Sunday Notes

Although the Internet Fanboi Scoop Press Association reports the Mets are trying to deal for Jamie Moyer (and that "all was quiet on the Yankee front" as they actually were dealing for Matt Lawton), Omar in the papers today says lots of waiver blocking out there and it's likely we'll go to the end with what we have.

Ishii is being looked at as a LOOGY -- Hamulack, Ring, Takatsu, Graves and Santiago other bullpen options once rosters expand.

Daubach, Valent and Anderson Hernandez likely call-ups offensively -- all good by me.

The Giants will be without OF Michael Tucker for today's game, but we'll see him on Tuesday -- he was traded to Philly for a Class A pitcher last nite.

Slow healing and liggybone issues could end Piazza's season, Newsday's headline implies -- IOW, nothing's certain.

Minky hit 2 doubles in FSL last night.

Why would the Mets want Jamie Moyer?

Are the Mets that desperate? We got enough pitchers. But we could use another closer. Looper sucks

I don't understand Moyer at all. . . we don't need starters, we need relievers and then batters.

Again, I ask, "what is this?" A real source?

Moyer!

We need Moyer like a hole in the head. Omar's not that dumb

The 'IFSPA' is Dickshot's name for fans with internet columns playing journalist. They often try to draw attention to themselves either by "scooping" the mainstream media by being the first to "report" breaking news, or by trumpeting various rumors into seeming like more than they really are.

Iow, virtually any reaction to this report is an over-reaction.

Whew, so he's poking fun. I was seriously worried about him losing his mind...

When Piazza says he's healing well, watch out.

When Randolph says he's not considering a 6-man rotation, pencil it in.

When Benson says his shoulder feels fine, look for starting pitchers to acquire.
