Last week, the Mets announced that Johan has been cleared to begin throwing, but in an ESPN Live Chat today, Adam Rubin adds a little more clarification. Question – With Santana starting to throw already, is there a chance he could come back sooner than expected? Adam Rubin – I don’t know that he actually has thrown yet. Actually, I don’t think he has. The Mets announced it as he’s been cleared to throw BEFORE […]
As we come to grips with the fact that hope will be the prevailing theme in 2011 and that basically we are playing the same hand we had last season minus Johan Santana, we will all have our patience tested. There’s a lot of things that need to go right where hope is concerned for the 2011 Mets. We hope Jason Bay shows up and performs at a level we all expected when we first […]
Before I begin this week’s post I apologize for my post last week on Omar Minaya and Roy Halladay. When writing my post last week I had no intention to hurt anyone or insult anyone’s nationality. I promise in the future to be more careful with my posts. This is not a post bashing Johan Santana. I know early on in the 2010 season I wrote that Santana was done and I admit I was wrong. […]
It’s safe to say that while we all may be Mets fans to the core, there’s a part of us – our own dark sides if you will – that have had our collective fill of the 2010 New York Mets and want to see it all torn down, brick by brick, player by player, leaving no one safe from our wrath. Unfortunately all of that visceral, palpable fear of failure will do the New […]
Thankfully there are only 6 more games left of this horrible season. That also means only 6 more games left of some jerryball. Last year after the season ended the Mets did a bit of a media blitz that concluded with Jeff Wilpon, Omar Minaya and Dave Howard going on WFAN with Mike Francesa. They made a bunch of promises and some excuses that for some reason had Mets fans hopeful for 2010. I posted […]
As if things couldn’t get worse regarding Johan Santana, it has now been reported that when Santana had his surgery last week, it was not arthroscopic surgery as many had thought. It was a traditional surgery with a full incision to open up the shoulder and repair the anterior capsule tear. According to David Waldstein of the New York Times, Because of the nature of Johan Santana’s shoulder injury and the operation to repair it, the […]
According to Mets.com, Johan Santana underwent successful surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn capsule in his left shoulder. The procedure was performed by Mets team doctor David Altchek at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. The timetable for Santana’s return is unclear, although the Mets expressed optimism last week that their ace would be “ready to throw during Spring Training”. Others have suggested he likely won’t be strong enough to resume a […]
Last week it was announced that Johan Santana would need surgery to repair the the anterior capsule of his shoulder. What started out as a pectoral injury has now developed Johan Santana having surgery on his pitching shoulder. Of course when the injury first occured there was no MRI. Santana was “day to day” which must be the only phrase Omar’s buddy and head trainer Ray Ramirez knows. Not only was there no MRI or […]
What was written then is coming to pass, the back end of Johan Santana’s contract appears to be choking the Mets. It was widely written, by me and others, that six years is too long a deal for a pitcher who had already accumulated a lot of innings. Santana’s velocity has been in decline, and now he faces shoulder surgery that ESPN is reporting could keep him out for up to two years. This is […]
