Kid Bids Hess Adieu

Lucas Duda just blasted one out of Whatever It’s Called Stadium, his second homer, meaning Club Hessman [1] loses yet another temporary member. Population of One Met Homer Village: 69 again.

If only it was ’69 again.

In other updating-type news, the war of attrition [2] has claimed another victim: Bobby Parnell, out for the season [3] with inflammation and stiffness in his pitching elbow. That’s four Mets who have been lost in September: Santana, Mejia, Hernandez, now Bobby. Also, Ollie Perez and Luis Castillo don’t seem to be available, ever.

Which is OK.
