterday at AA
Rob Castellano wondered if Wilmer Flores is a suitable replacement for the much-maligned Ike Davis at first base.
And This Date in Mets History celebrated Mike Piazza Eve, which of course mean today is Mike Piazza Day! Huzzah!
Around the NL East
Bryce Harper probably hits a bit better than Rafael Soriano's four-year-old. Just sayin'.
Here's all of Wednesday's action in one handy scoreboard. Of particular note, Andre Ethier sat again for the Dodgers, so let the Ethier-to-the-Mets rumors begin! And may God have mercy on all our souls.
And finally, everyone is having a bad year in Houston, even the vendors.
