Transplanted ex-Mets Update: Mike Hampton out for 2010
37 Year Old Mike Hampton, on the disabled list since August 18th, will have surgery on his pitching shoulder and both knees. He may miss the entire 2010 season. Hampton's infamous 8 year, $121M contract that he signed with the Rockies after helping the Mets reach the World Series in 2000, runs out after this season and he will be a free agent. For some reason his MRI results are in the hands of Mets' Dr. David Altchek. No idea why anyone would approach anyone on the Mets medical staff for medical advice!
