Meet the Mets

After he pitched well but the Mets lost, Chris Capuano isn't too happy with himself for striking out three times at the plate. That's noble of him, but it's the other hitters who should be regretting their lack of performance last night.

If Willie Harris' attempted stolen base in the ninth inning wasn't frustrating enough, Adam Rubin's got a quotation from Harris that won't make it any better.

The Mets won't be getting any more out of Chris Young, who tore his anterior capsule in his pitching shoulder and is likely out for the season. Jenrry Mejia also confirmed that he'll need Tommy John surgery. So the Mets' starting pitching depth is thin at best, and the Astros designated Nelson Figueroa for assignment.

David Wright has reportedly been dealing with back pain for the past couple of weeks, but he's not making it an excuse for his lack of production.

Another update on an injury: Bobby Parnell has pitched in his first rehab game, but Terry Collins wants to see how he performs in cold weather before he returns to the Mets.

Watching Jose Reyes play is a whole lot a of fun, isn't it?

Baseball Prospectus' guide to baseball's mascots appropriately starts with Mr. Met.

Around MLB

Prior to the game in Colorado last night, Jim Tracy called out Rockies' third baseman Ian Stewart for his abysmal performance.

Joe Blanton returned to the mound for the Phillies, and they beat Javier Vazquez and the Marlins last night. Speaking of those irritating Phillies, Roy Oswalt is aiming to return from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Why do the Nationals ignore their previous existence as the Montreal Expos?

George Steinbrenner assisted the F.B.I. in an ultimately successful effort to get a pardon from Ronald Reagan.

Don Mattingly and Juan Uribe got tossed from their game last night.

The Mariners finally lost their patience with Milton Bradley and have designated him for assignment.

If there were any doubts about Zack Greinke's return from his rib injury, there shouldn't be after his stellar outing last night.

The Mets aren't the only team who has to deal with injuries. Curiously-acquired Vernon Wells strained his groin in the Angels game last night. And Luke Scott has a torn muscle in his shoulder but will try to play through it for now.
