Fifteen games into the season, I’m already tired of dealing with all the articles/blog posts about what the Mets need to fix. To illustrate my point, here’s just a sampling of what people have written just over the past few days regarding what’s wrong with the New York Mets:

3 Responses to “Links: The “I Know What’s Wrong With The Mets” Edition”

  1. Robert Tyson says:

    How about “they just aren’t good enough”? How about “they are realizing that Randolph wasn’t the issue”? Another season will end with them looking up at the Phillies, maybe even the Braves.

  2. Nick Kapur says:

    I don’t think the Mets are in big trouble yet, actually.

    There hitting has been good so far and the only real problem has been the starting rotation behind Johan Santana – all four of them have ERAs of at least 7.30.

    But I don’t think that John Maine, Mike Pelfrey and Oliver Perez are really that bad, so they just need to keep running them out there. They’ve had some bad luck with home runs so far.

    But it’s clear Livan Hernandez really has no business being on a major league team anymore.

  3. Paul Moro says:

    Nick, I think they’ll be fine too (by which I mean they’ll at least be a couple games in or out of a playoff spot). I just thought it was kind of funny/ridiculous how many aspects of the organization are being criticized so soon.
