The Mets’ Now or Never Tour got off to a pathetic start.
No surprise there.
These Mets don’t deserve to be on the same field as the Braves.
At this rate, there will be lots of changes in player personnel for these much-less-than-mediocre Mets.
Team management stood their ground and kept core players in New York this offseason, but if this season continues to decline in a big way, those jobs will not be safe. Back up the truck.
After the terrible offseason Brodie Van Wagenen had, he will get another crack at making deals. Good luck with that, as Brodie’s Bullpen was abysmal once again.
The Mets began a pivotal 11-game road trip Monday night with an incredibly ugly 12-3 loss to the Braves at SunTrust Park. And it wasn’t even that close.
The Braves look to be in a much higher class than the Mets. The athletic, aggressive Braves played error-free baseball while the Mets struggled even on some routine plays.
As for that bad, bad bullpen, Mickey Callaway finally lost patience with their performance.
“We just stunk. Again. We weren’t good,” he said. “We have got to recalibrate what we are doing and do the job better, plain and simple.’’
Pretty much all the Mets stunk.
