As I expected, the Mets have demoted Josh Edgin to Double-A Binghamton to clear a roster spot for Shaun Marcum.
I even speculated that he should go to Binghamton which is where he ends up.
We’ll see him again, I’m sure…

I got an interesting email from Kevin (K Maxx) this morning who asked, “if Terry Collins is so concerned about Josh Edging being overworked, why does he keep overworking him?”
I did a quick check and was shocked to see that Edgin made 75 appearances last season between the Mets and the minors. That would have placed him tenth in the NL.
The 75 appearances was the largest workload of his pro career and more than a 50% increase from his previous high of 49 appearances.
So far this season, Edgin has appeared in 10 of the first 20 games and is on pace for 81 appearances.
K Maxx may have a point.

What happened to the Josh Edgin who came up and immediately became one of the more reliable and dominant relievers out of our bullpen last year...
