PASS THE CHIPS

PASS THE CHIPS by Tom Brennan

Elbow joints, always the elbow joints.

Jake deGrom and Matt Harvey used to have messed up elbows, now they only have messed up minds due to lack of run support.

Steve Matz has an elbow chip - will it be surgery or grin and bear it until year end?

Thor has a barking elbow joint.  A lighter Uru Hammer might help.

Zach Wheeler went from a messed up elbow joint to a nerve-pained elbow joint, and is now back soft tossing.  Hopefully, the joint will respond to Advil and he will finally be back here within 4 weeks.

Josh Edgin's elbow joint seems to be rehabilitated, but his ticket to Queens has not been issued by the ticket joint.

If the team was in Colorado, I guess one option might be to light up medicinal joints to keep Bill Clinton from telling our guys "I feel your pain."

The Mets appear to be about to face a stud whose elbow joint they were too skittish to gamble on at draft time, Lucas Giolito.  He will be a real pain in the .... to Mets' fans in the years to come.

Michael Fulmer's elbow joint must be fine - 3 earned runs in 44 innings over his last 7 starts.  If he stayed in NY, he'd probably have an inflamed elbow by now.  instead, he'll be an All Star in the AL.

Lastly, Yankee fans I know also have sore elbows - from elbowing me while they laugh about the Mets' sputtering chances at a return to post-season.   My elbow's fine, but my ribs are sore.  Ease up, fellas.

A typical Mets rollercoaster season - keep your elbows tucked in on those turns, folks.

The Mets' offense and injuries is causing fans to bend an elbow, but the resulting pain is more in the head and gastrointestinal tract.

I am waiting for Tylenol Night at Citifield. Maybe when Tyler Pill makes his debut. Which, if these guys don't stay healthy, may happen this year. Pill can, after all, hit.

Totally unrelated, but how would you like to be Michael Katz going into the clubhouse last night? St Lucie wins 17-0, racking up 21 hits, but Katz went 0 for 6 with SIX strikeouts. That has to hurt.

Jose Reyes was 0-2 and a walk, but one at bat was a line out. He also made some sort of error. Not sure if throw or fielding. Brooklyn had a heck of a night, with a late rally from runs down and a win in extras.

Today, assuming a doubleheader occurs, 2 lefties to start which we should eagerly watch in Kingsport - 19 year old Max Wotell and 20 year old Tom Szapucki, who was brilliant in his first start (6 IP, 2 hits, 0 R, 13 Ks)

Given the state of the Mets' "noffense" I think that pill might contain cyanide.

Bring up Max Wotell. The 19 year old has allowed only 3 hits in 15 pro innings. I'd say Chris Montgomery, but I read he got suspended yet again today. He must have Jennry Mejia Syndrome.

Ynoa was pounded today. Literally no one who starts in minors that is ready to be called up.
