Maura Johnston, who really deserves to be associated with a proper blog, informs us that Mets 2B Anderson Hernandez has been placed on the 15 day DL with a bulging disc.
If the disc was a copy of Pissed Jeans’ ‘Shallow’, that would be great news. But alas, the disc is in Anderson’s lower back.
Inevitably, Kaz Matsui has received the call-up from Norfolk. No word if Kaz has been staying with David Wright’s parents, but he went 3 for 11 in limited action with the Tides. No errors, but he might’ve strained his neck during either of Jose Lima’s starts, watching ball after ball sail into outer space.
