Second round pick on display in Binghamton

Kevin Mulvey made his AA debut on Thursday night, and despite not putting up terrific numbers he was not terrible. The most likely nervous 21 year old pitched only three innings and allowed only two hits. However, Mulvey did walk two batters, and a llow a total of two runs. Mulvey also struck out four batters and allowed a home run. To read more about Mulvey check out the interview I did with Mulvey's college coach, Joe Godri.

Also of note in the game was Michael Abreu recording two hits in three at bats including a home run.

On the major leage level the Mets made a multitude of moves.
-With the addition of Shawn Green a fellow left-handed bat, Ricky Ledee, was designated for assignment.
-Next, the Mets announced that El Duque would be scratched from his next start due to soreness, which means my man, Oliver Perez, will probably get the call.
-Also, Ramon Castro was played on the 60 day disabled list, taking him off of the team's roster.
-With Castro out at least until the post-season the Mets signed ex-Yankee Kelly Stinnett who will most likely play third string to LoDuca and DiFelice down the stretch once rosters expand to 40.
-Brian Bannister will start tommorow against Randy Wolf and the Phillies.
-With Bannitser being promoted back to the majors Lastings Milledge was demoted for a week. We will see Milledge up again when the rosters expand, in the meantime expect Endy Chavez to get the bulk of playing time in leftfield.
