The Mets made a couple of moves today. First, they claimed veteran infielder Angel Berroa off waivers from the Yankees and assigned him to AAA Buffalo. Berroa, the 2003 AL Rookie of the Year, had been designated for assignment by the Yankees on June 24 after hitting just .136 with one double and one RBI in 21 games this season. Also, the Mets assigned Nick Evans to Buffalo this afternoon to create roster space for Jeff Francoeur. Speaking [...]
Sometimes desperate times make us think desperate thoughts. Last night as I watched Johan Santana serve up a change-up to Ryan Braun that, frankly, I could have hit, and then watch the ball and a bunch of Brewers bounce all over the field and across the plate four times, my disbelief turned into realism.

In today’s finale, they touched up Cardinals ace, Chris Carpenter for three runs thanks to a two-run double by Nick Evans who comes through again in the clutch. Manuel put Evans in the [...]
Nick Evans has been called the first baseman of the future for the New York Mets and has been considered the heir apparent to Carlos Delgado. The Mets may have to rethink all of that in light of the tremendous struggles Evans is experiencing at AAA – Buffalo. In 75 at-bats for the Bisons, Evans is batting an abysmal .093 with just 7 hits this season. Three of those hits are homeruns, but that’s no [...]
