Horrible loss for the Mets. So many mistakes that they probably did not deserve to win. You make 5 errors in 1 game, chances are you are going to lose. Obviously the biggest mistake was Church missing third base. This changed the whole ball game as the Mets were deprived from bringing in K-Rod in the bottom of the inning.
I am really angry with Manuel's comments after the game. He seemed to magnify Church's mistake like he killed someone. Manuel needs to grow up as he acted in a selfish and childish way after the game. It is a manager's job to support his players unless they are not going all out and showing hustle. The fact is that regardless of whether Manuel likes Church or not, he needs to support him. Church is here and he needs to feel like he is a part of the team. He should not be outcasted by a manager who is clearly over-rated.

What a way to escape to the west coast and see the Mets in Hollywood star in "A Comedy 0f Errors." 0nce again the Mets play their classic role of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory by committing 5, yes, FlVE errors.
Not to mention the base running error by Ryan Church who failed to touch 3rd base and score the potential game winning run. Then to commit 2 errors in the bottom of the 12th inning including Jeremy Reed (playing his 4th game ever at first) throwing away the winning run.
A Hollywood ending as the home team rides off into the sunset with the win.
I'd rather this game end up on the cutting room floor.
