Mets stuff: Wright hug, Harvey girlfriend, Puello vs. Pederson

Mets vs. Yankees again tonight! Anyone else wondering what Gary Cohen could have possibly up to last night? I’m guessing he was patrolling the streets of Queens as a masked vigilante, but he was probably just sick or something. Either way, Bobby V will be on television, which is always exciting.

Speaking of people named “V,” who could resist blogging about Matt Harvey’s newest squeeze?

Most recently, they were seen having dinner together at NYC eatery Willow Road, and were photographed attending the N.Y. Rangers game together on Thursday, May 23. In the sweet pic, Harvey is seen giving the 5’9 blonde bombshell a tender kiss on her forehead as she smiles, her hand rested comfortably on his chest.

Based on what I’ve seen of Anne V (whose real last name is Vyalitsyna in case you want to get creepy), she is pretty fly, so kudos to Harvey for hooking up. They seem to be TOTES ADORBS in that pic I linked to.

In other cute Mets news, David Wright hugged a fan last night as he was walking off the field at the end of the game. It was just precious and will probably make people love Wright even more than they do now. I mean, who doesn’t love a good hug?

Actual analysis: Is Cesar Puello better or worse than Dodgers outfield prospect Joc Pederson? Prospect expert John Sickels tried to find the answer today and decided that he liked Pederson better even though he admits that Puello has more upside. I’m just fine with that, because Pederson is rocking the Israel threads.

What makes Sickels’ article really interesting is that Ben Berkon at Amazin’ Avenue just listed Pederson as a possible trade target for the outfield-starved Mets. Desipte being talented, Pederson is finding his way to the majors blocked by huge contracts and Yasiel Puig, who is an even more talented prospect. You may remember Puig as the guy who just didn’t make many outs at all during spring training.

Anyway, the point is that Pederson could make the majors much more easily if he were in the Mets’ system, so maybe something can get worked out between the two clubs. With Wilmer Flores continuing to hit in Triple-A, current second baseman Daniel Murphy looks like a guy whom the Mets could trade away for young talent.
