Today is the last day to add a player in a waiver deal to have him eligible for the postseason roster. The Mets are bringing up an infielder today, possibly Edgardo Alfonzo. Can’t see them going outside the organization for anything major.
My sports editor mentioned David Wells and I got a cold shiver. Don’t want him anywhere close to the Mets. Just not a good guy to deal with.
Oliver Perez going for the Mets tonight. High octane arm with control problems. But, being lefthanded, he’s intriguing and it will be he who decides whether the Xavier Nady deal was a good one. Willie Randolph talks about Perez in terms of next season. Control is too erratic for a bullpen spot in the postseason.
