There is no way in Hell Terry Collins should be fired.
The Mets came out and said TC is safe but it’s worth reminding everyone that the Mets performed way OVER THEIR HEADS in the first half. Granted the second half was a complete and utter disaster that even the most cynical fans didn’t see coming, but you can’t hold the skipper responsible for this mess.
If this was a real team we would’ve gone out and added a bat to help an offense that survived on smoke and mirrors for way too long.
That Dodger / Sox trade is completely insane. Word is the Dodgers are planning to become the Yankees of the West Coast and with their new ownership there’s no reason to doubt that’s what’s happening. I don’t know how smart taking on Beckett and Crawford’s mega deals are but Adrian Gonzalez is a no-brainer and I guess if they have Yankee pockets they can withstand those contracts should they both come up snake eyes.
Then again there’s no reason to think Beckett won’t benefit from a move to the NL West and Crawford can definitely bounce back after recovering from surgery.
Either way it’s bad news for the Mets. I know we’ve got to worry about the East before the NL Pennant but a Yankee-esque Dodger franchise is not good news for the low budget Mets.
