Monday Mets Links

Seven Train to Shea – Steve Sidoti looks at what caliber of player the Mets could be drafting with the #7 pick. Tulowitski, Kershaw and Pelfrey. Oh my.

Amazin’ Avenue – James Kannengieser says the Mets are swinging at too many pitches out of the strike zone.

OnTheBlack – Should the Mets trade for Cliff Lee? Kerel Cooper breaks it down. My money is on Kevin Millwood.

Brooklyn Met Fan – Adam has a recap of yesterday’s win.
