Mets like Wang? You don't say? In other Mets news, Jose Reyes was scratched yesterday due to abnormal tests from his pre-season physical. I just assumed he was pregnant but word today is that he may have an overactive thyroid. First they sign Hisanori Takahashi, now they get Hashimoto Reyes. Zing! Nothing better than thyroid humor.
The Marlins are in the running to sign free agent corner infielder/DH Hank Blalock. If Blalock joins the Marlins, he could play significant innings at first or be their primary pinch-hitter, at least until June, when Blalock will go on the Disable List forthe rest of the season.
Why even talk about the Nationals. They don't even have a beat writer in Florida. Yet somehow, there is a new Stephen Strasburg story every day.
Odds for the first Braves player to go on the DL:
Wagner - Even
Glaus - 3:2
Saito - 2:1
Chipper - 4:1
Hudson - 6:1
Anybody else - 4:1
