While the Mets were asking Alfonzo to beat it, they also decided against arbitration offers to John Valentin 4, Mark Guthrie 53, Jeff D’Amico 18 and Steve Reed 39, most likely ending their careers with the Mets. And they re-signed the boring-but-effective Steve Trachsel 29.

The Mets in a seemingly curious move today called up outfielder Tony Tarasco 40 from Norfolk and designated Mark Johnson 20 for assignment (hopefully that assignment is a simple visit to Norfolk). The move comes a few days after bench power was restored when John Valentin 4 returned from the disabled list and Ty Wigginton 9 was sent back to the Tides.
