Do you remember a game called “Telephone” from when you were a kid? Maybe the girls do more than the guys. Anyway, the objective of the game was you tell the person next to you something. They pass it exactly how you said it to the next person and so on and so on. Usually by the time the message gets to the last person, it is completely different from the original message.
It was one of my favorites as a kid.
Well, the Mets seem to be playing this game. People just cannot seem to get on the same wavelength. The Mets are saying one thing and the players are saying something else. This is just so wonderful.
First it Carlos Beltran with his surgery and “he said” “she said” crap. Now it is Jose Reyes. The Mets have been saying, and GM Omar Minaya said it again during the presser that Reyes has a “elevated thyroid levels”. Again, DUH!
Here is the kicker. Reyes told ESPNDeportes.com that he is fine and he was told by doctors he just has an inflammation in his throat.
Mr. Reyes, I am going to assume you never took anatomy and physiology because if you did, you would know that is where the thyroid is.
Anyway, Reyes is not buying what the doctors are telling him in New York. Here’s what I have to wonder. Could Reyes possibly be saying that because he just wants to play already? I mean, think about it. He missed almost all of last year. Don’t you think he would be anxious to play already?
So is this a case of protecting Reyes, bad communication, or an overeager shortstop? You decide.
