Mets expect deadline to pass without trade
By Adam Rubin
NEW YORK -- Sunday is the final day for a trade to occur and the player to be eligible for the acquiring team's postseason roster. Still, the Mets continue to expect the deadline will pass without a trade involving Bartolo Colon or anyone else, a team insider told ESPNNewYork.com.
Expansion plans: Rosters expand Monday, but do not expect a big wave of call-ups immediately. Third catcher Juan Centeno, who is on the 40-man roster, should join the Mets soon, if not precisely on Monday. Longer term, right-handers Rafael Montero, Gonzalez Germen and Erik Goeddel -- all on the 40-man roster, like Centeno -- could join the Mets.
The boot: Daniel Murphy is wearing a full walking boot on his right foot these days, further signaling the injury that put him on the disabled list is not minimal. The injury is limited to the calf, though, Murphy said.
