All that optimism generated from the Mets’ lastÂ West Coast trip has been reduced to avoid the sting of being swept at Shea this week. To their rescue rides Coin Flip Perez.
The weather is hot and muggy now, with the rain expected in a couple of hours. There will be some sitting time today.
From the pregame:
-Ryan Church is activated and Trot Nixon placed on the disabled list with a strained groin.
-Nothing official on Moises Alou’s return. He’s supposed to play in a rehab game tomorrow or the next day with the hope of being ready by the Philadelphia series next weekend.
