A week ago tonight Ryan Church sustained a concussion. The Mets have only gotten a handful of at-bats from his since, and consequently lost the ability to retroactive him a week.
I know they were hoping he’d only be a few days, but by definition “hope’’ means uncertainty. When the DL was a topic discussed before the team left Atlanta, there is no mistaking they blew this decision.
Carlos Delgado is benched tonight. That’s a good decision. However, the guy they should bench for a game or two is Jose Reyes.
The argument not to doing so is because of a fear “of losing him.’’ Huh? Benching him might be the only thing that gets Reyes’ attention. If they are afraid of “losing’’ him, then maybe he’s not worth keeping.
Drastic times take drastic measures.
I also have a new poll: Who is more responsible, Omar Minaya or Willie Randolph?
