In case you missed it, D.J. Carrasco is back with the Mets after some injury issues and a short stint in AAA. I’m sure you are pleased upon hearing this news. The great mystery, of course, is what angle — or angles — will we see Carrasco pitch from? Is it going to be overhand, [...]
Well that didn’t take long … Captain Kirk Nieuwenhuis has been beamed up from Buffalo to take over the roster spot vacated by non-vulcan Andres Torres. Terry Collins has suggested that Nieuwenhuis will be used in a platoon situation, which makes zero sense to me. Thoughts?
According to EspnNewYork.com’s Adam Rubin, Mets‘ outfielder Jason Pridie and utility-player Nick Evans cleared waivers on Friday and are officially free agents may opt for free agency.

Sometimes, good news comes early — such as in this case: the Mets have announced their first big free-agent signing of the offseason, by re-upping lefthanded one-out specialist Tim Byrdak. To me this is curious news, for a few reasons.
The New York Mets 1986 second base platoon will reprise their roles for a few weeks this month. Triple AAA Buffalo manager Tim Teufel will join the coaching staff this Friday and will stay until September 18th.
