David Lennon, the New York Mets beat writer for Newsday on his twitter account has some news on Carlos Beltran and Jose Reyes and it’s not good, not at all. On Reyes, Lennon says: “Reyes back in NYC. Got another cortisone shot. Shut down again for a few days. Not good.” On Beltran the news is not that encouraging either as Lennon says: Beltran only riding bike. No baseball activity. Will be re-evaluated at AS [...]
Sometimes desperate times make us think desperate thoughts. Last night as I watched Johan Santana serve up a change-up to Ryan Braun that, frankly, I could have hit, and then watch the ball and a bunch of Brewers bounce all over the field and across the plate four times, my disbelief turned into realism. I started to think, is Santana the ace he was in April and May or is this worst stretch of his [...]
Like most of you I could not wait for the 2009 baseball season to begin. I felt the Mets were most definitely the team to beat in the National League. Omar Minaya did an awesome job rebuilding the bullpen by adding JJ Putz and Frankie Rodriguez. The Mets offense had no problems hanging crooked numbers on the scoreboard. This was going to be our year. Then the injury plague came. Never in my wildest dreams [...]
According to a tweet from Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post, Jose Reyes and trainer Ray Ramirez were involved in a car accident. Jose Reyes and the Mets trainer were in a car accident on the Triboro Bridge today. Reyes was not injured. Reyes and Ray Ramirez were hit from behind by a fire truck. Are we living in the Twilight Zone or something? NJ.com writes, Injured shortstop Jose Reyes and Mets trainer Ray Ramirez were [...]
There have been seasons where everything seemed to fall into place. There have also been seasons when we just went through the motions of a seemingly irrelevant and rigorous 162 game schedule. But I cant recall a season as perplexing as this one. We have played 64 games. The end of June is quickly approaching and before we know it, we’ll be at the All-Star Break. However, I have to admit, I don’t know what [...]
In a recent column on ESPN.com from Buster Olney talks about our injured SS – Jose Reyes: Mets must face possibility that Reyes has peaked Some excerpts from the column: There are talent evaluators with other teams who have their doubts. They see a diminishment of range, for whatever reason, and some signs of erosion in his defensive play. They point out that even at its highest, Reyes’ on-base percentage still falls in the range [...]
As the injuries have been piling up for the Mets over the past few weeks and the losses to teams like the Pirates and Nationals continue, Mets fans have come out in droves complaining about the team and their chances to make any kind of noise in the National League East. To those fans, I say RELAX! There’s still plenty of season left and many things to look forward to. Before you ask me what [...]
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 [...]
According to a tweet by Kevin Burkardt: Reyes has a tear in his right hamstring tendon. Add SS to the list of Mets needs. Wow, I hate to say it, but the Mets have done it again, and again, and again… More to come on this… Adam Rubin confirms ; Jose Reyes has a small tear of his right hamstring tendon, the team said in a statement Thursday night. Team doctor Struan Coleman advised Reyes [...]
