Well it is beginning to look like the 2017 New York Mets will not be able to compete for the postseason and the #1 reason is ….drum roll please….. #Injuries. Let me explain. Before today the following players where on the disabled list:

3B-Franchise face-captain David Wright(back,shoulder)

Ace pitcher Noah Syndergaard(shut down 4 more weeks, no throwing, lat muscle tear)

SS Asdrubal Cabrera(thumb)

All star closer Jeurys Familia(Throwing arm)


Before todays game, the team somehow lost 3 THREE players to the DL:

Pitcher Matt Harvey(scapula, out several weeks)

2B Neil Walker(torn hamstring)

RP Josh Smoker(elbow)


Then the game started and Juan Lagares made a Juan Lagares play…and broke his thumb.


Tonight I think it is obvious the team MVP should be trainer Ray Ramirez

I am a Terry Collins guy- although I wanted him fired and my life to end when he trusted Harvey in the 9th inning of game 5 of the World Series- and love him. But you feel for the man and what this has been like over the last several years with injuries. And its all areas– pitching, infielders, outfielders, young.,old. Just a cruel fate to a good baseball man. #LGM
