Found April 25, 2012 on The Daily Stache:

As I sit in the press box at blogger day at Citi Field, the Mets have announced two minor league signings to bolster their depth at Triple-A Buffalo…infielder Brad Emaus and outfielder Fred Lewis.

Emaus, 26, has signed to start 2012 with the Laredo Lemurs of the American Association before joining the Mets. In his 14 games with the Mets in 2011, Emaus struggled, going just 6-for-37 in limited time.

Lewis went to spring training with Cleveland, but he was unable to make the roster.

No problem with the Mets making these signings. With the way the injury bug has got them early in the season, it looks like depth could never be a bad thing.

Bay Placed On DL, Lutz Recalled - Ike To Be Platooned?

It was announced earlier this afternoon that Jason Bay suffered a non-displaced fracture of his rib. Lutz, who was recalled from Buffalo can be used as a 3B or 1B. Chances of Lutz seeing the Hot Corner are slim, so makes one wonder if this means that Fearless Ike, after a dreadful start, might be put into a platoon situation with Lutz. Earlier this spring I wrote about the similarities of

Mets upend Marlins 2-1 behind awesome Johan outing

The Mets couldn’t be feeling too good about themselves as Johan Santana was leaving the game in the seventh inning. Despite pitching spectacularly, Santana was leaving the game with a 1-0 deficit.

Pelfrey was placed on the 15-day disabled list yesterday...

Mets continue to hurt, place Pelfrey on DL

Earlier today, the Mets placed left fielder Jason Bay on the 15-day DL. The hits keep on coming, as the team has also placed starter Mike Pelfrey on the DL with swelling in his right elbow. Pelfrey really hasn't lived up to the high expectations placed on him by the New York media after being drafted ninth overall in the 2005 draft. That, of course, was the loaded draft that...

Home cooking isn't helping Indians

The Cleveland Indians have been dominant on the road this season. Playing at home, however, has proven to be a major problem. Kansas City added to the Indians' home woes on Thursday, scoring three runs in the fifth inning en route to a 4-2 victory. The loss was Cleveland's sixth in eight games at Progressive Field in 2012, which has largely negated its 7-2 record on the...

The Enemy Looks Ridiculous

Well this just about brings it home, so to speak. Doesn't it? It promised to be an eventful day, but we just didn't know how eventful. We awoke to "Jose Reyes Day" with Jason Bay hitting the disabled list with a fractured rib which he accrued by flailing and missing a fly ball. This we sort of expected. But then we find out that Mike Pelfrey (the other boo twin...
