Mets Game Notes
I was sitting in traffic on the Long Island Expressway during the bulk of this contest, so didn’t see the action.
Bartolo Colon was perfect through six and and two-thirds, retiring 20 batters until Robinson Cano reached on a single. Could Colon have performed better in one of his last auditions before the trading deadline? Did he impress the Mariners enough for them to consider plucking him from the waiver wire in August?
I heard that Ruben Tejada was beaned in the fifth and had to leave the ballgame. He was also hit by a pitch on Tuesday. Are the baseball gods sending a message? How many more times does Tejada have to be struck before the Mets consider adding a real, actual backup middle infielder to the roster? Though, from the boxscore it appears that Eric Campbell did not make an error in his four innings at shortstop, so I guess that means he’s capable.
