New York Mets: Evaluating Jenrry Mejia as a closer

For the past two weeks, the New York Mets’ season has sunk further as they have been defeated in 6 out of their last 8 games since they lost game 3 of the Subway Series to the neighboring New York Yankees, though last night’s win against the Los Angeles Dodgers helped cushion the blow.

Jenrry Mejia could help make the Mets bullpen dominant

In Monday night’s game against the Yankees, Jenrry Mejia came in and got four big outs. It was originally thought that since Mejia had pitched only three days prior, that he would only be expected to come in and get Alfonso Soriano out, which he did in splendid fashion on only three pitches. However, Mejia came back to pitch the bottom of the 8th after Lucas Duda drove in Eric...
