Mets Morning News: Why Izzy Is Valuable, Pagan's Back, Dickey's UphillBattle

The Daily News writes, "Bobby Parnell's terrible ninth inning against Padres a reminder why Jason Isringhausen is valuable." About his disastrous ninth inning appearance, Parnell said:
"I left the ball over the middle of the plate. I left 'em up, over the plate. Just a bad day."
Angel Pagan is expected to be back in the lineup in the next day or so after leaving Wednesday night's game with lower back spasms.
"Hopefully, I’ll be good for (today)," Pagan said. "I just don’t want to be out for too long."
Jeff Roberts of The Record writes that life on and off the field for R.A. Dickey has always been an uphill battle.
Dickey's story began with a difficult childhood that included his parents' divorce, his mother's alcoholism and Dickey often living with friends while he attended Nashville's Montgomery Bell Academy.
