Readers of my Met’s Minors column may have grown accustomed to me ignoring players who might be struggling in a given week.  For this reason you have heard a lot about: Matt Harvey, Wilmer Flores, Zack Wheeler, Travis Taijeron and Aderlin Rodriguez, but less about others.  Well I tend to go by the doctrine of, “If I don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” So it was with Jeurys Familia, Reese Havens, Michael Fulmer and Brandon Nimmo.  The four players all didn’t get their seasons started on the right foot.  A wise and venerable man once told me, “There is a reason they play a whole season.”  That has proven to be sage advice time and time again.  In this case… perhaps it means that I might have been counting a few players out too quickly. Jeurys Familia: On the year, Jeurys Familia has: a 7 and 5 record and a 4.33 ERA.  In 95.2 innings he’s struck out a respectable 87 but also walked a regrettable 56.  These stats should not have anyone too excited.
