Now, Jerry Manuel had done a good job until this point in the season. I mean, he did get the Mets into first place and kept them in the heat of this playoff race in the NL East. However, due to his recent ineptitude, I believe it is time for him to go.
Unfortunately, just like Ryan Church before him, it looks like Jeff Francoeur will be taking the fall for Manuel.
Since the return of Carlos Beltran, Manuel has benched the fan favorite. Wrong outfielder! Jason Bay should be the one benched. I honestly feel this is among the worst moves ever made. Bay has cost the Mets too many runs. Right now he is more of a hindrance than an offense machine. Why not just place Angel Pagan in left.
Mets fans I hope you are happy. You wanted a trade, right? Well it looks like you are going to get one.
What is more upsetting is, according to Mike Puma of the Post, Frenchy would welcome the trade if it means more playing time for him. Give him the playing time he rightly deserves. Why punish someone who does their job? Two guys who are not doing their jobs are Bay and Manuel. Those are the culprits. Those are the ones who deserve punishment.
Puma seems to think Frenchy could be gone by Sunday. If not, he will then start on Sunday.
The rage coursing through my veins right now is unreal.
