Mets Merized Online:
The Mets have placed Ramon Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list with a strained hamstring. Miguel Batista has been activated from the disabled list, and will take Ramirez’s place on the active roster.
Ramirez was the key player in the deal that sent Angel Pagan to San Francisco and was part of the revamped bullpen the Mets focused their effort and financial resources in the offseason.
The right-hander has appeared in 22 games this season and has a 4.78 ERA and 1.56 WHIP for the Mets.
Additionally, the Mets officially promoted RHP Chris Young from Triple-A Buffalo and added him to the 40 man roster. To make room for Young, the Mets have designated RHP Jack Egbert for assignment.
Egbert, 29, appeared in one game for the Mets and registered two quick outs. The Staten Island native was 2-3 with a 2.08 ERA in 26 innings pitched for Triple-A Buffalo this season.

The Mets have a lot of pitchers in their system that seem to succeed despite being later draft picks. Collin McHugh is one such example. Drafted in the 18th round of the 2008 draft, McHugh left college for the big leagues.
When I look back at McHugh’s time with the Mets it’s hard for me to find too much to fault. He signed quickly and played in Rookie Ball back in 2008...
Round 1: Gavin Cecchini – There are quite a few Met fans who are angry with this decision. The Mets could have gone after Hawkins or Giolito… but I think that Gavin actually fits pretty well into the Met’s farm system. Obviously, the Mets are not gifted with a plethora of SS options in their minors (the draft will prove this point) as Ruben Tejada is the MLB short-stop...
Jon Rauch has debris in his elbow, and will miss this series against the Nationals, according to Adam Rubin ESPN New York.
The Mets will not currently place him on the DL.
Honestly, not a huge loss at this point. However, it’s one less pitcher in your bullpen, and Mets starting pitchers aren’t going to go 7+ innings everyday. So it’s critically important that Rauch gets healthy...
Last night, the Mets announced that comedian Bill Maher is now a new limited partner with the Mets after purchasing a minority stake in the team.
“I think it’s a great investment,” Maher said. “I think it’s a great team that I’ve been rooting for since they came into existence, which was soon after I came into existence.”

How can a moment like this not bring a die-hard Mets fan to tears?
One of my all-time favorite sports movies is “A League of Their Own”, which chronicled the installation of women’s baseball during World War 2 in order to keep the nation’s spirits up while many of the professional men’s players were away fighting. From reading a little about the actual history, the movie...

NEW YORK -- The New York Mets got another impressive pitching performance by their starter, but the St. Louis Cardinals countered with a better one, allowing their slumping offense to find itself in a late comeback win. The Cardinals bullpen then barely held off the Mets as St. Louis salvaged the final game of the four-game series with a 5-4 win Monday. The Mets trailed 5-3 after...
