Sign Barry Bonds
They are fine, just wait it out things will get better.
lose 3 out of 4 to the nationals...are you kidding me?
what do the mets need to help turn around this season because as of right now i just dont see it...any ideas?
A real first baseman
A good manager
Alou to not sit every day game after a night game
Pedro and El Duque to pitch more than 3.1 innings combined
Reyes needs realize he is an all-star
Heilman needs to never pitch in a game that is close
Perez needs to not be a crap-shoot
Two of the games they were just on the losing end of well pitched games by both teams. Took a great diving catch to beat us today.
We'll be fine IMO especially if we get starts like the past two out of our #4 and #5 starters.
It would be nice if this team could
A) hold a lead
B) Find a way not to waste good pitching performances
C) Hit with RISP/clutch situations
D) Either get Willie Bullpen mangement classes or get someone who can do it competantly.
We need? To hit.
Everyone except Church and Schneider has been slumping.
the players just dont seem to be playing for this manager or this city...i dont know what it is but thinks need to get mixed up a bit...i like willie also but he lost this team last year...really frustrating right now
a sweep of the yankees would make me feel a lot better
we need a real thumper to hit clean-up. it used to be delgado, well at least for one year. but it's clear that he's not the guy anymore. beltran is more of 3 hitter. delgado needs to go. he strikes out or grounds out way too often. our bullpen is a mess. and of course, willie just isn't the guy, but i've been saying that for a while. we need someone who will kick a little a*s. one more thing.....reyes needs to step up his game. if this is what he is, then he's been terribly overrated.
We really need Teixera. He would fill 2 holes nicely. A 1st baseman, cleanup hitter.
Well, Delgado seems to be back in Wasting Salary mode.
I don't care what people say, our bench sucks. Marlon Anderson was always a mediocre baseball player, problem is he's playing as such now. Same with Chavez, other then Defense he really offers us nothing. Easley's good situationally, but is constantly used in spots he shouldn't be (ie: Against any RHP). Really, the only bench players I like are Castro and Pagan (And Easley when used correctly).
Reyes and Beltran need to be reminded that they're stars and need to be playing as such.
Our bullpen is ass backwards right now.....Heilman and Sanchez are being used in all key situations when Heilman has struggled all year and Sanchez has struggled the last 2 weeks. They should probably be playing the hot hands, go with Smith, Schoeneweis, Feliciano, Wise more until the other 2 get their acts togeather.
Perez needs to step it up and be that 3 in our rotation.
I don't want to say to Fire Willie, because I don't think he's to blame for much of this, but this team badly needs a wake-up call and perhaps a change of voice would do them some good. I for one would like to see HoJo manage.
Anyways, that's enough of a rant for now.
As an outsider I think that firing Willie is a good move to make, but the problems are much deeper than just Willie. Of course, that doesn't mean you don't fix a smaller problem if you can.
Firing Willie is the first step. I'd DFA Delgado by the end of June if he hasn't started to hit.
