While appearing during his regular weekly spot with Mike Francesa on WFAN, Jerry Manuel sounded more like a general manager at times than he did a manager.

The Mets were shutout last night by Tommy Hanson and the Atlanta Braves 6-0 in front of a sparse crowd in Turner Field. Pat Misch made his fourth start for the Mets and wasn’t sharp at all, allowing 4 runs on 8 hits and 1 walk in five innings pitched. He’s looking less and less like […]
