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.

Looks Like Flores Will Take A Backseat To Davis and Turner

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York emailed Paul DePodesta a few questions regarding a few of the Mets prospects and regarding Wilmer Flores they had the following exchange: Asked if Wilmer Flores remaining in the minors is fielding-related, DePodesta wrote: “Wilmer played some first base largely because of the ankle injury.

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. For the first time since arriving, he provided a bit of power at the perfect time. Young hit a game-ending, two-run homer with two outs in the 11th inning, and the Mets snapped the Kansas City Royals' nine-game winning streak 4-2 on Friday night. It...

Mets missing injured relievers

The Mets are missing two key cogs in their bullpen, closer Bobby Parnell and setup man Josh Edgin, who are both out as New York opens a series against the Kansas City Royals.

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. He doesn’t walk many batters and he strikes out more than one per inning. The excitement surrounding the enormous 6’6, 240 pound right-hander has grown since being traded to the Mets in December, and now he’s getting national...

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...

Switch pitcher could see action in MLB

29-year-old New York Yankees minor leaguer Pat Venditte normally wouldn’t be a player worth noticing. He’s been in the minors for the past seven seasons after the Yankees selected him in the 45th round of the 2007 amateur draft.  On the surface, Venditte is nothing more than your non-prospect who has bounced around in small towns in an attempt to make it to the Majors. That’s...
