Not much commentary is necessary after last night. It was bad. But, the luxury of good pitching is that we have Santana to watch tonight.
Meet the Mets
More injury news, this time it's Gary Sheffield, who has knee pain. He will continue to play, however. Angel Pagan, however, is now on the DL.
Why do I feel like signing Ben Sheeets would be the second coming of Jeff D'Amico?
JJ Putz has got to start locating his fastball. Injuries could be causing the lack of velocity on his fastball.
Ted Berg, Met defender, comes to the rescue of much maligned David Wright.
As referenced by Sam, Matt Cerrone takes a look at potential starting pitchers who could join the Mets.
FanGraphs does an outstanding job of evaluating Carlos Beltran's defense so far in the new Citi Field.
I'm intrigued by this new short film, I'm Keith Hernandez, but haven't had a chance to watch it yet. Anyone seen it? Is it worth 20 minutes of my extremely valuable time? (Apparently it's NSFW)
Around the NL East
Florida and Philadelphia both won, with the Philly victory sending the Mets 1.5 games back in the division. Ryan Howard and Chase Utley went back to back. Howard was just named co-player of last week.
Jorge Julio made an appearance in last night's Marlins-Brewers game, and bit the Mets again, giving up the lead and the game to the Marlins.
Antonio Bastardo is facing Jake Peavy tonight. Bastardo may be trade bait for the Phillies to acquire Peavy. John Mayberry Jr. was sent down to triple-A to make room for Bastardo.
Peavy would be perfect for the Phillies. In other news, the sky is blue.
Rob Dibble uses "we" to describe the Nationals in his broadcasts, but, he is a rare dose of honesty in that booth.
What might have been.
Erik Bedard for Adam Jones hasn't worked out so well for the Mariners.
The promising start for the Royals has led to a tailspin.
Billy Buckner quieted the Dodger lineup for a 3-2 win.
The Yankees have been error free for 18 games. That's something.
