Mets - DLed Koo

New York Mets - Placed P Dae-Sung Koo on the 15-day DL; Designated C Mike DiFelice for oblivion; activaed C Ramon Castro; recalled P Royce Ring.

Koo’s arm is still hurting as a result for a slide a little while back.  The Mets say that it’s bruised, which I’ll buy since they’ve been fairly honest (seem to be at least) about injuries lately.  They pretty much admitted that Trachsel was pretty much firetrucked at the start of the season; if this were the Cubs, the Tribune would be printing falsified box scores featuring Trachsel and telling people that he actually had pitched but everyone just fell asleep during the hour between every single one of his ptiches.

I'm pretty sure that Koo's injury has more to do with the fact that the Mets need a lefty after he threw 9475 pitches in his last outing and the fact the Mets want to see if Ring et al can be effective.

Sucks about Dotel. Does this and David Wright mean we definitely won the Hampton trade?

I heard Randolph blame the culture difference for Koo not coming forward after being hurt. This is on the heels of his 3-0 pitch to Delgado that people in Korea didn't know Delgado would swing at, according to Koo AND Randolph. I do expect this quote shortly:
"Well, I've found with a lot of my Asian players, there's been some adjusting to American culture. So I can understand why Koo was having sex with my wife."

Even if Mr. Koo's injury was due to the slide it was all worth it. His NYY adventure will go down as one of the most improbable feats in Mets lore. He's a folk hero.

Designated C Mike DiFelice for oblivion

That's what they call Norfolk these days?

OK, anyone who hates Rick Peterson is certainly entitled to their opinion. But you have to admit, this is a great story, from Vic Ziegel's column in the Daily News this morning:

[T]here was a relief pitcher at Oakland who fell apart in one game. Peterson remembers spending six or seven hours, behind closed doors, to restore the poor guy's sanity.

Until the next time he was on the mound, in a tight spot. For no logical reason, the pitcher walked over to the first baseman for a little chat. Peterson, who didn't like what he was seeing, hustled out of the dugout to join the conversation. "'Rick,' he told me, 'I can't feel my legs.' "

At that point, the coach is asked to earn a lot more than his salary. Somehow, Peterson put a smile on his face. "Fortunately," he said, "we don't need a field goal."


Priceless.

While I certainly understand the frustration at times about Peterson, I really do think he's been a plus. He, like Randolph, seems to keep his cool and I like the way he interacts with the pitchers on the mound. I just wish he'd get over his feud with Jae Seo.

...according to Rick Peterson.

Disaster struck, however, when Peterson attempted to amputate and then re-attach the pitcher's legs in only ten minutes.

"...then the poor young man tottered out to the mound where John Kruk surmised that Peterson must be drunk to put in such an obviously injured pitcher..."
