  If they continue to play Tejada, CY and A low fringe Cather, we CAN NOT win consistently. You can not win with 4 automatic outs in lineup, period. Tejada and CY MUST SIT or we will continue to lose 3 out of 5 games. TC plays the wrong guys.

You guys all make me laugh...I have Mejia as a closer and was wondering why the hell he was taken out? Live in Cleveland, so I know about BAD CLOSERS!! Should I drop him or is the manager bad?

TC said 86 pitches is like 120 in this heat so he told Colon he was done. Then said if his spot didn't come up in the top of the 9th he would've sent Colon back out there for the bot. WTF! Which one is it?

The MOST FRUSTRATING part is we HAVE a Post Season Pitching staff, THIS YEAR.  Starters and Bullpen.  NO chance with this offense, at this point i'm close to rooting for a complete collapse so they are forced to blow it all up

Sorry naysayers who spent the end of winter complaining about this signing - Bartolo is the real deal.

If Ron and Bobby O are bashing Terry...not sure why some "bloggers" on here are bashing fellow bloggers for the same sentient...isn't everyone entitled to an opinion? Not every one will be on the same page

He didn't say Colon was going to pitch the 9th. He said he was going to have Meija start the inning.

@Brent Moody  That's why I was actually rooting for StL to at least tie it if not win it in the 9th because I knew it would just be a footnote if the Mets closed it out in the 9th anyway

@Doubleday  It was still a lot of money to invest in a guy who is not a part of the solution being over 40 and is really just trade bait. There were many better ways to spend their limited resources to improve the then adding a short term piece to a hopefully long term area of strength

Kinda sad that our two best players are over 40, and yet we had no room for Dickey.

@Doubleday same ones complaining about Grandy and comparing him to Jason Bay...his numbers are not off the charts but he has already done more this season than Bay did his entire 3 years

@Dr. Jonathan Reefer The run scored should have NOTHING to do with it too.  If he JUST makes the plays it's enough reason to keep putting him out there and see what he's got

Brian Webster

@jonlga  I listened to the interview he said a lot of different things 1 of them 100% was that if his spot in the order didn't come up Colon would've started the 9th. When his spot did come up he thought a slow catcher on 1B with 2 outs was a good chance to get some more runs(my words not his) and he was going to go to Mejia to face Holliday if anyone was on so he may as well start the inning with Mejia and send up a PH

I have plenty of it, puppy. That's why I asked what I did.

@Steven Matregrano @Doubleday @jenkins Sandy structured the deal so he only had to pay Bartolo $9M of $20M this year.  There is no way he intended to keep him for year 2.

I got it now right, the real deal the next Harvey. C'mon you are talking about a pitcher that is over 40 years old. He is 7-5 not 12-0
