The Mets managed their first ever series win at Petco yesterday with a 7-3 win. The last time we took a series in San Diego was at Qualcomm park in 2002. The win marked the 11th of the season for rookie Dillon Gee.
Jose Reyes is scheduled to do some running on Friday, and if it goes well I'd guess he'll return fairly quickly. In more news from the injury front, Johan Santana is returning to St. Lucie. He will begin throwing in about a week.
After notching his 300th save, Izzy isn't certain he's retiring. It doesn't sound like he's wiling to be the type of bargain he was this season, so I'd guess the chances of a return to Queens are fairly minimal.
Ed Coleman has a piece on 1st rounder Brandon Nimmo, and it has quite a few soundbites for you.
We touched on Terry Collins comments regarding Pedro Beato yesterday. Howard Megdal offers his take on that subject here.
Jeff called out Ted Berg for his hatred of prospects yesterday, which he responded to on his blog.
Around the NL East:
The Philies beat the D'Backs9-2 yesterday. In other philthy news, BTB took a look at the volatility of Cliff Lee.
The Braves weren't as successful as the Phillls yesterday, losing to the Giants. They added Wes Helms to the team yesterday as well.
The Marlins lost to the Rockies yesterday.
The disappointing Reds beat the Nats 2-1. Stephen Strasburg had a very unimpressive rehab start as well. In better news for the Nats, FanGraphs was impressed by the results of their draft.
Brandon Morrow must have had a good feeling when he shut down his old club.
Red Sox DH David Ortiz will be out of action for about a week.
Kurt Suzuki went deep twice as the A's got past the Orioles.
FanGraphs does a little Q&A with Charlie Haeger about his knuckleball. This kind of stuff never gets old to me.
