MLB Injury News:
Earlier today, I wrote a story on how there were whispers that the Rockies may make Carlos Gonzalez available this offseason. While a trade for Gonzalez may be unlikely, that won't be keeping teams away from asking the Rockies about their star outfielder.
The New York Mets would "love" to trade for Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, according to John Harper of the New York Daily News.
The Rockies have "little interest" in any of the Mets' position players, Harper says. The only one they may have legitimate interest in is catcher Travis d'Arnaud. A deal would have to include much more than d'Arnaud, so right now a deal seems unlikely.
On the season, Gonzalez is hitting .302 with 26 home runs and 70 RBI's. A deal between the Mets and Rockies appears unlikely, but that doesn't mean a deal won't happen. It's unlikely right now, but things can change as free agency nears.

Whatever intentions Mets reliever Frank Francisco had when he hit Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth with a pitch on Thursday, Ron Darling thinks it was pretty dumb.
Francisco drilled Werth with a 3-0 pitch during the eighth inning of the Mets’ 7-2 loss, and Darling, a former All-Star pitcher and now SNY’s color announcer, was not willing to give Francisco the benefit of the...
David Wright is getting close to coming off the disabled list. The punchless New York Mets sure could use him, if only to make their lineup a little more competitive the rest of the way.
Henderson Alvarez pitched seven innings of four-hit ball and the Mets were shut out for the third time in six days, losing 3-0 to the Miami Marlins in the opener of a doubleheader Saturday.
New York Mets' relief pitcher Frank Francisco left the game in the eighth inning of Saturday's game with the Miami Marlins after getting hit on the hand with a line drive.

The Mets split a doubleheader yesterday. Winning one game and losing the other.
The numbers told a larger story though. By losing the first game, the Mets officially recorded their 5th straight losing season. Now the Mets sit with 82 losses. Being very honest with ourselves, for the last two weeks, it looked like the Mets would need a miracle to prevent a losing season. There is...
