Valley Fever? Really?? Ike Davis is diagnosed with some bizarre spores in his lungs called Valley Fever and we’re supposed to chalk this up to random bad luck?
No folks there’s a larger force at play here and BMF believes its called “The Wilpon Jinx”. How else could you possibly explain a franchise snakebitten as badly as the Mets?
No team in MLB– check that, no team in professional sports is as “unlucky” as our Mets and now we get word that Ike has a rare infection in his lungs likely contracted from breathing in soil in the desert.
It’s prob not so bad, but with whispers that this could potentially be career threatening it’s not the sort of news you welcome. He’s also supposed to avoid extreme fatigue another great buzz for your staring 1st baseman in early March.
And with the Met history of treating Ike Davis injuries this is exponentially more troubling.
When will the Wilpon Curse be forced to sell?
