Video: Jon Niese Injury Reaction

Here’s some video that was shot after yesterday’s game when Jon Niese left in the third inning with an apparent hamstring injury. He’s headed back to New York for an examination and I’ll be surprised if they let him make his next start. After the ugly hamstring injury he suffered last season, the Mets need to be smart with a good, young pitcher and put him on the DL for a couple of weeks to let him heal.

The video below is the post-game thoughts from Niese and Jerry Manuel.

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.
