Tip of the hat to Beltran. He was very good for the Mets before the injuries. Got too much grief from the fans, even before that nasty curveball that broke our hearts.

Yeah, the Mets were wise to ship him out. Glad he went to SF instead of Boston.

Terrific play by alderson... shop him around demanding certain players to multiple contenders, stay patient when they say no and wait for one of them to bite.

Apparently SF walked away from the trade talks last week because the Mets wouldn't take anyone but Wheeler.

Same here. Boston doesn't need him.

Yep. Great job by him. Wheeler is a great return.

Where's Ubaldo going to end up?

Mike Cameron of all people just homered in back to back innings.

I love series against the Nationals. No matter how bad the Marlins are, we always walk all over them. Especially in Washington.

By the way, with the players to be named later, the Rasmus deal might end up not being as bad as it looks for the Cardinals. The Blue Jays probably win the deal still. If they can wrangle a Reyes, Pujols, or Fielder and a TOR starter this offseason, they're going to surprise some people next year methinks.

I love Mike Cameron. Great, great, great defender in his heyday.

If they were to add Pujols or Fielder and a TOR starter, they wouldn't be surprising anyone unless they were to lose 90+ games.

But they won't get either Pujols or Fielder, so not to worry.

Go figure... Mike Cameron basically won the Fish that game with those HRs! Scary ending to the game... last out was about 3 feet from being a HR that would've made a 6 run comeback in the bottom of the 9th.

And Javy Vazquez is pitching good. What's going on?

Umpires are terrible at their job.
While I agree many umps do suck, big assist goes to Josh bard for doing everything in his power to make that pitch look like a ball.

Haha I was thinking that as well. Way to spot the pitch really low by pulling it down and then bringing it back up.

The way Alex A. is going for them, I wouldn't be surprised if they landed a TOR starter in a trade. And as for one of those 1B, they have money to spend. Might as well spend it on someone to hit next to Joey Bats.

Johnson out for the season. Went from day to day on a sore shoulder on a first place team to out for the season, even after everything turning up good looking on the MRIs. I don't get it... what's wrong?

They can't possibly be simply 'shutting him down'. They did that last year... is he just going to be a protected asset for the rest of his career? He's the reason why we're out of contention right now (or rather, the team without him is the reason).

Question: would you still take him over Felix?
