Tonight's line-up: Jose, Luis, Jay Bay Bay, Animal, Dub, Iked Avis, God Barajas, GMJ. So, Carter cleans up again and Pagan sits for no apparent reason. Is this Jerry's "I don't care if I get fired" line-up?

Return of the Mack

Welcome back to the org, Val Pascucci. Enjoy Buffalo. This is also an excuse to once again link to this video.

Oh boy.

Andy Martino has come quickly out of the gate with the "Sure, Chris Carter can hit, but pinch-hitting is special and only guys who can't hit, like Frank Catalanotto, can be pinch-hitters" post.

Saves, Relievers and Bullpen Roles

26

Not Mets-related, but yet another in the long line of "Stupid stat nerds just don't understand that baseball is played by people, not spreadsheets" articles, this time regarding closers. I just wanted you all to share in the joy.

Rubin: Iggy to DL; Acosta to Bullpen

43

The Mets have decided, apparently, that Manny Acosta is the person who should join the bullpen should Iggy end up on the DL. UPDATE: Yep, Iggy to DL, Acosta to 'pen.

Congrats, Keith Hernandez!

Keith won the 2010 New York Emmy Award for Best Sports Analyst, one of five gongs taken home by SNY. (Link is to a PDF list of all winners, if you all'd rather not click through).

"Good," he said, turning to face the reporters encircling him. "You guys wait till [expletive] happens, then you can talk [expletive]. Two [expletive] games, and already you [expletives] are going crazy. "What's up with that, man? [Expletive]. [Expletive] 160 games left. That's a [expletive]. One of you [expletives] got to go ahead and hit for me."

David Ortiz reminds us all that there's a whole lot of season left to go.

It's both that I can see this happening with Jenrry Mejia and I can see the media loving that it is happening . . .

Relievers are volatile, up and down. So teams can luck into late-game solutions. You cannot say the same for elite starters. Put it this way: The Mets have a better chance of unearthing Francisco Rodriguez’s set-up man than finding an internal solution when John Maine, Mike Pelfrey or Oliver Perez inevitably break body parts or hearts.

Joel Sherman gets it dead right on Mejia.

Mike Lupica is a Big Jerry Manuel Fan

This is just one more reason why I can support Jerry Manuel's swift exit from the Mets.

Ken Rosenthal's Wacky Realignment

45

I saw that he put the Mets in the AL East (err, AL "Atlantic") with the Yankees and moved the Red Sox to the NL East and I realized that, if this ever happened, I might stop watching baseball in protest.

Beltran has "no hard feelings" with Mets over his surgery.

Also, Carlos admits that he is a human being. Good to know.
