Blog Roundup: Post Double Header Edition

The Mets got a dose of reality last night as they got swept in a double header by the Wild Card-leading  Atlanta Braves.  Tonight, they go back to their easy schedule, opening a series against the Chicago Cubs (While the St. Lucie Mets play the Cubs’ A-ball team in the playoffs).  In addition, Sunday is the tenth anniversary of the attacks of 9/11, and it is sure to be an emotional day at Citi Field.

Now for a dose of the Blogs:

  • Metsmerized pays tribute to Mike Piazza’s post-9/11 moment.
  • Amazin’ Avenue looks at how history may have exaggerated baseball’s impact on post 9/11 America.
  • Baseball Prospectus says the Mets were involved in a couple of CATegorically historical moments.
  • Mets Minor League Blog has a video retrospective of 20 years of B-Mets baseball – with some familiar faces.
  • NJ.com Fan Blog is optimistic about the 2012 Mets, even if they don’t find the Holy Grail.
  • Mets360 has a report card on Sandy Alderson’s first year.  He narrowly avoids getting grounded.
