1. Oliver Perez DL’d with right knee patella tendonitis.
It’s bull and we all know it. But anything that gets Perez to the DL and hopefully thoroughly through the minor leagues, while (again, hopefully) improving his ability as a pitcher is a good thing. Unlikely, but a good thing.
Jon Niese took Ollie’s roster spot.
2. Mets win 4-3 on Friday night.
R.A. Dickey is awesome. Three runs and seven hits over seven innings. I like it. He also went 2-3 at the plate, driving in one and scoring once.
3. Mets win 6-1 on Saturday afternoon.
Niese came back from the DL and was awesome. Seven innings, allowing just the one run. Ike Davis went 4-4, scoring three times. David Wright went 2-3 with three RBI, including a monster two-run blast off the Acela Club.
The Mets go for the sweep at home today at 1:10 p.m.
