John Maine may have pitched himself out of a job

Apr 14, 2010, 10:39 AM EDT

Jerry Manuel, when asked about whether John Maine will remain in the Mets’ rotation after last night’s debacle said “I think those things we have to talk about.”

You know what would also be worth talking about?  Why Jenrry Mejia is pitching mop-up duty in meaningless game in what is already looking like a lost season — like he did last night — as opposed to starting games in Buffalo or Binghamton so he can be stretched out and prepared to take the place of tomato cans like John Maine once this team decides to build for the future rather than wallow in the denial of its present.

    That’s some tough talk early in the season from a Braves fan.

    You do realize it’s only been 7 games right? That still leaves 155 games left to make up the one game difference between your Braves. Seriously though, I can’t even stand the Mets, but your outright tunnel vision for them goes a bit overboard. As the above person posted, it’s not like Jurrgen’s 8.64ERA / 1.80WHIP after two starts is looking to hot either.

    John Maine seems to be doing as well for the Metropolitans this year as Kyle or Carl or Ian ever did for the Universe.

    Tomato cans? Have you imported this from boxing into baseball, or is it going around? I may need a newer edition of Paul Dickson’s Baseball Dictionary than the 1998 relic I have.

    Calling John Maine a tomato can is an insult to tomato cans everywhere.
    Captcha (I kid you not): to unravel
    How appropriate!
