Another day, another loss. This time in Arizona. As the Mets try to avoid a sweep again on the road, we have some interesting news on the team.

Adam Rubin of the Daily News writes that Billy Wagner will be back in the bigs on Sunday. He’s agreed to waive his no-trade clause to go to a contender if the Mets can swing a deal by Aug. 31.

Matthew Artus of writes about the pro’s and con’s of releasing the entire 2003 MLB Steriod Survey Testing List. I’m just assuming almost every player was dirty between the late 80’s and beginning of this decade. Until I hear otherwise, that’s what I believe.

Gary Sheffield expressed a desire to stay with the Mets for the rest of the season but left the door open for a trade. I have no idea why he’d want to stay, this team isn’t going anywhere. If he could catch on with an AL team that needs a DH, he should jump at the chance.

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.
