As I have said a lot of late, there is not much Mets news, nor has there been any Mets rumors since the season mercifully ended 2 weeks ago. Yes we still are holding our breath to see if Jose Reyes is retained and we are hoping that Sandy Alderson can make some kind of move that would be reminiscent of the deal that Frank Cashen made which imported Keith Hernandez from the Cards.
But until the hot stove heats up, we will only be pining for whatever nuggets of news and speculation that we can unearth.
Since I have been quiet in regards to both the Yankees and Phillies early exits from the playoffs I hereby give you

Mets alumni celebrating a birthday today includes:
One of the most beloved Mets from the ’80′s, pitcher Sid Fernandez is one year away from turning the big 5-0 (1962) !!!
One of the catalysts from the ’06 season, second baseman José Valentin is 42 (1969) .
Sadly on this date in 1989, third baseman from the ’70 season, Joe Foy passed away. Foy was involved in one of the worst trades in Mets history when he was obtained from the Kansas City Royals for outfielder Amos Otis and relief pitcher, Bob Johnson. Otis went on to become a perennial ALL-Star while Foy struggled with the Mets. There were whispers that Foy was abusing controlled substances, and a year later he was sold to the Washington Senators.
The New York Mets released middle reliver, Mike Marshall on October 12, 1981. Marshall pitched well in his lone season with the Mets. He posted a record of 3-2 with an E.R.A of 2.61 in 20 appearances with the Mets, but he opted to retire after the season had ended.
The New York Mets claimed utility man, Desi Relaford on waivers from the San Diego Padres on October 12, 2000.
Desi played with the Mets for one season, playing mostly the infield. He did pitch one inning in a Mets blowout.
