It’s July 1… and the Mets are in second place, 1.5 games behind the Braves. How amazing is that? Here are your morning Mets links:
TheRoPolitans – Last night’s late start and finish gave Andrew Vazzano the opportunity to find the score this morning. Something about this post brings back memories of the old days…
Newsday – Johan Santana thinks he’s cured… of tipping pitches. Dan Warthen agrees. I guess we’ll find out tonight.
MetsBlog – Team reports of Jose Reyes’ stiff back seem to have been inaccurate – Reyes says he injured his oblique. Another bogus medical report from the Mets? That’s sooo 2009!
OnTheBlack – Kerel Cooper announces his pick for Player of the Month for June. And the winner is…
The Daily Stache – Buffalo Bisons pitcher Dillon Gee hit Syracuse outfielder Leonard Davis, in retaliation for Davis’ dirty slide that ended Daniel Murphy’s season. Sticking up for a teammate? Gee needs to get those psychotic anger issues in check or he’ll never make it to the major leagues, just like Wally Backman. Heh.
WFAN – Brooklyn Cyclones manager Wally Backman was on WFAN with Boomer and Carton this morning. They discussed Backman’s time as a player with the Mets, his epic minor league ejection and the first place Cyclones.
