Something Big Going Down in Flushing?
The Mets pulled two of their top prospects, Fernando Martinez and Phillip Humber, from their games today. Martinez was lifted after one at bat while Humber, who was the scheduled starter, was replaced by Adam Bostick. It's probably a coincidence, but those on the Mets message board are predictably jumping to conclusions and there is now a lot of buzz involving Dontrelle Willis. Eh. He is more name than numbers at this point. Assuming it's a zero sum game, I'd much rather make a run at Carlos Zambrano than the inconsistent D-Train.
