I am so inseced by the news about Braden Looper‘s shoulder that I don’t even know where to begin. Looper was hurt even before the season began. He was told he needed surgery that would cause him to miss the early part of the season. The other option was to play through it because the doctors said it will not get any worse with wear. Looper chose to play since the Mets bullpen was unsettled at the time and he would add so legitimacy (ha!) to it. Let’s forget the fact that he sucked through the first few weeks of the season. I’d rather lose Looper the first month of the season and have him back 100% healthy down the stretch run (another part of this season during which he sucked) thank have him pitch in pain with a bad shoulder the whole season. Yet another blown save for Looper this year.
