The Yankees beat the Mets 5-2 today at Citi Field in a game where the final score was insignificant. The only thing that matters is the condition of Jose Reyes, who was forced to leave the game in the 3rd inning with tightness in his left hamstring. The dreaded MRI is scheduled for tomorrow. Considering the Mets bumbling medical staff and Reyes’ history of hamstring problems, Mets fans have no choice but to fear the worst. Mets doctors from The Hospital for Special Surgery are the laughingstock of professional sports. These clowns have misdiagnosed and mistreated so many injuries that the odds of Reyes seeing the field again this season are slim. Even if there is no damage to the hamstring; Mets doctors will find a way to make the situation worse.
Mets Blob is at a loss for words. This is a shame. Jose Reyes has been the best player in baseball this season. He is putting up numbers not seen since Ty Cobb. Can this historic season really come crashing down on July 2nd? It does not seem fair. However, it does seem Met-like.
