Jerry Manuel, according to a tweet by Burt Hubbuch of the New York Post, has stated that Livan Hernandez could be out of the rotation after the All-Star break.
Really? So now we are playing the waiting game again.
Pull him out now. He’s proven he is not able to get the job done. Once guys jump on him in the first inning, the Mets are lucky if they can pull through.
Get the tub of lard out of the rotation. He’s taking up valuable space that can be given to someone else who just might be able to keep this team in a game. Yeah I hear that is the job of a pitcher.
You know what I’m talking about. A pitcher throws a pitch to strikeout a batter or try to keep the opposing guys off the base paths. Well Gumby has not been able to do that lately.
Now is the time to find someone who can. If you wait, you risk the team falling deeper and deeper into a hole that you will find yourself trying to climb out of. Like they are not already?
The Mets can bring up Jonathan Niese or Nelson Figueroa. I say bring up Figueroa. Give him a chance to come up and get the job done. He did it earlier this year.
The Mets can always bring up Niese and see just how much he has developed since his last mlb outing. If he has not developed, then Tony Bernzard should be fired for not doing his job.
I love it when a guy loses his job. All jobs are to be earned. If you have not done your job, you do not deserve it and should be kept away until you can do the job.
So Gumby, go into the bullpen and grab Pokey, AKA Tim Redding, and ride off into the sunset. Neither one of you are doing a blasted thing for this club.
