Lots of great reading this morning.
Ya know, many of us were aghast at the Jeff Francoeur signing, but he is a really hard guy not to like.
The wonderful and talented Marty Noble has a great piece on Frenchy's arm over at Mets.com. It's an in-depth write-up, and I really enjoyed it.
We keep hearing different opinions on what will actually happen to Fernando Martinez this year, but I for one would like to see him start with the big club and split time with Angel Pagan until Beltran gets back. Just tell F-Mart that's the deal--you're here for about a month, enjoy yourself, play some ball, and then go to Buffalo until we need you. My pals at Amazin Avenue have him pegged for the minors on their Make the Mets-O-Meter, and they're probably right.
Kevin Kernan has a story over at the NY Post about how David Wright has to prove he's over the 2009 beaning. It's a pretty tired topic, but it's well-written and he makes some solid points. E for effort Kevin.
Dave Doyle at the Mets Report is saying what a lot of Mets fans feel--Jenrry Mejia should make the team. Although I am salivating at the kid's stuff, I actually disagree with Dave on this one.
My buds at Hot Foot question the Alex Cora signing...again, something of a tired topic, but you can't argue with what they write. Was it truly a mistake? Survey says....I'm not sure.
Ed Ryan at Mets Fever asks about Pat Misch, specifically why the club is so quiet on him despite some success, his age, and his cheapness....it's a good question.
Oh, and about that artist rendering in the picture...if anyone sees that guy let me know immediately....I could use the gold.
