08:16 AM ET 03.26 | A significant part of the Mets' starting rotation, Shaun Marcum, has quickly become a question mark. [A] stalled bullpen session Monday left the team wondering if he will be ready to start the season. Two major league sources told the Daily News that Marcum complained of neck discomfort Monday. That occurred during a bullpen session intended as a final check to make sure he was ready to make a Grapefruit League start on Thursday. According to the sources, Marcum is now highly unlikely to make that start. Asked if Marcum's readiness for the regular season next week was a concern, a source said, "That's fair to say." Marcum's agent, Rex Gary, did not immediately respond to a telephone message.

It is probably come down to choices for you Shawn, more surgery, or get out the golf clubs and retire.

Say it isn't so....that almost never happens....usually it's on the same day

Unfortunately I was already used to reading about Marcum's injury problems every day because I live in the Milwaukee area and had to endure it the last few years with him. I don't need to read it twice a week here too. :)
