I’ve been saying for a week now that Cliff Floyd should go on the DL. If I were to guess, and considering the Mets aren’t saying much that’s the way to go, I would say it will happen Monday when Xavier Nady is ready to come off the DL.
They should have done this a while ago, and quite simply, they are lucky this hasn’t come back to bite them in the rear.
