Poll: Mets Firing Jerry Manuel?

The Mets are headed home from a 2-9 road trip that dropped them to one game over .500. They’re now 7.5 games behind the Braves and fell behind the Phillies to third place in the division. It’s not an insurmountable lead, but the offense has disappeared and the roster is pretty messy.

It wouldn’t surprise me at all if the Mets fired Jerry Manuel tomorrow. I don’t hope he gets fired. He seems like a good, well-meaning guy. So I never like to see someone like that get fired.

Let’s face it though, it would be easy to fire Manuel on tomorrow’s off day. You can’t fire all the players so the manager will be the one to take the fall when things aren’t going well. We all know that. And the Mets have almost no commitment to Manuel left. He doesn’t have a contract for next year. The team would only have to pay him for two more months. There’s no financial constraint against letting him go right now.

What do you think? Will the Mets let him go now?
