"STEVE TRACHSEL TAKES A TRIP TO NY BUT IT'S NOT TO SEE THE STATUE OF LIBERTY"
No, it's to get an MRI of his back. Trachsel has had stifness in his back but the Mets feel he needs to visit the new and improved medical staff in NY to see how deep this problem is.
Trachsel was to start Tuesday game but he'll skip that start. For some strange reason, Trahsel is pencile din as the number five starter in the rotation but I don't see how Victor Zambrano could be ahead of Trachsel. Trachsel may be hard on the eyes when he takes the mound but he does eat innings which makes that fifth starter label even more curious.
