June 29: PM Mets Links and Open Thread

SNY – How badly do the Mets need another starting pitcher? Dan Graziano thinks Carlos Zambrano should be on the list of possible trade targets.

NY Daily News – Denis Hamill has a nice article about why he loves watching Cyclones games.

Bleacher Report – Metszilla (probably not his/her real name) wants the Mets to pursue Dan Haren instead of Cliff Lee.

Philadelphia Daily News – Fresh off this morning’s news that Lenny Dykstra may have illegally hyped stocks in exchange for money, Paul Hagen reports that Lenny Dykstra may have confessed to taking steroids during his playing career.

ESPN NY – It looks like the Mets’ “Go Gaga For Wright Night” has failed to put Wright ahead of Placido Polanco in the All-Star balloting. And does anyone really care?

TONIGHT’S GAME
