Let me preface this post by stating that I am satisfied with where the Mets are at this point. They’ve been a lot of fun to watch and are certainly a team that is easy to root for.
Let’s be frank, they are over achieving and if anyone tells you they knew they would be five games over .500 and only a handful of games out of first at this point you would be well within your right to call them a big fat liar.
Now on to one of the few players on the roster I could do with out. Manny Acosta needs to go. His 11.86 ERA speaks for itself.
For some reason, Terry Collins has made repeated attempts to give him a chance to show us that he can be relied on in somewhat critical points in ballgames. Enough is enough TC. The guy has never looked comfortable on the mound this year for whatever reason. In fact, he looks downright scared at times. You can see it all over his face.
Maybe the Mets are reluctant to give someone else a shot until Pedro Beato is ready. Fine, I’m not ready to second guess Mr. Alderson at this point. Mainly because I have always believed that selecting members to fill your bullpen is a lot like playing Russian Roulette.
But I’m practically begging you TC, please don’t give Manny the ball in a one run ballgame anymore. I’m tired of getting Acostad.
