The Mets Disaster Is Not Terry Collins Fault

Subscribe to WIBX 950 on

I grabbed fellow New York Mets fan Jon Meyer for a discussion about what’s been an injury plagued, miserable six-week start to the season.

When we sat down to discuss, the Mets were in the midst of a six-game losing streak, which has grown to seven (and counting, maybe).

Not that I’m the hugest fan of manager Terry Collins, Jon and I agree, this mess isn’t on him. When you lose your best hitter (Yoenis Cespedes), ace pitcher (Noah Syndergaard) and now closer (Jeurys Familia) – all for several months or possibly the season – would any manager or team be able to cope?

And, while we certainly understand that every team deals with its fair share of injuries in a 162 game season, consider starters Lucas Duda, Travis d’Arnaud, Neil Walk, Asdrubal Cabrera, and roll players Wilmer Flores and Juan Lagaers have all missed several games due to smaller injuries. Plus, has Jose Reyes every been less productive?

And, what could have been arguably the best pitching staff in the National League coming into the season just isn’t performing up to expectations. We do agree, as well, that their collective poor performance has led to taxing the bullpen. I’m sure that will come back to haunt them later this summer.
