Morning Coffee: In Parallel Puerto Rican Universe, Everyone but Jason Bay Sucks in Met Loss

During the Met game tonight - which the club lost 10-3 by making some timely errors and R.A. Dickey not having his knuckleball magic and the Met bullpen never having magic to begin with - there was discussion of why Jason Bay hasn't been good for the club in my house.  I'm a defender of J-Bay, having seen David Wright struggle immensely against pitching he'd faced before in new Citi Field last year, can only imagine how difficult it has been for Bay facing a lot of unfamiliar faces, despite returning to the NL after starting his career there.

So I was quite happy with Bay notching his second two-homer game of the season and knocking in the Metropolitans only three runs.  Not much else, to be honest.

Anyway, the rest of your sporting day:
