Head Case

Ryan Church is back on the DL (Evans returns as Alou gets a rehab start for Binghamton). His MRI came up negative, but I'm beginning to worry a bit over his long-term state, never mind what it means to right field. Migraines don't send you to the Disabled List. Migraines recede inside of fifteen days. Concussions, two in less than three months…who knows?

Get well Ryan.

    Get well Ryan!
    Although I'd love him back on the team, his long term health has to be the most important consideration. I hope he's ok.

    Endy is playing hot, and the Mets are winning, so this affords him that opportunity I guess. I hope he's okay, and I wish they'd give a little bit more information about the situation, and who made the call. I guess either he had another migraine, or didn't feel totally better, or they just weren't sure that it wasn't related.
    Time heals, so hopefully another 15 days will bring him back stronger.

    Something tells me not to worry. Endy and Easley are hot. Church will be a big part of the second half.

    What happens when the smoke clears, though?
    It's the extremely ratre hot streak that lasts until September.
    Omar has GOTto get another OFer. Maybe when the Giants clear outta here, they'll conveniently leave Randy Winn behind.
    Meanwhile, all good health wishes to Ryan Church.
