If you were watching today’s game when Gary Sheffield left the bases with apparent leg stiffness, Gary and Ron were reciting the litany of Met injuries, and having trouble remembering all of them. That got me wondering who has not been injured out of the Opening Day roster. Take a look: Out of the Opening Day lineup, only Wright and Murphy have never been injured. Castillo is listed because we don’t have enough information on […]
We all have them—friends who are overly optimistic, even when things with our Mets look as grim as they possibly can. To put this in perspective, during Game 6 of the ’86 World Series, I was hanging out with a bunch of friends in a bar on Long Island. Among those friends was my buddy Tom from Bayside, and I distinctly remember Tom’s insane optimism through my beer-soaked haze as the season was slipping away. […]
Every time an updated injury report is released, August appears to be the month circled for the majority of the disabled players to make their return to the Mets. What will this mean for the players who have been thrust into everyday roles over the past few months? Let’s start analyzing what August has in store for the Mets, beginning with the hitters. The key Mets injuries in 2009 have been the ones to Carlos […]
In the early innings of tonight’s Mets telecast, Gary Cohen asked the viewers who they thought was the injured player closest to making his way back from the disabled list. Although Jose Reyes has been doing some light running and is very close to playing in rehab games, he was not the answer. Imagine my surprise when the answer was revealed to be the Sandman, Billy Wagner! So I did a little research to see […]
For as bad as the Mets have looked at times this season (and I have advocated blowing up the team or just not paying attention to them anymore), it’s almost miraculous that they are not worse than three games under .500 and 6 ½ games out of first place. When you think about the lousy starting pitching we’ve endured at times, the mental mistakes that seem to multiply, the injuries to most of the key […]
The Mets bullpen got off to a great start and quickly staked its claim as the best in the National League after an off-season overhaul. But as the season wore on, and the bullpen innings continued to mount, we began to see some cracks as May came to an end. Jerry Manuel was quick to take the blame for his ineffective bullpen lately, but there’s more to it than that. “What I need to do […]
As reported by the Mets, reliever J.J. Putz will have surgery to remove a bone spur in his right elbow and miss at least two months. The NY Post writes, The team confirmed Putz’s decision after the former All-Star closer had his ailing elbow examined by team doctors this morning in New York. Putz, who has been bothered by the bone spur in his elbow since last summer, when he was still with the Mariners, […]
Help Wanted – Experienced and licensed health-care professionals needed to resuscitate an organization that is in now on life support. After yesterday’s bombshell that Jose Reyes had been re-examined and lo and behold a new injury was discovered, Mets fans are justifiably worried. Reyes it seems, has a torn tendon in his hamstring, but I question whether this is really a new injury as is being reported, or if it’s just another case of the Mets […]
Here we go again… Adam Rubin reports that J.J. Putz will be in New York on Friday for an examination on his right elbow and that he may need surgery to remove the bone spur, but will wait for the recommendation for team doctors. Adam Rubin writes, Putz had a cortisone shot before joining the team in San Francisco on May 14. The inflammation went down for a while, and Putz acknowledged he was never […]
