Tuesday Morning Mets Links

The Mets are back in action tonight against the Indians… Here’s what’s going on in the Mets-o-sphere:

Amazin’ Avenue – Eric Simon has a Mets trivia question – name all the Mets players who hit three doubles in a game.

Studious Metsimus – Today is a high holy day in Mets history. His name is Keith Hernandez.

Long Live Shea Stadium – A scouting report on the pitcher the Mets will face tonight – Cleveland’s Justin Masterson.

FanHouse – Four of the top five teams in the latest MLB Power Rankings are from Los Angeles or New York. Weird.

OnTheBlack – Kerel Cooper thinks Jose Reyes is back to being the player Mets fans know and love.

BrooklynMetFan – Apparently, Heath Bell wants to come back to New York when his contract is up? Weird.

Read The Apple – The Mets have banned World Cup games from the clubhouse. Not really.

And here is video of Wally Backman’s old team killing time in the dugout during a rain delay, by dropping sunflower seed shells into a teammates’ hair. Some of the video is not safe for work (NSFW), but it is far tamer than the video of the Wally Backman ejection that has been making its way around the internet this week:
