Rained Out Applesauce

Let's see if the Mets can finally win a game while I'm watching at work. It's been a while...

Meet the Mets

Jose Reyes has suffered a setback in his rehabilitation from tendinitis. His return has been pushed back indefinitely.

Carlos Beltran was in the scheduled lineup for the Mets last night were the game to be played and Emil Brown was called up to take Ramon Martinez's roster spot.

Brad Holt and Jenrry Mejia have been promoted to Double-A.

JJ Putz has lost the primary setup man's job to Bobby Parnell. 

Former Beatle Paul McCartney will perform the first concert at Citi Field.

What would it take for the Mets to get Matt Holliday?

Josh Thole had a triple and a double in last night's Binghamton loss.

Around the NL East

There's significantly more NL East news than Met news, particularly regarding the Atlanta Braves. Three pretty significant roster moves for the Braves:

  1. They cut future hall of fame pitcher Tom Glavine
  2. They traded for Pirate slugging outfielder Nate McLouth (the only good news being the Mets get to play the McLouth-less Pirates this afternoon).
  3. They called up top pitching prospect Tommy Hanson.

The Cubs beat the Braves, 3-2, in 11 innings on Micah Hoffpauir's pinch hit.

Randy Johnson didn't get a chance at his 300th win last night as it was pouring rain here in DC.

How will Stephen Strasburg change the power dynamic in the NL East?

JC Romero returned from his suspension and the Phillies won their 6th straight. JA Happ threw 7 scoreless innings in the victory. Shane Victorino injured his left hip in the contest.

Some different reactions to Antonio Bastardo's debut. FanGraphs is cautious, Phillies Nation is excited.

The Brewers pounded the Marlins 9-6, scoring 5 unearned runs in the victory.

Around MLB

A-Rod may be dating Kate Hudson

The Rangers have put Vicente Padilla on waivers, sending a clear signal that he is trade bait. 

Chien-Ming Wang is returning to the Yankee rotation on Thursdsay against Texas. 

Josh Hamilton's injury has given Andruw Jones a chance to shine again.

So much for needing Jake Peavy: the White Sox have won 10 of their last 14.

Minnesota high schooler Lars Anderson threw 204 pitches in 13 innings then hit a two run home run to win the game for the Warroad Warriors. 

 

How long will it be before Brad Holt has taken JJ Putz's role in the bullpen?
