Schoe Goes Through A Scare

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."

I CANNOT believe that I am actually scared that Schoeneweis might be hurt, as, amazingly, he's going to have to be relied on if the bullpen has any chance to be respectable this season! Ugh!!
