BS Applesauce - Reyes setback, Mets blow another, Castillo vs. the dugout, Yusmeiro Petit


Not too much encouraging news after last night's debacle. The new and improved bullpen looks a lot like the 2008 bullpen for Santana. If I wasn't able to laugh about this season, I definitely would cry myself to sleep every night.

Meet the Mets

Jose Reyes was sent back to New York for further examination after he felt discomfort from running. Adam Rubin, who apparently played a mean shortstop back in Babe Ruth league, says he may be done for the season. At this point, what difference does it make if he plays in 2009?

Not only did Reyes suffer a setback, Luis Castillo fell down the dugout steps last night, spraining an ankle. It looks like we are going to have a double play combination of Angel Berroa and Alex Cora. Wow. Castillo can't wait for Florida.

Greg Prince lists the things that the 1914 Boston Braves did not do to complete their miracle season.

Metstradamus pictures a new Subway commercial.

The Mets horrible season has a trickle down effect on their farm system, as well.

Carlos Delgado is running, kind of.

Matt Cerrone talks to Josh Thole. No word yet if he means business too.

Centerfield Maz highlights one of my favorites, John Olerud.

Wilmer Flores went 3-for-4 and Lance Broadway is not good.

Around the NL East

The Marlins blew a 4-0 lead to the Nationals, losing 6-4. Is it just me or are the Mets clearly the worst team in the division right now?

The Phillies lose to the Rockies and the fans left early. Wow, spoiled already.

JA Happ was moved to the Philadelphia bullpen.

The Braves showed signs of life last night, beating up on the Padres.

Around MLB

Yusmeiro Petit (remember him?) took a no-hitter into the 8th inning for Arizona.

Met fans aren't the only ones mad at Guillermo Mota. Prince Fielder was stopped at the Dodger clubhouse door by security after Mota hit him with a retaliation pitch. 

Mark Prior's career rehabilitation with the Padres took a step back yesterday as he was released.

Joe Posnanski is getting a senior writers job at Sports Illustrated.

Keep an eye on Neftali Perez
