My thoughts:

SERIOUSLY? Jason Bay and Mike Pelfrey are both being sent to the disabled list on the same day? Really? The two Mets that received “BOOOOOOS” when they were announced as members of the Mets on Opening Day, the two Mets that are most hated by Mets fans, and the two players that underperformed more than any other Mets player last season are both been sent to the disabled list on the same day?

Mike Pelfrey has pitched really well this season, and Jason Bay is 7-for-23 (batting average of .304) with two homeruns, a double, two RBI, and five runs in his last seven games.

So finally two players that fans dislike are playing well and what happens? They get injured out of nowhere. Big Pelf and J Bay have both had good seasons in the big leagues (Bay has had many of them), but Bay has failed miserably as a Met.

It really is a shame that Bay is now hurt just when he started hitting the ball. Pelfrey’s injury puts a lot of much needed pressure on the rest of the starting pitcheres, who recently have been pitching terribly.

What was Pelfrey’s reward for pitching eight innings of one run ball. Does he get the win? No. Does he get a chance to show Mets fans that he can pitch well? No.

Things are not looking so good in Mets-land. Santana has to bring it tonight…

As Jason Bay and Mike Pelfrey hit the DL, Mets’ fans say so what?

Just as soon as the Mets put Jason Bay (ribs) and Mike Pelfrey (elbow) on the disabled list, the Mets go ahead and win two straight games over the Miami Marlins while also ruining the Jose Reyes homecoming in the process. Everything is right in the world, correct? Not so fast. I’d like to think that the the old saying “You don’t know how much you miss something until it’s...

Mets put RHP Pelfrey, LF Bay on disabled list

The New York Mets have put starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey and left fielder Jason Bay on the 15-day disabled list. The Mets made the moves before Tuesday night's game against Miami. Pelfrey is sidelined with inflammation in his right elbow. But Mets general manager Sandy Alderson says the team hasn't ruled out a torn ligament, and says Pelfrey will get a second opinion. ...

Mets continue to hurt, place Pelfrey on DL

Earlier today, the Mets placed left fielder Jason Bay on the 15-day DL. The hits keep on coming, as the team has also placed starter Mike Pelfrey on the DL with swelling in his right elbow. Pelfrey really hasn't lived up to the high expectations placed on him by the New York media after being drafted ninth overall in the 2005 draft. That, of course, was the loaded draft that...

Bay Placed On DL, Lutz Recalled - Ike To Be Platooned?

It was announced earlier this afternoon that Jason Bay suffered a non-displaced fracture of his rib. Lutz, who was recalled from Buffalo can be used as a 3B or 1B. Chances of Lutz seeing the Hot Corner are slim, so makes one wonder if this means that Fearless Ike, after a dreadful start, might be put into a platoon situation with Lutz. Earlier this spring I wrote about the similarities of

Bay has bruised ribs day-to-day

Photo by Michael BaronJason Bay was inches from making a spectacular play that would have saved two runs, instead it ended up being the turning point of the game for the Giants and to make things worse he left the game with a rib injury due to the play.X-rays were negative and he is day-to-day with bruised ribs.  It seems like every time there are signs of life from Bay he has...

MIAMI BAY

Jason Bay to 15 day DL. Jason Bay cracked a rib on his left side in last night's game 2 diving for a ball he couldn't keep in his glove. Jason looked banged up on the lack of play but smoked a single up the middle in his next AB. The swing was one of the best Mets Blob has ever seen Jason put on a ball. The Blob knows that's not saying much. Well, for those of us who...

What the Loss of Pelfrey, Bay and Cedeno in 24 hours to the DL means

The Mets announced today that Jason Bay was going on the Disabled list with cracked rib.  This is a blow to the Mets lineup, especially with Bay showing signs of starting to produce with more regularity. In a surprising move the Mets also announced that starter Mike Pelfrey has also been placed on the DL. The Mets are saying that the move is due to elbow pain, but rumors are circulating...

GIFcap: Jason Bay Shot While Trying To Catch Ball + A Rangers Fan’s Epic Videobomb

The best part of any truly awesome defensive fail GIF is when the defensive player hits the ground like they just got shot by a sniper, and it’s only fitting that Jason Bay plays that role to perfection here, going down like a bag of bricks. Videobombing Rangers fan agrees

3 Up & 3 Down: The San Francisco Treat Edition

The Mets just wound up a four game weekend wrap-around series with the San Francisco Giants, winning only one of the four games. Sunday’s edition of Rain Out Theater, prompted a double-header on Monday night, with the Giants sweeping both games from the Mets. One would think with 36 plus innings of baseball played between these teams, 3 Ups would be easy, but the Mets were something...

The Enemy Looks Ridiculous

Well this just about brings it home, so to speak. Doesn't it? It promised to be an eventful day, but we just didn't know how eventful. We awoke to "Jose Reyes Day" with Jason Bay hitting the disabled list with a fractured rib which he accrued by flailing and missing a fly ball. This we sort of expected. But then we find out that Mike Pelfrey (the other boo twin...

Walking A Thin Line: 2012 Mets Can Be Marvelous Or Awful

I went to my first game of 2012 last Friday (4/20). Dinner at McFadden’s with my wife & my cousin & his wife beforehand, meeting up with my friend Greg Prince during and a surprisingly – and dispiritingly – quick exit after. It was a great night and a very good game, despite the final outcome. But for one bad inning, Jonathon Neise was stellar. The Mets got some...
