I told the witch doctor you didn’t love me too! And then the witch doctor he told me what to do He said that…….

 

Ooh to the eeh the ooh the aah aah
To the ting to the tang the wallawalla bingbang
Ooh to the eeh the ooh the aah aah
Ting tang wallawalla bingbang

 

Oh well here we go again, What first looked like a harmless day to day injury to Ike Davis has turned into a season ending, maybe micro surgery type of injury. I know most of Metfandom is ready to call out the Mets sawbones for another mis-diagnosis but it’s hard to say if this was a misdiagnosis or Ike just isn’t a fast healer.

So now the doctors have said they will remove the protective boot from Ike’s ankle to let more blood flow and hopefully allow for enough to rejuvenate the cartilage in the ankle. If that doesn’t work, then Ike will need microfracture surgery to get the blood flowing to the area.

Knowing the luck of this organization, figure you’ll see Ike again around late February 2012  . Let’s just hope the docs operate on the injured left ankle and not the healthy right one

JOSE REYES HEADED BACK TO ST. LONESOME

Jose Reyes has been cleared by doctors to retun to his baseball routine. Hopefully, with two weeks of spring training left, Reyes can get in enough work to be in the opening day lineup.

JOSE-JOSE, JOSE,JOSE-JOSE-JOSE

JOSE REYES SCRATCHED FROM TODAY’S GAME

Reports out of Mets camp is Jose Reyes has a doctor’s appointment today to go over results of a blood test he took during his physical. Yeah I ain’t buying either. Something is very fishy here.

 First of all the game is at 1PM, so why not see the doc either at 9AM or in the afternoon ? It’s not like Reyes is going to go a full 9 today. Why can’t the sawbones come to Mets camp to see Reyes or even co-ordinate with the Mets training  and medical staff to handle this in camp?   Besides it’s Thursday, everyone knows that doctors take off on Wednesday to play golf. 

Reyes says this had absolutely nothing to do with his legs that his hammy is dandy so that makes this trip to the doctor even more curious.

You would think with the teams track record on medical issues and the fragile psyche of  it’s fan base the front office would handle this a bit differently.  

So now let’s add Beltran’s knee, Escobar sore arm, Frankie Rodz pink eye to this mystery doctors appointment of Reye’s to the legend of the Mets front office reign of error

FIRST HAND LOOK AT THE NEW YORK “MESS”

I’m off to $iti Field today for the Mets-Reds and a seat in the Pepsi Porch section and I was all fired up for the trip until I read Adam Rubin’s State of the Mets story and I nealry choked on my everything bagel.

After reading the article it looks like a few people need to get a pink slip and I am ever so closely looking at the seating availability on the FIRE OMAR bandwagon. I’m not ready to but a ticket on the band waggon just yet but it’s clear there needs to be a purge of some front office employees in this organization.

Also in the aarticle Rubin shines some light on the medical issues that plague this team and it seems our anger toward the doctors is misguided as it should be pointed at the Omar, Tony B and the trainers.

PARDON ME WHILE I RUIN YOUR WEEKEND

 

 

If you haven’t gagged on your bagel this morning then I guess you haven’t seen this from Adam Rubin’s Surffin’ The Mets blog:

 Johan Santana says doctors told him it’s the triceps tendon that is causing stiffness in his pitching elbow. With pitching coach Dan Warthen and manager Jerry Manuelalready on the bus for Lakeland, Fla., Santana said he’ll wait until Sunday to map out a plan for pitching. But it’s clear he won’t be in a Grapefruit League game for a while. Santana said he hopes to throw a light bullpen session on Sunday. He then wants to face hitters in a batting-practice-style setting two or three times before entering a game. With potentially two days rest in between each BP, we’re possibly talking two weeks before a game appearance.

<GULP!>

Yes, that is the Mets puke bucket making an early season appearance
