Just another example of Manuel's choices for this team...simply heartbreaking for the hopeful Met's fans.....

Jerry Manuel hasn't a brain in his head as who to use in the outfield ,Tatis this year is from hunger yet Jerry uses him instead of another left handed hitter sitting on the bench who is a regular outfielder(Reid). If the Mets have a runner on first and Tatis up its a sure double play .He is trying to pull everything and he's hitting it right at the SS or third baseman ,why Howard Johnson doesn't tell him that with the hitting stance he has he's not going to hit the ball out of the infield.
He stands too far from the plate and has too long of a swing to make decent contact. He too should look at last years stance on video and he'll see his mistakes . Right now this team is punchless ,ther isn't one guy that the pitchers can fear of hitting the ball out of the park. David Wright no longer is hitting the ball out but he is for average sure Shefield can but how often can they count on him at his age . Omar better wake up and come up with some trades soon or every team in the east will pass the Mets on the way down. We need a couple of hitters and a starter or forget this season .The Phillys will eventually get a couple of pitchers and they have to power .The Marlins have the pitching from unknowns and they are hitting too .I think the Braves are done for a while and should the Mets not make any deals so are they !!
