Blog Roundup: The .500 Edition

There have been times over the past couple of years where a Mets record of .500 was a good thing.  But after a 7-3 start in their first 10 games, the Mets have gone 1-5 against the Braves and the Giants to drop their record to 8-8.  The hope, if you’re looking for some, is that they have a tough schedule in April.  A .500 record at the end of this month would not be the worst thing in the world.  By the way, has anyone seen Ike Davis‘s swing?

The even-handed Blogs:

  • Metsblog has quotes from manager Terry Collins, who keeps his chin up regarding Ike and Lucas Duda.
  • MMO reports the Mets have recalled the electric and eclectic Jordany Valdespin from Buffalo in place of Jeremy Hefner, who did a fine job in game one of Monday’s double header.
  • Adam Rubin has more injury fun for your favorite New York baseball team!
  • Mack wants to know if New York reporters will call for the lopping of Dillon Gee‘s…facial hair?
  • Sweet Spot goes all Hitchhiker’s Guide on us (I hope you remembered to bring your towel).
  • Palm Beach has Jose.  Jose, Jose, Jose.  Reyes.  You know.
