Mets: Luis Rojas makes trio of fireable offenses against Marlins

  Mets: Luis Rojas makes trio of fireable offenses against Marlins New York Mets manager Luis Rojas is finding creative ways to get fired and blow the team's playoff chances at the same time. Rojas is likely the odd man out for a Mets team that has woefully underperformed in 2021 after a hot start. New owner Steve Cohen had enormous expectations for this gr oup, especially after adding Francisco Lindor via trade (and signing him to a massive contract extension), as well as a number of free agent pieces. The team that Cohen and Mets fans envisioned hasn't materialized, and it's easy to point to Rojas as the scapegoat.

Against the Marlins on Wednesday night, Rojas arguably had three fireable offenses in the same game.

The Mets went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position while the Cardinals capitalized on another rally in the ninth inning to blow the game open. Nolan Arenado, Yadier Molina, Edmundo Sosa and Harrison Bader each chipped in RBI singles — the first three off Yennsy Diaz and the last off Trevor Williams — to put the game out of reach. In a battle of 40-plus-year-old starting pitchers, Cardinals right-hander Adam Wainwright got the upper hand by limiting the Mets to four hits over six shutout innings.

New York Mets fans have seen enough of manager Luis Rojas, whose blunder in the 11th inning against the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night cost the team a win.

The New York Mets had the chance to climb up the NL Wild Card standings on Tuesday night, as they took on the St. Louis Cardinals, who held the second spot via a tie with the San Diego Padres. After watching their 3-2 lead disappear via a two-run Tyler O'Neill homer in the eighth inning, second baseman Javy Baez sent the game into extra innings with a solo home run in the bottom of the ninth inning.

After failing to knock in a run in the bottom of the tenth, manager Luis Rojas called upon Jake Reed to try and prevent the Cardinals from scoring. Reed failed to do so, as he surrendered three runs on singles by Edmundo Sosa and Andrew Knizer to give the Cardinals a 7-4 lead.

Mets: 3 times Luis Rojas should've been fired already

  Mets: 3 times Luis Rojas should've been fired already The New York Mets have had plenty of reasons to fire manager Luis Rojas this season after a silly scandal and an embarrassing collapse. The Mets are on a winning streak, but all is not well in New York. They've gone from first to third in the NL East and sit five games back.

Rojas on Monday received a two-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for "excessive arguing" of a call that led to an embarrassing play in the bottom of the first inning of Sunday’s win against the Pirates, MLB said in a release.

Luis Rojas ’ days managing the Mets seem to be running out. The Mets ’ August to forget is almost over, but not without another gut-wrenching loss Wednesday in Queens.

Mets fans were understandably heated about Rojas' decision to go with Reed instead of Trevor Williams, and called for his job on Twitter.

The Mets offense did show life in the bottom of the 11th inning, but they could only muster two runs, as they went on to lose the game 7-6.

Reed was activated hours before the game after he was placed on the injured list back on Aug. 20 due to right forearm inflammation. Prior to that, Reed had just pitched in just two games for the Mets, as he struck out five batters and allowed two hits in 4.0 innings of work. That was before he was sent to the injured list.

Why the Mets have plenty of blame to go around for their rapid August collapse

  Why the Mets have plenty of blame to go around for their rapid August collapse New York has lost 11 games in standings this month"I like what the Dodgers are doing," Cohen said during his introductory press conference in November. "That's one team that easily seems to make the mark in the type of places that I want to do the same.

Mets already feeling the Luis Rojas difference. This is only one small example in a camp filled with tight baserunning drills, bunt defenses, pitchers holding runners, live batting practice, secondary leads and much more of the little things. The wheels are always turning for Rojas , who prepares much like an NFL coach, taking his work home and then delivering on the promise.

And while that play was the only error charged to the Mets on Saturday, there were a few other plays that could have been made but weren’t. In the second inning, Conforto had a chance to nab Starlin Castro at the plate on a single by pitcher Joe Ross, but his throw was a two-hopper that allowed the Nats’ second run to score. “I don’t think we’re in a defensive slump,” Rojas said. “Yesterday we played a pretty good game defensively. I think overall today we were on our toes to make the plays as well.

Many Mets fans were wondering why Rojas would not go with another option, like starting Williams in the top of the 11th. The NL Wild Card race is relatively crowded with the likes of the Cincinnati Reds and Philadelphia Phillies chasing the Padres and Cardinals for the last NL Wild Card spot, and every game remaining on the schedule is must-win. Rojas can ill-afford to make any more mistakes if the Mets were to clinch a postseason.

After his latest blunder on Tuesday night, it appears that some Mets fans have given up hope in Rojas leading the team to success.

Georgia's JT Daniels 'likely' to miss UAB game with oblique injury? .
Daniels is questionable for Saturday's matchup because he's dealing with an oblique injury. "They're not sure if he's going to go," Griffin said about Georgia coaches. "But they've given him time off this week to heal. He feels like it's progressed well." However, Seth Emerson of The Athletic reported Daniels is "likely" to sit this weekend so that he can heal and prepare for the conference portion of the schedule. Emerson added that Daniels' setback is considered mild. Interestingly, ESPN named redshirt freshman Carson Beck as the favorite to start Saturday if Daniels can't go.
