The injury bug has bitten the Mets again, and the fan base is ready to go off the deep end. Message to my fellow Mets fans, every team gets injuries; the good ones overcome the losers’ sit and lament. Take a look down I-95 at the Phuck Phaces, those are key injuries and still they have the best record in baseball, oh I’m sorry Mets fans did I hurt your feelings? I don’t think any fan base in sports cry’s more than Mets fans do when a player gets hurt and unfortunately the manager is starting to fall into the make excuse mode as it pertains to David Wright , if Terry Collins feels that the back and neck problems Wright is experiencing has led to his piss poor plate production, then sit him down, otherwise keep your feelings to yourself.
Very hard to criticize Sandy Alderson for signing Chris Young, it was a gamble that didn’t work out. Same as taking Brad Emaus as a Rule 5 pick. Eamus didn’t work out and he was cut, Young couldn’t stay healthy now he’s gone as well. Pedro Beato was a Rule 5 that works and so far Chris Capuano a wounded pitcher, who so far is healthy and working out fine. Shit happens and you deal with it, that’s the Alderson way.
We can’t be shocked about Young, disappointed yes, but not shocked. He had bicep problems earlier and a history of shoulder trouble so every pitch could have been his last.
If Willie Harris is not an ex-Met by lunch time I will be very disappointed. I can’t believe this is the same player who struck fear in Mets fans hearts but he has still kept his reputation as a Mets Killer, but this time as a member of the Mets. The fact that terry Collins said that Harris ran on his own, there by throwing him under the bus, tells you the manager as had enough, let’s see if the GM agrees.
You can add Chin-lung Hu to the cut him list to he may be the worst player the Mets have had since Mike Glavine.
I thought Keith Hernandez was going to jump out of the booth last night after Josh Thole took a 3-1 pitch and then walked in the 6th with second and third 2 outs and the pitchers spot on deck. Mex wigged out that Thole “had two Rib Eye’s “ in scoring position and the pitcher up next would settle for a walk and not battle to drive those Rib-Eyes home. I’m with Keith here, 3 and 1 with two runners in scoring position and you take the pitch? I’ll give you the rookie mistake and hopefully young Josh learns from that.
