Full story: Newsday 41
Once upon a time, in the fantasyland where the Mets ' front office seems to be located, Jose Reyes was supposed to be batting leadoff last night for the start of the second half, with Carlos Beltran expected soon after and John Maine a bit later. Full Story

By the time Reyes, Beltran and Delgado are ready, the season will be a total loss, so why not just shut them down now, and come clean with the fans and stop keeping them hanging on.
The Mets have been so dishonest with injuries, someone better have some serious 'splaining to do, like Dr. Vinnie Boomsbots or whoever the team doctor is.
Just like with Fernando Martinez, first they say he is day to day and available to pinch hit, now its surgery and six to eight weeks. But with the Wilpons as owners, this minor league franchise will continue to perpetrate this kind of fraud.

Not looking very good for the Mets right now with all of these injuries. Might be time to start thinking about being sellers at the deadline and get ready for 2010. All hope is not lost for them just yet, but it is getting closer by the day.

This is a clueless organization. For all we know all of them have had surgery. This season is done and so is next year. Minaya is a joke and the Wilpons are on par with our favorite loser owner Dolan.

I am truly impressed with all the intelligent conversation you guys are having. This is the way it should be! I am sure this is what Topix has in mind: for intelligent, normal, adult fans of baseball to comment on a topic at hand in a meaningful, NICE way, without insulting people simply because they happen to root for a different team. I work in a school with a diehard Yankee fan. I look forward to our conversation every morning, becuause we have a good natured banter--nothing cruel and insensitive like SOME folks who come here to provoke us Mets fans. I know I am making sense, but, as a result, I guarantee one ( or more) of the aforementioned individuals will say something mean.

If the Mets will trade any player., you name it., they wont have players to play the rest of the season., Teams cant trade players that are in D.L

Jeter was going to purchase better flying lessons but bought a huge mansion off the coast of Tampa instead. The queer part of Florida, Tampa. Maybe that kid who crashed his parents plane into the skyscraper has something to do with this. It's a conspiracy!

Obviously you can not trade players that are on the DL. Every team including the Mets does have a farm system full of players that can be brought up at any time in order to fill a roster spot. You can not say that the Mets can't trade any players for the reason that they will not have enough to field a full roster the rest of the way. Just does not make any sense. Once a team hits sell mode there is no reason not to bring up the kids and let them get their feet wet in the Bigs.
Not saying this is the case for the Mets right now, but if they slide any further in the next week or 2 it could be very possible that selling makes sense.

It's all the Mets fans fault their players are hurt...you BARELY took 2 games, and BARELY swept a minor league team. You can't beat the new champions of the east and not even the Rays. Yankee fans can have twelve straight losing years and still think they're the greatest. Especially the females with their Jeter t-shirts with their noses stuck high cuz they can't stand the smell of their own p u s s i e s.

Los Yankees....countdown to the next billion-dollar plane crash. This time its gonna be a fighter jet.
