Blog Roundup: Done with Mirrors

The lonely, baseball-less days of winter are nearly over (in a baseball sense, anyway).  Soon the Boys of Summer will take to the fields of Florida and Arizona in preparation for the latest season of the greatest game on Earth.  Until then, enjoy some more offseason hand-wringing, and a couple of awesome videos.

Blogs aweigh:

So, for less (waayyy less) than the price of a cup of coffee, adopt Mets Today as your home for all things Metropolitan.


Blog Roundup: Waivers Edition

Yesterday, the Mets placed OF Fernando Martinez and LHP Daniel Herrera on waivers to make room for the impending signings of OF Scott Hairston and IF Ronny Cedeno.  Thus ends the once-promising Mets career of Martinez, who suffered from a passel of maladies, including arthritis, all before his 24th birthday.  Meanwhile, a purported anonymous Met lashed out at the Wilpons in a New York Magazine piece.

The Blogs have cleared waivers, and have been assigned to a link dump:

  • Mack has a detailed timeline that chronicles F-Mart’s Mets career.
  • Tedquarters wonders if someone else should have been waived instead.
  • R.A. Dickey blogs from the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
  • 7 Train to Shea believes Mark Teahen could be a contributor off the Mets’ bench.
  • Metstradamus hopes CRG is a light at the end of the tunnel, and not an oncoming train.
  • Joe Petruccio depicts NY Giants coach Tom Coughlin channeling Tug McGraw.
