Sports: Mets are screwed

No way in Hell the Mets will win in the post season with out Pedro. And now it looks like Pedro is out for the whole post season with a torn tendon in his calf muscle.
Pedro Martinez is out for the postseason after an exam Thursday showed the New York Mets ace has a torn tendon in his left calf muscle. The Mets, who won their first NL East title since 1988 with Martinez battling injuries most of the season, won't have the three-time Cy Young Award winner at all in the playoffs.

Martinez returned to New York after getting knocked around badly in his final start of the regular season Wednesday night, a 13-1 loss to Atlanta. An MRI showed a tear in the left calf - different from the right calf injury that recently put him on the disabled list for a month and was thought to be his major concern.

"He did mention (Wednesday) that he felt some pain in the other leg," general manager Omar Minaya said Thursday night during the finale of a three-game series in Atlanta. "The bottom line is he's not going to be available."

Martinez will need four to six weeks to recover from the final setback of an injury-plagued season. Surgery will not be required.

The Mets might be able to pound the ball past the first round, but I don't see anyway they can win a 7 game series with piss pour pitching. A healthy Pedro was there only change they had to winning it all in my opinion.
