As I watched the end of the Mets 2-1 loss to the Dodgers on Wednesday night, several thoughts were racing through my mind. How much more of this will Mets fans take? How much more of this will Mets management take? More importantly, how much more can manager Jerry Manuel take?

Monday night’s 3-2 loss was a comedy of mistakes as the Mets committed five errors. Ryan Church forgot to touch the base while rounding third and was called out on an appeal by the Dodgers. The Mets would’ve taken a 3-2 lead had he touched the base. The Dodgers scored the winning run in the bottom of the 11th thanks to an errant throw by Mets first baseman Jeremy Reed.

Daniel Murphy misplayed an easy line drive in Tuesday’s 5-3 loss. His miscue allowed the Dodgers to score. Murphy followed that up by getting picked off at first base.

Need to read more? I hope not, because I’m tired of writing about the knucklehead mistakes.

Willie Randolph took the brunt of the criticism in 2007 and 2008. New Flash! It’s the players and the man who brought in the players. Randolph had his faults, as does Manuel. But what can you do when your star players (Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran) aren’t sliding or hustling? What can you do when your starting left fielder (Daniel Murphy) is a terrible fielder?

What can you do when your No.4 starter (Oliver Perez) is awful?

What can you do? Not much.

After dropping three in a row to the Dodgers, the Mets now must to go Boston and battle the Red Sox for three games. Good luck Jerry. You’ll need it.
