Link Roundup

Adam Rubin has a Mets-Phillies series preview chock full of stats.

Toasty Joe reworked an open letter to Mets fans originally written by a Philly journalist. Joe wrote it last Saturday but it is still relevant … and hilarious.

Another link I’m late to, but is remarkably also relevant, is a video of Chan Ho Park’s first pitch as a Met, posted by Loge 13. Sends chills down my spine.

Phillies Flow points out that the Philly offense is so far averaging 5.87 runs per game — about a run better than they did in 2008.

The Fightin’ Phils posted a video of a not-so-nice “Meet the Mets” remix. Caution: not for all audiences.

Rowland’s Office notices, as I did, that this year’s Braves are not what you expect from a Bobby Cox team, and asks if it’s time for the iconic manager to go.
