SA is doing a good job stockpiling talent but it's clear that a power bat in the middle of the lineup is needed. Also what is needed for next year.... A new manager.

Seems like the Yankees can sign any castoff and they win.....Mets sign a bunch of non producing slugs!

1) The Wilpons need to spend  at least $110 million.

2) SA needs to be fired  Has TC playing C.Young because he spent 7.25 million.

3) fire TC can't manage pitchers.

4) trade Granderson,Colon E.Young(C.Young comes off the books) $35million to spend on a SS and 2 power hitting OUTFIELDERS.

Can we get a do over on the season?

This is why you dont contemplate the playoffs until you are at the VERY LEAST playing .500 ball. This was a lousy loss I guess, but it didnt bother me at all. I think the Mets will seriously contend for the playoffs next year, but this year has been over for a while now. Its time for all Mets fans to understand this so they can save themselves a lot of headaches over these next 7 weeks.

Wright and Granderson are both hurting this team... Among others!

Offense sucks as usual.... Collins uses 5 pitchers to get 12 outs. Brutal.

The better team always finds a way to win in close games. No surprises here. Case closed.

Collins didnt make any significant bad moves today. In fact his bullpen choices worked out well.

The blame is on the pathetic offense. The ownership and GM made a decision that they did not want to compete in the last 2 months by standing pat. So be it. Here we are...

EY getting killed by Ojeda..


That nonchalant play is a microcosm of this team in the last 4 years...just way too many plays like that...whether bad base-running, bad defense...non-chalant attitude in the field


When you have a good pitching staff and a bad offense..you cannot afford to make plays like EY did

Nice to see that Carlos Torres has his gopher-ball in late season form. HRs in three-straight games. You gotta WORK to be that lousy. Nice comeback but the offense is just so consistently anemic it was only a matter of time. No cause for alarm: Terry says Chris Young's swing is coming along.

Only a sweep of the Phillies will get my interest back, or maybe 3 out of 4...

Sandy its time to say Bye Bye to EY and CY

I want two things: the flying cars we were promised in the 21st century and the functional offense a major market should be able to put on the field.

I see both are equally likely.

Just turned it on to see the loss. I'm also seeing all the blame. So who didn't do something?

The power hitting outfielders is what they have now. It didn't work. Time to try something else.

SA is a very good GM. I think he was right in saying we could win 90 games but not with TC we can't.

Looks like your right. This game symbolizes the Mets year perfectly. Forced to wait for a home run because you don't have enough high average contact hitters to string together hits. So when you don't get the homer you lose.

@queva Currently, that's true. But for a while they carried us. Now it's Murph and Duda. We need somebody else to step up. Travis? Lagares? Kirk? Somebody - help this team out!

@SomeHighSchoolKid I don't see why this is so bad. It worked. If we win, it looks like a good move. The Nats did the same thing pretty much.

@Praggy Ptl For one game, yes he should be benched. Then this horrible player needs to hit 3rd every game for the rest of the season.
