When will the Mets learn?
I have been a Mets fan my entire life. I can remember back to the heady days of the last true Amazin' Mets team. This is a team who truely is in not only a World Series Championship drought, but a complete drought of talent. Sure we have Reyes,Wright, KRod and Johan, but it takes a lot more then that to win a division, let alone get to the big show in October and win it too.
Beltran,Delgado have both put up mediocre numbers since coming to Flushing, and thier frequent trips to the DL, one wonders how much more they have in thier tanks. The Mets essentially gave up on Pedro and what is he doing now? Going to the World Series with rival Philidelphia. The only plus was getting Billy Wagner off the shelf and moving him to Boston, but since Boston pulled a "one and out", Wagner is talking retirement. Makes you wonder if he's going to follow through or Brett Farve it, and change his mind in December and decide to make a comeback.
Looking to the future, If Matt Halladay is within reach, GRAB HIM!!! The Mets need another solid bat in the line-up, and with the 4 Horsemen coming back next year, that being Reyes,Wright,KROD and Johan, and the free agent market, lets all hope that Omar earns his paycheck.
On a sidenote, If the Mets are looking to give Manuel the boot, I'll take the job for FAR LESS then you were paying him. Sure I've never managed anything but a Fantasy League team, but I won my League in my first year. Just food for thought.
