Jerry Manuel did his best Daniel Murphy imitation last night byÂ breaking wrong and falling down as it pertained with how he managed lastÂ nights Mets loss. The question that all Mets fans seem to be asking this morning is “why was Livan Hernandez pulled in the 6th inning”? It can’t be pitch count as the bill of goods we have been sold on L Hern is he is a work horse innings eater soÂ why didn’t Manuel let the old plow horse continue?
L Hern is experienced enough to get out of trouble and if he can’t do it then get rid of him. The only reason Hernandez is here is to give the bullpen a break if he can’t go at least 6 or 7 innings then he’s useless.Â
I’m starting to think collars are getting a bit tight in Flushing and they better loosen up fast as the head to Philly this weekend.
