The Mets play the Cardinals and the Diamondbacks at home this week. Where they've been good. If the suckage continues into the homestand, somebody must get fired. If the suckage continues into the homestand, then there is obviously a problem that isn't being addressed and isn't going to be solved by trading away Jeff Francoeur and Luis Castillo. Oliver Perez? Maybe.
And Rod Barajas has been placed on the 15-day DL. Mike Hessman was called up to take his place, 1800 games (or something like that) in the minor leagues later. At least it finally paid off for him. I hope this means more playing time for Josh Thole. He's young. I'd rather see him out there making mistakes and learning than watching 38-year-old Henry Blanco's knees slowly give out.
Jon Niese is pitching against Adam Wainwright tonight. That rhymes. Not that I really care anymore.
Team Record A.C. (After Carlos): 2-9
