Mets Morning News: Santana's Tired Shoulder, A Mature Isringhausen,Reyes' Music Career

The Mets open up a three-game series with Atlanta tonight at Citi Field. R.A. Dickey will get the start against Tim Hudson. Game time is 7:10 p.m.

If you missed it, after being examined in New York on Thursday, Johan Santana was diagnosed with shoulder fatigue. He will begin throwing again once his shoulder is at full strength.

As Andy McCullough of The Star-Ledger writes, this time around, the Mets have a much calmer and wiser Jason Isringhausen. It's been evident after his last game in which he blew what could have been career-save number 299.
"Unless you want to just drive yourself absolutely nuts …" Isringhausen said. His voice trailed off. His shoulders shrugged. "It’s just doesn’t affect me anymore."

In his early days as a closer, Isringhausen admits he struggled with anger after blowing a game. Some clubhouses come equipped with punching bags presented as targets for frustration. Some don’t. “I used to get a lot of bills from [stuff] being broke,” Isringhausen said.
The New York Times takes a look at Jose Reyes' off-the-field music career. In July, Reyes released his first music video, "No Hay Amigo."
"This is my hobby," Reyes said of his music. "A lot of baseball players like to fish and have other hobbies. My hobby is music. When it’s the off-season, I like to go to the studio, hang out with friends and make music."
