Johan Santana starts today to extend the Mets winning streak to three straight here and six in a row overall. Santana has eight no-decisions on the season, with the Mets going 4-4 in those games. There’s little doubt he could have won 20 games with more support.
A lot going on today:
-The Mets get reliever Luis Ayala for Anderson Hernandez. Let’s not get carried away and think he’s the answer. He is 1-8 with a 5.77 ERA.
-David Wright gets the day off.
-Ryan Church left Florida for New York because of the approaching bad weather.
-Billy Wagner returned to New York to have his left elbow examined.
