    This one was different.

    For the first time in the 20 years i've watched the Mets i felt like i cared more then they did.....5 runs in 3 games vs the Marlins with the season on the line is just pathetic.....i really really hope most of these guys are gone before spring training comes around.

    If it wasnt for CITIFIELD next year the mets would be lucky to average 25k attendance a game after this debacle.

    I won't judge their heart. They just didn't get the job done, that's all I will say.

    Wagner going down really killed the season.

    Dont really agree about Wagner. We still would have struggled getting him the ball.

    How much they seem to care can depend on that games starting pitcher.

    They wouldve seemed very interested if Santana was on the mound today tossing another 3 hitter

    The players cared a lot more than that clown Jerry Manuel.

    His post game press conference and "funny" quipps make me sick.

    Bring in Ned Yost

    Yeah because Ned Yost didnt choke 2 years in a row or anything

    Manuel was great for this team, he made one mistake the whole year in keeping in Ayala against Derek Lee. Other than that he did the best with what he had.

    agreed...i dont think manuel should get a long term deal or anything, but he deserves a full season at the helm...the team finished short, but before he took over it looked completely dead in the water, and that at least warrants a second look...its not like there are any hot shot managerial candidates out there or anything (i mean ned yost? WTF?)...

    The most retarded thing you've ever posted. Honestly.

    So...

    The Mets scoring 2 runs for Johan Santana = Caring?
    The Mets scoring 2 runs for Oliver Perez = Not Caring?

    See the flaw in your logic, or do I have to spell it out for you?

    Mets are in the playoffs if he doesn't go down. I've never been a huge fan of his, but he wouldn't have blown as many saves as the fill-in's blew in that time span. But, injuries are part of the game. You guys could very well have K-Rod closing games for you next season.

    If you go back to the 4 game sweeps in Atlanta and SD- think about if we just could have split those- we'd have the NL East.

    There was no collapse this year, we never had a grasp on anything going into September. Let's see what a full year of Manuel can bring without a patchwork bullpen.

    We better have K-Rod next season.

    I also agree Manuel deserves another shot. No Ned Yost.

    I also think Minaya shouldn't be extended, but he's getting another pass.

    Definitely wasn't a collapse. Got outplayed. Last year was a collapse.

    I agree with you about the sweeps, but that's not what did it.

    Blowing 11 games after having the lead in or after the 8th inning did it.

    If we had even an average bullpen we would have finished 10 games in front. Every releif pitcher on this team needs to be canned. We need to make alot of RP for RP type trades just to get some new faces in here.

    agreed- a fresh pen should bring it at least to the middle of the pack which would have been good enough this year for the NL east- you never know what you will get off the scrap heap in terms of RP. The bullpen would have no where to go but up.

    That tool Mike Greenberg had some ridiculous comments about the Met "collapse". Is a 3 game lead in early september with a scrub bullpen, thin lineup, and a Maine-less rotation something you can count on?

    The problem with the Mets is they started to overachieve in the second half which got them back in the race. The Mets were never as good as they seemed. Alou, Wagner, and Maine going down along with the downfall of Heilman and Sanchez ended the Mets season. If it wasn't for Santana hoisting the team on his shoulders for the stretch run this season would have been over a week ago. I hope Wilpon has his check book ready because with out some serious additions this team is looking at another close miss next year.

    Agree with Tony. You're the boss.

    Wilpon better be ready to eat unwanted salary(Castillo) and open up the checkbook for the pen and outfield.

    Considering the cash flow from Citi Field we should raise payroll or print Met money.
