Gammons on The Big Show: Sox were ’scared to death’ of Bay’s knees

So what happened with Jason Bay and the Red Sox? They wanted him, but they were scared to death of his knees. I never got the impression from either side, from his agents or his club, that the shoulder was that big of a deal. But they were really afraid of both knees and that’s why they dropped the offer from four years to two years. Somebody said to me, "Gee, there was only one team that went after him the Mets." I said, "Yeah, you don’t think that the Angels have requested MRIs? You don’t think the Mariners have requested? They weren’t in on him either." The Mets were the only team in on Jason, which is unfortunate because he played his heart out for that team. He’s a great guy but there were serious physical concerns that were there, and Dr. Gill thought it was a tremendous risk to giving him a four-year contract without any questions. John Lackey went with [a contract with conditions] and JD Drew went with it. LOLMets.

More Mets down: Castillo sprains ankle, Niese strains hamstring


So Luis Castillo sprained his ankle walking down the dugout stairs, while Jonathon Niese strained his hammy stretching for a throw at first. I almost feel bad for the Mets the way things have gone for them...naaaah.

Beltran's Knee Injury May Be Career-Threatening


Apparently, Carlos Beltran's knee is not getting any better, and the only option to try and relieve his pain could be microfracture. I don't know if there are any big-time baseball players who have had the procedure done, but it would certainly be a difficult road back to excellence. Too bad for Carlos if this comes to pass, but it's certainly not a bad thing for the Bravos if the Mets are stuck paying a guy big money to either not play or be a shadow of his former self.
