OnTheBlack – Kerel Cooper answers the age-old question, “Can the Mets please eat the contract of [insert name of overpaid outfield veteran here].” Today’s topic: George Foster Vince Coleman Bobby Bonilla Jeromy Burnitz Gary Matthews Jr.
The Sporting News – Carlos Beltran may be close to returning. No surprise there – he’s been getting closer to returning for about a year now, depending on who you believe.

213 Miles From Shea – A list of Mets promotional giveaways in the month of June. With pictures!
