Scott Schoenweiss Should Be Washing Cars

Well, here goes a good thing shot to smithereens.

Willie, hand the ball to Scott Schoenweiss...Know what? You have a better shot of hitting KENO with all 20 numbers -- two games in a row -- than getting a stellar performance from him.

His pitching is reminiscent of John Franco. And, in my view, that is not a good thing. It amazes me that a hustler/do-er like Gotay gets let go and Scott, who has a propensity for blowing ball games stays.

The box score is sickening: http://sports-ak.espn.go.com/mlb/boxscore?gameId=280408121 Now he is tagged with a loss after Ollie Perez did a wonderful job of scoreless ball.

Willie, last year and the year before, you went to Mota a lot for odd reasons. Please don't make Scott the go-to guy. There is no way he is a reliever (Fireman)...The closest he should get to water is at a car wash.

Scottie stinks, so does Heilman and Sosa...

But you know what the real problem is? The Mets offense. We seem to continue to rely on our pitching to win games. We might have, arguably, the best starting pitching staff in the NL East, but Atlanta and Philly know how to score -- we apparently don't.

We need to turn it around.
