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.
