I don't claim to be a doctor or someone who is an expert at thyroid issues but I do know that it's treatable with medication. In fact, WebMD claims that hyperthyroid is left untreated can lead to heart and bone problems. For a professional athlete, I can see why this is a concern and wanting to nip it in the bud. How was this impacting his game? And was he feeling fine before being diagnosed? Was it all precautionary?
I guess, being a Mets fan for so many years, and even though they haven't exactly given me a reason to "believe" recently, I do have to say that...I was willing to give a benefit of the doubt here and let them come to me when Jose was given the all-clear.
Not happenin' now. According to multiple reports, Jose Reyes is going to be out to the tune of 2-8 weeks. TWO TO EIGHT FUCKING WEEKS PEOPLE.
With Beltran out as well, this is simply 2009 spilling into 2010 all over again. I was in denial about it, but now it's reality.
On MSF's Facebook page, I brought back an oldie but a goodie from 2009 -- "Now's the Time to Reyes Goodbye." His value to the Mets is both a blessing and a curse.
To have the team's success riding upon his performance is a blessing. Not many teams have that spark.
However, to have the team absolutely flounder without him there. That's not a good thing either and just goes to show that this team's window for winning may have been good and gone, as Senor Solly says, after the third strike in 2006. Unfortunately, due to his recent injuries and now this health issue, his value is as a good as the junk at Sanford & Son's Salvage Yard.
So now what? I am simply dumbfounded. DUMBFOUNDED. This can be the pits.
