Adam Rubin of the Daily News writes that Tim Redding's roster spot is safe for now.
This makes sense seeing as how the Mets are extremely thin on pitching depth at this point. Redding may have been effective this season, but you can't argue that the guy can eat innings.
Brian Costa of the Star Ledger wonders if the lack of quality baseball by the Mets will hurt their attendance over the last few months of the season.
I'm not sure this is the case. The feeling I've gotten amongst fans is not that of a lack of interest. Most fans I've come across still enjoy talking about the Mets, but there's a lot of anger out there towards what may be a lost season.
Ken Davidoff of Newsday touches on Luis Castillo's bounce back year and what the Mets will do before the July 31 deadline.
It is going to be very interesting and this series against the Rockies will determine a lot of what the Mets do. I expect them to not be very busy at all, but if they were able to sweep the Rockies, they would be 3.5 games out of the wild card.
Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog talks about how the next 28 games will determine the season.
I've seen more positive things said about the Mets today than I did in the last month and a half. People have been angry, but people also want to find any sort of hope that this team will turn it around. This week's series is a big first step.
