After yesterdays loss Mets manager Jerry Manuel had some hard words for his starting staff of course besides Johan Santana. According to Adam Rubins blog Jerry went on to say that there be some changes in the rotation if things do not correct themselves by the next cycle of starts.
I can not see any of the starters quaking here. The Mets minor league pitchers are not burning the fields down in triple a. Jon Niese had 3 horrible starts and Freddy Garcia had 1 ok start since getting a chance to pitch. Also who knows what to expect from Tim Redding who is poised to come off the DL after this home stand.
Look the pitching does stink but its not like the Mets have alot of guys ready to step in. Nice try Jerry to shake up the team but what you going to do release Ollie? Demote Pelf after he was hurt? Nope. maybe the words will just rattle some cages and get these guys going. Jerry does love to talk!
