    Duaner Sanchez out 4 months

    Just announced by the Mets version of Sweeney Murti (Ed something I think - I'm blanking on his name). I just caught the end of the interview, but he is going to be out for 4 months.

    edit: He needs surgery on his shoulder.

    Consider his year over. Heilman is the 8th inning man now, a role he did pretty well in last year.

    Funny thing, a couple of weeks ago Pedro told Sanchez he was going to be pitching before him...guess he was right.

    Heilman will be fine for the 8th Inning role, now it's just all the more important that Mota comes back and comes back well from his suspension so we have a good option for the 7th Inning as well as Burgos isn't cutting it.

    Do you know for sure what kind of pitcher Mota will be when/if he's not juicing?

    To be honest, I'm not sure how great this bullpen will be. I like Feliciano but he can't be the everyday 7th inning guy.

    I don't think he will be good. I don't know how long he was on steroids but his career numbers are not that good.

    He had a few very good years but overall he was very average.

    3.7 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP is better than average.

    It isn't luck. You have older ballplayers the more likely they will break down. If Pedro was 24 and El Duque was 31 it would be more luck. This is just age.

    Our pitching staff wasn't of great concern to me because of our strong bullpen. However, lets break down what has happened to the Mets' pitching staff since late last year:

    - We lose our best starting pitcher (Pedro)

    - We lose (arguably) our best middle reliever from last season (Bradford)

    - We lose a guy who was amongst the top 5 set up men in all of baseball (Sanchez)

    - We lose our best relief pitcher come the end of the season and the playoffs (Mota) for the first 50 games of the season.

    Our bullpen is no longer a strength. Heilman will still be productive, as should Feliciano, but losing Sanchez, Bradford, and Mota is going to HURT. Couple that with the fact that Burgoss and Sosa have been pitching like sh.t and and we'll be starting two young kids (albeit with upside) in our rotation, and our "other" 40+ year old starter is a sneeze away from the DL and we're in major trouble. And oh yeah; Oliver Perez is also in our starting rotation.

    We better hope all the "glass half full people" are right and our offense is going to score 7 runs per game. We're going to need it if our staff is giving up 6 per game of their own.

    I thought Burgos was gonna play a key role? Just a little friendly ribbing

    I wouldn't want injuries to occur on either team. It's much more fun when both teams are at full staff and are both doing well. The atmosphere in NY just gets so much more exciting.

    I'm beginning to think that car accident is going to effectively end his career. It wouldn't surprise me if he never really comes back from this at least at a high level.

    Scott Schoeneweis, Dave Wlliams was good when called upon last year as well.....i dont think loosing bradford and sanchez hurts THAT much, esp with Smith comming around.
