The last time Wheeler threw a pitch in a game, Alcantara started at 2B for the 90-loss Cubs.

Looks like I should've taken the under. We should be within about 10 days of one of the Mets pitchers having a "setback."

Apparently Scherzer is maybe going to miss Opening Day/start of the season because he has a fractured knuckle on one of his fingers on his pitching hand. No idea how or when this happened.

Grant Brisbee is a prophet: http://www.sbnation.com/2017/3/1/147784 ... ths-ranked

There will be an injury in the next four weeks that will ruin a season. It’s like all 30 teams are watching a hacky magician perform and terrified that he’ll call on them to be a part of his stupid act, except with ligaments and bones. He’ll call on one of those teams and then saw them in half. I will workshop this analogy before publishing.

Cashner is destined to be a Dodger, his entire career is basically a siren song to Friedman.

Do they make a new thread at Mets Refugees every time one of their pitchers has elbow discomfort or do they just have one injury mega-thread?

Pretty sure they make a new one and then it pretty much goes with them saying they are fine because Wheeler can just take the injured pitchers spot (even tho he hasn't pitched in god knows how long) and then saying Syndergaard, Harvey and DeGrom are all good for 30+ ace like starts so who cares. Also Cespedes is the greatest offensive player ever so if he's healthy he will hit 100 HRs to make up for losing pitchers.

Seems like it's almost time for Syndergaard to Dravecky himself and finish the cycle.

i basically go over there to laugh every time this thread is bumped.

their denial is so strong...it reminds me of us in 04-06. "when are we finally going to see the big 5 in a row?!"

they still haven't realized the answer is never and if they even do, they're probably not gonna be good anyway.

So he'll be able to be back in 5-7 weeks, in time to take Harvey, DeGrom's or Wheeler's spot. I'm heading to Vegas this weekend, planning on putting a not small wager on the Mets under 91 (where I last saw it, may be different at the book), think there's a lot of value there. The downside is huge and even their upside is a 87-90 win team.

Thornburg also having shoulder issues, I believe, for the Red Sox. Brewers have known when to get rid of relief pitchers the last 2 years.

Syndergaard left today's game with a blister.

Likelihood it's a chronic Rich Hill-type thing?

Given that it's the Mets, I'm thinking pretty high.
