All you fans who bitch and bitch and bitch...please just stop and go root for the Yankees...enough already. Dodgers fans might show up at the 2nd inning and leave after the 7th...but they don't cry, complain and bitch like you pussy Met fans. The last time they won the world series was 88. We're one game out! One game out of first! You guys are unable to let the last two years go...wow, I bet you're still upset your girlfriend broke up with you in High School.

All I hear is Fire Omar, Trade Reyes...Beltran sucks! Wow...what's next...get rid of Santana. Sure we got swept by the Dodgers...but check out their home record 17-3. Grow a set and get a life! This team will compete and hopefully put it all together.

In a recent blog, Post writer Joel Sherman commented that, with the Mets and their culture (read: the fans), a loss in never just a loss - it is more like a crisis and a reason to re-evaluate the worth of multiple players. While this is a fair assessment, Sherman's explanation for this behavior was unconvincing, stating simply that the team should "be ready for the intensity" of playing in New York. Too vague. He might have explained that too many current Mets' losses serve as painful reminders of all past deficiencies of this organization that remain unimproved and have led to three devastating conclusions in three consecutive years. Sensitized fans, having developed hair-trigger reactions as a result, now view games devoid of all patience, of all sympathy, of all tolerance. We are now a surly bunch. The organization has created us in this image through their inaction and now have only themselves to blame.

Great! Now we just need Beltran and Wrigth to go on the DL and we will be the new AAA major league baseball team.

Well at least we don't have to worry about a september collapse. It is going to be a June collapse this year. Mets will be looking to deal players this trading season as opposed to acquiring players.

Keep Beltran and Wright and Santana. The rest of the team should be on the trading block. Start anew with no expectations and perhaps they will surprise us all some day.

Well said, good post, but you know what,if the losing streak continues, so will the bashing and demand for Omar and Jerrys heads. BUT win 2 of 3 in Boston and most but not all will be happy.

I think Jerry Manual is the dumest manager the Mets have ever had .2 times they had runners on 3rd base with one out and didn't get a run when a squeeze play could have gotten one in .He lets the batter swing away and they hit ground balls right at the 1st baseman or 2nd basemen.If he had put the hit and run on at that time they could have gotten the runner in too but no he got s**t for it. The other game on Tuesday when Maine gave up the two hits with 2 out he should have taken him out then and got Blake out with the new pitcher but Manual left Maine in and lost another game to stupidity. This guy is not a gambler but a procrastinater and thats why the Mets are loosing games. The Cardinals win because they have thinking manager ,that divises plays to score runs .This team better go out and get a good back up for SS & 1st base or they are not even equal to the Marlins .Omar should be trying everything to fill those spots but he too procrastinates till the player needed goes to another team . We have extra pitchers that can help other teams but we don't have the offense so make a move or this season again is wasted .Wilpons wake up and get the help we need ?

Not without moving Luis Castillo, which couldn't be done. Castillo has been pretty good this season so far.
<quoted text>
And he'd play where? You wanna trade David Wright too?
<quoted text>
Omar tried to. He got more money and years from Atlanta. Good for him. He definitely won't be winning any rings with the Braves though.
<quoted text>
1. Who would have played 1B instead?
2. Steroid user? That's news to me. Got any evidence or do you just make stuff up at random?
so "letsGoMets" are you actually happy with this team? Delgado, Castillo and Perez are shinning examples of Omar's agenda. with two of these guys down and one to go I'd say sit tight. Castillo will get hurt and the Mets, again, will not compete. Buenos noches.

One more observation. Omar has done an absolutely terrible job with the farm system. The Mets have nothing at all. Funny that all prospects coming up seem to have something in common though. Right Omar?

Some analysis is needed for the above comments. There is only one New York and New Yorkers want the best. For example first rate plays on broadway and the best restaurants, the biggest big city sights in the world, the Empire State building,the Statue of Libery. I go to Atlanta, and you can fit downton Atlanta into a few city blocks of Manhatten and only one or two Atlanta buildings really would fit in. Most other cities are like this. A lot of other baseball towns have fans that go to the ballpark to see other teams. Take Pittsburgh for example, a smaller market team. Their fans don't expect championship seasons, and I used to go to a lot of Kansas City games while living in the midwest and I went to just enjoy the baseball game and if the Royals won, it was icing on the cake. New York is different, big names, big payroll,new stadium, lots of attention, fans that expect really good baseball. The Yankees realize this, the Mets do not. The Yankee culture is, get me the cream of the crop regardless of cost, i.e,Sabathia and Texeira, and A-Rod. The Mets try to follow the Yankees with K-Rod and Santana, and Beltran, but where the Yankees succeed (I know they haven't won in the past few years)the Mets seem to come up short, yet they spend 140 million dollars on a payroll that the other night went 0-10 in driving in runs with RISP. Do you know how difficult that is. All you really need to do is make contact, drive a ball deep enough or try a bunt or hit and run, but it is incredible that game after game, they can't drive in runs and after Santanna you don't know what you are going to get for starting pitching and lousy defense to boot. For what 140 million dollars? This team is a fraud and I don't see them getting much better, now or in the near future. I saw Reyes run the bases, he looks like a maniac trying to get to a base he has no business running too. Even with his speed I saw him thrown out by 3 feet at third. Coaching, what coaching. I could go on, but the bottom line this is a very mediocre team and a poor representation for the Met fans in New York.

Come on! They'll take two out of three from Boston....then sweep the Nationals, and everyone will be singing "Happy Days are Here Again". Everything is streaky in baseball.

The Red Sox just thumped the Jays in a sweep,what chance do the Mess have?.Santana got his butt kicked when he pitched in Boston(with Minnesota). I heard on Baseball tonight the the Mess were the team to beat in the N.L.
In that case,the N.L. stinks!.The Mess would be destroyed in the A.L.If the Jets played in the N.F.C.,they would make the playoffs every year,because the N.F.C. stinks!

Let me get this straight - Murphy should do poorly so as to allow for Delgado's return? This is Delgado's last year of his contract with the Mets and he will likely not resign with the Mets - it is about money and long term contracts. Murphy may be the Mets future at first. However, after seeing him play at first, he too may not be a Met in the future, unless he can hit .400 to allay his lack of defensive skills.
