Mets Take Two of Three From Yankees, Keep Delaying the Inevitable

Last night with two on and two outs in the ninth, A-Rod up as the potential lead run against K-Rod, I found myself less worried about the Mets winning the game and more interested in what would happen tomorrow if they lose.  If K-Rod blew last night's save then I think today may have been Jerry's last day as Mets manager, but instead K-Rod struck out A-Rod and gave the Mets a nice win to end a pretty good weekend.

So, am I disappointed by the Mets winning last night?  Absolutely not...

BUT, part of me wonders if a loss would have brought about the end of Jerry, because if that had been the case I wouldn't have been too mad about it.

It just seems, to me, like EVERYONE is waiting for Jerry to fail to get him out of that position.  And since it looks like no move will be made until the team has reached the point of no return, I'd rather they hit that point sooner rather than later.  Because at the end of the day, I think the Mets have holes, but they also have enough talent to compete.  And the opportunity to turn things around, to me, is one that you need to hop on as soon as possible.  Also, everyone knows once the team loses another couple games in a row (which will probably happen over the next 120 or so games) the Jerry debate will rage on....

So, while I will ALWAYS want this team to win...I want the organization to get this Jerry situation past them because I just don't think they can win with Jerry at the helm.  So while I'm happy the team pulled out a series win against the dangerous Yankees...part of me thinks the organization is just continuing to delay the inevitable...and I wish they would just make the change.  You can still fire managers if they're winning...Can't you?

  1. I know I am in the minority here, but I don't want Jerry to get fired. Not because I think he is a good manager, because he's not. I just don't think Bob Melvin is the answer, I think the Mets should ride this year out see what happens and if they don't make the playoffs, if they don't content, retool the front office and coaches from top to bottom.
