Comings and Goings
Here are some of my quick thoughts on the potential Kaz Ishii deal...

Yesterday, the Mets cut Joe McEwing. The clubhouse, especially David Wright, was very sad to see him go.
You won't see any anti-Joe McEwing statements here. He's not a great ballplayer and his "skill" of playing multiple positions doesn't make him valuable if he's not any good at any of those positions (offensively or defensively), but he seems like a good enough guy and if the Mets gave you a chance to play baseball, you would take it too.
I hope he lands on his feet nicely somewhere. It was just about time that he left the Mets...

So, Steve Trachsel is out. The replacement? It seems to be Matt Ginter. Ginter seems like he'll be able to pitch comparably numbers-wise, but I'm a little scared out about how deep into games he can go, especially with Victor Zambrano the pitcher before him in the rotation.
Buy hey, at least Trachsel won't get his option year.

Not So Super
Chris Woodward in means... Joe McEwing out?...
With Cairo and Woodward apparent locks to make the team, the Mets have no spot for Joe McEwing.I hope Minaya finds someone who wants McEwing, both so the Mets can get something for him and so that McEwing lands somewhere easily. For all the picking on McEwing we do here, he isn't a bad guy... just not really a good player.
He is 1 for 14 at the plate this spring, striking out with the bases loaded and one out in the eighth inning yesterday. McEwing has a guaranteed $500,000 contract for this season, meaning Minaya might try and work out a trade.
This column also has nice notes on Vance Wilson happiness and Steve Trachsel's injury. Enjoy.
