After months of delaying the inevitable, the Mets finally announced Jose Reyes will have surgery to clean out scar tissue around the accessory hamstring tendon behind the right knee. However, Reyes will not require surgery for the separate hamstring muscle tear.
No date has been set, but the surgery will be performed by Dallas Cowboys team doctor Dr. Daniel E. Cooper.
Cooper is one of the leading expert in the country on hamstring injuries.
Of course, the Mets said Reyes would be ready for spring training.
They always say that, but what if he isn’t? The Mets have to be thinking of a replacement in case he his not.
Lots of good discussion last night in Mets Chat Room. We’ll keep it up every Monday night in the off-season and, of course, we’ll talk during the World Series.
Woke up this morning with these items:
-The Mets and WFAN have re-upped their contract. It was a no-brainer. This is as good a time as any to ask who is your favorite and least-liked WFAN personality.
-Joba Chamberlain got into it with after being heckled by a Red Sox fan in a Nebraska strip club. Evidently, he was missed Crash Davis’ lecture that day. The papers said the Yankees would give Chamberlain “a second chance.” Really?
-The Yankees and Dallas Cowboys are in bed together. Legends Hospitality Management, a name that indicates a believe they are better than everybody else. It’s about concessions and merchandising sales. I’m waiting for the day when they merchandise oxygen.
