I will never forget this. I think this is a waste for players...they will only get hurt...its just not normal.
I hate that D. Wright is playing this year, however, I am glad that he is the only Met participating.
Wasn't Reyes hurt there in 2009???
I remember that we had lots of guys there that year...I think Johan Santana went tooo. F-mart is another name that comes to mind...wasn't JJ Putz there tooo???
I just checked...Beltran and Reyes were both hurt in May of 2009...one can think that the WBS may have been a contributing factor in their errors.
Well...we were doomed to start with.....
We only had D. Wright and J. Reyes as prospects....and NO pitching prospects....Perez and Maine came via trade and were not super-prospects.
Most teams start a dynasty with 7-10 core players....we did it with a huge free signing (Beltran) a trade (Delgado) and 2 prospects (Wright and Reyes).
This time...we have more prospects....Murphy, Davis, Wright, and 3 golden pitchers, Harvey, Wheeler and Syndergard.
Correct me if I am wrong... Reyes tore a hamstring, or his calf running to first in LA, in May. The fact that he was playing baseball in March does not really matter, right? If it were a stress injury, then he would have just gotten hurt in June or July. Beltran also got hurt when he slid into the wall to make a catch. How did the WBC cause that? You also forgot Delgado got hurt in 2009 too. He had a bad slide and hurt his hip - in May. Once again, it must have been the WBC. DW got beaned.... because of the WBC. It all makes sense.
and, there was 2007 and 2008... maybe Sanchez's taxi cab accident in 2006 was cause by the WBC too.
putz was hurt in the WBC
perez never got in good shape before the wbc and was ineffective; many put his later struggles on a phantom injury that this may have led to
beltran has arthritic knees - nothing more, nothing less
20 years ago i would have said 3 championships. However, in todays day and age, back to back trips to the postseason would constitute a dynasty.
