Jeff Wilpon was hanging around the Mets dugout before the Braves game yesterday, if just to remind everyone that he could kill them all if he really wanted to. (He must have been muttering this to himself.) You can tell the Daily News was casting Wilpon as the reaper because they made a special note that "Wilpon shook hands with Jerry Manuel," as if Wilpon was going to slap him in the face or something. Anyway, the Mets lost 9-3 to the Braves, "falling" eleven games behind Atlanta and one game under .500. But David Wright has Roger Clemens's back, so there's some good news.
