  1. The wagnermlbblog author is from Philadelphia, so you have to appreciate these words at the end of today’s post about the first-place Mets: “A team that entered the season on the playoff bubble seems to be proving to the world why they are better than just a bubble team.  And, let’s be honest, us Philadelphians do have some compassion.  Every once in a while you have to let a New York City team have some fun.”
  2. Our friends at the incredible Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City have their official blog right here: Monarchs to Grays to Crawfords. Please be sure to follow it so you see all the posts as they hit your inbox, like these thoughts on what’s missing in the game and the need for more involvement. (By the way, did you know Jackie Robinson’s No. 42 is still being retired?)
  3. Because cat loves the dodgers, we’re going to show you what cat is posting. Like this great photo recap of a rivalry. And cat really loved matt kemp, because that gravatar is still going strong. On an unrelated note, I wonder if cat or anyone else can guess why Cubs manager Joe Maddon likes Meat Loaf. Or which MLB mascot is about to start a blog…
