I CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR OMAR BUMBLE AND STUMBLE OVER THIS ONE

 

 

I think we are all beyond the point of being shocked when another player is stamped defective but in the case of Johan Santana the question is who in the organization knew his elbow was hurting and when did they know it?

 

Jerry Manuel claims that since the All Star break Santana had an issue with the elbow, if this is true, this makes the organization more inept than we ever imagined. As much as we fans give the team doctors and training staff holy hell for the injuries maybe our wrath is misguide and this is just another case of the front office being clueless once again ?

 

Did Santana go to Dan Werthen or Manuel and tell either one that his elbow was not right? Let’s say he did. Now wouldn’t they then go to Omar and tell him we have a problem and in turn wouldn’t Minaya send Santana straight to the doctor for an examination? At that point wouldn’t an MRI be ordered to see what was causing the discomfort in the elbow? This problem didn‘t happen yesterday or last week it seems the Mets have allowed Santana to pitch with a bum wing. Again who is in charge here?

 

We can all joke and laugh about who’s next to get hurt and sit and lament about us poor little Mets fans suffering through a lousy season but in all seriousness this organization is a total embarrassment from the owner to the GM to the coaches manager and players.

 

My biggest fear is not who will be injured next but it’s that the Mets are becoming the Pittsburgh Pirates.

 

Adding to my confused state is one Billy Wagner. What the fuck does this guy want? He has been praised here and every where on his hard work and perseverance at coming back from surgery to get back to the big leagues. The Mets tired to help him and themselves by placing him on waivers and letting him go to a contending team. Now he’s making all kinds of demands and looking to pitch close to his Virginia home. Well, where does he want to go? DC? Baltimore? Atlanta? Miami? Not one of those teams will pay him the kind of money he wants in the off season. It seems this will work in the Mets favor. As long as the offer him arbitration they either get a very good set up man or two more draft picks. Since Wagner is more worried about getting 400 saves than pitching in a post season it seems he will turn down arbitration sign with the Marlins and the Mets get two draft picks. Advantage Mets.

 

I don’t know what’s sadder that Santana is not starting tonight or that the best the Mets can come up with to take his spot is Nelly Figs?

    ESPN reporting that Wagner changed his mind, and that the Mets will get “two players to be named later.”

    That sounds promising, huh?

    Then again, we would have eff’d up the two draft picks anyway, so what’s the difference?

    Feh.

    Wagner lost me during that Subway Series meltdown at Shea in 2006. The Mets led the Saturday (I think) game 4-1 going to the ninth. Randolph called on Wagner to pitch the ninth and he blew the lead in an ugly way, with a hit batter and lots of noise.

    The next day, he said he couldn’t get up for a game that wasn’t a save situation.

    That’s when I started hated that dumb hayseed. He couldn’t get psyched with 55,000 yankee haters screaming for a win because he wouldn’t pad his save count.

    Oh – and the mets lost that one in extra innings.

    I knew that day he was a gutless hick with a straight 95 mph fastball but not the brains or balls to be a winner.

    Later Wags. Fenway fans will catch on to right quick and boo the fuck out of you.

    Thank the returning Mr. Minaya for that. We have shit for depth, and we have him to thank.

    Thanks again, Omar. And thanks, Freddy, for bringing him back. Makes me so want to renew my tickets! You’re such a swell guy, Freddy!

  4. Remember last season when the Mets still had a chance to win something. We found out two days after the season ended that Johan was playing on a hurt knee. We thought poochies like Jose Reyes and others should have been ashamed of themselves for not playing with 1/2 the heart Johan did. Now he’s out – this was season ending injury now. however if the mets had a chance, I guarantee he would have played through it.

    Ah live and learn. Just forfeit!
