I may not have seen yesterday's game, but I do get to read a lot about it. Here's what I've found.
Meet the Mets
Who would've thought that a lineup without Jose Reyes would set the Met record for stolen bases in a game (7)? Wright had four of the steals and Beltran, once again, stole third in the 9th on a questionable call by the third base umpire. Reyes was a scratch along with Delgado and Putz in last night's 7-4 victory over the Giants.
Delgado's injuries are now being called "career-threatening." It sounds like it will take a miracle to get Delgado back on the field this season. That means the Mets will be relying more on Sheffield.
Strange move in the minors, as the big league club told AA manager Mako Oliveras to sit lefty starter Michael Antonini. This suggests that Antonini is on the move somewhere.
Are the Mets thinking of bringing up F-Mart with all these injuries?
Andrew Vazzano has had enough of Willets Point.
Around the NL East
After their 11-1 start, the Marlins have dropped below .500 for the first time this season after getting swept at Miller Park by the Brewers. Josh Johnson lasted 4 innings, walking 5.
Cole Hamels showed some promise for a beleaguered Philly starting staff, but Philadelphia still fell to the Dodgers at home in 10 innings. Charlie Manuel doesn't think his team his hitting the ball "good". That be gritty talk.
A World Series victory leads to lots of ticket sales, not necessarily wins, however.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are close to spending $4 million on Dominican Republic shortstop prospect Miguel Angel Sano. Sano is 16, 6'3" and 180 lbs, bats right handed with power and a strong arm.
Last year's golden boy Rays are having a tougher time this year at 16-20.
Eric Milton is back, this time with the Dodgers.
Not something you see everyday, but Howie Kendrick has been stripped of a home run, giving an error to Jose Guillen and lowering Gil Meche's ERA.
In a bizarre and sad story, former Yankee catcher Jim Leyritz is suicidal.
The Diamondbacks are 1-5 since their managerial switch.
Enjoy the weekend everyone! Stay injury free!
