And the same b.s. from the Mets continues.
Last year was obviously a medical disaster, and I'm not going to blame the athletic training staff, or the team MDs for the myriad of injuries. I chalk it up to bad luck. We can't dismiss that this happened however.
Now, instead of going to "The Best Doctors in the City and the World" (and I believe it, but saying it in quotations because people will/do joke about it), the Mets players are going to other specialists.
If the Mets players (starting with Beltran and we have to see if anyone else goes outside to get other opinions), do not have confidence in the team physicians, then the Mets need to make a change.
Let's see if the 2 pm conference call (done by John Ricci, not Omar thank goodness), sheds any additional light on this situation.
Also, I seem to remember someone clammering to give Beltran "whatever contract extension he wants, because he deserves it." Anyone willing to still do that now?
