If only that were the case.
The Mets were in line to take 3 games from the Red Sox and help us forget that most of the team is wounded, hurt, on the bench and unable to play.
So much for that.
On Sunday, the Mets dropped the final game of their first interleague series of the season, falling to Boston by a lopsided score of 12-5. That wasn't the only thing that fell; the Mets themselves are dropping like flies.
Following today’s game, Jose Reyes told reporters that his leg is still not feeling good, and said there is ‘no chance’ he will start tomorrow at home against the Nationals. Frankie Rodriguez collapsed on the floor after last night's game as a result of pain from back spasms. He was back from a Boston Hospital today and is said to be feeling better. Let's hope. Ramon Martinez was removed from today’s game in the eighth inning with back pain, Jerry Manuel explained. Prior to today's game, Manuel said it is possible Ryan Church could be put on the disabled list, as he will have his sore right hamstring examined tomorrow in New York. Church also said he is experiencing pain his right hip. Fun fun fun. Carlos Delgado is recovering from surgery, Alex Cora is on the 15 day DL, Carlos Beltran was reluctant to play center field in the series due to soreness in his knees, and Brian Schneider is still on the DL (with word that he is coming off soon).
Is that enough for ya?
Oh, and to top it all off, the Mets fan base is sick to their stomach having to endure it all.
If only there was a DL for us too...
