Watch Davis do his best Jason Bay.  He'll go to the Pirates and hit 30 HR's for 3 straight years....

Kevin Kernan's twitter almost seems as if it's trying to say something is going down

Report: #Mets very close to making a trade. May include Ike Davis.

This close to gametime, it has to be a trade, unless they really didn't know who to send down.

Rubin is quoting Kernan as to trade rumors. Kernan's tweet looks like he's half joking.

SOUND SMART:  The Mets started winning when the guys who were expected to contribute got hurt, and the other guys stepped up.

Looks like something is going down.

Freddy Freeman is the only concern...everyone else is just average and Niese should handle.

6)  Mets pitchers have yet to get a hit this year.  With Colon pitching tomorrow Jon better get one tonight!

Wow, that's about the most egregious example of "small sample size" mania I've ever seen.

Not a single one of those facts would sound smart to someone who actually understands statistics, let alone baseball statistics. 


Come on guys, you're usually more on the ball than this! Tell us something useful!

@7up17_2go  He has been doing his best Jason Bay for the last three years- that is, Jason Bay with the Mets.

@Victor Triguero  I can just imagine Sandy Alderson playing darts with two images of Brown and Nieuwenhuis right next to each other hitting Brown but wanting to send down Nieuwenhuis and telling himself, "best 51/100".

Kirk and Brown are very similar. Wouldn't be surprising.

Yeah, but now that i think about it, theyve been rock solid save for tejada, especially the OF

@Victor Triguero @oleosmirf  No lineup and we're less than an hour to gametime. Kevin B. thinks it's a trade.


Either someone else got hurt or the Mets made a move...
