AROUND THE WEB:

-- Ever since a video of Robert Kraft standing in between Meek Mill talking to Gucci Mane circulated last week many have been wondering what Mill was saying to Mane and why Kraft looked so confused.

And now we know.

Mill appeared on Sports Illustrated‘s Crossover TV on Wednesday and said he was talking to Mane about Kraft.

“I was telling Gucci, ‘Robert a real dude, man.’ Seriously, he came to visit me in jail, he spoke out for me,” Mill said. “He has a lot of influence. I’m like, ‘He’s a real dude.’ … (Kraft) was saying how nice of a guy Gucci was and Gucci came over, and I was telling Gucci I respect Kraft.”

Mill also said Kraft already knew Mane because Mane performed at one of the Patriots’ Super Bowl parties.

-- The Mets managed to out-Met themselves on Wednesday when they BATTED OUT OF ORDER and killed a rally in the first inning with a man in scoring position.

They ended up losing to the Red 2-1 in 10 innings.

The confusion was caused by discrepancy in the lineup cards. The lineup posted in the Mets dugout had Wilmer Flores batting second and Asdrubal Cabrera batting third but the handwritten lineup card given to umpires had Cabrera batting second and Flores batting third.

"It's frustrating," said Mets manager Mickey Callaway. "It probably cost us the game. We had a chance to score in the first, and we didn't."

He said the intended lineup was the one given to the umpires.

"I knew right when they went up there that we were out of order," Callaway said. "It was an administrative thing that I didn't take care of. Once they announce you, you can't do anything."

Never change, Mets.
