cuban pitcher alay solar, has been given his citizenship in the dominican republic, so that means he should be on his way to the u.s. sometime soon, i sure hope that the mets don't also find that his age has gone from the listed age of 25-26 to 28-29, if that does happen i think that the mets should be able to void the contract under the terms of being mislead about his age. if the mets tried to sign him when he was too young mlb would of stepped in and voided the contract. you would not give a 29 yr old pitcher the same amount of money you would a 25 yr old pitcher. with that being said let's hope he can pitch as well as advertised, you can never have too much pitching.
thru 2innings the Hmets are up 2-0, carlos gomez steals his 8thbase on the yr. gabby hernandez has 3k
I thought we were the new New yorkmets, why do we have the same old cliff floyd, the talented but almost always injured cliff floyd is hurt again, he has missed the last 4 games(mets 4-0) is out with a rib cage strain, maybe he'll return on monday. trying to find cliff another team to play for has been difficult , but worth another try.

Aaron heilman pitched a wonderful game tonight, a complete game 1 hitter with 7k 3bb, the mets bullpen can use the night off, hopefully this is something heilman can build on and continue to solidify himself as a major lg starting pitcher, it's hard to believe a player drafted twice in the first round could struggle like he has .
