ANOTHER SETBACK FOR #00 AND THE METROPOLITANS
After a misfire of a t-shirt cannon in a spring training game against the Cards a few weeks back, Mr. Met has felt stiffness in his right shoulder. The injury was originally listed as not serious, but in the following weeks his condition did not improve. Two days ago, he was flown to NY to see a specialist at the Sesame Street Hospital for Special Puppet Surgeries. Because of all his padding and stitching, MRIs proved inconclusive. Now back in Florida, he will begin his rehab assignment on Saturday in a simulated crowd-working session to see if he can get himself up to speed for the home opener on April 8th. When asked about his setback, Mr. Met had this to say, "I'm a gamer, and in truth I haven't been at 100% since 2006. I want to do what's best for the team. If I can contribute and help the team, I'll be out there." Get well soon, Mr. Met. We love you.
