Yeah let’s give Jake Reed the ball after not pitching for 4 weeks in a MUST WIN game… Makes sense… 🤦🏻♂️
Mets fans are filing out of the stadium after the Cardinals take a 7-4 lead off Jake Reed in the top of the 11th.
In the end, the #Mets got to that spot with Jake Reed in the 11th because they failed to hold a lead they had in the eighth inning, all in a must-win situation. Yes, they could’ve used Trevor Williams but it comes down to a bad decision to use Jeurys Familia in the 8th.
Seth Lugo pitched back-to-back nights on Saturday and Sunday. He did not pitch last night and I assume he is not available tonight. Hard to ask Jake Reed to come into a must-win game like this and expect positive results, just not fair to him
So whose decision was it to bring in Jake Reed fresh of a long stint on the IL into a crucial part of this game? Just asking for a friend. #Mets #LGM
Our season came down to Albert Almora and Jake Reed. The Luis Rojas experience.
He really put Jake Reed on the mound and pinch-hit Albert Almora Jr. in the biggest game of the season. #Mets
Well, that’s a tough loss. But at least the cardinals beat us with our best guys on the field. Jake Reed and Albert Almora are the guys you’re gonna need to beat if you’re gonna beat the mighty Mets
When the season is on the line and you have the opportunity to use Jake Reed & Albert Almora in the most critical spots of the game…you do it.
You mean pitching perennial AAA arm Jake Reed in a crucial 11th inning when he hasn’t pitched in a month and then having Albert Almora hit with the game on the line when he’s hitting .118 with 0 RBI weren’t smart decisions?
If only the one guy who’s in control could realize that
Jake Reed and Albert Almora. That’s who our manager decided should be up in the most important spots of the year. Fire. Luis. Rojas. #Mets
Jake Reed and Trevor Williams in the 11th inning of a must-win game??? Are you guys serious????
You know whats unfair @StevenACohen2
@metsgm ??? Its unfair to #Mets fans yearning for a winning product& a playoff run having to put up with Rojas, his awful in game decisionmaking& his pitiful excuses after he practically throws games away! Jake Reed, Almora? REALLY? #FireRojas https://t.co/RN3B4jQry0
In conclusion, Jake Reed and Albert Almora Jr pitched and hit in a must win game’s final inning
That’s on Rojas too. Used Jake Reed and Almora instead of Hand and Guillorme.
“Arm care” ah yes, you really showed that when you put Jake Reed into a no-margin-for-error, high leverage situation directly off his IL stint… from an arm injury https://t.co/2V6oeV4tIX
Fuck this team, and fuck Rojas and Alderson specifically.
You pitched Jake Reed in the 11th inning of a must-win game, Luis you asshole.
When your season is hanging by a thread, and you end up placing the game in the hands of Jake Reed and Albert Almora, things are not good. #LGM https://t.co/mPT1sGVCxQ
A big game came down to Jake Reed on the mound & Albert Almora at the plate … money doesn’t buy the depth it used to
Instant reactions to the #Mets loss:
1. I would have much rather seen Guillorme up there than Almora, even against the lefty.
2. It is managerial malpractice to allow yourself to have to rely on Jake Reed in the 11th inning of a pivotal game.
3. Stick a fork in 'em.
We really had Jake Reed who just came off the IL today and Albert Almora playing in the most crucial game of the season… no words

Brian I always appreciate your well reasoned takes - but after watching Albert Almora Jr. and Jake Reed take the two biggest moments at the apex of the season, I think it’s very fair to be specifically agitated at the manager who has been a lame duck for 1.5 months now.
Vaunted Sandy depth options: Almora and Jake Reed deciding a game in a pennant race. Rojas and Alderson should be run out of town on a rail.
We just had our season determined by Jake reed and Albert almora. That is an organizational disaster. @StevenACohen2
