Right now to see the current team self destruct year after year is killing me. Everyone thought replacing Willie Randolph was the problem but here we are again with the team spiraling down in the middle of the season. The problem with this team is Omar Minyaya the general manager and the cohesiveness of the players he has assembled. He has brought all these big names in but these guys can't play as a team and there is no leader in the clubhouse.
Across town there is no denying the leadership role of Derek Jeter but these Mets just don't have that guy. Everyone thinks it should be David Wright but he has just not stepped up. No one seems accountable on this team nor does there seem to be a tight bond between all the players. Even though this years team is decimated with injuries is time to change direction with the team and general manager. The owner should let go of Omar at the end of this year and try to find a better guy who can really judge talent in the farm system. I also think its time to let Beltran and Delgado go. These guys are just not consistent and I think younger players are the way to go. This will also help David Wright be that leader. Personally I think he has lot of the same issues that Tony Romo has had in Dallas. When there are other players on the team vying for attention and the spotlight it is hard to lead a team and be respected. At the same time the leader needs to perform on the field and lead by example. His hitting has not be solid and there have been to many errors in the field. Maybe because he is trying to hard with all the injuries but they need to get some other young guys in there and start playing like a team. There doesn't seem to be that hunger to get back to the playoffs and win a World Series.
Hopefully changes can be made this year after they have another dismal season.
