Bannister Goes on the DL, Beltran Doesn't

The Mets have decided to play it safe with Brian Bannister's hamstring and put him on the DL. I think this is a good move. He'll only miss a couple of starts if he's ready to pitch when he's eligible to come off the DL. You just don't want to mess around with a pitcher's legs.

The Mets are using the roster spot that this move created for Victor Diaz. I still expect to see them make another move with a pitcher next week, whether it's a starter like Maine or a reliever like Heath Bell is Darren Oliver gets the start. (I think it's safe to say that Yusaku Iriki is no longer an option.) No telling on this one though, obviously either Diaz or someone else has to go down in order to do that. We'll be watching this next week.

Speaking of Darren Oliver, here's a nice feature on him for those curious to learn a little more about him.

Today on the Willie Randolph Report on Dumb and Dumber's show on WFAN, Willie indicated that he would be "disappointed" if Carlos Beltran didn't start tonight's game.
