Here are a few interesting items to look at while trying to forget about disappointing Mets loss #21:

  • The Subway Series is coming, and the folks at Steiner Sports are excited. Order select Mets or Yankees autographed items, and if that player hits a home run on Saturday you’ll get it for free. (If not, you’ll pay full price – no returns.) [via Mets Police]
  • Former Newark Bears outfielder Jose Herrera once raced against (in)famous thoroughbred Zippy Chippy — and won. Check out Jason Bristol’s story for CBS21. [via Lisa Winston’s Queen of Diamonds]
  • 18-year-old Japanese knuckleball pitcher Eri Yoshida pitched in an intra-squad game on May 13. She expects to make her debut for the Golden League’s Chico Outlaws on May 29. [via YakyuBaka]
  • Beckett’s Chris Olds takes a look at how different some early examples of popular players autographs are compared to their current signatures. (I actually have one of those 1991 Front Row Manny Ramirez cards.)
