Oblique Out Freak Out

What is going on with the Mets and these pulled obliques? Maybe everyone is like this but the Mets feel incredibly banged up right now.

Duda’s back, Herrera’s back, Byrdak’s knee… but most worrisome is Wright flying back to NY to have his oblique looked at.

Please don’t tell me we’re heading for another year marred by injuries.

I hate these oblique issues, they’re all too often a lingering pain that nags for months at a time because the only real solution is the sort of extended rest one simply cant afford during the season.

And if he’s coming back to NY that means there’s real concern. Of course these days the Mets are prob in CYA mode but either way I’m very uncomfortable this has popped up before Mar 15 even.

The positive news is Santana looked good again. I still cant really allow myself to think he might return to form this season but maybe… Just maybe…

    I’m convinced the Mets medical staff isn’t made up of doctors but just people that play ones on TV!

    It must be officially baseball season….BJake is back in the house!

    Nice to have ya back…sadly you haven’t missed much this off season.

    USMF, good to be back on a once-in-a-while basis. I actually think this team will be competitive if Santana holds up. Of course, that prediction also involves a healthy Wright, a healthy Ike, a healthy Murphy, a resurgent Bay, a blossoming Duda and much more. But for now, I’ll be an optimist.

    Late breaking news…Wright is being sent to the west coast for further analysis of his potential oblique issue…he’ll be seeing Dr Conrad Murray at San Quentin first thing in the AM…
