Let It ROLL, Baby, Roll.....

...let it ROLL, baby roll... all month long!

The Mets have now gotten another six pack, and are in the midst of another nice win streak; not to be redundant, or anything, but it's six in a row as of today. Of course, they've played the Nationals, who don't even belong in AAA, less in MLB, and the Pirates, who ought to stick to the high seas, but hey, considering that this team has, in the past, truly played down to its competition, all things considered, I think the recent win streak is well worth noting and remembering.

In other news, the Mets acquired Luis Ayala from the aforesaid lowly Gnats for Anderson Hernandez, who, let's face it, was never going to do anything here at the major league level. Ayala hasn't had a wildly successful year, but who knows what a change of scenery may bring? And with Billy Wagner continuing to ail, the bullpen situation is still in some turmoil, despite its recent successes. The competition's going to get tougher, and we need all the help we can get.

Is anybody less excited than me about the soon-to-come return of Luis Castillo to the big team? I just can't get all worked up and excited over the old guy's return, sorry. And I'll believe it when I see it, anyway.

Game time today 12:30, LET'S GET THE SWEEP, BOYS!
