I was down Monday with server issues, which I hope have been resolved. Many thanks to Joe D. from Metsmerized for his help and patience.
Two items occurred that I haven’t had the opportunity to comment on: John Maine and Jenrry Mejia.
The one on Maine is especially disturbing because it shows and ugly side of Jerry Manuel. His comment about pitching Maine “on the off days,’’ was for a cheap laugh, which he got. But, how he threw Maine under the bus like that has to send a message to other players when dealing with their injuries.
Maybe Maine is done with the Mets, but he’s still here and working hard to get back. He deserves his manager’s respect.
If I’m a player and working hard to get back, I don’t like the manager taking a cheap shot at me for his benefit.
