– In the New York Post, Mike Puma explores the logic of starting Miguel Batista over Matt Harvey this Saturday: “The Mets’ reluctance to lose Miguel Batista was a strong factor in the selection of the veteran righty over prospect Matt Harvey for Saturday’s start against the Dodgers, a team source said yesterday. If Harvey was selected, the Mets in all likelihood would have cleared roster space by exposing Batista to waivers.”

The logic makes my head hurt. 

– Jonathan Zeller tells us that Brandon Nimmo used to listen to oldies with his dad.

– Adam Rubin talks to Mets VP of Scouting and Player Development Paul DePodesta. Part one has commentary on Harvey and Jenrry Mejia while part two focuses on the draft.
