The Mets defeated the Nationals 2-0 on Saturday night. They are basically playing out the string once again. Here are some notes from the Mets.
Jenrry Mejia could join the rotation in September according to manager Terry Collins. He is 4-2 with a 3.01 ERA and 41 strikeouts in 27 appearances and 11 starts. He has thrown 74 2/3 innings so far this season.
Johan Santana is scheduled to pitch on Thursday right now. Terry Collins stated though that he is meeting with GM Sandy Alderson on Monday and they will make a decision then. They could still shut him down for the remainder of the season. He has been terrible ever since the no hitter in June.
The Mets have the young pitching and that is something to look forward to going forward. Matt Harvey and R.A. Dickey are reasons to watch the team and of course David Wright who the Mets have to resign. He is a homegrown Met and I think just about everyone wants him back. The ownership has to show the fan base something and resigning him would be a good step. They have to get better parts around him also but locking him up first should be the priority.
