ESPN New York – Adam Rubin is reporting that Jesus Feliciano is not in tonight’s starting lineup for Buffalo. Does that mean the Feliciano Era will begin tomorrow night?

New York Times – Jerry Manuel is indicating the Mets may bring John Maine back as a reliever.  We may have to implement a 3-week rule on anything Jerry says. If it still seems plausible after 3 weeks, then it can be published.

Wall Street Journal – A fascinating interviw with Jeff Andrews. Mr. Andrews was the minor league pitching coordinator for the San Diego Padres when Ollie Perez was signed as a 16-year old.

MetsBlog – The Brewers have released Jeff Suppan. Could the Suppan Era be right around the corner? He could be the poor man’s Kevin Millwood (aka the poor man’s Cliff Lee)… Stay tuned!
