The Great Plague of Injuries Strikes Again

Some would say that the Mets are leading the league in MRIs. They say that because once again the Mets have been struck with what is known as "The Great Plague of Injuries" And its all thanks to Chris Young, Johan Santana, Jose Reyes, Daniel Murphy, and Ike Davis. 3 of the 5 guys in that list are likely or certainly done for the year (Davis, Young,Murphy) Ike got hurt in Mid-May when he sprained his ankle and got a bone bruise in his left leg. Young tore his shoulder apart again, and Murphy, the latest to be struck by injury, got spiked by Jose Contanza and tore his MCL. Reyes could be back by late-August with a Hamstring pull, and Santana could be back early September after he had season ending surgery last year. Because of all these Injuries, the Mets Season is probably in the crapper, I think our goal for the rest of this year is for us to finish .500 or above and finish in 3rd place in the NL east.

Pray for Gary "The Kid" Carter #8.
