At this point fire Terry. Year in and year out this team dies in the last few months. He is here as a manager to stop that. Same results the past 4 seasons. Enough!!

Typical Mets slop. If ownership, the front office and management doesn't care, why should I?

Randolph was the first manager in major league history to have his team's record improve by at least 12 games in each of his first two seasons

Don't you think it's odd that the entire season Freddie has only been seen around the organization when he was giving Derek Jeter his retirement gift? I mean come on, I know you had to give something to Jeter, but I'm sure if he had a choice he would've had his face blurred out to try and avoid the embarrassment of being seen. What a fraud

@dannym28  Just absurd.  They supposedly have to add Noah to the 40 man roster this offseason anyway.  What is the harm in putting him on the roster in September and giving him a start or two?  Give the fans some intrigue for a change.

@docj also is the second winningest Mets manager in team history. Not a great manager but he got the best out of an ego filled team....he deserved at least to finish the 08 season...

@docj  Where is he these days?  Talk about falling off the map.

@Tormented Mets Fan Elis not looking good but Nassib is looking like the superbowl Eli.

Stanton makes a HUGE difference. Every team has to account for him and he takes tons of pressure off of his teammates. We have no one like that. As poor a manager as Terry is, Stanton makes the Marlins better than us since their pitching is as good.

@Oren Gradus 13M this season. 16M next 2 years. 15M final season. I realize i am splitting hairs but let's be accurate with our bellyaching

@Sam Mack 

There are 30 teams, so statistically you should win it once every 30 years.  We're not due for another for nearly 10 years or so.  And that's how it looks watching the Mets play.

The problem is that now that one-third of teams make the playoffs each year, we should be making them once every three years.  But that looks about 10 years away as wel.

@1harris1 @dannym28 No harm as this team sucks anyway. But he is pitching to a 4.67 ERA in AAA. Not exactly blowing them away. I give him some slack for being in Las Vegas. I would like to see him as opposed to Dice K.

If it doesn't work out with the gmen this year, we are in longtime rebuilding mode. Already signed more free agents this year than ever before....

... I'll take my comments to the other blog. Btw, comments on Metsblog vs Giants are like 1,400:1

No. I honestly think he'll be much better next year

1) he can't get much worse

2) hopefully*** the team will be better so he can be somewhere else in the order because lead off has slashed his numbers big time
