How would you grade the Mets?


We have played  half the number of games this season.  Time to grade the Mets.  Breaking into 3 categories.

 

 

Coaching. Players. Management.  

 

Coaching/Trainers: D

Why not F. Call it a curve compared to coaches such as Clint Hurdle.  Randolph is what Letterman calls a quizical Bunts to move a runner over while sacrificing an out.  An abused and overworked bullpen with RP in set roles instead of taking advantage of pitching matchups.  Why not Krod for a 4 out save?  Use Stokes more often.  Why a lineup card that placed Wright in cleanup?  Pitching Warthen has to encourage pitchers to use a second pitch and not rely solely on a heater as an out pitch.  Training staff have to be revamped.  There were early signs to Beltran and Reyes missed which became worse and now prolongs their absence.

Management: C

We landed Krod and Putz to secure our bullpen.  No fault to Omar, JJ got hurt. Those are the breaks.    So far have not sold the farm.  Shef has been suprisingly effective not knowing Delgado would be bitten by the injury bug.  However, I can not ignore how our former recent players are blossoming else where - C.J. Wilson as set-up super stud with the Rangers and  future stud Mike Carp with Seattle.  What ever money we had to bolster our lineup went to Ollie and we know how that move has cost us and ask us what if...Lowe, etc.

Players: C

We roared starting the season like a lion and then went downhill.  First Delgado then Reyes followed by Beltran and Maine.  In terms of power we are ranked in the near bottom: Last in HRs (49), but in the top 5 in SB and batting average.  Maybe we can be the A's of the east and play small ball.

 

Overall I would give the team a C
