Brian Schneider will be released from the hospital and should return to the Mets within a few days. He is believed to be heading home to spend a day or two with his family before rejoining the team.
In his place, Raul Casanova and Gustavo Molina have gone a combined 7-14, driving in two runs, and scoring three times.
As well as these guys have been hitting at the plate, the pitchers need Schneider back behind the plate. You can tell how good of a game he calls just by watching the pitching performances over the last few days. They haven't been terrible, but they haven't been great either.
I hope this shows the skeptical fans how valuable Schneider is to this team.
