Adding to the Mets' tight turnaround between last night's game and this morning: Dominic Smith and one other Met were randomly drug tested late Wednesday. Smith didn't really have to pee, so he chugged water while his teammates waited close to an hour for him to do the deed.

i don't think he ever did? he got 113 plate appearances last year over four separate big league stints, which is a tough situation for most anyone

that said, he almost has to hit this well to offset his defense -- a perfect met

mookieproof, Thursday, 22 August 2019 18:45 (three days ago) link

fair point on the 4 stints, but when they got him i looked at the stats and just thought "someone the Astros couldn't fix". i guess they didn't try hard enough.

a Mets fan who gave up on everything in the mid '80s (Dr Morbius), Thursday, 22 August 2019 18:58 (three days ago) link

i think it's less that they didn't try than that they're so loaded there was no room for him

they also gave up on a.j. reed, but i don't think he's gonna make a comeback. not really a good sign when you're a two-time minor league homer champ

Callaway said "it's really hard to say" if Edwin Diaz's trap tightness is something that could land him on the injured list.

Diaz was far more upbeat about the issue, saying he's not worried about it and doesn't consider it serious at all.
