PLAYERS: Bobby Parnell
TEAMS: New York Mets
Monday was a day to forget for the Mets, as they lost a doubleheader to the Giants by a combined 13-3 score. After losing two doubleheaders last year in April, most members of the Mets should be willing to forego twinbills before May for the foreseeable future. Perhaps the one player who might feel otherwise is Bobby Parnell, who appeared in both games yesterday and had 4 Ks in 2 IP and did not allow a run. In his previous outing on April 18th, Parnell gave up two runs. But Terry Collins did not feel the need to get him in the game right away, as he had to wait four days to get back on the horse. In the first game, Parnell came on in the eighth inning, put two runners on base, but got a groundout to end the inning. In the second game he struck out the side in the ninth inning. After seven appearances, Parnell sits with a 3.38 ERA. He’s allowed just 2 BB and has 13 Ks in 8 IP. That’s a 14.63 K/9 and a 2.25 BB/9 which translates to a 1.44 xFIP. There were rumors that Parnell...

Bay Placed On DL, Lutz Recalled - Ike To Be Platooned?

It was announced earlier this afternoon that Jason Bay suffered a non-displaced fracture of his rib. Lutz, who was recalled from Buffalo can be used as a 3B or 1B. Chances of Lutz seeing the Hot Corner are slim, so makes one wonder if this means that Fearless Ike, after a dreadful start, might be put into a platoon situation with Lutz. Earlier this spring I wrote about the similarities of
