It's beginning to feel like 2009 and 2010 all over again, and quick, for this year's Mets team. They got off to such a hot and positive start, only to see the last few weeks fill up with injuries.
Andres Torres, Jason Bay, Mike Pelfrey, Ruben Tejada, Josh Thole, Miguel Batista, Ronny Cedeno, and now Justin Turner have either been on or still on the Disabled List. The line up that Terry Collins has been forced to put out there the last number of games is looking way to much like a Triple-A line up.
Mike Baxter leading off, Scott Hairston hitting cleaning, Vinny Rottino with the big club itself is a head scratcher. As been stated before, this isn't a team that can afford to throw games away. The NL East is to good and the Mets don't have the depth to that. But playing with a roster that resembles a Spring Training game isn't smart at all.
