The Mets made their first September call to Norfolk, bringing back brief vistors Jorge Toca 30 and Tom Martin 34, as well as Pete Walker. Walker first appeared in a Met uni six years ago wearing No. 49; Now, he wears 43. Also, the Mets recalled Timo Perez 6 after Benny Agbayani 50 went down with a busted hamhock. More Tides may be on their way after the AAA playoffs — stay tuned.
In a different deal Saturday, the Mets acqured local lefty and erstwhile Website operator C.J. Nitkowski for the ever-popular Player To Be Named Later. Nikowski wears No. 40.Nitkowski, by my records, became the 666th career Met. Cool!
