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.
