Latest statement from the Mets: Jonathon Niese has been admitted to the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. An MRI this afternoon revealed a complete tear of the right upper hamstring tendon from the bone. He will undergo surgery for its repair. Niese is out for the remainder of the season and is expected to be ready for Spring Training.
Well, doesn’t this just take the cake? The Mets just can’t catch a break. Actually, they seem to be catching a tear right now. The question now is, who will take Niese’s place, who was taking John Maine’s place? Nelson Figueroa? Tim Redding? If those aren’t options, it sounds like the Mets will have to scour the waivers market.
In any event, it’s one more nail in the coffin of this dismal season. Are you ready to call it a season yet?
