Maybe It Will Happen

Mike Nickeas has gone 0-for-4 in his past two games.  I was so excited about  a possible call-up and then he stops hitting.  I began to think the call-up wasn't going to happen.  Thankfully, this morning that feeling has gone away.  I wasn't sure how much playing time Mike would get when he first moved to the Bisons.  Today it was nice reading this:
When the Mets promote a third catcher in September, Mike Nickeas could be a feel-good story if he gets the nod over major league veterans J.R. House and Michael Barrett. A solid defensive catcher who was acquired from the Texas Rangers for Victor Diaz on Aug. 30, 2006, Nickeas had been a career .231 minor league hitter before this season. Nickeas, benefiting from injuries to catchers Omir SantosShawn Riggans and Luke Montz, hit .283 with five homers and 33 RBIs in 82 games with the B-Mets this season. He was promoted to Buffalo, made his first appearance last Wednesday and was tabbed as the Bisons’ No. 1 catcher.

I'm not really sure what my reaction to his call-up will be.  I really chose a random minor league player to follow and it's awesome that he could possibly be in the majors this month.

For now, the Mets called up Lucas Duda and Jenrry Mejia.

Let's Go Mets!
