Williams' Return Provides More Questions than Answers

I'm sure in Dave Williams' fantasies, his first start since returning from the neck injury would solidify his spot on the roster. After giving up 8 runs while failing to make it out of the fourth, it will be interesting to see what the Mets decide to do with Williams, who is out of minor league options.

Complicating matters some is that Aaron Sele, who seemed to be on the express train out of town a week or so back, has pitched well his last few times out. This includes a strong 2-2/3 innings Sunday in relief of Williams.

For the Mets, a chance to win a series and build a little positive momentum heading into the break went up in smoke by the fourth inning. In a way, I guess that's fitting. The last week of the season featured a nice 3 of 4 over the Phillies, a disastrous 3 games in Denver, and finished with an indecisive split in Houston. The mystery of what the 2007 Mets really are continues.

About Mike: I was the original writer on this web site, actually its only writer for the first 15 months of existence. Although I am grateful for the excellent contributions of my fellow writers here, I have no plans of stepping back into strictly an editorial role. I started this thing in the first place because I love to write and I love the Mets, and blogging here keeps me somewhat sane. If you haven't had enough already, more bio info can be found here.

At this point I think Williams is more likely to be the answer to a trivia question than to the Mets' pitching needs.

You might be right, but I liked the way he pitched aggressively last season and thought he might be a fit for the Darren Oliver role.
