Nick Evans Called Up To Replace Anderson

The Mets have called up 1B/OF Nick Evans, the 22 year old 1B/OF from Binghamton to replace Marlon Anderson, who suffered a hamstring injury last night. Evans is batting .292 with 5 HR and 31 RBI for AA Binghamton this season.

Raise your hand if you think Evans will get little playing time from Willie and when Evans eventually does play, he will have a good game only to have Willie throw cold water on his performance during the postgame press conference.

Evans becomes the 4th former Brooklyn Cyclone to play for the Mets this season. Joe Smith, Angel Pagan, and Claudio Vargas have also logged time for the Mets this season.

Prior to this season, I do not recall more than one former Cyclone playing for the big club at the same time. This season, as many 3 Brooklyn alums have been on the Mets at the same time.

  1. I loved the comment about throwing water on his performance. You know that will be the case if he keeps his job past Monday. He is not one of “Willie’s Guys.” I know we need him as an outfielder but how about platooning him and Delgado? I know it will never happen but this is how you get younger and experienced.

  2. right on – i think someone has to tell Willie *this is your guy, use him*
    I wish I didn’t care so much, but I do

  3. You could have a career as a fortune teller, Corey, because today that Magic Moment happened — Willie pulling Evans in favor of Church, who by own admission was feeling woozy before the game today.

    Even the usually right on target Keith Hernandez praised the move, but I thought it was, well, Willie all the way… jingle bells, jingle bells, Willie all the way….

    And how long did it take? Exactly two games. That’s right — two games.
