what are the chances of him staying in the rotation the rest of the season?
I have always liked this kid, and he is currently in the best possible situation he has been in for his career, right now. On top of that he would be slotted for some very favorable matchups the rest of the way if he can keep his current gig.

chances, news, links, anything?
does he get sent down when Pedro returns, or will it be Ollie?

thanks

Don't know. Bannister was already sent back down and it doesn't look like they are calling Pelfrey back up so that's two less people he has to contend with. Randolph has mentioned it and it doesn't seem unlikely that the Mets will use a 6-man rotation throughout the rest of the season. If that's the case he'll definitely stay otherwise he'll be battling with Maine and Perez, who I think will get another shot. I believe Williams pitches again in Colorado so that start might dictate what happens.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

yeah his next start is in Colorado, but after that the Mets schedule looks like a cruise. I am going to take a flier on him in a few deeper leagues and see what comes of it. I have always liked the lefty.

thanks

Dave Williams got optioned to the minors after tonight's game by it's just the Mets working the 40-man. He'll be back up for his start Tuesday.

If that holds true, his two home starts next week are looking fairly decent.

That's what I'm thinking too, but Tuesday's start is vs. Smoltz. Sportsline has him as a 1 starter next week with a Mon 9/11 start vs Fla - maybe that will be his 2 start week....? That would be the week to have him with his 2nd start vs Pitt.

DW has been a pleasant surprise since being called up. He's been certainly more reliable than the Trachsel. I wouldn't mind Trash being left off the playoff roster for Williams but that would never happen. He's starting tonight against the Marlins tonight btw.

Nope, sadly it is true. :,-(

Williams has had a knack of not letting people score even though he lets a lot on. Not tonigh though.
