Niese Down, Figgy Up

After the game Adam Rubin is reporting that the Mets have sent Jonathan Niese to triple-A Buffalo after his 5 run, 4 2/3 innings in today’s game. Rubin says that the Mets will replace Niese with Nelson Figueroa. Rubin also said that he would not be surprised if the Mets activate Tim Redding from the DL for Monday’s game.

I know Niese didn’t pitch very well but I like him.I was a little busy today so I didn’t really get to watch him pitch but I think he could get another start.

Pick’em Fridays, NFL Draft, Figgy

First off I would like to say that in the Pick’em Fridays Challenge on the Mc Effect, I am now in first place at 64%.

Also I should probably tell you that I am as well as a huge Mets fan I am also a big Jets fan once baseball season ends. I am now watching the NFL Draft and am happy with the Jets pick of Mark Sanchez.
In completely unrelated news, Nelson Figueroa has agreed to go to triple-A Buffalo after testing the free agent market and found no major league jobs open.
As Gary Cohen was saying during the game today, he probably read the New York newspapers and blogs saying that the Mets might be looking for another starter with everyone struggling. 

Well Pelfrey wasn’t struggling today.

If you are yet to guess on todays trivia then you can find it here.
The guesses that are already made could be wrong
so make your guess anyway.
It could be from a different game.

Daily Scouting Report: Nelson Figueroa

Yesterday, the Mets said that Pelfrey will not make his start and Nelson Figueroa will. Originally the Mets said it might be Jonathan Niese or Dillon Gee but they decided against it because the Brewers have a lot of right hand hitters and Niese and Gee are left handers while Figueroa is a righty.
Figueroa, age 34, is 0-0 in 2 starts for the Bisons with a ERA of 3.00. Last year in the minors he was 4-7 with a 4.43 ERA.
Last year in the majors, he was 3-3 with a 4.57 ERA. In his major league career, he is 10-20 with a 4.67 ERA. Here are some pictures:
