We’ve all heard the cliche that baseball isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon. It’s like that for the fans, too. Sometimes we’ve got to grind, just like the players. For me, this is one of those times. The injuries have just worn me down. My desire is to see Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard back on the mound and Francisco Lindor back at shortstop. And I’m done with the nagging injuries to Brandon Nimmo. We lost him for six weeks with the finger injury – wasn’t that enough? You’ve got to mess with his hamstring, too? Wasn’t it enough to take Michael Conforto and Jeff McNeil and Carlos Carrasco away for hamstrings?
With all of the injuries and ineffectiveness of the MLB club, I haven’t even been able to process the Kumar Rocker snafu. Part of me is okay with taking the pick next year. But part of me wonders what all the fuss is about. So what if he needs TJ surgery? So he sits out next year – that’s no worse than drafting a guy next year, is it? It seems like a Wilponian move to save money and spite Scott Boras.
