The Mets lost Friday, won Saturday and lost yesterday against the Angels. They were off today, and they’ll begin a three-game series against the A’s in Citi Field starting Tuesday night.
According to multiple reports, David Wright played catch for the first time on field Sunday, while also fielding ground balls from his knees. Wright is recovering from a stress fracture in his lower back, and said he will see a doctor later this week in hopes of being cleared to begin rehabbing in St. Lucie.
“It’s day-by-day,” Wright explained. “I just have to wait it out and make sure the bone heals correctly before I start amping it up. … Hopefully I’ll be ready to go after I get that clearance.”
Saturday, Jose Reyes told reporters that, despite a brief meeting with Scott Boras, there is “no chance” he will leave his current agents. That is a little bit of good news for the Mets, I still believe he will get traded this season though and if not he will become a free agent. I don't see anyway the Mets can keep him.
Before the game, fans, players and ex-teammates signed a giant Get Well card for Gary Carter. That is really nice, it is so sad what he is going through. The Mets need a good series against the A's, they need to start winning at home and making a run at over 500, then they can start thinking wild card. They have been fun to watch and they have hung in there but at some point they need to really get something going not win two lose two, win one, lose one.
