Mets' last two games - 10 errors and 9 runs scored. It is ass-kicking time now!!!
Willie is just so frigging lost. Friday he doesn't squeeze with Castillo, the best bunter in the league in a tie game with the Phillies' defense playing back because he said 'Jimy Williams was watching him like a hawk'. SO? Saturday he throws Feliciano out for a second inning after he'd thrown 20 pitches in the previous inning and against Aaron Rowand, a righty power hitter no less! Yesterday he brings in his son (Mota) after Beltran's HR actually gave the team a little momentum and Mota of course gave it right back. And today he doesn't even entertain the notion of starting Humber, instead going with the hopeless Brian Lawrence and the even more hopeless Aaron Sele to back him up. What's Sele's WHIP around two?
Willie's far from the only person associated with the Mets that needs his head examined though. Professor Pop-Up has slowly regressed this season, at first it was not running out grounders, then it was his plate discipline and now he can't even play defense. Not to mention his selfish play trying to steal third with two out, two on and Wright at the plate ran the Mets out of a big inning Saturday. For a gold-glove CF'er Beltran has now cost the Mets two games by running in on balls that went over his head, both against the Phillies. Castillo was brought in for his defense and his fundamentals. So what does he do, Saturday he loses track of the outs in the FIRST INNING and gets caught off second on Wright's liner, Sunday he botches an easy DP grounder in that five-run inning. LoDuca gets himself thrown out of the Friday game and then DiFelice comes in for him and drops a pop-up
And the team as a whole is absolutely choking.
Especially this pitching, oyiee. Mota, Sele and Lawrence are useless beings. Omar needs to forcibly remove these people from Willie, they're like his drugs. Willie needs to grow a pair and try a kid like Humber instead of going with the same old crappy vets. Look across town what happened when THEY did this! He just can't do it. He buries Feliciano and Sosa when they're pitching well while giving chance after chance to Mota and Sele, and now Feliciano and Sosa are almost as useless because of it.
