An April Showdown?

The Mets are heading to Philadelphia this week for a three-game series.  Well, this is what Omar Minaya wanted, right?  Meaningful games in April!

In other news:

The Mets completed a sweep of the Dodgers today. 

Not even the elements could stop the Mets. 

Skipper Manuel is going to stick with Ollie come what may. 

Those footsteps you hear belong to Jimmy Rollins. 

The Brad Lidge cometh.

(Sorry, but two more Howard links — and the guys who wrote ’em ain’t schlubs)

John Heyman likes the Howard deal.

Joe Posnanski does not.

MLB Trade Rumors says that the Phillies’ talks with Jayson Werth are at an impasse.  Two things can happen here, it seems: the Phillies re-sign worth and he continues to kill the Mets; or, the Mets sign Werth and he becomes a poor man’s Pat Burrell.

The Joy of Sox tells us that Red Sox keep playing one-run games.  My baseball instincts tell me that doesn’t speak well for the team’s future.
