08:08 AM ET 04.05 | Mark May 20-22 on your calendar for the Mets-Yankees subway series, then hope former Mets and current Yankees pitcher Pedro Feliciano is healthy. Feliciano was "hurt" after reading that Dan Warthen said the Mets didn't re-sign the lefty in part because of overuse. And Feliciano, now a Yankee, has a plan to prove his health to the Met pitching coach when the Yankees and Mets play this season. "I will show him in the Subway Series when I strike out Ike Davis and I jump on the mound, 'That's for you,'" Feliciano said Monday, demonstrating how he would point at Warthen in the Met dugout. The Yankee reliever was laughing when he said it, but it's clear Feliciano is bothered by the idea that the Mets did not re-sign him because of workload worries.

Ike hit some moon shots last year, he's got Piazza type strength.

I would'nt worry about playing the Mets. Chances are the Yankees will make the playoffs while the Mets season will be over by August

You're really going out on a limb with that one. You have inside information?

Instead of jumping on the mound, he'll shat on it.

I just took a look at this guy's career stats and he's never even pitched 65 innings in a season. I didn't want to go too deep, but I did look at his game logs from 2010, and while he did often pitch on consecutive days (five days in a row two times), he only went more than one inning in five of his 92 appearances and never more than two. He only threw more than twenty pitches in thirteen of his games.

I just don't understand why the Mets would publicly say that. From my research (albeit breif), it doesn't seem as if it's true and, secondly, if it is, why in the hell would the Mets admit that? He's been a Met his whole career, so basically they're saying they've overworked (abused) him so much that he's not worth having anymore. What kind of message is that to send to former, current or future Met players?

Seems to me like just another example of how bad this franchise really is -- from the owners, to management, to coaches, players and grounds crew. I really do think they're the biggest joke in baseball over the last decade or so.

Probably just a ploy by the Mets to stir up trouble in Yankee-land

If they're that worried about what an interleague rival is up to that badly instead of trying to figure out why they play like the Indians of the NL, then I'll repeat:

I'll even add that their beer vendors and parking attendants probably suck, too.

Nice picture of Joe Girardi... At least have a picture of Ike Davis or Feliciano!

That would be the Pirates, followed by the Royals and the Marlins.

Or to put more fannies in the seats. Like who would want to see the Mets play anybody this year.

Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
