The New York Mets somehow are playing even worse baseball each game they play. They have not won a single series in the month of June. They are well below .500 and Mets fans are obviously frustrated. Owner Steve Cohen held a press conference with the media and expressed his frustration and addressed future plans with the team and the organization. Below is my quick take on this from the Times Union:
Mets owner Steve Cohen is not going to fire Buck Showalter or any of his front office before the season is out, and I understand where he is coming from. Showalter was manager of the year last season and the Mets won 101 games. But if the Mets don't make the playoffs, Cohen needs to make changes it starts with firing of Showalter. In the meantime, I respect his decision to stay status quo.

MJ and I had our guy ESPN baseball analyst Tim Kurkjian on earlier this morning as we do every Friday right here on Big Board Sports. Timmy does think the Mets are in big trouble as they just look like a lost team with no real strengths. Below is Timmy talking about the Mets.
I really don't know if this team will make the playoffs as they are struggling badly. I want to see this team succeed and there really are no excuses left as they have way too much talent and have the biggest payroll in all of Major League Baseball and its not even close. We'll see if they can turn it around before the all star break but I'm not optimistic.
