Transplanted Ex-Met Update - Preston Wilson Signs With Cardinals

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.

Back From The Beach

I picked a good time to go on vacation. Although the Mets managed to take two of three from the Washington Expos over the weekend, they also lost Pedro to the DL and promptly lost three straight to the Philadelphia Wiphebeaters. Thankfully they won this afternoon 7-2, avoiding the four game sweep and just in time for me to resume my regular blogging activities. Blogging will begin to be a bit of achallenge, as I started graduate school two nights a week, this week, but I'll be counting on my TiVo to keep me in tune with the Mets.

The Mets Magic Number is 30.

Lets Go Mets!
