Santana undergoes surgery ….

Johan Santana has arthroscopic surgery today on his left knee to repair a torn meniscus. Mets Medical Director Dr. David Altchek and Team Physician Dr. Struan Coleman from the Hospital for Special Surgery performed the surgery.

Notice how I didn’t say “successful” surgery.

Loose threads ….

What's on your mind?

What's on your mind?

For those not wanting to talk about Mike Francesa, this is what this post is all about. If there’s something else on your mind pertaining to the Mets, let me know here. Have a trade you want to propose? Want to talk about the playoffs?

Want to talk about the Giants or Jets? How about the Knicks? Do it here. Who knows, this could be a trial balloon for a new blog.

Empty barrels make the most noise

And who is more of an empty barrel than Mike Francesa?

His comments stating Ryan Church hates New York were irresponsible and baseless. When you’ve got nothing in a job like his, you have to throw something against the wall and hope it sticks.

Instead of talking to Jon Heyman for his take, why not get Church on the phone? Francesa has the juice to make that happen, but he won’t do that.

When I covered the Yankees, he would come down to Tampa to do his show from the pressbox, but in all those years, not once did I see him in the clubhouse. So, for me, it’s hard to believe it when he passes something off as fact.

There have been so many things, like saying the Mets had no shot at Santana, that were passed off as fact. We should start a list.

The Mets said Maine will begin throwing again in December.
