MLB  > General MLB  > Mets Need To Address Problem Areas Now
April 30, 2010, 06:55 PM
While I applaud the Mets streak, long term they have problem areas.

First & foremost is catcher. Omar Santos was a capable catcher & yet he got sent down & the pair they are using now are barely hitting their own weight. This needs to be addressed right away

Secondly, the starters need to go longer. At the rate Manuel is using his bullpen, they will be burned out by the All Star break. Santana is being paid big bucks but he can not seem to go 7 innings. Perez is a joke yet Manuel continues to make excuses for him

It is a good assumption that they cannot count on Beltran. When Murphy comes back, throw him in there. The Mets need to get some hitters in the lineup
