I don’t know about you all, but the season is over. Let go. Stop holding onto hope. The seasons over. Too many obstacles, too many injuries.
We have had so many people on the DL this year. Some for longer than others. Please enjoy this 2009 Mets tribute to those we lost.
And remember. It’s over.
UPDATE: Wow, that wasn’t nearly as fun as I thought it would be… Congrats and a hearty Mazel Tov to Matt Pignataro from Seven Train to Shea. for knowing it was CORY SULLIVAN.Matt send us your address and size in an email!
Who correctly identifies who is the Met in the picture below. Your answer must be a) correct and b) the first correct answer in the comment section below.
A report this morning out of the ESPN Headquarters suggests Mariners 3B, Adrian Beltre’s right testicle is in critical but stable condition after being hit by a ball on the ball in the 9th inning off the bat of Alexei Ramirez.
Below is a snippet of the article:
Beltre said he never wore a cup while playing on fields full of holes and rocks in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The only time he’s ever worn one was in 1996, in his first days as a 17-year-old Class-A player for the Dodgers. And that was only because the Dodgers briefly tried fining him for not wearing one.
“I probably would have paid my whole paycheck to not wear it,” he said last year, adding — not with a knock but a pound on wood — that he has yet to have a ball strike him where it would hurt most. Until Wednesday.
After a few fines, the Dodgers stopped because they saw no matter the cost, Beltre was not going to wear a cup.
“It’s the discomfort of using it,” he said. “I can’t play wearing it.”
This is insane, how do you not wear a cup when you play 3B!?
If the injury is serious enough, Beltre would join the ranks of Best Players With One Nut, which include Lowell, Schoenweiss, Kruk and a few others we don’t know about.
This report also said that Jake Peavy doesn’t wear a cup either, which I think is pretty bad ass.
