Mets outdo themselves: Brandon Nimmo out due to undercooked chicken

The Mets outfielder was absent from team workouts and the ensuing exhibition game against the Marlins on Wednesday after becoming ill from undercooked chicken, according to manager Mickey Callaway.

The culprit? Nimmo himself.

“He cooked some chicken and didn’t know how to cook, so he was throwing up all night,” Callaway said. “We have to teach him how to cook so he doesn’t miss any more games.”

Callaway indicated it’s likely Nimmo will remain sidelined Thursday because of dehydration concerns that could lead to cramping.

If this news isn't used in a Seamless ad that's a missed opportunity (although it would be better if Nimmo had more name recognition. Even in NY I suspect most people have never heard of him).

Have I just been lucky not ever getting food poisoning or is this something people say when they need to come up with an excuse?? Because I have eaten all kinds of different food

This is not the Mets outdoing themselves. This is standard Mets. The Mets outdoing themselves would be "Brandon Nimmo dead due to undercooked chicken."

Also, MotH, you've just been lucky in avoiding ever getting food poisoning. However, I don't doubt that some people falsely claim food poisoning, because it's easier to explain to an employer than "I've got the uncontrollable shits/pukes due to drinking way too much last night," which seems like the sort of thing that can certainly happen to players occasionally in spring training.

It's effectively impossible to tell food poisoning from a stomach virus, unless a group of people eat together and you all get the exact symptoms at the same time.

I'm an adventurous eater with a pretty strong stomach, but I did get what I am pretty sure was food poisoning once. I couldn't keep down food for 2-3 days and had a terrible fever. It was the worst I have felt in my life. (I've never had a properly diagnosed case of food poisoning or the stomach flu, but I'm pretty sure this wasn't the latter.)

nice Jersey angle.

Nimmo seems like he would be voted "Least Likely Met To Be Taken Ill Due To Going On A Bender" by his teammates. he's a Wyoming boy (his HS didn't even have a baseball team). He looks like the kind of guy who wouldn't even go to an R-rated movie (and might get his ID checked if he tried).

if Nimmo says this is how it happened, I totally believe it.

What if you go to McDonalds, bite into a Big Mac, think "that tastes weird," look down, see that the patties are basically pink, shrug, eat the rest of the Big Mac, then have the most violent intestinal distress of your life lasting from midnight until the sun comes up? Asking for a friend.

That sounds like flu.

It came the same day I ate a sandwich I had purchased in Penn Station for lunch and a burger from Wendy's for dinner, so I just assumed food poisoning.

2-3 days and high fever is classic flu symptoms. If you're passing through Penn Station every day, it's pretty easy to pick up a virus too.

The symptoms of garden-variety food poisoning are quite specific. Four to six hours after ingestion, your stomach will begin burning, within another hour or so you will begin vomiting and have diarrhea, which will continue for probably another six to eight hours (might be more, I'm going from memory of when this happened to me). You will spend the next day feeling like an exceedingly limp dishrag and wondering if a few spoons of custard or ice cream might be accepted by your stomach, or if it will forever after reject everything you offer it.

I had taken a smidgen of what turned out to be a spoiled tuna casserole, eaten less than a quarter of that smidgen. The experience was so memorable that I have not eaten tuna casserole in the 30 years since then.

Pretty sure I contracted food poisoning about 8 years ago after a meal at Golden Corral. (Why, yes, I still go there occasionally. Damn if they don't have really good mashed potatoes.)

I don't -- I was just taking Amtrak up to Boston for the weekend. Had the sandwich on the train and the burger when I arrived in Boston that evening. Woke up in the middle of the night vomiting. I haven't eaten at Wendy's or had a fast food burger in the 10+ years since, so even if it was the flu, the food poisoning narrative was good for my overall health.

I thought I read something a while ago that there is no virus that only lasts 24 hours. If you have a stomach illness that lasts less than 24 hours it's almost certainly something you ate. Could be wrong though.

I’ve had it twice. It really sucks, and the feel of it is very different than other kinds of stomach problems. Your stomach is almost fizzing, like there’s a huge lump of Alka-Seltzer in there, and it keeps getting worse and worse over about four hours of continual shitting and vomiting, and then there’s always this one moment where you think, “Well, I guess this is how I’m going to die.” And then right after that, usually within a couple minutes, you pass this one particular high-velocity turd that goes into the toilet like it was shot out of a potato cannon, and you lie down on the tile floor in your bathroom and take a brief nap, and when you wake up you still feel lousy and your cup still runneth over if you know what I mean, but you’re pretty sure you’re going to live.

The time I think I had food poisoning (suspect: one of those McDonald's wraps that has both chicken and lettuce), I regressed so far I was nearly back in the womb. After some of the worst couple hours of my life, I was literally curled up on the tile floor in my mom's bathroom (in my 30's, but visiting). My mom came in and put a blanket on me and I fell asleep. I spent the entire next day curled up in a recliner at my parents, and by the next day I was fine.

since we are "going there"......

you start to sense that an invisible boa constrictor has surrounded your abdomen - and it's slowly tightening its grip.

you try to ignore it, but then you begin to perspire - a lot.

next comes the tagteam "reversals of fortune." the lucky ones are able to alternate the output. the others? Cleanup in Aisle Five...

this goes on for maybe 4 to 8 hours. sleep is not an option. nothing else is an option, really.

and then..... it's over, like a few of those bad horror movies where the writer ran out of ideas. it just ends.

that's not food poisoning - it's a kidney stone making its way around the horn, to use a baseball term.

if you're lucky, there is no sequel.

if not, within the next 8 to 12 hours you will experience pain akin to childbirth - without the 18 years of financial commitment, but it won't seem like a better scenario in the short term.

moral of the story: drink more water. lots more water. every day.

did I mention drinking more water?

do that.

How did I know -- without even looking -- that this was a Post article?

Another headline from today's Post...

"How Patriots owner Robert Kraft could get off in prostitution case"

Très drôle!

When our family got our first microwave in 1983, our Dad decided to launch the appliance by roasting a chicken in it.

It was 1983, no one knew any better.

So he "roasted" this chicken according to the instructions in his newly purchased microwave cookbook.

He brought the chicken to the table, all proud of himself. My parents had just broken up, so he might have been trying to compensate by cooking us a meal. I don't know, to this day he remains a terrible cook. Anyway, Betty Crocker really ###### us in the ass (girls didn't really do that to boys back then, it was a different time, it's hard for the younger generation to understand these things, but it was noteworthy because female on male anal wasn't a thing in 1983, take my word on this) that night, because after following her instructions, this chicken was still raw, raw like sushi (see, I'm trying to evoke a certain place and time by dropping in cultural references from that time...and doing a terrible job because that album wouldn't come out for another six years, oh well, you get what you pay for). OK, my Dad didn't know anything about the Food Safety Dance, there that's better. Very 1983.

Where was I?

Oh yeah, we said, "That chicken is raw!"

My Dad said, "Food does not brown in the microwave."

And we said, "OK, if you say so. But that chicken is pink...and slimy. It's raw like..." No, no, we said, "Sweet dreams are not made of this."

My Dad, who was a high school science teacher, then started getting all haughty, talking about polar molecules and dielectric heating and ####, and how we were ignorant, snot nosed kids. This is a true story, I'm baring my soul here...kind of awkward how dysfunctional the whole thing was.

We said, "Quit blinding us with science, Dad." (See how much better I'm getting at this?) Anyway, we said, "We're not eating that. It's raw."

He got really angry, having invested his credentials as a scientist in the excellence of this chicken, and us not bowing before his authority. He shook his chicken carving equipment with rage, brandishing them like they were weapons, it was really hard not to LOL (not that anybody would have put it like that at the time) with his giant two-pronged chicken carving fork, like he was an ancient Greek god...one tine short of a trident.

And he was about to have a Ποσειδῶν adventure.

He started to carve this chicken, but carve isn't really the right word, it was more like surgery on living flesh, because the chicken meat was raw and bloody. Blood was flying everywhere, he cut a piece out of the breast and put it on his plate. We're looking at him, I mean teenagers always look at their parents with disdain, but we were laughing contemptuously. The plate was one of those Corelle livingware things, which is fitting, because that meat was very close to still living. So blood was pooling up on the livingware, like it was rare steak, and my father was trying to cut a bite-size piece, but it was too mushy and just slid all over the plate like...like a...a Swordfishtrombone! He managed to cut a strip off of it, plunged his fork into it...

You know, now that I'm telling this story, it sounds pretty awful. We were like half of the Brady Bunch, but the shitty half. My Dad even had a perm, just like Brady Dad, except we never got to go to Hawaii for him to get it. So maybe we were more like Two and a Half Men, but without the Malibu beach house. We didn't even have a Chevy Malibu, we had a Bronco II! My brother and I hated the Bronco II because it only had 2 doors, and it was tiny in the back, so we could barely get in, and once we got in, we could barely fit. And he only got it because his new girlfriend had a cabin that was only accessible by 4X4, so it really seemed to us that he was prioritising his #### over his children, but now that I'm an over the hill old fart myself I can see that perhaps we were judging him to harshly on that particular score. Just checking, I see they didn't make Bronco IIs until 1984, so that must have happened a little later.

Bronco IIs still suck!

Sorry, my Dad, with this look of arrogance, all smug with his knowledge of cavity magnetrons and other super advanced non-browning scientific stuff, held up his fork triumphantly with the raw chicken meat draping off of it, and like he was Clint Eastwood or somebody, squinted his eyes and said, "The microwave does not brown the food." And he slurped the chicken right off the fork. Oh, it was disgusting, blood running off his chin. We're looking at him, with great expectations, not knowing what was going to happen. He was chewing and chewing, but that supercilious ############ (his new girlfriend had two sons too) was never going to admit that the chicken was raw. He's looking at us through his squint, nodding like he was some kind of Bill Nye and was dragging us Neanderthals into the future...

Until he tried to swallow the chicken.

I guess a big long string of raw chicken meat got caught in his throat, because he started to choke (he was choking on chicken, don't be immature). He was making the noise people make when they hork up loogies, but it wasn't a loogie, it was chicken. "Hachhhooh. Hachhhooh!"

"Dad! Dad! Are you OK?"

"Hachhhooh. Hachhhooh! Hachhhooh. Hachhhooh!"

He staggered over to the kitchen sink, clutching at the counter, his squint had turned into bulging bug eyes. "Hachhhooh. Hachhhooh! Hachhhooh. Hachhhooh!".

And right into the sink, he managed to hork out this strip of chicken slime, and his eyes receded back into his head. Instead of great expectations, we got great expectorations! We thought it was over...

But it wasn't over.

A thin trail of vomit started to trickle out of his mouth. And then his body had a spasm, and puke began to stream out of his mouth, right down his chin, and then his neck...and onto his shirt. So he looks at us, tears in his eyes, puke on his chin, and says...."I think the chicken may have been undercooked."

So that's the story. It could have only happened in the 80s, because by 1994, we all knew better.

Here's my question; how much chicken did he eat? Like MoTH I've never had food poisoning despite having the eating habits of a teenager. On occasion I've taken a bite of something that was a bit funky and after that one bite, maybe I'd take a second bite but then I'd just toss it. Like did Nimmo just think "that's a bit off" and keep on keepin' on?

I don't believe that. We just had a similar stomach bug go through our family. Everyone was sick for 24-36 hours, but each a few days apart from the others. First my niece, them my Mom, then my nephew and sister, and then me. This was spread over a week's time.

This is pretty much how I felt when I got Norwalk virus. I lost track of time, but I was only sick 10-12 hours (but it was overnight, so once the vomiting/diarhea calmed down enough I could sleep, it was ~9 am.

The worst food poisoning I ever had was in Brunei, which if you don't know is a small Islamic sultanate on the island of Borneo. I went out to eat by myself at a perfectly nice seeming restaurant, came back and tried to work out but was not feeling right, and went to bed. I woke up around 2 am, puked, and then went back to sleep thinking it was over. I got up around six and headed to airport, flight around 730, and as soon as the plane goes up I am shaking, puking uncontrollably in the air sickness bag, just unbelievably sick. I am on a flight to Kota Kinabula, in Malaysia, where I had planned to spend a day, tooling around the beach before heading home. Luckily, some of my firm's clients are on the flight with me, and they are all big oil and have a fancy hotel, so they take me with them and check me into a day room, where I puke my guts out constantly for about 8 hours until it is time for my next flight, to Kuala Lumpur, where I puke again but manage to eat a little bit of chocolate, before I get on my next flight, to Bangkok, where I manage to make it to the hotel before I puke one final time and crash asleep. End result: I threw up in four cities in three countries in the space of about 18 hours.

You mean like a fork or a knife? OK, I concede the point. Rare steak may even be as dangerous as the salad that you eat with the same utensils. But probably not.

Everything is at risk of contamination. Peanut butter and alfalfa sprouts and cantaloupes and romaine lettuce have much worse public health histories than undercooked steaks.

In college I took a break from the computer lab and went to dinner at Costco. Somebody dared me to wrap a piece of pizza around a hot dog and eat it. It actually tasted pretty good... until I was up all night barfing during finals week. I figured it was the food until other people in the lab had the same experience but no hot dog / pizza combo.

Also yes there is a point in which you are sure the end is near.

Do they serve them cooked at the actual Costco? I know they have plenty of fine stuff that you can take home and cook yourself, but I've never heard of anyone actually going to Costco for a dining experience.

The buck & a half hot dog & Pepsi combo is a worthwhile on-site lunch.

Their dogs like all hot dogs gives me indigestion and though I usually regret it I’ll get their Italian sausage. Their pizza is pretty good for 10 bucks.

You can't beat the Costco pizza for $10 to feed the family (or a few of them for a party). And the $1.50 hot dog/soda is great, although I have no willpower and will also get either a churro for a buck or the $1.50 soft serve ice cream as well.

I believe they call it yoghurt.
