HELLO AGAIN ! 9-30-2016

It's been sometime since I put up a blog post.  I said in the beginning ,that it was an experiment, that I'm not a writer and did not know how often I would be posting.  Well, there have been gaps between posts, but I have decided to continue and work on improving the blog for next year.  I hope you , that have enjoyed the blog, will stick by me and spread the word.

The season is rapidly coming to a close and the Mets need two more wins to gain the first playoff spot. I'm sure the Phillies will have something to say about that, but really the Mets are on a mission and should be able to take 2 of 3 and sew this thing up.

Hard to believe that about 5/6 weeks ago this team looked dead in the water.  No offense, injuries, just did not seem to be their year.  And then, Terry blew up in a press conference, Cespedes returned, Reyes and Cabrera returned, Lugo and Gsellman surprised, and Rivera was a revelation.  Now, with three games left, Grandy is hot, Bruce is showing signs of finding a stroke, Duda looks to be warming up and Cespedes is heating his bat for a run.  Going to be an exciting weekend and postseason.

What to do with Jay Bruce?  That seems to be the million dollar question. Right now, he is a detriment to this team.  They need to put out on the field,the best nine that they can to win games and he is not amongst them.  He  has been awful since he was traded here, and is showing no signs of "coming around".  They have to continue to win games to stay in the wild card hunt and Jay Bruce in the lineup does not help.

The final straw may have come on Tuesday night as Terry Collins, pinch hit Eric Campbell for Bruce in the 8th inning.  The Mets were staging a rally and the Braves went with a lefty, and the Terry pulled Bruce for "Soup", who delivered with a single driving in a run. 

"I always think I'm the best choice ... but he's the manager and I respect his decision," Bruce said after the game. "I don't deserve any explanation from the manager.

You're right, you don't deserve an explanation from the manager,  it should be clear, you are not hitting , you are not playing!

The Mets have an option on his contract for next season.  Please DO NOT exercise the option,give him his buyout and cut him loose, he is not worth the money you would have to pay him and, money better suited elsewhere.
