    I wonder if the Mets have forgotten about Elvin Ramirez…

    I was thinking the same thing…..I bet they will have to trade cash or something for him once he proves he is fit…recall this happened a few year back with a kid from the Reds….I got his autograph at Spring Training and sat with him at lunch once…oh hell I will look it up….Terrell Young…I am think I will burn some miles this fall and catch a some games…..FL Nat…you out there…any thoughts on best weekend to do this? I will buy you a beer…..

    Anybody know the condition of McGeary? I know that he is getting over TJ, but has he appeared in any minor league games, or is this his first real action?
