Caught Reyes’ interview on the pre game show. This doesn’t sound like a man that’s been ‘milking’ it all season, like some sports analysts and fans would have you believe. He’s gonna try running again one more time and if there’s still pain, will probably do surgery. He sounded completely frustrated…
Booth tonight on SNY is just Keith and Ron. Very strange not hearing Gary there. The only other time this year Gary wasn’t there, Kevin filled in, and since he’s done play by play for minor league and ST games, he was pretty good. He won’t be filling in tonight though, even though he’s at the park.

So let me understand this…Reyes is diagnosed with a pulled…then “slighty” torn…
then a completely torn hamstring….Misses four months…AND STILL may need surgery???
AND if he does need surgery, when will this be?? In another month..or two…how ’bout
three??? THEN with surgery to repair a torn hamstring, does ANYONE have ANY idea how
long the rehab is with that??
Really…This training and medical staff is unbelievable!!
AND Omar is safe?!…Returning for next season…Allowed to continue to make additional
hiring decisions like Tony B.,Ray Ramirez etc,etc.??
How the freak is this possible???
How is this NOT just about money? Because if the Madoff damage as Mr.Howard stated in
the Wilpon’s defense, not as bad as we all thought/think….Well then they really don’t
know what the heck they’re doing!

little worked up tonight, aren’t you fongy?
1 question before I rebut. How the heck is this about money? Just so the Mets don’t have to pay the surgery bill?
ANyway, his hamstring is fine. If that was completely torn(Neise did that, right?) he would have had surgery right away.
Jose’s problem is with a hamstring tendon. Supposedly it is the “appendix” tendon, in that you don’t really need it (it was mentioned that they often use that one to transplant during TJ surgery).
So, from the reports, the normal course of treatment for a partial tear was rest (letting it heal itself). From the various reports, it seems he may have come back too sone, and tore it completely?
After that, it gets a triffle fuzzy what the issue is, but it hurts (possibly from scar tissue). Now whether that is normal you gotta play through it, or more serious, I sure don’t know.
anyway, it still seems like they have been trying the rest option (and rehab to work on breaking up scar tissue). And rightly so, keeping surgery as the last resort. This might be a minor procedure, but any time yo invade a joint, bad things can happen (just ask Maine!)
Oh, and after he was hurt, and sent down the PSL or whereever, not sure what the heck ramirez had to do with him being out.

The money I was referring to was that which is owed on Omar’s contract.
And EVERYTHING is “fuzzy” when it comes to simply diagnosing a simple
sports injury with THIS team! Again, what the freak is that?
Can you find me a few other examples anywhere in sports where
almost every injury turns into a major ordeal for a single team?
I’m worked up after reading about the Reyes interview and having
it sound like a HAMSTRING injury may now turn into a two year injury!
Oh, and having to again, get it through my head that Omar will get
to continue to be the GM and be the one who will now be entrusted
to try and fix this mess that HE made.
Combined with a payroll cut,nothing coming through the system AND
the same guys Managing,coaching and training…wheres the hope??

I couldn’t quite figure out how you were tying Reyes being out this long to money woes. I guess you weren’t!
But man, you are taking the doom and gloom to “the glass got knocked off the table and all the water spilled out” territory.
But, you want hope? I have no idea if all the same guys will be in the same roles next year. And yes, jerry is an idiot. But, Omar is not comepletely hopeless. He can do basic things, just needs some help with the trickier stuff, and it sounds like he may be getting that now.
There is also nothing definitive to say that payroll will be cut, and if it is, by how much.
and assuming the “core” manages to be on the field in April (all expected to be), they still have 4-5 of the top players in the game, and that is 20% of the team right there. Not too many other teams can say the same.
I also have no idea if other teams have weird injury issues like this, becasue frankly, I don’t really pay attention to them. I rambled on about the specifics of Reyes case above, but I really don’t see how this becomes a 2 year process. If he isn’t recovered enough soon, he wil have the (minor) surgery, which is still projected to have him eady for ST.
and finally, I think it is nonsensical to say there is “nothing” coming through the system. F Mart was up this year (too early, but he was doing fine in AAA at a young age). Neise was up, Thole is up now. Ike Davis had a huge year, including his time in AA. Kirk N. made huge strides, and Holt and Mejjia both reached AA this year. Ruben Tejada had an excellent 2nd half in AA.
So, 1/2 these guys either hit the majors for some action this year, nad quite a few could make it up at some point next year (heck, some maybe out of ST). So there is life in the minors.
And if you really can’t find any nugget of hope here, you might want to consider taking a break for your own health!

Oh, and before you get too upset, I would really prefer to see someone else besides Omar making the decisions.
Heck, while I know that you can’t always execute a plan (takes 2 to tango), I would be way more confident if TRS was the one drawing up the roadmap for the FO to follow!
