It's been a while since I've given updates on my non-Mets favorites. So, let's do that now.
Mike Nickeas has spent the season with the B-Mets. With Omir Santos injured he's been the everyday catcher. He had the night off yesterday but for the season is batting .314, with 2 home runs, 21 RBIs, and 1 stolen base. It's really nice to see he has finally had a good season with the bat, as he always has been know for his defense.
Joe Smith recently came back from AAA and has been doing well. Since returning on June 22 he has only had 1 rough outing, when he gave up 3 runs against the Reds. Seven of his appearances since his call-up have been spotless. In his last outing on Monday night he earned the win with 1.2 scoreless innings in which he had 3 strikeouts.
Xavier Nady hasn't gotten much playing time now that the Cubs aren't playing in AL parks with the DH. Grady Sizemore had micro-fracture knee surgery and is out for the season. Jacoby Ellsbury had his ribs broken by Adrian Beltre and his still on the DL.
There isn't too much going on.
