Roster Move: Alou Placed on 15-Day DL, Again

Sigh. I actually feel bad for Moises Alou. This is certainly not a Carl Pavano situation; Alou desperately wants to play baseball, but his body is telling him that it's time to call it quits. It's amazing that the man can hit as well as he does with a physical frame that simply no longer works properly.

Robinson Cancel will take Alou's roster spot. Jesus Christ, this guy again? Why the hell are the Mets adding a third catcher instead of an outfielder? Does anyone in this organization have the faintest idea how to put together a 25-man roster? Who does Val Pascucci have to b!*w to get a promotion!?

Let's take a look at the active roster now:

Johan Santana
John Maine
Pedro Martinez
Oliver Perez
Mike Pelfrey
Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez - DL

Billy Wagner (closer)
Duaner Sanchez
Pedro Feliciano
Aaron Heilman
Scott Schoenweis
Joe Smith
Claudio Vargas
Matt Wise - DL

Brian Schneider
Ramon Castro
Robinson Cancel

Carlos Delgado
Luis Castillo
David Wright
Jose Reyes
Damion Easley
Fernando Tatis

Carlos Beltran
Endy Chavez
Chris Aguila
Marlon Anderson
Moises Alou - DL
Ryan Church - DL
Angel Pagan - DL
