New York Mets Making Changes

Fred Wilpon’s New York Mets are making changes. But it may be too little too late for the team, returning home this weekend after a dismal 1-7 8-game road trip.

“We’ve had an absolutely horrible trip, ” manager Terry Collins told ESPN before departing Miller Park on Thursday. “We haven’t scored. Three one-run losses. So let’s just go home where we’ve played well and hopefully it’ll continue.”

First, the team called up the pitcher who could be the next Tom Seaver, Steven Matz, from their AAA Las Vegas team this week and he is expected to get the start on Sunday. But Mets fans have seen this before. They remember when the team over-hyped Jason Isgringhausen and Bill Pulsipher back in the 90s.

The Mets have also moved back to a six-man rotation. The team has gone back and forth from five- and six-pitcher rotations over the past few weeks.

The Mets hope to reactivate third baseman Daniel Murphy from the DL any day now. With their lack of scoring and terrible defense on the road, the Mets need every bat they can get.

Also, the team promises that it will make a move before the upcoming trade deadline and that it is willing to spend some money. “I’m ready to overpay, ” said the team’s GM Sandy Alderson. “There has to be something to overpay for.”
