Rotoworld and other sites will continue to do hamstring jokes about the Dominican Torpedo Boat (possibly the dumbest nickname I've ever heard - I love it
) until they stop occurring.
If Shilstone OKed it and the Mets are OK with it, I'm OK it. I don't think Reyes needs to heal as much as he needs to get conditioned properly. Hopefully Shilstone lives up to his reputation.
I would be more worried if the Mets were treating Reyes like a piece of porcelain. If we (Mets fans and Reyes owners) have to flinch every time he slides into second it will be a long season.
