Terry Collins said the inability of Mets starting pitchers to go deep
into games has overwhelmed his bullpen. So the Mets will promote a
reliever before Sunday’s series finale against the Pittsburgh Pirates, the manager added.
“It’s a pretty big problem because our bullpen is shot,” Collins said
about the length of starting pitchers’ performances. “So it’s created...
MLB News: The New York Mets recalled Jeurys Familia from Tripla-A Las Vegas Wednesday, replacing Greg Burke on the major league roster. Familia will work from the bullpen for the Mets. A starter, turned reliever, Familia is highly respected throughout the organization and was ranked amongst their top prospects heading into 2013. Burke has struggled mightily this season.
After the Mets' bullpen logged 10 1/3 innings in Tuesday's doubleheader, Jeurys Familia is being sent from Triple-A Las Vegas to Denver to be with the Mets.
Submariner Greg Burke officially has been demoted by the Mets to clear a roster spot for the addition of Jeurys Familia.
Burke, 30, had a 7.06 ERA in 7 1/3 innings spanning seven appearances. He allowed 10 hits and...
The Mets’ bullpen allowed 14 hits, 10 runs, eight earned over 9.0 innings during yesterday’s doubleheader and appear to be showing some leaks. Entering the Colorado series, the bullpen had posted a 2.08 ERA in their previous six games.
Overall, the Mets relievers are 2-1 with a 4.21 ERA (20 earned runs/43.2 innings) and they rank seventh in the NL in ERA.
The backend of the...
Back in November, the Mets announced they had signed a right-handed relief pitcher Greg Burke to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training. When I heard of the signing, it reminded me of the scene at the beginning of the movie Major League where the Cleveland fans are all giving their take on roster moves the team made, and the guy in the diner asks “Mitchell Freidman...
The Mets signed Greg Burke on 11/7/12. He is a 30 year old righthander with only one season of MLB experience to his credit – 48 games for the 2009 San Diego Padres.
But wait…He’s a sidearmer! He pitched at AA/AAA for the Baltimore Orioles last year and saved 17 games. He posted a 1.53 ERA. He demonstrated excellent command with a 2.09 BB/9.
Who does that sound...
Looking for a topic to write about, I went over to the official Mets site to look at how the guys playing Winter Ball did. Usually you can find someone hitting the cover off the ball but of the 16 hitters in various leagues, the highest OPS was the .834 posted by Juan Carlos Gamboa in the Mexican-Pacific League. The pitching was not much better, with the exception of Greg Burke...
Northwestern State athletic director Greg Burke says Bradley Dale Peveto won't return as the Demons' head football coach next season.
Peveto, a former co-defensive coordinator at LSU, came to Northwestern in 2009 and has overseen four losing seasons.
The Demons went 0-11 in his first season, then posted 5-6 records in both 2010 and 2011 before going 4-7 this season.
