You Gotta Be Kiddin’ Me

All of a sudden Ike Davis may need Microfracture surgery??!!?? 

That was the headline but the fine print was even more troubling:

It seems the Met decision to keep Ike in a boot for 3 weeks may have actually done damage - DOH!

Apparently in addition to still having his bone bruise he’s now developed a cartilidge issue in his ankle. It seems the boot didn’t allow enough blood flow to promote healing. 

WTF is wrong with the NY Mets? 

I’ve never heard of a franchise in any major sport that is so consistently successful at screwing up a relatively simple situation.

I thought it was odd when I read earlier this week Ike was still in the boot. How on earth did we get from a bruised calf to micro fracture surgery.

I don’t even really know what micro-fracture surgery is other than it was still at the experimental stage when I first heard of it with Beltran.

What I do know is micro-fracture surgery = season over

For cryin’ out loud Ike went back to first and finished the inning — it can’t be THAT bad? Can it? It prob wasn’t until the Mets ham-handed medical staff got ahold of him.

I’d like to remind all youngsters to always CALL FOR THE BALL. If Ike, Wright or Pelfrey were communicating none of this would have happened.


Re: Last Nite’s win

I’ll take a HBP Walk-Off any day.

I hate to see K-Rod blowing games like this all of a sudden - he’s losing trade value with each BS
What a play by Gio gonzalez to catch a poor toss from his 1st baseman while sliding into first.

    If strolling the field of CitiField is on your bucket list, today’s day game is your chance. Too bad it’s limited to Seniors!

    I agree BMF- you HAVE to call for the ball !!!! Now Ike maybe out for the season-wow. Good win last night- I fall asleep on it- (I wake up early for work). Now lets get the W today! Lets go Mets !!! Another triple for the best shortstop in the National League. OK boys and girls, lets start the chorus- RE-SIGN REYES ! RE-SIGN REYES ! RE-SIGN REYES ! RE-SIGN REYES ! RE-SIGN REYES ! RE-SIGN REYES ! RE-SIGN REYES ! RE-SIGN REYES !

    BMF.. I didn’t know you had such good algebra skills… Micro surgery = end of season.

    I see that Bay is back to being Bay.. 0-5, 3K. For a second there, I was concerned that he was on HGH.

    I hope everyone see the incredible value in Reyes. Besides the triple, if not for Reyes, another player is not basically intentionally walked in the 13th, loading the bases allowing the HBP to bring in the winning run.

    Can we please win the game this afternoon, keeping my delusional dreams of a WC alive?

    Let’s Go Mets

    The Ike news was the second piece of bad news from yesterday. The first was that Reyes will not even talk new contract until after the season. There goes any chance of the Mets making a solid offer and Jose deciding to avoid the stress of being courted by other teams and having outrageous amounts of money thrown at him and signing right now. cleon - you may as well ditch your sign-off, Jose is Bronx bound.

    What a game by Dickey last night. Shame he didn’t get a win for his efforts. With Tejada, Murphy, Turner et al reverting to who they really are (borderline major league hitters at best), Bay still being his “new” self (awful), and Duda remaining who he is (AAA slugger) I think we are seeing an offensive swoon that will continue for a long time.

    At least Frankie called himself out last night. Took the words right outta my mouth.

    Bay’s a leper & if it weren’t for Reyes, this lineup would be even more pathetic.

    I hate K-Rod. I know he’s been lights out at moments this season, but I just can’t stand him. CANNOT STAND HIM. Ugh. I really hope Parnell or someone grows into the closer role because I have had enough of this guy.

    Ike—UGH!!!!!!!!! WTF is wrong with our medical staff? I think these guys would be better off in the emergency room at Brooklyn Hospital than at the Hospital for Special Surgery.

    But…could Turner be more clutch? I love this kid. That is a bright spot. We came back and won it and stopped the negative momentum.

    Unreal, this bruise now needs season ending surgery. I swear, this medical staff could be worse than my elementary school nurse (you’d go in with an ankle sprain and she’s check your temp) these guys take the ankle sprain, sit on it, do the exact opposite of what you should to to fix it then tell you it needs surgery.

    We might be looking at a big rain delay or postponement, I live in northwest Jersey and it’s been 2 HOURS of torrential rain, the roads can’t handle the runoff, my sump pump is smokin! There are brief moments when it slows down to “normal” rain, but those moments are very brief.

    Yep you’ve got to call it. I wouldn’t even put Pelfrey in the mix tho, except to get the hell out of the way of whoever is CALLING for the BALL.
    These “little” things are killing us, they’re probably giving TC a million micro-ulcers.

    Everybody talks Bay’s bat, but there was one glaring moment that drove me nuts. DeJesus steals 2nd, and Paulino, poor guy, gets charged with a throwing error. The ball dribbles into center and DeJesus takes 3rd. Okay did anybody notice how LATE Tejada was on that backup???? Geezus tap dancing… he’s got to either pace DeJesus, or BEAT him to backup with Reyes covering. We were just lucky Weeks struck out. Okay, not lucky, good job by Izzy. But Really???
    This stuff kills me.

    Anyway I hope we play, I was looking forward to Cappy in an afternoon game.

    Irish…I might have agreed with you, but read Metsblog today. Anyway my son says José is a Giant next year.

    FGMF….ditto, and more ditto.

    JoMom….I’ve got a good long story about my son’s elementary school nurse, who sent him back to class with a bandaid on his arm scrape, after he broke BOTH his forearm bones. “Shredded like green twigs” said the x-ray tech. I thought we had more accountability and oversight after The Church Debacle. My bad.

    Prof - interesting but we’ll see. The Yanks have no use for a washed up Jeter after he gets his 3000th hit. Could so see them trading him, eating much of the salary, trading Nunez (maybe for the $$ to pay Jeter’s salary) and giving Jose $120 mil for six.

  12. ProfessorReyes Says:

    Irish….also interesting. But I just can’t see Jeter sneaking out the door after becoming Mr. 3000, those NY fans would throw him under the nearest Ford Edge. I’d like to believe his rep is to much of a ball and chain on him to let him walk away so easily, and maybe he will show his class, altho I hear so much sketchy stuff about him, having that castle up here about a mile from my house and all.

    Bottom line is, I don’t think anybody would raise their hand at this point, when José could totally level off after the ASB.

    If you have a long face like a horse, the Met team doctors just assume you are one.
