It wouldn’t surprise me to see this afternoon’s AAA callup, Chris Aguila, show up at Shea tonight inheriting the same No. 6 jersey that belonged last to pointless infield acquiree Abraham Nunez and before that to overmatched outfielder Nick Evans, and before that to obscure, briefly visiting catcher Gustavo Molina.
And it wouldn’t surprise me if the Mets losing streak reached the same No. 6 tonight, seeing as Mike Pelfrey opposes Brandon Webb. And it would come as no surprise if the Mets might lose as a result of getting entirely too cautious with a lead, as they’re in the dreadful habit of once again.
Catching up with moves from Tuesday, they activated Moises Alou, along with Marlon Anderson, from the disabled list, while designating third catcher Raul Casanova to for assignment. Not surprisingly, Alou couldn’t make it through the rain delay last night. Anderson in the meantime, was welcomed back despite doing nothing while healthy to have helped this club so far. That’s also not a surprise.
Thanks to a note from Joey we know Casey Hodges was snapped up by the Braves in the 23rd round of the amatuer draft. Boo!
