The Mets suffered two costly injuries last night

The Mets won, which is good. But they lost two key players in doing so. One for a short time, one assumes, the other for longer.

Juan Lagares left last night’s game with a pulled right hamstring after reaching on a fielder’s choice in the seventh inning. Lagares, one assumes, will head to the disabled list.  A big blow, this, as Lagares has been hitting well and his defense is fantastic.

Less serious was Curtis Granderson‘s mishap. He crashed into the right field while during the first inning, and eventually left the game. His x-rays came back negative, but he still may miss some time.

All of which will make things tough this week as the Mets don’t get Chris Young back from the DL until Friday. So is a Bobby Abreu callup in their future? God, I hope so.

        Not as cute as your blatant inferiority complex.

        And not as cute as the patheticly adorable Mets.

        Pathetically adorable, or adorably pathetic?

      I could see this as a T-shirt when they have the cross-town games.

    That’s all well and good, but a guy off the street couldn’t hit any worse than Granderson…………certainly couldn’t swing and miss with greater frequency.

      Garanderson must still be suffering from being touched on the shoulder from the other day by a fan at the Angel game.

        I think Grandy is still touched by the lure of right field at Yankee Stadium. I’m a Yankee fan, and I like Grandy. I was sorry to see him get into really bad habits at the plate. I hope he recovers quickly both from this mishap and, more importantly, from his loss of plate discipline.

        yeah, i hear when you dislocate your untouchability, it takes a while to heal.
