This Is Getting Comical

The Mets optioned Heath Bell to AAA Norfolk to make room for the newest Met, Brian Buchanan .

"We've been battling through a period here and maybe Buchanan can provide us with some offensive spark, especially against left-handers," general manager Jim Duquette said. "We'll see if he provides some extra pop."

Look, I'm sure he is a nice guy, but do we need more people on this team that have no future here? Let's get some ABs for Vic Diaz and keep Heath Bell up to see what he can do. This is just ridiculous. Good, now we have a worse version of Shane Spencer. Anymore castoffs want to join the Mets?

Yes I realize Bell and Diaz will be up on Sept. sometime, but I'd rather have them here now instead of giving more time to useless pieces.
