The more I think of it, the more it ticks me off.
Omar Minaya and the Mets basically threw Ryan Church under the bus yesterday when he said the team’s decision on handling him on any given day was based on how he is feeling. The man has a head injury. He’s not thinking clearly to begin with.
Let me get this straight. The team flies Moises Alou from Atlanta to NY to get his calf looked at, because the team trusts its doctors. Yet, they fly Church around the country. And, he has a head injury. And this is after having a head injury earlier in the season.
Church should have been on the DL a week ago.
When Minaya said he went off the player’s evaluation of his health, I asked him where Church got his medical degree. He wasn’t pleased with the question.
I also asked him if players don’t lie. Maybe lie is a strong word, but players constantly say they are able to play when they aren’t. His response was, “I don’t go into a relationship thinking someone is going to lie.”
That’s pretty naive, especially in the baseball industry.
The man has a head injury, dammit. This has been screwed up from the start and it’s not getting any better.
