Mets having a great season:

Jason Vargas had to be restrained from going after Newsday reporter Tim Healey in the aftermath of the Mets’ 5-3 loss to the Cubs at Wrigley Field on Sunday. The incident began with Callaway imploring a public relations official to “get this motherf—– out of the clubhouse” after telling Healey moments earlier “don’t be a smart-ass” after the reporter had in passing said he would see Callaway tomorrow. The incident occurred in the clubhouse about 15 minutes after Callaway’s postgame press conference in the visiting manager’s office.

Vargas then engaged in a stare-down with Healey and threatened to “knock you the f–k out.” When Healey didn’t leave, Vargas took steps toward the reporter before Carlos Gomez and Noah Syndergaard interceded, separating the two.

Article summary: Lenny Dykstra and his amateur wrestling friend, who goes by the name Sprinkles the Clown, spent 9 hours dumpster diving outside a Jersey Mikes, looking for his $80,000 dentures, made with real bone marrow.

My mom made me dumpster-dive for my retainer in 5th grade, after having thrown it out with my lunch tray.  Wound up, my next dentist visit, I didn't need the retainer anymore.  So that was fun.

I can't think of anyone so widely acknowledged as being objectively horrible at his job, who is allowed to maintain it, where removal doesn't seem slightly difficult.

Not a banner season for umps.

To open the season you had the Ump screaming at the entire Astros clubhouse "I can do anything I want!"

And a week or so ago you had the Umps union whining on twitter about Manny Machado not receiving a long enough suspension for F-Bombing a strike call.

Bubba Starling making his MLB debut for the Royals tonight.  He was a big time football and baseball prospect, he was a 4* QB commit to Nebraska, #6 dual threat QB in the country, but the Royals took him #5 overall in the MLB draft, but Boras got him the 2nd highest signing bonus ever, so he signed with the Royals.  Making his MLB debut 8 years later is not ideal, but he got an $8 million signing bonus, so hey, good on him.

Carl Crawford was another guy with that same situation, and in my opinion contributed to Frank Solich's demise.  He would've been nice to have post Crouch.   Crawford of course made a smart decision.

I've said many times that Crawford could have saved Frank's career at Nebraska.  At least give him another 5-10 seasons.

But, sadly, we'll never know.

Carl = great athlete

Jammal Lord gave the Huskers everything he had and he was a helluva runner, but it's easy to imagine Crawford being much better.

Speaking of great athlete,  I finally saw Tebow play some baseball tonight.  He pinch hit in the 9th and then came around again, it's 20-1 Syracuse Mets on top.  He walked and scored and then hammered a major league fly to the track in CF. I know he's struggling lately but man the guy gets ovations everywhere.

He could be a career AA player.  I have no clue why he's still doing what he's doing in AAA.  He has no game power because he has no plate discipline.  He can't hit.

Maybe he should pitch.  That hitch in his delivery might throw batter's timing off.
