June 21: Monday Morning Mets Links

MetsBlog – Matt Cerrone reports that the Mets are leading the NL Wild Card standings.

ESPN New York – Adam Rubin reports that Bobby Parnell will be recalled to replace Jenrry Mejia.

ESPN New York – Adam Rubin ALSO reports that the Mets may be close to shutting down John Maine.

OnTheBlack – Kerel Cooper bucks the emerging trend and makes the case for acquiring another starting pitcher. I guess Kerel hasn’t heard the news – Takahashi is the answer.

Brooklyn Met Fan – BMF is happy with the decision to send Jenrry Mejia down to Binghamton, but not so happy with yesterday’s loss.

The Daily Stache – Randy Shemanski doesn’t want the Mets to deal Mejia for Cliff Lee, or anyone else for that matter.

213 Miles From Shea – Numbers can be funny sometimes. For instance, numbers say the NL East is the best division in baseball. Really? I guess this week’s matchups against the Tigers and Twins could go a long way to proving or disproving this theory.

Rotoworld – Matthew Pouliot says the Mets may pass on Cliff Lee and opt instead for Edwin Jackson. This line is particularly frightening:

Perhaps he [Edwin Jackson] could be had for either Ruben Tejada or Reese Havens, plus a pitching prospect or two. Fausto Carmona and Kevin Millwood could also be fits.

Via ESPN New York, here are Mejia’s postgame comments regarding his new role as a starting pitcher in Double-A:
