Alou Out Again Tonight

The headline should be "This is getting ridiculous". Moises Alou came off the disabled list for a strained calf muscle yesterday only to leave the game with soreness. He’s not in the lineup tonight claiming that the calf doesn’t feel right.

I love to watch Alou hit and think he has a tremendous positive influence on the offense when he’s in the game. But this injury-prone act can’t go on forever.

I don’t know how severe the calf problem is, only Alou does. But Ryan Church tried to power through post concussion syndrome for two weeks. Alou can’t play with a sore calf for nine innings during the most trying period of the season? That is ridiculous.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
