On his Delta Airlines blog, Jeff Francoeur assures his fans that his team may have changed, but not his airline (whew! that was a close one!)

Will Sommer did a Q&A with former Met Art Shamskey, who talks about his latest book and gives 1969 as a reason why the 2009 season isn’t yet over for the Mets.

Will Leitch describes Tony Bernazard as a scapegoat, and opines, “The Mets are uglier in the front office than they are on the field. That’s terrifying.”

Lou Cappetta identifies the shortstop that most affects the Mets’ chances for the postseason — and it’s NOT Jose Reyes.

Joe Janish began MetsToday in 2005 to provide the unique perspective of a high-level player and coach -- he earned NCAA D-1 All-American honors as a catcher and coached several players who went on to play pro ball. As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.
