Fossum File

There hasn't been much positive to say about the Mets thus far this season, so I figured I'd give a more uplifting post that's relevant to one of the main themes of this blog:

Casey Fossum has started one game so far for AAA Buffalo. In a no-decision, Fossum tossed 5 innings of scoreless ball while allowing 2 hits and 2 walks. He also struck out 3. With Pelfrey ineffective and possibly injured, and Perez and Maine both inconsistent, is it terribly unreasonable to believe Fossum could break the big league rotation this season? Granted, he's probably behind Jon Niese, Dillon Gee, and even Elmer Dessens on the organizational depth chart, but...... stranger things have happened. The '06 Mets who won the division used over a dozen starting pitchers during the season. So why not? The jersey I have will actually make sense then -- assuming he keeps his number 47 from Spring Training.
