Mets Eye Santana Bullpen Today

Johan SantanaAll eyes are on Johan Santana’s bullpen session this morning in Port St. Lucie. Jerry Manuel told reporters yesterday that he isn’t overly concerned yet about the situation. But the Mets are being cautious about their ace.

Even with the Mets exercising caution, Mets fans are extremely worried and rightfully so. I’m not sure that we can say the fate of the 2009 Mets rests with Santana’s tricep but that wouldn’t be too far from the truth. If he’s out for an extended period of time this season the Mets chances of making the playoffs will be seriously impacted.

We shouldn’t get too worked up until we know the extent of the injury. At the same time, we need to start bracing ourselves for the possibility of starting the season without our ace.

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.

One thought on “Mets Eye Santana Bullpen Today”

  1. When the Mets lost Pedro in 06 that was in essence the beginning of the end.many people forget how close we came to the world series despite missing 2 starters. Johan at this point is better than either of the 2 starters the team lost in 06 and that helped kill us.
    ’nuff said
    lets hope it is not that serious, hope is all we can do now.
