I see where Omar Minaya gave Jerry Manuel a vote of confidence. Not that it matters. You know how those things work out.
Also, Fernando Nieve was designated for assignment after last night’s game. Yeah, that will do it.
Honestly, after doing the math I’m not sure anything will, even if the offense scores ten runs tonight.
Just do the math.
The Mets are 49-47, two games over .500 when they were once 11.
Assuming it takes 90 wins to qualify as a wild card, the Mets would have to go 41-25 (16 games over .500) the rest of the way.
Never mind how many days until the trade deadline, how many days until spring training?
