Does Santana Need to be Shut Down? 

Yikes.

Holy crap what’s wrong with Santana? 

He was OBLITERATED yesterday allowing 8 ER in 1.1 IP.

I don’t know what else to say but if he needs to be shut down for the season let’s shut him down.

    By all accounts there was nothing physically wrong with him, he just sucked. I say keep him in the rotation. But if the Mets do shut him down, which would mean they are officially closing the books on 2012, they should shut Bay down as well, then release him during the winter months as a goodwill gesture to the fans.

    instead of shutting down some individual players, the kindest thing would be to shut down all Met Fans until next season because being a Mets fan is akin to hittting yourself over the head with a hammer, because it feels so good when you stop.

    I’d rather watch the Little Leage World Series. At least the team you root for there has a chance!

    Don’t let the Mets ruin the rest of your summer!

    Yes, Santana go rocked yesterday, but I think he should get at least 1 more chance before the Mets consider shutting him down.

    I wish I could keep the faith that eventually the Mets will turn around (obviously not this season) and will play good ball on a regular basis. I, along with most fans, thought they finally turned the corner this year with the surprising start and staying in contention till the All Star Break. I didn’t think they could keep up the pace all season, but I thought them finishing at or slightly above .500 was a realistic expectation.

    Sadly, the Wilpons did nothing to improve the team. I can’t place any blame on Collins or Alderson. They can only do so much, and when the boss gives you limited control, you’re S.O.L.

    Sadly, next year the Wilpons will get a pass next year because they’ll sell all sorts of season ticket packages, which people will buy because they want to go to the ASG. The ticket sales next year will be falsely represented. It would be great if the Met fans could do something to get the Wilpons attention, either improve the team or sell it.

    I’m going into the rest of the season with the hopes they can finish with at least 70 wins, and not letting the losses get to me as much. Here’s to the 2012 season, she started with such hope and died a slow, painful death before our eyes.

    Met_Maven, were there players the Mets could’ve acquired without giving up top prospects that would’ve saved the season? I’m not a big fan of the Wilpons but I don’t see what would’ve made sense this year. Now if they ignore quality free agents going into next season without having a real OF, then I say blast away at them.

    Jake, I get what you’re saying, and while there were no “big” players the Mets could have gotten without giving up a top prospect or two, I think we could have gotten some bullpen help for Hairston and a lower tier prospect. I don’t think Hairston is in the teams long term plans and any addition to this bullpen would have been an improvement. But the past is the past, no sense complaining about it. I just hope they make the necessary improvements.
