Another Stop on the Fossum Trail

After 3 appearences with the Mets, posting a 2.25 ERA in the process, Casey Fossum was DFA'd by the Mets to make room for 40 year old rookie Ken Takahashi. Now, I'm hoping Takahashi pitches very well for the Mets, and his first appearence against Philadelphia was impressive following another pathetic Oliver Perez start (which now has Perez headed to the bullpen to be a $12 million long reliever). But this is a sad time for me as a Casey Fossum fan. He was quickly snatched up off waivers by the evil Yankees across town. He made his first start at AAA Scranton on Saturday afternoon, pitching well against the Norfolk Tides. Saddest of all: I was at the Scranton-Norfolk game on Friday night, but did not find out until today (Monday) that Fossum had signed on there. Otherwise, I definitely would have at least gone and seen him pitch. Very sad. Very, very sad. Maybe another time this summer...

Go Blade!
