Well, maybe not. Even though the Mets haven't made any trades or fired any coaches, there is definitely news this afternoon.
Jason Bay has a concussion. Obviously he didn't feel any symptoms over the weekend, or he wouldn't have played. The signs showed up on the plane home. Nothing you can do about that. He'll be reevaluated in a few days. If he's put on the disabled list it'll likely be Jesus Feliciano getting the call-up.
The Jason Bay injury pretty much cancels any chance of Jeff Francoeur being traded. The Royals reportedly had no interest in the deal anyway. And on the Royals end of the deal, the Gil Meche - Oliver Perez part of the deal wouldn't have worked with Meche requiring shoulder surgery.
Let's Go Mets!
Oh yeah. Jerry Manuel won't be managing the Mets tonight.
No. He wasn't fired (yet). He was suspended for arguing with the umpire over a call in Friday night's game. Replays showed the umpire made the wrong call, but I guess that doesn't matter.
