Roster Move: Church Finally Put on 15-Day DL

"Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow." - Mark Twain

It comes three weeks too late, but another sorry chapter in Mets history has finally come to an end. Let Church rest until the All-Star Break; if he doesn't have any symptoms for several weeks by then, maybe the team can re-activate him in mid-July. Still no word on who's taking Church's place on the roster - it could be Moises Alou or Marlon Anderson. Knowing the Mets, they'll end up activating Jose Valentin.

EDIT: It's Alou AND Anderson. Raul Casanova goes back to New Orleans, Anderson goes back to being the team's primary pinch hitter and the Mets add another black hole to their 25-man roster.

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

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

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