Luis, Luis

As dubbed by commenter Gordon in the below post the Mets could run out the “Luis Luis” keystone combination with the recall of infielder Luis Hernandez from the minor leagues. Hernandez, whom I’m already confusing with that Ramon Martinez guy we played at second base near the end of the ’08 season, will wear No. 3 and presumably stick around only until Jose Reyes feels better. Jesus Feliciano was again returned to Buffalo to make room.

The Mets before the game introduced Matt Harvey, their top selection from the draft this June, and presented him with a No. 35 jersey. I’m heading off on vacation and might be tardy with updates over the next week: Expect the usual suspects to be recalled (Feliciano, Nick Evans, maybe even Sean Green) and hopefully a few new faces (Lucas Duda, who couldn’t possibly be a worse candidate to get outfield starts than Jeff Francoeur) but those may not come immediately as Buffalo fights for a playoff spot.

As always you can stay in touch here. Mets by the way keep extending that contiguous-points-at-.500 streak: At 64-64 they are now at 12 straight. They are very average.

    I heard this on the radio and truly wish I came up with this idea. Since Perez is under a bullet-proof contract and decided he’s too good for the minor leagues, I think the Mets should make him catch. I bet there’s nothing in his contract that states he has to pitch. Put him behind the plate to catch Mejia and Parnell’s 98 mile an hour flameballs just long enough for him to get injured and go on the DL. As soon as he gets healthy, put him right back there and let him get injured again or he quits the team. Now that’s how you manage a situation.

    If your name is Luis and you play for the Mets, you’re most likely a second baseman or shortstop. With that said, here we go –

    And what number will Joaquin Arias wear?

    Frenchy’s departure frees up 12. I don’t think they’ll put Arias in that number just yet. I think Arias is going to get Alex Cora’s old 13.

    This about that…

    It’s kind of amazing that they even got anything for Frenchy, and it’s ironic that the Rangers DFA’d Arias when they called up Cora…

    Arias wore 3, 4, and 14 with Texas… I was thinking the Mets will give 12 or even 6 if Evans doesn’t come up.

    Anybody have a clue as to what number Dillon Gee will wind up with? I’m thinking– 40?

    Awesome – ANOTHER CATCHER!

    And wearing #13: Mike Nickeas! I still believe there’s a shot for 9 catchers to play this year. And the Mets will make the playoffs. And in the Easter Bunny.

    Let’s see, we had Santos, Barajas, Blanco, Thole and now Nickeas. Too bad Coste didn’t get a game in.

    Santos was called up earlier,

    Santos was called up earlier, but did not get into a game. Coste didn’t even make it out of spring training, was claimed by Washington on March 29.

    And a fine season he had in DC, getting placed on the DL April 4th and later being shut down for Tommy John surgery w/o getting into a game…and who cares how many catchers the Mets use?

    Dillon Gee is up and will start for Santana on Tuesday. 40 is available, and seems likely. No number listed on yet.


    Submitted by Ranjrz5 on Mon, 09/06/2010 – 11:35am. now has him listed as #35.
