Gut Reaction: Padres 8, Mets 7 (7/30/15)

In perhaps the most disappointing game of the year, the Mets lost a 7-1 lead and fell to the Padres, 8-7, in a game where the rain played a big part. It looked like the Mets were going to escape with a 7-5 lead. Bobby Parnell and Hansel Robles gave back four runs in the seventh inning but Tyler Clippard restored order in the 8th. Jeurys Familia came on and then the rains came. Familia...

Mets Use Depth To Get Tyler Clippard

Though the Mets might need a bat most of all, their acquisition of Tyler Clippard makes good sense. By fielding-independent numbers, their bullpen has been middle-of-the-road so far this year, and the returns of Jenrry Mejia and Bobby Parnell might not be enough to push this bullpen into a strength as the end of the […]

Parnell Is Thriving As A Middle Reliever

Since returning from Tommy John surgery, Bobby Parnell has been excellent. He’s allowed only one run and seven hits during ten innings. “It was way more difficult than I thought it would be,” Parnell told SNY.TV’s Robert Brender about his year-long recovery from surgery. “The physical side was pretty much laid out, it’s easy to comprehend. But, it’s a mental grind...

Bobby Parnell Keeps Shining In Setup Role

I’ve gotta hand it to Bobby Parnell, boy what a job he’s done since coming back from Tommy John surgery. Understanding he was no longer the power pitcher he once was, Parnell has transformed himself into a very crafty reliever for the Mets and has quickly reestablished himself as a very effective arm out of the pen. That knuckle-curve he picked up from Jason Isringhausen has...

Parnell Looked Rusty In His Return, Never Topped 91MPH

Bobby Parnell made his first major league relief appearance in nearly two seasons on Saturday night, and after the game manager Terry Collins said his former closer looked “rusty.” “I’m glad he got it out of the way.

Bobby Parnell Back With The Mets

The Mets announced that reliever Bobby Parnell will rejoin the Mets on Wednesday and then be activated from the DL within a few days. Parnell had a 30-day rehab clock in the minors that was set to expire, and because he has more than five years of service time in the majors,  he could have refused an assignment to the minors. He appeared in his final rehab game on Tuesday for...

What do the New York Mets do when Bobby Parnell returns?

Here’s an interesting situation: It’s Spring Training 2015 and closer Bobby Parnell has fully healed from Tommy John surgery. After pitching in just one major league game in the last season and a half Parnell is looking to reclaim the closer’s role that was rightfully his last season. But there’s a problem.

New York Mets: success will depend on the bullpen

While it is true that the New York Mets have made strides in recent years to build up their roster through prospects, trades and free agency. However, one area that has not been addressed is the bullpen. Typically the bullpen is populated by journeymen veterans on one-year contracts, like Jon Rauch and LaTroy Hawkins, or by unproven and ineffective young arms, like Josh Edgin. In...
