Thayer He Goes Again

46The Mets today recalled a guy I never heard of, Dale Thayer, from Class AAA Buffalo and designated Pat Misch for assigmnent. Thayer is a 30-year-old righthanded journeyman reliever (is there any other kind?) who appeared briefly with Tampa Bay in 2009 and 2010. He signed as a minor league free agent with the Mets in February and was doing a pretty nice job with the Bisons (25 Ks in 26 innings, 4 saves and a 2-0 record). The Mets have assigned him the dreaded No. 46, last occupied by our friend Oliver Perez.

Also tonight, the Mets welcome back Angel Pagan, and hopefully, his bat too. His return means Fernando Martinez heads back to Buffalo.

Phillies for three. Ready or not!

    With the sad news about Gary Carter’s health. I wonder if in the near future his number 8 will be retired. It has been unofficially retired for the past decade or so (even after Charlie Samuels is gone) and this may be an opportunity to bury the hatchet between the Mets and Carter and provide a chance for some much needed positive PR.

    If Carter is retired, I see Keith’s number 17 soon thereafter.

    I couldn’t agree more. The typical Mets approach is to do so after he’s already passed away along with a black armband with his number on it. For god’s sake – let him be around to see it. He was one of the most important players ever to wear a Mets uniform, he’s in the Baseball Hall of Fame – if you’re going to ever do it, now is the time.

    Do we really need to make a facebook page to make this happen?

    Okay, there is one.

    So there it is

    Thanks Adam for bringing up the topic. I suspect the Mets will somehow bungle this, whatever the decision!
