Yes he does… no he doesn’t…
After a number of tests in NYC Jose Reyes says that his condition is basically a “mild and perhaps temporary case of hyperthyroidism,” which may not even require any treatment at all and he could be creared to play baseball within the next 24 to 48 hours.
He was also quoted as saying he’s been all but cleared by the doctors checking him out in NYC. He told ESPN “The specialists who took care of me in New York have told me that I’m fine and that there’s nothing wrong with my thyroid… We just have to wait for the results of the additional test. The [doctors] found inflammation in my throat and no medicine to treat the thyroid or any other condition has been prescribed.”
All good news right?
So, of course, the Mets have totally different information.
Mets GM Omar Minaya was quoted as saying that Reyes DOES have “elevated thyroid levels,” and while Reyes supposedly told ESPN different, the team is still waiting on addtional test results, and THOSE results will pretty much dictate when Reyes returns to baseball action.
Minaya went on to say that we has spoken to Reyes Agent (Peter Greenberg), and team doctors but not to Reyes himself. He also said that “everyone is on the same page.”
Well, obviously not there Omar.
So, once again we seem to have a gap in communication between the Mets, medical staff and the player. What a shock.
What else does Mets management need to do to show there is a necessary change required? Wear t-shirts that say “I’m with stupid?”
This is getting out of hand guys. It seems this sort of this is just commenplace. It’s embarrasing. It really is.
