Open Letter to Omar Minaya,
Everyone knows the METS suck right now. Yes, I know it's still May but they are playing pathetic baseball. I mean, winning one game from the Nationals is simply unacceptable. I don't know about you Omar, but when I fuck up at work I get reprimanded. The question here is when will Willie be reprimanded? When will Heilman be reprimanded.. you can't keep putting a shitty product on the field and expect your customers to be happy about it. I mean, I'll like to think that the Wilpons are not pleased right now..I bet Fred wants to break and throw things at this point. He has to know that the fact that it's still early and everyone else on the national league east sucks does not give this team the right to brush off the loses like they did the end of last year. I know it's making me and other Met fans I know insane. Do we think Willie has done a bad job overall? Not really. But what is clear that his magic is gone.. every move he makes turns to cow dung. I don't think you want cow dung at Citi Field, do you? It stinks! Trust me, I'm from up state NY.
The solution to the problem? Well.. I don't know what the availability of any of the following managers is but here it goes:
Solution #1 Bobby Valentine
Solution #2 Gary Carter
Solution #3 Buck Showalter
Look, Omar, I'll take any of these guys in a split second. They have fire in them. They know baseball. Willie and Joe Girardi were given their chance in NY... I think is Carter's turn.
The first thing that needs to happen though is the dismissal of Willie-Delgado and Heilman. The season is over for the NY METS, Omar. We will have the pitching.. look at Pelfrey today he was awesome... Pelfrey, Maine, Santana.. this is a nice pitching core. The hitting is very good too... but they are trying too hard and are sucking as a result. Willie just doesn't have the right touch to turn them around. Why didn't he come out and argue with plate umpire after Alou was thrown out? Does he really have his player's back? He might... but it doesn't look like it from where I sit.
Anyway, Omar. I hope you make some more great moves in the future.. you've done a great job bringing in the talent. But you manager hasn't produced. Not your fault.
See you in 2009.
