Billy Wagner threw on flat ground yesterday, though his timetable for return is still "week-to-week" per Omar Minaya. If the Mets can stick it out and make it to the postseason without Wagner, it's conceivable that they could have their best reliever back in time for the playoffs. That may be a big "if", but it's hard to be terribly optimistic about Wagner's outlook at this point.
Newsday's Wallace Matthews attributes Carlos Delagdo's resurgence to Willie Randolph's firing, suggesting that perhaps Delgado is more comfortable under Jerry Manuel. Maybe. Delgado *is* hitting .285/.375/.603 since Randolph's ouster, though most of the prominent Mets have improved offensively since then.
