So goes the Mets. Their closer's neck hurts and he has been out for a few days. Their All Star 3B got hurt racing for first, hurting his achy hammy, the throw airmailed anyhow. Led to their young newbie starter, Zack Wheeler pinch running. It was bound to happen eventually with the team struggling for runs, every base counting, but the immediate cause was a blown save by their fill-in closer. Another reliever is out for the year, probably.
