That’s right! I’m talking to all of you who have been screaming for Jerry Manuel’s job. Learn to stand behind your people. He knows what he’s doing.
In an interesting development shared by the Daily News this morning, if Manuel had his way, Oliver Perez would’ve been pulled a long time ago.
So what has stopped him from doing so? What else? The New York Mets front office.
Apparently, GM Omar Minaya wanted Manuel to give Perez every opportunity to right himself.
How did that work out for ya, Minaya?
From where I stand, not very well! What a genius!
Whatever happened to the days where the manager actually made the calls on the players? Minaya should not interfere with what Manuel thinks should be done with the players.
Yet, even Minaya has a breaking point.
With the Mets having the day off thanks to the game being cancelled due to rain (thank God because I surely cannot stand another minute watching the Mets bomb again), Minaya will surely being making a call to Perez to let him know his fate.
I better hear Perez is on his way to the minors. I dare say if not, I will start a rally, either in front of the SNY studios or Citi Field itself, filled with Mets fans voicing their displeasure and demanding for a change.
Please don’t make me do it Minaya. I don’t want to cause you to lose your job. It’s a tough economy, even for a baseball GM!
Perez knows he sucks right now. He is aware he is failing his team. He admitted as much when he said:
“I’m not doing anything for my team, and that’s not easy right now.“
NO KIDDING SHERLOCK!
Somebody give him a medal for coming to the most obvious conclusion since the season began…actually since his signing.
I am really at my wit’s end with Minaya. I cannot help but place the blame on him for the signing of this colossal twit.
Go ahead Mets fans! Keep crying over not signing Derek Lowe. I’m right there with you.
