NL East Update: The one where Murphy/Evans may be odd men out with Mets

Will the New York Mets have a spot for Daniel Murphy and Nick Evans next season?

Unfortunately for Evans, I don’t see him having a future with the Mets, but maybe with another team, that is if he ever gets the chance. Murphy has shown he can be an everyday player, as a hitter at least. His baseball instincts are close to the worst I’ve ever seen, leading me to believe that he is better suited for a DH role for an American League team and not playing in the field for the Mets since there isn’t a position for him. I wouldn’t be surprised if they find themselves on other clubs next season. That may be best for all the parties involved.

With September baseball upon us, its time for the Atlanta Braves to figure out how they plan on handling their pitching staff for September and October.

I hope the Braves give a few chances to Julio Teheran and Randall Delgado. By giving them a few spot starts in the next month could really benefit them in the post-season. Atlanta is loaded with starting pitching and despite the young age of Teheran and Delgado, I have a funny feeling they will have their “coming out party” in the next couple months.

Despite missing a majority of the season to shoulder inflammation, Florida Marlins pitcher Josh Johnson may see some action in the final weeks.

I don’t really have a stance on this issue one way or another, but if you’re going to pitch him for one or two starts in meaningless games, you’d better make sure he’s healthy. It’s similar to the Steven Strasburg situation, but the difference is I think Strasburg is more prone to overthrowing due to his lack of major league experience, thus he should sit out the remainder of the season.

A year of high expectations has turned into a disappointing one for the Philadelphia Phillies Domonic Brown.

I’m no baseball scout, and I’ll never pretend to be one, but I just don’t see what everyone else is raving about in Brown. He will turn into a solid ball player since he is so athletic, but I don’t see him evolving into a superstar, or even a power hitter. We’ve seen Brown up and down with the Phillies for about three years now and I haven’t been impressed, simple as that.

Unbelievable story from Nationals Park about everyone’s favorite vendor, the beer man.

The amount of tragic or near tragic experiences this year in baseball stadiums has to be at an all-time high. In situations like that, people tend to wait for things to happen, so it was great for Emmanuel Marlow to take charge.
