The New York Mets are a fourth place, however, here’s why skipper Luis Rojas deserves time to prove his worth in the big apple.
Rojas wasn’t given much to work with outside of Michael Conforto, Jacob DeGrom, Jeff McNeil, Dominic Smith, and none other than sophomore Pete Alonso, who we all expected slight regression from.
Not to mention, we are still smack in the middle of a global pandemic and shortened season. Things aren’t “back to normal” and life in the MLB isn’t easy even when things aren’t affected by Coronavirus.
Third, no rookie manager should be fired in his first year. I don’t care what the circumstances are, Rome wasn’t built in a day. With new Ownership pending the meeting in November, which will likely go through, the Mets will likely see a bunch of faces come and go. He may have more to work with next year, and then, if the job isn’t done right, it’s probably best to find the next man up to fulfill his role.
All I’m saying is, give the man a chance. The problem is not the manager, although the managers haven’t been extraordinarily great either, we all know the root of the Mets issues will be gone shortly.
Better things are on the horizon for this team. Rojas is not to blame.
