According to the AP, recently released Preston Wilson has been picked up by the St. Louis Cardinals. His agent had spoken to the Mets about rejoining the team he came up with, but it looks like the Cards wanted him more. Oh well. It would have been nice to have Mookie's nephew/stepson on the 2006 mets, 20 years after Mookie drove in teh game winning RBI in the 1986 World Series, but it's not meant to be.
The Wilson-less Mets start a nine game home stand tonight with a three game set against the Colorado Rockies.
