MEJIA TO MINORS
REAR VIEW MIRROR:
First things first, according to Andy McCullough of NJ.com, Ike Davis is fine after being involved in a car accident this afternoon.
Ike Davis said he was not injured after being involved in a minor car accident on US-1 here on Monday afternoon. He was rear-ended as he drove to go fishing on the team’s off-day. His car was still “fine,” Davis said.
Be careful out there Ike.
HU IS NOT ON SECOND:
Regarding the whole Luis Hernandez/second base thing, no denials yest from the Mets who usually jump right out and say something if a reporter gets it wrong. But Andy Martino of the Daily News does add this:
From talking to people today, definitely do no get sense TC has decided on Hernandez for 2B. He’s in mix, but this is a fluid situation.
So who knows? I was actually hoping to hear a strong denial which didn’t come, so maybe the NY Post finally got something right for a change.

GETS BY BUCKNER:
Hey did you know that Mookie Wilson started his own blog? It’s called Mookie’s View and here is an excerpt from his first post:
How did I get to this point in life in spite of all the restrictions and limitations confronting people like myself in the early 70’s? The social and cultural limitations were enough to cause most people to call it quits. Yet! Here I am with a family, two college degrees and a career in professional sports. Don’t misunderstand me as having a sad childhood, just noting that it was a struggle.
