Injuries

The Minaya Era Taught Me To Be Concerned For Beltran

After sitting out yesterday’s game due to a sore knee Carlos Beltran was expected to play in an exhibition game today. This morning that plan was changed and it was announced that Beltran would play in a simulated game instead. Still later manager Terry Collins said that Beltran will not play at all today. Still […]



Fire The Training Staff!

If ever there was an excuse to fire the Mets training staff it was last night when Jose Reyes was removed from the game in the second inning after tweaking his oblique injury. The Mets have called it “mild” but Reyes will be shut down until he is pain free. The fact that Reyes was […]



Stupid Is As KRod Does

Earlier this season Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher Ryan Madson committed one of the stupidest acts a professional athlete can commit. After blowing a save in the 10th inning of a game against the San Francisco Giants Madson threw a temper tantrum during which he kicked a chair. Proving that the chair is mightier than the […]



Maine on the DL

John Maine was placed on the DL today with rotator cuff tendinitis.. So much for not having an injury. I’m surprised it took the team this long to take a serious look at him. The guy’s a gamer and wants to play so you can’t rely on him to tell you when he’s hurt. That’s […]



Don’t Repeat History, Put Castillo On The DL

With Jose Reyes expected to make a return to active duty tomorrow you’d say that things would be looking up for the Mets even in light of a mostly poor season opening series against the Florida Marlins in which they lost 2 of 3 games. You’d also probably be right. But I can’t help but […]



Mets Getting Ready To Play Likes It’s 2009

Mets camp is winding down and opening day just a few days away but I find myself without the optimism I usually have this time of year. Most years there something to get excited about. A fresh start, some hot new rookie, etc. But this year it seems as if the season will begin where […]



And So It Begins

After David Waldstein reported in the Bats blog for the New York Times yesterday that Kelvim Escobar “felt some discomfort in his right shoulder” Craig Calcaterra of NBC Sports’ HardballTalk is reporting that “Escobar isn’t even able to grip a baseball right now” and may be seriously injured. Are you kidding me? Here’s a guy […]



And So The Injury List Begins

Twitter has been abuzz tonight with a rumor about bad Mets news. For over an hour Mets fans debated what the news may be. By 9:30 Sports Illustrated posted a story saying Carlos Beltran has had “minor” surgery on his knee and will miss 8-12 weeks. Shortly thereafter the Mets released a statement saying Beltran […]



Reyes To Have Surgery; Minaya To Blame?

The sad state of the Mets play as well as their injury list lead me to go dormant for a while but I saw a story this morning that infuriated me so that I needed to come out of hiding and discuss. It appears that Jose Reyes, who’s been on the DL since May, will […]



Gary Sheffield: To DL or Not To DL?

Gary Sheffield is out for tonight’s lineup. This will be the third game in a row. Though manager Jerry Manuel says he’s trying to keep Sheffield fresh it seems obvious that his knee is bothering him. The questions remains is it worth it to keep him on the roster in the hopes he’ll get better […]
