I love how Jerry said we looked unprepared against Livan...gee, that's an accomplishment considering he was ON the Mets most of last year, if anyone should have known how he pitches it's us.

Maybe he's just trying to get fired at this point, or he's beyond an airhead to say something like that. With the schedule the Mets have coming up I'm not sure Jerry sees May at this point :blink:

Sitting at home in California and enjoying the beautiful weather while collecting a good paycheck without having do anything doesn't sound too bad. :lol:

In all seriousness, whatever happens, it should be a win-win situation; if the Mets start winning games - awesome, of course. And if the Mets lose - its going to suck, but thankfully Jerry and Omar will likely be canned.

Maine is having a disastrous outing. His control stinks again, his slider has been very inconsistent though his change-up has been alright, and his 88-89 mph fastball isn't beating anyone, not even the pitcher. Maine also made a God-awful throwing error on a silly, rushed side-arm throw to 1B.

Maine is in big trouble if this is where his velocity is going to sit from now on. When hes pitched well (2006 and 2007), his best pitch has always been his fastball; now that he can barely top 90 is a really bad sign. His secondary pitches were always pretty much average to begin with, so its not like he can prosper with an underwhelming fastball.

One good thing to come out of the Mets' season ending early (this group doesn't have the talent nor the fight to overcome a bad start...by the time they come back to CitiField, the season will likely be over, from a contention standpoint):

The charade is over. No more of Omar's used car salesman pitches about how if everyone performs above their heads, the Mets will contend. I'm sure he'll throw Jerry under the bus at some point (and Jerry deserves it...he's already managing and sounding like a guy who's given up and resigned himself to the fact that his team is a bunch of hapless losers), but hopefully, FINALLY, the Wilpons will wake up and realize this team is going nowhere under the current management and lose Omar too, and that it's time for a new voice and a new approach.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I really, really wish Mejia was where he belonged - in AA, being developed as a starter.

But we have 2 idiots trying to save their jobs. Too bad its not working.

2-6 and already 5 games out of first. Unbelievable, yet VERY believable.

It's going to be hard to tell which will be more dead...this thread, or CitiField. At this rate this thread will soon be "nmig's updates on Mets' minor league prospects". Which I like reading, because they at least give me hope for the future. But the 2010 Mets are already done. The Wilpons had their chance to clean house and didn't take care of business, but for the love of God don't let this stench linger NOW when the season's already over. Do the right thing and start planning for '11 and beyond ASAP...Jerry and Omar aren't in those plans.

Big Pelf' turns in a much-needed gem: 7 innings, 5 hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, 6 strikeouts.

His demeanor on the mound looks so much different this year; he looks so relaxed on the mound, throwing free and easy. Hes really utilizing his secondary pitches too, particularly his newly-developed splitter. Its only 2 starts, but I love what I've seen from Mike so far.

In a season like this, gotta look for positives wherever you can find them. Good for Pelf, and Francoeur for that matter here in the early going.

And Castillo, thanks for reminding us all why we can't stand you.

Well at least there is some positive news to this loss -- Oliver Perez: 6.1 IP, 4 hits (3 of which came from David Freese), 1 ER, 2 unintentional walks, 4 strikeouts.

terrific outing...but with Ollie you have to temper your excitement until he puts in 3-4 solid outings together.

at least they showed some fight in the 9th. they haven't gotten over the hump yet but they do not roll over and die like last year. I think the day is coming where the Mets will learn how to come from behind and win a game. They're just about to turn the corner.

Santana just capped off an outstanding day: 7 innings, 4 hits, 0 runs, 1 BB, 9 K

Its too bad the Mets have given him absolutely NOTHING in terms of run support. 1 freakin' hit! Nothing against Garcia either, hes looked very sharp, but this RH-dominant lineup should have been able to hit him a little better, jeez.

Japanese baseball players are usually very reserved, but Igarashi shows a lot of emotion out there...it's a cultural thing, but I don't ever remember seeing one this animated.

It's a feast or famine lineup and today is definitely famine. Reyes is still not quite right, Bay still hasn't found his stroke, we desperately need Beltran to beef up the lineup and hopefully Ike Davis somewhere down the line.

Capitals/Canadiens started two hours later, went into overtime, and STILL finished before the Mets/Cardinals game. Going into the 18th inning now, still scoreless.
