The former Mets pitcher speaks out (or rather tweets out) about the current injury situation.

Just the other day I wrote about how the Mets aren’t simply having bad luck, they’re also making poor decisions. Well, Pedro Martinez seems to be thinking along the same lines — that all of these injuries aren’t just bad luck. That there has to be something wrong with the trainers, I mean, how the team trains their players.

It all started when Martinez tweeted about Noah Syndergaard, agreeing that it was an extremely poor decision for him to not get an MRI done.

 
This then continued into how bad this situation is with Syndergaard potentially out for three months.

 
Then Martinez proceeds to remind us all about how more than just Syndergaard is injured, and how this team is once again injury-plagued. And, of course, how it’s not like this is the first season that this is happening.

 
Finally, Martinez ends his tweets by saying what most of us have been thinking. That this all can’t just be a coincidence. There has to be a reason this keeps happening. And that reason? Well, it’s not the fault of the players.

Next: Reyes’ recent resurgence fuels the offense

Pedro, thank you. Thank you for tweeting what we’ve been thinking. The amount of injuries so far this season (just barely over a month in!) has just been absurd, and something needs to be done.
