The Mets won in LA last night, 9-5 as Mike Piazza finally belted his 351st home run to tie Carlton Fisk for most career home runs by a catcher. Shane Spencer and Todd Zeille hit homers too as the Mets scored more runs than in their last 6 games.
- What am I looking forward to tonight? I hope to see Piazza hit a home run to pass Fisk for sole possession of the top spot on the all time list of home runs by catcher. Making it even sweeter would be if he could do it against his Dodger nemesis Guillermo Mota.
- Good news on Jose Reyes. He went 3 for 5 with 2 stolen bases in an extended spring training game on Monday. He was scheduled to play a rehab game with St. Lucie yesterday but didn’t play because of rain. If the weather cooperates then he will play today and could return this weekend in San Diego this weekend.
- It’s still not clear if Cliff Floyd will play any rehab games but all signs appear to point to a return in San Diego.
- Scott Erickson will pitch 5 innings for St. Lucie today as part of his rehab. No news on when he will return to the Mets.
