This evening's little things Mets:
- Keeping hope alive, AOL Fanhouse's Ed Price tweets that the Mets will be among the teams watching Ben Sheets throw next Tuesday.
- Jon Heyman of SI tweets that the Mets are 1 of 3 teams that are "all in on Joel Pineiro." Gotta love that he used a gambling phrase with respect to Pineiro.
- If you're not busy watching the J-E-T-S Jets! Jets Jets! you can go to YouTube and watch a former M-E-T-S Mets! Mets! Mets! player attack people on the field. Pick an incident, there are multiple choices. The few, the proud, the former Mets. Thankfully Jose Offerman only played 53 games for the Mets so if it makes you feel better please refer to him as a former Dodger (579 games), Red Sock (465), Royal (415), Twin (77), Phillie (33, and my personal preference) or Mariner (29).
