Why is everyone on Mejia's case? Eveland was the one who set up that BS. And neither of them should've have been in to begin with! Colon should've stayed!

When I think of Terry Collins, I am reminded of Mongomery Burns in the Simpson's episode "Homer At The Bat", managing the nuclear plant softball team (starring Darryl Strawberry, among other ringers). 

Burns: You! Strawberry! Good effort today. Take a lap and hit the showers. I'm putting in a right-handed batter.

Darryl: Pinch-hitting for me?

MB: Yes. You're a left-hander and so is the pitcher. If I send up a right-handed batter it's called playing the percentages. It's what smart managers do to win ball games.

Darryl: I've got nine home runs.

MB: You should be very proud. Sit down.

I still look at Mejia as a long man, I wish Familia wasn't such a nerve reck I would love to see him closing out games

If Mets starts winning because of Flores and young LFer, shouldn't Terry be fired?  It will have taken his boss doing his job for him to get results.

Not on Mejiias case, want him to be the closer, nobody is perfect, it's his first year doing it as well,So he has growing pains, no big deal he is the future.Matter of fact I like the Pen, it just needs one vet!

gpopper

Exactly, all the blame should be on that idiot manager

baldy

That's young LFer, not a left fielder named Young.

@baldy he should be replaced no matter what in my opinion but I have no faith in ownership or sandy if he even stays so who knows.

@alphaq @baldy Terry was very clear that they made him bring Flores up, but they didn't make him play him.  So he didn't.  And we were getting nothing from SS.

Damn, Left a mark on you huh?? This franchise can be very frustrating though no?

Here's a different view; if the team keeps it's inconsistency and plays below .500 ball from here on out does that vindicate him?

baldy

@theglider In some people's eyes, sure.  (Namely Mrs. Collins.)  But not mine.  He's a dope.  Look how good Girardi is, winning with no matter what they give him, outperforming his run differential.

Zott

Well you have your reasons, I root for the laundry, can't be bothered hating all the guys who don't come through, it would be a long list.

So if they win it's his fault for losing before this. And if they lose it's his fault for not winning.

I'm not defending anyone. Just trying to understand how this makes sense.

baldy

@theglider It makes sense because if Sandy, and you, believe the Mets roster is underperforming, then that's on TC, whether WF or RT play.  If the new mandated moves yield results, it wasn't his idea.  No credit.

It was an idiotic move on Collins part, win or lose. A lot of unnecessary drama thanks to Collins

Both, he's a terrible manager IMHO. I believe he hS been responsible for multiple losses this year because oh his lack of managerial skills.
