Any hopes the Mets had of trading Scott Erickson are now gone, as the 36 year old pitcher looking to make a comeback has already found himself on the DL. At least David Cone made it through a few starts. Erickson could not even make it to his first scheduled start when he strained his left hamstring warming up before the game. The Mets should of dealt him at the end of spring training when his value was at its height. Now they're stuck with him. One positive, or negative depending on your outlook, is that Jae Seo has been recalled from Norfolk to serve as a long man coming out of the bullpen.
