Omar Minaya was standing in the dugout a couple of hours before game time, sounding just a bit exasperated as he answered questions about what Bags Michael Kors the Mets should be trying to accomplish heading toward the final month of the season."Guys, we're still in the hunt," the GM said. "We're seven games out of the wild card and we're still in August. You want to win games."Minaya couldn't know that such hopeful thinking would sound a little more laughable by night's end, as the Mets lost, 5-4, to the Marlins, making Florida the sixth team ahead of them in that, ahem, wild-card race.But then, what do you expect a man to say who has seen his own ballclub blow a seven-game lead in Michael Kors Handbags the final 17 games of a season?More to the point, what do you expect Minaya to say when he is paddling upstream in the same canoe with Jerry Manuel, each probably needing a huge September to save his job?Such a notion has nothing to do with Minaya answering questions Wednesday about a report speculating that he needs a big finish to save his job, either. All season the word filtering out of the Mets' organization is that the GM's job status is very much tied to that of the manager, even if Minaya has two more years left on his contract.As I wrote last week, that didn't change because of Fred Wilpon's flippant response recently to a question about Minaya's job status, when he answered by asking if the sun would continue to come up.If anything, that was more an indication of how much the elder Wilpon has distanced himself from such decision-making than a meaningful vote of confidence. It had little to do with the decision Jeff Wilpon will make at season's end.For Manuel, it was always going to be about putting together a strong season that at least included a stirring pennant race, and so, barring a miracle finish, there is no doubt about his future.With Minaya, it's a little different. The promise shown by some of the Mets' young players this season surely has helped his cause, quieting concerns about the state of the farm system. But in the end Minaya seems likely to pay for the exorbitant contracts given to Oliver Perez and Luis Castillo that have been such albatrosses - as well as the looming $17.5 million vesting option season in 2012 for Francisco Rodriguez that could make it impossible to trade a player whose contract the Mets are trying to void.Minaya needed Michael Kors Fashion this team to overcome those mistakes with performance this season. Instead these Mets have been maddeningly unpredictable, pitching better than expected thanks to finds such as R.A. Dickey and Hisanori Takahashi, but failing at the plate up and down the lineup in astonishing fashion.Why that offensive malaise would change dramatically in September is hard to imagine. And then there's the math alone that is so daunting: figuring the odds are good that one team among the Phillies, Giants, or Cardinals is going to win more than 90 games, it's likely the Mets would now need to go something like 30-6 down the stretch to win the wild card.No wonder Citi Field featured so many empty seats Wednesday night, disillusioned fans offering their take on the state of the fading season.Yet Minaya preaches hope when, in fact, the Mets need to take stock of their future. They are heading for an offseason that practically demands big changes, and the priority now Michael Kors Tote Bags should be evaluating young players and formulating a reform plan.Meanwhile, Manuel continues to manage shorthanded with what amounts to a 24-man roster, as Perez takes up the 25th spot because Mets ownership refuses to bite the bullet on his contract.And Jenrry Mejia, healthy and dominating at Double-A Binghamton now, is finally getting the starts in the minors that he should have been getting the first half of the season when he was being wasted in a non-vital role in the Michael Kors Fulton Handbag Mets' bullpen.Yes, the Mets need better decision-making more than they need wins these days, unless you believe they really have a miracle September run in them. The question, as always, is who gets to make those decisions.You can't blame Michael Kors Hand Bags Omar Minaya for hoping his ballclub still gives him that chance. But for an organization in desperate need of direction, the quicker that false hope dies, the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
