Even though we kinda crapped out after the all star break, nice to see that it's not us selling the farm this year :)

Apparently Ryan Dempster went to the Yankees. Sandy Alderson is in Flushing having some bubble tea. Neither a buyer nor a seller be.

I think Pelfrey has a spot in next years rotation (you ain't gonna be able to trade 'em coming off Tommy John). I don't think we'll see Wheeler in NY till 2014 prolly.

Also, while Harvey had himself a great first game, it'll be interesting to see how effective he is after a few more games. Few more games and teams will have enough footage of him pitching for players to start making adjustments as to how they are swinging against 'em. The real test will be whether or not Harvey's able to adjust to the hitter's adjustments.

Wheeler is scheduled for Sunday's start, according to Adam Ruebin. He tweeted this earlier today.

Pelfrey is a free agent after this year, although we may tender his Arbitration. Otherwise he is gone.

I thought IASW said Wheeler is moving up to Buffalo, not to the majors yet.

(and according to baseball-reference.com Pelf isn't a free agent till 2014)

Wheeler's not even on the 40-man roster, so we won't see him pitch until spring training unless SNY shows a Bisons game.

But ... Jeurys Familia, Jennry Mejia, Zach Lutz, and Reese Havens are, and we should see them in September as the Mets play out the ... er ... come down the stretch.

He is arbitration eligible. Will we tender him? If we do not tender him, then he is a free agent.

He only signed a one year deal for 5.8 ish before last season.

I am ok with moving on from Big Pelf.

Word from Adam Ruebin:

Wheeler will not be in majors this year, due to innings limit if for no other reason. Should be shut down around end of August. Limit is 165.

Word is that Dickey will be pitching on 3 days rest for most of the remaining games. I worry about the old guy holding up. If he can perform well under these conditions and not get hurt. I am ok with extending him. If not, you know how I feel about 40 year old baseball players.

Santana should be back next week.

Why are we overusing Dickey from here on in instead of running out a cast of youngns for a cup of coffee? They're surely not attempting to make the playoffs, right? Because if they break Dickey, I'm buying one of those steak sandwiches and throwing it at Sandy Alderson.

That does seem to be the case. Try and make one last push.

Although I agree. Dickey is old for a baseball player, even with the knuckle ball.

For anyone in the area who might be interested: Santana is making a rehab start with the Cyclones tomorrow (8/5) @ 5PM at MCU Park in Brooklyn. Unfortunately, I can't go. :sad:

If you're free, do it. Its a really nice little stadium and a fun place to see a game. And WAY cheaper than Citifield. :lol:

Look away if you do not yet believe Miggy would be a great addition to this team.

Stats, Almost a triple crown.
2012: 29 HR (2nd), .326 BA (2nd), 95 RBI (1st)


• Miguel Cabrera had another great day, and the Tigers won; Drew Sharp believes he is crushing others in the MVP race. Cabrera has 95 RBIs. From ESPN Stats & Information: Cabrera's home run came on an inside pitch, his league-leading 19th on a pitch in that area of the zone. Here is where he is ranked:

Miguel Cabrera: 19
Ryan Braun: 16
David Ortiz: 12
Mark Trumbo: 12

Nah, things will get better. We knew this was going to happen if they didn't address their issues. They slumped, front office decided to put it in their pocket and wait til next year at the trade deadline. Looking like the sage decision.

Oh look. Another catcher who can't hit:


The Mets acquired catcher Kelly Shoppach from the Red Sox on Tuesday for a player to be named later.

The Mets placed a waiver claim on the 32-year-old catcher from Fort Worth, Texas. Shoppach, who has spent his entire eight-year career in the American League, batted .250 with five home runs, 12 doubles and 17 RBIs in 48 games for Boston this season.

Shoppach has a career .227 batting average with the Indians, Rays and Red Sox. He belted a career-high 21 home runs for Cleveland in 2008.

In 2009, despite playing in just 89 games, Shoppach was hit by a pitch 18 times, which led the AL.

I was puzzled when my Twitter timeline blew up earlier today. Speaking of catchers, last night I saw Nickeas make a nice tag at home after Den Dekker played the carom off the wall and hit the cutoff man, who threw a strike home.

So, who is Shoppach and why do the Mets need another catcher?

I don't get it. He must be a bargaining chip. Someone on the roster is the PTBNL, then they'll deal Shoppach.
