    OH, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. :-(
    To quote Vin Scully via the Simpsons via Greg,
    “That saddens me.”

    That is truly horrible.
    Why, in St. Pedro's name, do the Mets training and medical staff never see these things coming? Do they not check his whole body between starts? How many starts has Pedro gone out there already injured (more than usual) this year? Five? Six? What, if he doesn't complain he must be fine? Remember Victor Zambrano?
    How did we let such a valuable player go out there, time after time, and destroy himself? If we can supposedly win so well without him, why is it always after we lose that we discover the heartbreaking injury?
    If we had accepted what is now our fate, a Pedro-less postseason, we might have been able to spare him (and ourselves) this crippling malady. WTF?
    I'm sorry, Pedro. Our bad. I look forward to that far-off day when it'll read Pedro Martinez Strikeout #3000! on the big board at Shea. Don't give up on us.

    Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I've been thinking it was really the shoulder the whole time.

    I take it you weren't at Shea last Monday…

    Haha. No, I wasn't, but I've heard. Just wishful thinking, I guess.

    Didn't Petey come here with some damage in that shoulder that we were told shouldn't affect him, he's had it for years?

    I think he has been losing body parts by overcompensating for his original toe injury. He forces weight to one leg and throws out one calf, then the other, then he can't use the full force of his legs for pitching so he starts to throw harder from the shoulder. Before you know it, “his whole body hurts”.
    Anyone over the age of 40 knows precisely what this feels like.
    Hang in there Pedro, get better and be the leader on the bench this team needs right now!
