If he started the season hot, and the Mets were in contention, and then he did this in August and September, he'd be a choker, and someone who can't handle the pressure of NY.  It doesn't really matter when he slumps, he'll get ripped for it regardless.

The Mets are not bad because of Ike.  He's part of the problem, but not THE problem.  There is not one aspect of this team (outfield, infield, SP, RP) that is league average.  They're just a bad team.

And the worst part is that all of these guys "of the future" that they were counting on to develop suck.

Ike, Duda, Tejada, Baxter, Nieuenheis, Gee, all terrible.

Wright and Harvey are stars.  Murphy and Neise are solid MLers.  Valdespin has potential but is a head case. Wheeler and Mejia are hurt.

Not only is the team terrible now, but there's almost no hope. Ugh.

It looks like Wheeler is missing one start, and hopefully it's not a recurring thing.

The "hope" is in the pitching - Harvey and Wheeler.  Got a guy named Rafael Montero who's doing really well in the minors.  Noah Syndergaard is a young prospect who's only 19 I think.  The hitting prospects look iffy.  But pitching wins championships, right?

I'm not sure why you keep blaming Collins. There's little talent here. That's not the fault of the manager.

You realize the team still sucks with Wally Backman, right?

Baseball manager may be the most overrated job in sports, in terms of success of a team.  Players play.

So Ike sits? What good does that do? Are we 19-25 rather than 17-27? Meanwhile you hurt Ike's confidence and decrease the chance of him getting better.
