Its time to bring up Rosario and put him at SS, and shift Cabrera to third, which should be less demanding on his body. And move Reyes to the bench.
Sandy was part of the process of implementing a 10-day DL, yet they consistently play short handed by not using the DL.
Got home from work a little late yesterday, flipped on the game and we were already down 5-0 in the first with Tehran going against us, no way that was going to end well.
I just don't know what to think anymore. Watching this team, this is a bad baseball team. We can't field, we don't hit consistently, we never take extra bases and put pressure on the defense, the bullpen is a mess, and the back end of the rotation sucks. We were 7-3 a couple of weeks ago and now, 8-11. This looks like a 90+ loss team. If we don't get great starting pitching and hit home runs, we can't win.
I know it is still early, and all they need is one good winning streak to turn it around, but we are already 6 1/2 games behind the Nats, and we are not even through April. And this team is showing no signs of life.
I am a fan of 4 pro sports teams - Jets, Mets, Knicks, and Rangers. In my lifetime they have collectively won 5 Championships. With the Mets being the most successful with 2, and the Ranger winning the most recent -- 23 years ago. What the Fuck did I do to deserve this?

What is Terry Collins?... He is not a leader. He is not a motivator. He is not a strategist. He is not a sabermatics guy.... What he is, is a LOSER. He has never won anything. And he is not suddenly going to become a winner now. He reminds me of an older guy I met when I was working for one of the big banks while in college who told me... "If you never stick your neck out and you hang around long enough, they'll have no choice but to promote you."
