    Willie begining to bother me!

    I was always behind Willie, even when he was often harshly criticized by Mets fans. But I am begining to hate his ways. He isn't getting his players to respond anymore.. He wont ever get himself thrown out of a game to fire the guys up(not saying thats important.) He is also getting too cute with small ball..

    Once again tie game, man on 1st 0 outs,, he decides to give up a free out by sacrafice bunting, which also failed.. I understand its a close game and that at times is the given decision. I just hate giving that free out, especially with a guy with 0 careeer successfull sac bunts in Gomez.. Anyone else ready to see willie go even if the Mets make the playoffs?

    I have no problem with him laying a bunt down there, you gotta blame the batter for bunting at a ball a foot and a half outside the zone.
    My only problem with Willie right now is he needs to start treating these games like its the playoffs. You cant let a starter get tagged for 8 runs, in a playoff environment you have a short hook and bring in a starter to relieve if you have to. If you have an 8 game lead you manage the way Willie is managing. With a 1.5 lead you cant save for tomorrow because it might not come.

    Also whats with Green being unavailable to play tonight. In the middle of a playoff race and he will not even be availalbe? I know its a holdiday, but games are played on Easter, Good Friday, Christmas (football, basketball)Good riddance.

    i don't like willie either, but he won't be fired even if the mets fail to make the play-offs, imo. but no matter wtf the mets do with the rest of the season, minaya better get on the f*cking ball this offseaosn and get this team some decent pitching. in this day and age of baseball you just can't do it with a below average bullpen.
