Mets' bizarre schedule? In part, blame Bono

The Mets have had their share of travel quirks this season, whether going from Milwaukee to San Diego for back-to-back games or getting stranded in Puerto Rico for an 8 a.m. arrival in DC the following morning. But it's nothing new around baseball, and in today's Mets Insider, we take a look at some of the info that's plugged into the scheduling process, which this season included U2's juggernaut "360" tour that had to be postponed.

Funny that it was Bono landing on the DL - after emergency back surgery -- that affected to many teams this season, and will in 2011 as well with U2 returning to the States next season to make up the canceled dates.
