    We're 22 games in the season. That means there's 86.5% of the season left.

    We're within 1 game of both the Braves and the Phillies, and within 2 games of the division lead.

    Relax, there's still plenty of time.

    These overreactions are embarrasing.

    Remember last year after every September loss, "We're still in first place", now it's "We're only in April".

    I know it's early but every time this team takes the field, I feel we are going to lose unless it's Maine or Santana pitching.

    That's only cause you're being a pessamist. Pelfrey is 2-1, Figueroa is 1-1, Perez is 2-1. None of the other 3 starters even have a losing record.

    Steve Trachsel won 15 games, your point?

    That there's absolutely no reason for you to be feeling that way considering all of our other 3 pitchers are .500 or better right now?

    And Trachsel is a terrible comparison considering that Perez's ERA is 3.62, Figueroa's is 4.05, and Pelfrey's is 4.43, all are above league average.

    I'm sorry but is there something wrong with me no having faith in this team right now. You honestly feel comfortable with any of those three guys especially Perez pitching a big game for this team?

    It bothers me how Mets fans have absolutely no sense of perspective and are pressing the panic buttons after 20 games of .500 ball, where we beat the Phillies head-to-head in a series twice (Which was our downfall last year).

    Lets take a look around the league right now.

    The New York Yankees are 12-12, The Cleveland Indians are 11-12, The Detroit Tigers are 10-14, The Seattle Mariners are 11-12, the Philadelphia Phillies are 13-11, The Atlanta Braves are 12-11, Colorado Rockies are 10-12, The Los Angeles Dodgers are 9-13, The San Diego Padres are 9-14.

    Those are all teams that were supposed to at the very least compete for a playoff spot.

    Meanwhile, the Chicago White Sox, the Florida Marlins, The Oakland A's, and the St. Louis Cardinals are all within a game of their division leads. Teams that are expected to finish well below .500 this year.

    It's early in the season, the cream will rise to the top, take your damn finger off the ****ing panic button.

    You honestly feel comfortable with any of those three guys especially Perez pitching a big game for this team?
    I have confidence with Perez pitching a big game, he's stepped it up for us in the past. A little less confidence with Figueroa and Pelfrey because their unproven, but I certaintly don't feel like their automatic losses like you pretty much labeled them.

    You guys sound like Yankees fans...


    But I agree, I hate when people say its only April. One more win in April means one less worry in September.

    It's a little early to be talking about 2009. That said if the Mets aren't in good shape by July or so they'll be looking for a new manager.

    I love Larry Bowa.... I want a screamer. I want someone with a little passion that's willing to get into your face... Unfortunately this team needs someone to crack the whip....

    I think the Mets will wake up real soon. There a great team they'll play it out. Worse comes to worse we trade you Cano, He's our second basemen, you might of heard of him, anyways he's got a boatload of potential I promise. Just give us Maine for him...

    honestly.....i know this is going to sound a little bit crazy, and maybe it's part nostalgic, but i wouldn't mind giving either gary carter or ron darling a shot. i know carter would want to do it, i don't know about darling though.

    Perez has won big games before---Yanks-Atlanta. If you are complaining about your teams 3rd or 4th starter who has a ERA in the 3's coming off a 15 win season, you are on the ledge and over reacting. You think the Yanks, Braves or Phillies just to name a few teams wouldn't mind trotting Perez out there every 5th day?

    Actually I would have kicked Randolph to the curb after last year.

    I know you Mets fans aren't happy, but Beltran is killing my fantasy team right now.
