You know what's funny? Not only have the Mets lost Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran, Carlos Delgado, David Wright, J.J. Putz, John Maine and plenty of other underachievers to injury this season, but now they've lost their ace and "big" trade deadline acquisition as well.
Johan has discomfort in his pitching elbow while Francoeur has a torn ligament in his thumb. No one cares about Francoeur because, well, it's Jeff Francoeur. He was supposed to be the next great thing, but instead he just sucks, though he was the top hitter for the Mets since coming over.
But Johan is another story. Discomfort in the elbow. Yes please. The Mets sound downtrodden and expect the worse. That would just add an extra special kind of insult to injury if the great Santana, the man who was supposed to put this team full of choke artists over the top, has some series elbow issues.
I'd tell you I kinda feel bad for the Mets and their fans, but I don't. Because fuck the Mets, that's why.
