Almost as predictable as the Mets falling short in the wins column these days is the projected fall-out that occurs after each loss.  Every beat writer or sports news outlet is trying to find the scapegoat.  I find that laughable, since I believe Jerry Manuel, Howard Johnson or Omar Minaya are symptoms of a larger […]

Let me start by saying that I’m not hanging yesterday’s loss on Oliver Perez. The game was lost and completely out of hand long before he took the hill in the eighth inning. In fact that’s why he came into the game… The only time we see Ollie now, is when a win becomes as […]
