July 20: PM Mets Links and Open Thread

MetsBlog – Matt Cerrone wants to know why Carlos Beltran is lugging a giant knee brace around in centerfield, when Angel Pagan is younger, faster and a better fielder (at this point).

The Mets Police – Meaningful games in August? Yeah, if we’re lucky!

MetsGazette – A look at two-thirds of the braintrust in charge of the Mets: Omar and Jerry. What about Jeff Wilpon?

The Daily Stache – Randy Shemanski looks at the pitchers the Mets could acquire in a trade, if Fred Wilpon wins big money playing QuickDraw between now and the end of the month.

Real Dirty Mets Blog – A recap of Jerry Manuel’s interview with Mike Francessa. Jerry says Ollie will be the first lefty out of the bullpen. Ugh.


Tonight, the Mets (49-44) look to do something right against the lowly Arizona Diamondbacks (35-58). R.A. Dickey (6-3, 2.63) takes the mound for the Mets and he will be opposed by Barry Enright (1-2, 3.45).

Tonight’s lineup, via The Mets Police:

7 Jose Reyes SS
16 Angel Pagan RF
5 David Wright 3B
15 Carlos Beltran CF
29 Ike Davis 1B
44 Jason Bay LF
30 Josh Thole C
1 Luis Castillo 2B
43 R.A. Dickey RHP

        No problem. If you (or any other Mets blogger) has a great post that I missed, just drop the link in the comments section. I’ll look it over and (hopefully) put it in the next link dump.

        Keep up the good work.

          And feel free to link to MetsToday. I don’t do many opinion/analysis posts, but Joe, Matt and John do a great job. If other blogs will link to them more, I won’t feel the need to link to MetsToday in the link dumps. I know that annoys alot of readers, so please know I’m trying.
