New York Mets Hoping For Miracles in Queens

Alexander GeorgalasContributor IJuly 28, 2010

After a disappointing 2009, the New York Mets started the season with a positive outlook. Unfortunately, the same positive outlook is turning into an overall disaster.

Surprisingly, the pitching has been more than what they could have asked for, but the hitting remains a huge problem. Jerry Manuel appears to have lost his team and in the eyes of many, seems to be on his way out.

However, Met ownership must have other ideas since they feel Manuel is doing a "great job".

The problem with the Mets is the same issue that has been around since the 2006 championship series against the Cardinals. The fire that sparked the Mets to get to the postseason that year appears to have been lost. It doesn't matter how they start or finish, as the ending will always be disappointing.

The team is simply not that good right now. In a few years, Met fans will feel the same disappointment poor old Cub fans have felt for decades. It is also evident that Met ownership is not planning on making any other moves. The feeling is they can win with what they have.

In reality, it does not appear that the New York Mets are winning anything anytime soon. The story remains the same in New York. There is only one winning team and it's not in Queens. Time is running out and the Mets can only hope for miracles.
