The Mets are looking horrible these days, I don’t know how it could happen. My assumption that Isiah Thomas is secretly coaching the team could be correct, but until my theory is proven, Willie Randolph needs to do something drastic. Omar Minaya, the Mets GM, met with Randolph and got the dreaded “vote of confidence,” but they need to trade what few prospects they have left on more pitching. Reyes, Church, Wright, and Beltran have all been hitting, but the rest of the team isn’t showing up. They always have a good shot at winning ever 4th and 5th days with Johan Santana and John Maine pitching, but the rest of the rotation is really bad.
I would suggest cutting ties with Carlos Delgado and move Moises Alou to 1st base and keep Angel Pagan in leftfield. Pagan has been injured lately, but showed signs of being consistent before his injury. Who knows, maybe someone will trade a 5th starter for Delgado.
The Mets need a kick in the crotch right now, it will hurt at first, but afterwards, you won’t want it to happen again.
The Mets have one thing going for them at the moment, they are probably still better than the Yankees.
