With about 3 weeks to go before Opening Day the Mets are already seeing their injured list mount. Going into spring training they knew the hobbled Carlos Beltran would likely miss the first month of the season. But then a few days into camp they realize newly signed set-up man Kelvim Escobar is still experiencing pain in his pitching arm. Then just last week it was revealed that Mr. Sportsmanship himself Jose Reyes has a thyroid problem and now doctors are recommending he rest for 2-8 weeks, which means DL time to begin the 2010 campaign of losing for the Mets. What's the saying- Kick 'em when they're down!
Life's a Pitch:
Roy Halladay, JA Happ, Jamie Moyer (B games only), and Kyle Kendrick- spotless. Cole Hamels- barely scathed. Joe Blanton- bad first outing, 4 shutout innings yesterday. That's the rotation right there, and so far so good. Now, just gotta get those bullpen arms in line.
