Anthony Rieber at Newsday writes about Scott Schoeneweis and his visit to the hospital yesterday:
Mets reliever Scott Schoeneweis spent the early part of yesterday in a Greenwich, Conn., hospital after waking up with searing abdominal pain and chills and calling an ambulance.
"I thought I was going to die," Schoeneweis, who has survived testicular cancer, said from Shea Stadium after the Mets' 5-3 loss to the Nationals.
Schoeneweis was feeling better after the game and blamed fellow reliever Joe Smith for spreading a stomach bug. Schoeneweis related the story of his six- to seven-hour hospital stay after Mets manager Willie Randolph revealed Schoeneweis was unavailable because he was "under the weather."
