"I can honestly say [that], professionally, this is the most embarrassed I've ever been, the most frustrated I've ever been," Piazza said. "I don't know what to say. Embarrassed, frustrated, dumbfounded."
I think it is safe to say the Mets are in a free fall. Their losing streak is now a season-worst eight games, also matching the longest winless streak of Howe's two-year regime. They've lost 13 of their last 14 overall. They need seven more wins to top last year's win total. They need to go a paltry 7 - 21 from here on out to accomplish that feat.
Duquette said the Mets have interest in Cuban star Kendry Morales, though it didn't sound as if they'll be major players for him. Superscouts Al Goldis and Bill Livesey attended Morales' workout this week
You have interest, but you do not think you'll be major players for him? I hope that is just GM Speak for I really cannot or do not really want to comment on a player that is not on my team sort of deal. The Mets could use a 21 (or maybe 24) year old 1B/OF that would not cost them any prospects. With the money Wilpon made off of us fans for such a shitty product the last three years, he needs to lay out the cash whenever he can upgrade the organization. I want to see Morales gift wrapped with Humber soon.
I've got control," Howe said. "We're not winning. That's the bottom line. We've got to figure out what we can do, if anything, to resolve that."
Umm, you may be the only person in this universe who thinks you have control of this team.
