Satin excited to finally get called to The Show
WASHINGTON -- Josh Satin was trying to get dressed quietly in the Mets' dressing room about three hours before Friday's game, but the excitement could be seen in his face.

The Mets purchased the infielder's contract from Buffalo of the Triple-A International League on Thursday. Satin had a big year in the Minors, hitting .312 in 141 at-bats with Buffalo after batting .325 in 338 at-bats with Double-A Binghamton in the Eastern League, and got his long-awaited chance in the Major Leagues.

He earned the spot with his hot hitting and had heard rumors in recent weeks that something like this could happen, but he tried to put them out of his mind. Satin has played in the Minors for seven years and never made it to the Major Leagues before.

"It's just something that I've always dreamed of and always worked for," Satin said. "I'm just really happy to be here."

Satin wasn't in Friday's lineup, but his family flew in Thursday night from California and hopes to see him play this weekend.
