Fuck fuck fuck fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. My Mets fan friend Tat literally just texted me saying Gleyber needs Tommy John and I thought he was just trolling me because we’re assholes that do that to each other. Just the other day he almost convinced me multiple Yankees from the 90s dynasty teams got addicted to drugs and/or HIV because they were so depressed after their run was over. (Definitely had to clear the search history after researching that one.)
Anyway, I know Gleyber isn’t even on the major league team, but Chase Headley is the WORST and it was basically a general assumption among Yankee fans that Gleyber was gonna come up and take his spot sooner rather than later. He was just starting to come into his own in AAA too after a slow start. Tommy John has been pretty fine-tuned to this point, but who knows what the timetable is for his return.
This really puts the Yanks in a tough spot for 2017 because I’m really not sure how much of a playoff/World Series run they can make with Chase Headley playing every day. Between this and dropping our last 6 games to the Angels and A’s, I feel like I know what it means to be a Mets fan. Get well soon, Gleyber, our future dynasty depends on it.
