there is no way of knowing what a new manger will do to the lineup. Much less if they are going to dismantle or not.

yep, it was inevtitable.. if youre that many games out with this good a roster, someones gotta go. :-°

the times running out for them since they werent able to make a run even after they got Carlos.

i was never convinced... Ensberg still cant hit good righties. :-b
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

Sure, the Mets promote Baylor to hitting coach and now there's a chance he's headed to Houston. Just as the Mets' bats started to heat up. I've seen worse in my 31 years as a Mets fan. :-t

When Jimy was fired in Boston, that team which was hovering in contention immediately tanked and stank the rest of the year.

Of course, Jimy was replaced by Joe Kerrigan, who may have been the most incompetent manager in the history of baseball. He's certainly one of the most overrated pitching coaches.

Lamb should stick at platooning, he's a bench player, a utility infielder. Ensberg last year, had numbers that compare favorable to Lamb's whole career.
