Brad Emaus appears to be the front runner at second base for the Mets after they optioned Justin Turner to Triple-A Buffalo. New York’s spring standout joined WFAN’s Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts on Wednesday to talk about the job.
This is the day many Mets fans have been clamoring for. New York released oft-maligned second baseman Luis Castillo on Friday.
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson admits he’s baffled by all the attention surrounding Luis Castillo and Oliver Perez. “It’s a little odd,” he said. But is it really?
There was a published report on Tuesday suggesting that Luis Hernandez would be named the Mets’ second baseman when all was said and done. Terry Collins labeled that premature, and continued to talk up the elder Luis Castillo.
Not thrilled with his four-headed choice for second base, Mets manager Terry Collins is “preparing” to name Luis Hernandez, a relative unknown, as his opening day starter, according to the NY Post.
Celebrate good times! Terry Collins is ready to name a Luis as his starting second baseman, and it’s not Luis Castillo.
Tim Hudson snapped a three-start losing streak and Nate McLouth homered and drove in two runs, giving the Atlanta Braves’ playoff push another boost with a 4-2 victory over the New York Mets on Saturday.
