He's coming up, per Marc Carig (just look to the right).

I assume they will just make a 60 move since they are at 40. Obviously many candidates.

Wilmer was announced out for the season, so . . . that's probably it. I'm not much of an Evans believer, but make no mistake. It's very cool that he's up and I'll watch him with interest.

I wish him more success than Taijeron.

At the beginning of spring training, I remember seeing Evans make a few nice plays at 3rd and thinking "he looks the part."

Then he had an at bat where somebody (here? who I was watching with? I can't remember) said he looked like a Fat Ruben Tejada stance/swing wise, and I've had trouble shaking that comp now.

He'll probably turn into the next Matt Reynolds. In 4 years we'll be asking who he has pictures of in the Met front office.

But I will hope for the best as I usually do.

In 4 years we'll be wondering if they both have the same pictures.

Matt probably plays a better SS, but I've not seen Evans in the field, so not 100% sure. Evans is small, from what I remember, listed 5'10 but closer to 5'8. Not that 5'8 means he can't make it, but I don't think he'll look like Matt Reynolds, who, I think, is basically the SS version of Kirk Niewenheis (sp?). Physically, Matt Reynolds looks like a baseball player to me, he's just not quite good enough at contact and that's a pretty important thing.

Everybody to the 60. Then have a 60 day DL party. Promote all of Vegas to fill in.

I'm half kidding ofcourse. Guys like Nimmo & Plaw & Cheech & probably that Aoki guy need to play, but everyone else - to the 60. It's miller time.

Miller should come out with a beer and call it the "60" in honor of the NY Mets.

Why Cabrera? He's only dtd supposedly. No shortage of other 60 candidates... Flo, Matz, Wheels, TJR, Scooter, etc

Didn't realize Cabrera was only dtd. Thought is was a hammy that would shut him down the rest of the year. His name was freshest on my mind so...
