Now that the most important road trip of 2010 is over, and really who’s shocked by the results, it’s time for finger pointing and scapegoating to begin.
First up is Carlos Beltran who looked anything like the premier Gold Glove centerfielder and offensive force we’ve seen. Beltran has been blamed for this mid summer collapse and the inability of the New York State Senate to pass a balanced budget but lost in all the hyperbole is the fact the organization bungled the medical handleing of his leg injury to where he had to go outside the organization to get the treatment he needed. This left a bitter Beltran and Omar Minaya once again having to use flash cards to explain the situation to Jeffey Skill Sets. The biggest mistake Beltran made was rushing his rehab to tru to help this mess of a baseball team he should have been selfish and thought of himself and stay out until September. When the organization fucks you over, and the fans and MSM can’t stand you, then it’s time to think of you and your future because no matter what Carlos Beltran does, he can’t win around here. So the Mets front office needs to do anything it can to move Beltran to another team this offseason. It’s a move that benefits both sides.
The Klapper writes a column today saying what we all have been saying for about a year now that Jerry Manuel needs to be fired. If you need more proof of this, he and Jeff Francoeur had a sit down yesterday where Manuel retracted his stance that Frenchy and F-Mart would form a platoon in right field. The “Me First” Francoeur (funny how Francoeur is portrayed as this rah-rah team guy but in reality is a selfish prick and Beltran who is portrayed as the less than team guy, shows more of a team first attitude by coming back from serious injury to early to help the team) cmae out of the meeting laughing and back slapping with Manuel with the news that I won’t be a strict platoon, that Frenchy will play bulk of the time in RF. If Omar Minaya were a real GM after hearing this, he’d cut Francoeur on the spot.
Hey Mets are back home tomorrow night against the Rockies, I’m guessing there are seats available?
