Ollie's DL Adventure Applesauce - Met's suspicious roster move, Beltran's rehab, Marlin sweep

Meet the Mets

I'll start with the Met injury news. First, the Mets suspiciously put Oliver Perez on the 15-day DL, seemingly deferring a roster decision for a while. MLB's curiosity was piqued and will investigate. One possible solution for Ollie: Pedro

In more uplifting DL news, we are finally starting to see some positive news on Carlos Beltran's rehab.

Oh yeah, and the Mets played this weekend and swept the Marlins

The MLB Draft is tonight, and the experts have put out some mock drafts. Check out John Sickels' here and the Sports Bank's here. Tim Bontemps thinks the Mets will surely call the name of a college player. Oh, and here's Baseball America's take.

The Gary Matthews Jr. era ended. Here's the inside scoop in how it went down.

Around MLB

There's some more reaction to the whole Jim Joyce thing. We finally have Hugo Chavez's opinion. Jim Joyce appeared on ESPN full of humility. And, finally, Ted Berg's take on the instant replay argument.

Phillies Nation has seen enough of Raul Ibanez. It appears as though all of MLB has seen a lot (but probably not enough) of Jamie Moyer.

Also, about the Phillies, I don't know how I hadn't heard of the Zoo with Roy blog before this.

How long are the Nats going to keep playing like this? Here's a player-by-player look at the odds.

Pittsburgh has responded to the Stephen Strasburg hype by calling up their own pitching prospect for the DC series.

The Marlins have called up their prized prospect Mike Stanton, along with Rick VandenHurk and Emilio Bonifacio.

That didn't take long: Pat Burrell is back in the majors.

Mike Carp is hopefully getting the call to Seattle.

Some interesting draft stories to pass along. Tyler Kepner talked to the five players drafted before Derek Jeter. Also, Morgan Ensberg retells his draft story.

Finally, the suit between Jon Lovitz and the LA Dodgers has settled.

Outside of MLB

Boxing returns to Yankee Stadium, although I guess you can't really say something returns to a brand new stadium.
