BASEBALL: The Kaz-alry

Mets announcers just reported the Mets are calling up Kaz Ishii, Shingo Takatsu, and Tim Hamulack when the rosters expand tomorrow.

*Ishii, we know all too well; he has pitched well at Norfolk (1.76 ERA in 15.1 IP)

*Takatsu, who had a terrible year that started with him as the White Sox closer and ended with him getting released, could be useful; he pitched very well in June (0.96 ERA, 9 IP, 4 H, 1 HR, 3 BB, 10 K) before backsliding in July, and he's pitched fairly well in Norfolk, although he's continued to be homer-prone.

*Hamulack is a hard-throwing lefty who has been great at Binghamton and Norfolk (1.13 ERA, 64 IP, 40 H, 1 HR, 15 BB, 61 K), although he's 28 and has a checkered minor league career.
