Mets News and Notes:
David Wright was quoted, "I don't think we are a bad team, We are just playing very bad right now. If you watch our games, you can probably see from the outside what we are seeing; we are not executing. The coaching staff is getting us prepared. The players, we have to do a better job of executing."
The biggest news will come before tonight's game when the results of Johan Santana’s MRI are expected to be announced.
If Santana cannot start Thursday afternoon, Colin McHugh has been promoted from Triple-A to the taxi squad to take his place. Adam Rubin has a scouting report on McHugh, who has been described as a “Dillon Gee type” who relies on pinpoint control.
