Friday Mets Links: Friday Edition

The Mets are on top of the world and ahead of the Nats… Time for some links:

MyMetsJournal – Joe Petruccio creates some fantastic artwork out of Gary Cohen’s fantastically forced “goose egg sweep” comment.

MetsMerized – Jessup gives a State of the Union-type rundown of the Mets. Translation: it’s time to bring in Oswalt.

213 Miles From Shea – Did you know that two of the top three current AL home run leaders were dealt by the Mets in the same 2004 trade? That’s some random trivia!

NY Daily News – Bill Price tries to explain the Mets recent hot streak and why they are so good at Citi Field.

Rotoworld – Aaron Gleeman reports that Carlos Beltran will be 6-8 weeks away from returning… once he resumes baseball activities, that is.

OnTheBlack – Kerel Cooper has a video rundown on who’s hot… and who’s not.

And as my JV basketball coach used to say, “You’re never as good as you think you are, but you’re never as bad as you think you are.”

    The link to 213 Miles is bad.
