Mets timely hitting coupled with Santana's gutsy pitching has allowed the more timid Mets coaches, management and ownership some cover.
Even so the problem has begun to surface as the Mets may be adapting the same timid approach at the plate, on the bases and on the field as well.
It's coming apart at the seams .. but then it was never expected to be otherwise.
Alderson began his rebuilding program with the trade of Beltran who is presently leading the national league in home runs.
Pagan is doing very well in San Francisco and Alderson just tries to stay out of sight and out of mind.
That is what a hatchet man does.
Reyes helped a bit getting off to a slow start and the Mets players helped playing above their heads.
I give no credit to Mets coaches and management and ownership.
They are ruled by bean counters.
They will make money from the fans despite the law suits and trades.
The Yankees still remain the class act in New York.
As a Met fan since 1962 - I am disgusted.
Shades of Tom Seaver. Is Wright next?
