I wonder if the Mets have forgotten about Elvin Ramirez...

I was thinking the same thing.....I bet they will have to trade cash or something for him once he proves he is fit...recall this happened a few year back with a kid from the Reds....I got his autograph at Spring Training and sat with him at lunch once...oh hell I will look it up....Terrell Young...

I am think I will burn some miles this fall and catch a some games.....FL out there...any thoughts on best weekend to do this? I will buy you a beer.....

Anybody know the condition of McGeary? I know that he is getting over TJ, but has he appeared in any minor league games, or is this his first real action?
