David Aardsma nearly lost the game for the New York Mets on Friday night. The reliever entered the game in the 9th inning with a 2-1 lead and allowed the Kansas City Royals to tie it up, resulting in a blown save. Fortunately, the Mets won anyway on a walk-off homer from Eric Young Jr. in the 11th. But it didn’t solve all of Aardsma’s problems.

When Aardsma returned home after the game, he found that the bed had been removed from his bedroom in his apartment. Or, so he says.

Aardsma then went on to crack a couple of jokes about his bed going missing.

I’m not really sure what the hell is going on here, to be honest. Would someone break into Aardsma’s apartment just to steal his bed and call it a day? My guess is he knows what happened to it, but he saw it as an opportunity to screw with people. If he wanted us to be puzzled, mission accomplished.

And if someone really did steal Aardsma’s bed, maybe that will teach him to not mock other pitchers who blow saves.

Baxter Heading To New York, Will Replace Wright If He Lands On DL

Mets have announced that Mike Baxter is en route to New York and will likely be activated if Wright is placed on the disabled list after his MRI tomorrow.

Young, Mets snap Royals' win streak

Eric Young Jr. gave the New York Mets' lineup a needed jolt from the leadoff spot when he came over from Colorado in June.

Cecchini’s Four-Hit Game Last Night Not A Moment Too Soon

The very young Gavin Cecchini runs into a lot of criticism from fans because of the fact that he was drafted so high for the New York Mets — and perhaps rightfully so. It is unfortunate, however, that one so young faces such pressure to perform — although this could be said about a lot of our young prospects that we drafted out of high school. Cecchini had been struggling with...

A Closer Look At Noah Syndergaard’s Dominance

Noah Syndergaard has steamrolled through the minor leagues. His worst ERA at any level of the minors is a still-impressive 3.11 in 12 starts with St. Lucie.

Blood On Your Lineup Card

Never let Terry Collins go to Atlantic City. Here's why: Because he's the type of guy that will put all of his chips on 31 black, win, and then put all of his winnings back on 31 black for the next roll and lose everything. (Forgive me if I referenced that episode of South Park before.) Of course, I'm referring to Terry "One Batter Too Late" Collins, who...
