Just got this off the Mets site and I for one am shocked and pissed if this is true:
Martinez, Randolph and pitching coach Rick Peterson were pleased with the results of his pitching in a side session and a simulated game last week, but Martinez revealed after the game that his right calf injury was more than just a strain, as was reported.
"The last time [Aug. 14], it was pure pain," Martinez said. "I couldn't put my foot all the way down. As a matter of fact, there was a tear there.
Are you kidding me ??!! Shouldn't we know this type of information while we're sitting back an waiting to make a playoff appearance ??!! They tried to pass of a tear as a strain ?!?! All this time us dumb Mets fans are believing Pedro is getting a nice rest before the playoffs and he'll be back to his old self...after all it's ONLY a strain !!
