Every morning, we give you the top three stories from Mets-land. Here are this morning’s headlines.

Mets Drop Middle Game To Yankees

The Mets lost to the Yankees last night 4-3.

Chris Young started and pitched very well through six, but gave up a three-run home run to Raul Ibanez in the seventh to tie the game up at three. Jon Rauch came in and allowed another home run later in the inning, giving the Yankees a 4-3 advantage that they would hold.

The Mets send R.A. Dickey to the hill in what could be a pitching duel for the ages as he faces off against C.C. Sabathia in an ESPN game.

Jason Bay Feeling Better

Jason Bay is feeling much better after suffering a concussion last week. Jason has been showing up at the ballpark over the past few days, and is reportedly “symptom free.”

No timetable has been set for his return.

Byrdak Buys A Chicken?

Apparently after Frank Francisco made his chicken comments about the Yankees earlier this week, Tim Byrdak bought a live chicken. Byrdak sent someone to Chinatown, who got one for $8. It’s name is “Little Jerry Seinfeld.”

Little Jerry had a fun day at Citi Field, running around the clubhouse and being fed berries, bread and oatmeal by the team chef.

Byrdak is now trying to find a permanent home for the chicken.
