I’m out here in fabulous Las Vegas and missed most of the debacle last night that made my previous post about looking up at the Nationals in the standings prophetic. I did see however that the game included what possibly could be the last turn at bat in Frank Catalanotto‘s career. I’m glad for his sake that he got a chance, he even got his number, 27, but he sure wasn’t helping the Mets win, and he was designated for assignment last night.Chris “The Animal” Carter, whom they couldn’t stop in Spring Training and couldn’t stop at Buffalo, has been recalled to take his place and I wouldn’t be surprised that he a la Ike Davisprovides the club with a little bounce. Let’s Go Mets!
My friend Edward suggests this is a good opportunity for the Mets to break out the No. 8 jersey again (or you know, just use some old ones) but it would be most likely he alights in the same No. 23 he wore this spring. Also saw where Josh Thole replaced Henry Blanco while the latter goes to the bereavement list. Thole is back in his familiar 30. More later!
