While the Mets wasted a comeback in there home park by losing 8-7 in 13 innings there rivals the Phillies have worked out a deal to get Roy Oswalt pending his approval.
According to Heyman on his twitter account the Astros will get Lefty J A Happ and right Vance Worley along with 2 other pitching prospects. The deal was delayed due to the fact the teams were discussing how much the Astros would have to pay of Oswalt salary. More details to follow.
The Mets almost had there first 6 run comeback since beating the Cardinals 8-7 in 2006. Santana was not on his game in the first inning giving up 6 runs on 8 hits. He was not able to get the last out in the first as all 6 runs scored with 2 outs. The Mets chipped away and Santana avoided a loss as the Mets tied the game in the 8th. The Mets blew chances with runners on in the 9th with 1 out but were not able to score. There bullpen was stellar until the 13th. Now they can watch there rivals make a go for the division while the Mets probably wait to see if they still have a shot by watching the waiver wire come August.
