God hates the Mets. He just does. Jacob deGrom went from planning to resurrect his season on Sunday to officially sticking a fork in his 2016 campaign. DeGrom season ending elbow injury news on Jacob deGrom wig day at Citi Field epitomizes what being a Mets fan is about. It’s as Mets as it gets.
The Mets love mishandling everything. Fire Ray Ramirez! Fire the entire medical staff! Fire Wilpon! Fire everyone! He apparently felt some pain in his ulnar nerve while throwing a ball around in the outfield and needs surgery that will sideline him for three months. But it is NOT surgery to repair the ulnar collateral ligament (i.e. Tommy John surgery). This surgery involves the doctors moving the nerve or something to stop irritation. Whatever. It sounds horrible.
2016 ain’t our year folks. All the young pitchers are toast. Pray that one day we have a chance to see Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Steven Matz and Zack Wheeler take the mound on consecutive days. At the moment it seems more likely that we’ll be seeing Bartolo Colon pitching at 50 years old as his 20 illegitimate children watch from the bleachers.
Just shutdown Matz. Pray for Thor. Jesus Christ pray for Thor.
