Luis Rojas might just be the most unpopular man in Queens these days. And what transpired on Wednesday night isn’t going to help the matter.
In the seventh inning of the team’s game against the first place Giants, Rojas made the decision to remove starting pitcher Taijuan Walker from the game with less than 80 pitches thrown.
When the relief pitch proceeded to chalk up the team’s lead, the “fire Rojas” chants echoed through the stadium as the Walker threw a tantrum in the dugout.
It is getting ugly at Citi Field, as fans are now chanting "Fire Rojas."

More Mets fans swarmed social media to share in with Taijuan Walker and the disgust for manager Luis Rojas.
Defense lets down Tai. Rojas horrible managing. Loup has his first bad appearance of basically the season.
And yet all of it can still be erased if the offense just BEHAVES LIKE AN AVERAGE PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL TEAM

If Luis Rojas is back in 2022 this will confirm Steve Cohen is a Wilpon

Luis Rojas’s Mets are fully imploding after being in comfortable position in the NL East at the Trade Deadline. They now sit 6.5 games back of the Braves for the first place spot.
The Mets’ collapse was so sudden and stark that everyone in Queens is now lashing out against the entire organization. And Rojas will be at the top of that list.
There’s no telling if Steve Cohen and the Mets’ brass will actually pull the plug on Luis Rojas if the Mets continue their slide and fail to make the playoffs. But if they do keep the skipper around, they might just have a full-blown riot on their hands in New York.
