    How does Willie Randolf get a pass

    With two big offseason acquisitions to help him, this Mets team folded just like those before them. And there is almost no criticism of the manager.

    He is no better than anybody else we have had in here in recent years.

    Despite the fact he's a horrible in-game manager, he held the team together in mid-season, however I feel he's losing the team in this latest slide. I think he's in over his head.

    I don't watch Met games religiously like I do Yankee games so I haven't seen Willie's in-game managing as much as you guys. But, I did notice that with men on 1st and 3rd with 1 out in the 9th inning, Willie played the defense in instead of DP depth. That's incorrect IMO.

    But, the question is why is he a bad in-game manager. Why was Lee Mazzili a bad in game manager? The reason is they learned this from the most overated manager in sports: Joe Torre. And why does this man get a pass? Because he's Joe Torre. Why did nobody say anything when the Jets played the defense in in 2001 against Arizona with 1 out and a man on 1st and 3rd? Had he put the defense in DP depth, as he should have, the Luis Gonzalez ball would have been caught.

    wow, calm down. you don't have to call me a loser because i like the mets. i think that your jumping to conclusions so fast.

    i even criticized the mets, but you still call me a loser?

    sorry man, i don't make any enemies, (as the people of this board know), but your now my first. i just don't understand how some people can be so cold, and heartless.

    I agree...I don't think the Jets should have even been playing baseball...they're way better at football.

    Hard to criticize him too much, we had the worst bullpen in the league. And our big free agent acquisition has been a total bust.
