Bart Hubbach of the NY Post is reporting that Moises Alou is likely to go on the disabled list with the left calf strain that took him out of yesterday’s game.

Raul Casanova is on his way to Atlanta to join the team to replace Alou on the roster. Willie Randolph noted that Casanova can also play first base.

Tonight’s corner outfielders will be Marlon Anderson in left and Endy Chavez in right. Ryan Church is still recovering from the mild concussion that he suffered when he collided with Yunel Escobar at second base.

Having Casanova on the roster will be nice to free up the Mets to pinch hit Ramon Castro or use him in double switch situations.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
