Kelvim Escobar Update

Feb 19, 2010, 12:17 PM EDT

Adam Rubin of the Daily News caught up with Kelvim Escobar.  He says that he won’t pick up a baseball until he’s cleared by his rehab coordinator, but that he’s not worried and that he thinks it’s a weakness issue, not an injury issue. When asked if he’ll be ready for opening day he said “I think so. It’s all going to depend how my arm responds to the exercises and how quickly my shoulder gets its strength back.”

Everyone who has spoken since my report yesterday has downplayed the possibility of an injury. something has obviously changed in the last week, however, as he has gone from throwing to no pitching activity at all. As I said yesterday, however, updates as they occur.

    The Mets would never lie about an injury, so there is nothing to worry about.
    Move along, nothing to see here.

    By tomorrow, he won’t be allowed to pick up a fork. But he’ll still be claiming he’ll be ready for opening day.

    Has Kevin Gregg signed anywhere yet, may the Buddha be gracious unto whomever….?

    That’s…..great….that makes…me…feel……better.
    Maybe he can pull a Beltran and blow off the Mets’ doctors. Then he’d at least have a fighting chance.

    BC, you have to get a grip. Look, condos in Macondo (Ma Condo – it’s a possessive construction, as in Ma=my) are as cheap as they’re ever going to get. There are some buildings on the beach where they’ll pay you to occupy a unit. Then you can be a Feesh fan and you will rapidly learn how not to give a flying fark at a rolling doughnut no matter what happens to the team. No more hair-pulling when huge gouts of money are thrown at mediocre ballplayers. No more huge amounts of money thrown at anybody, for that matter. No more dismay when a key injury makes all the difference in the standings – you go in knowing you’re finishing fourth and will land on the Gnats. Isn’t that the better way?
