Meet the Mets

Vin Scully is the best there is and he couldn't be more right. On the fly Marv Throneberry reference. Great work.

The loss was bad. Really bad. But, may I just point out that Tim Redding wasn't awful. What can you expect when you have your starting first baseman out and you're down to your third string shortstopAnd when Angel Pagan doesn't move out of the way when Carlos Voltron is calling for a ball? I will encourage optimism and point you to Eric's awesome analysis of the Met offense so far this year.

But seriously, how do you miss third base? And 5 errors? Really? Really?

Carlos Delgado will undergo surgery today and is expected to miss at least two months. Could Micah Hoffpauir be his replacement? I personally would be a fan of Nick Johnson. Unfortunately, Mike Silva agrees. As long as it's not Russell Branyan. Aubrey Huff is a possibility as well.

So long Nelson Figueroa, again. We didn't even get a farewell tour.

Around the NL East

Welcome to the bigs, Ross Detwiler. The rookie went 5 innings, giving up 2 runs against the Pirates, but the Nationals still somehow lost, 12-7

Derek Lowe finally loses, despite going 8 innings in front of the smallest crowd in Turner Field history (15,364). The Braves are somewhat closer to getting another former ace pitcher on the mound, as Tim Hudson's rehabilitation is going well

Suspended Philly JC Romero has begun his rehab at AAA Lehigh Valley. He may be throwing eventually to newly signed catcher Paul Bako.

Around MLB

Jason Kendall has 2,000 hits? Wow. That's better news for the Brewers than this: Rickie Weeks out for the season.

Jason Isringhausen made his first Ray appearance last night. Izzy allowed one hit in one inning with a 90 mph fastball.

Brian Bruney and Chien-Ming Wang are close to returning for the Yankees. Bruney blames the umpires for his injury.

World Series games will start a half hour earlier this year.

The illusion of a curveball demonstrated. That is pretty cool.

And finally, Alfonso Soriano gets mocked at a WWE event. Classy.
