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:
Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez - DL
Billy Wagner (closer)
Matt Wise - DL
Ryan Church - DL
Angel Pagan - DL
