BASEBALL: CAN'T ANYBODY HERE PLAY

Last night's Mets game, while generally a well-played victory featuring Cliff Floyd's first homer in a Mets uniform, once again featured the train wreck that is Roger Cedeno in center field; if you missed the video, Cedeno made a sliding dive in the ninth inning that ended in a Canseco-like embarrassment, with the ball bouncing off the grass a foot in front of Cedeno and hitting him smack in the face. The play left Armando Benitez with a "maybe it's time to start beating my center fielder" look on his face. Fortunately, the Mets got out of the ninth when Ty Wigginton held on to a game-ending popup, although Wigginton did manage to fall down in the process.
