Erickson over; Spencer could soon follow

Scott Erickson's brief and disappointing stay with the New York Mets is over. <P> Coming off of a brutal start against the Montreal Expos Monday in which Erickson failed to record an out in a seven-run third inning, the Mets opted to cut their ties with the 36-year-old righthander, designating him for assignment before Wednesday's game at Montreal's Olympic Stadium.
