Mets Morning News: What Happened Last Night?, Six-Man Rotation, Izzy,Dickey Takes The Train

In case you missed, the Mets lost to the Nationals last night by a score of 3-0. Yunesky Maya was a late replacement for Washington, filling in for Jason Marquis who was traded to Arizona. Maya and the Nationals bullpen shut out the Mets, and silenced New York's bats for much of the evening. The Mets made things interesting in the ninth inning. With the bases loaded and two outs, Willie Harris stepped to the plate. He would go on to take a called third strike to end the game.

According to the Daily News, manager Terry Collins may use a six-man rotation once Johan Santana returns from the disabled list.

Despite rumors of possible interest from other teams, Jason Isringhausen doesn't expect to be traded before the non-waiver trade deadline ends at 4 p.m. today. Izzy told the NY Post:
"I think I'm going to be sticking around, but stranger things have happened."
Finally, look for R.A. Dickey on a train near you. Dickey tells the New York Times how he occasionally takes the subway to various stadiums.This season he is recognized more by his fellow passengers, but last season he was able to ride the train without hardly being noticed.
"It was kind of like an out-of-body experience," Dickey recalled. "It was as if I was a fugitive going incognito."
