JENRRY MEJIA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Familia Replacing Mejia As The Mets Closer?

Mike Vorkunov of NJ.com ponders if the Mets should just go with Jeurys Familia as the team’s closer next season. He argues that as as impressive as Jenrry Mejia was last season in his first stint as closer, Familia was far more consistent than him. “While Mejia’s saves could sometimes feel like he was walking a tight-rope (A 1.50 WHIP in save situations), Familia was more stable...

Closer Role Should Be Jenrry Mejia’s To Lose

Recently there’s been a lot of chatter about who the closer should be next season with some even suggesting trading Jenrry Mejia who was second in the NL in saves during the second half with 18, only one behind the Marlins’ Steve Cishek. I have no problem with Jenrry Mejia as the closer entering the season. Keep in mind he pitched through a sports hernia. Ultimately, the closer doesn´t...

Jenrry Mejia Should NOT Be Our Closer In 2015

In a great post earlier this week, Harris Decker posed the question as to whether Jenrry Mejia should be traded this offseason. The readers were split on this notion with 51% saying yes and 49% saying no. The reasons justifying this move, according to Decker, are health and pitching depth. These are both very valid reasons. However, I want to throw out a third, and perhaps most relevant...

Poll: Would You Trade Jenrry Mejia?

Jenrry Mejia is coming off his most successful major league season. After being bounced around between the bullpen and the rotation for several years, he finally settled in as the teams closer in 2014. He saved 28 games and struck out more than a batter per inning (9.4 K/9). There were certainly moments of weakness for the young pitcher but he showed that he has the raw talent to...

Mejia Gesture Not Classy

Count me among those not enamored with the post-game celebration of New York Mets closer Jenrry Mejia, who went over the top with his reel-him-in gesture after striking out Ian Desmond to end last night’s game. Watching Mejia was watching any NBA player thump his chest and mug for the camera’s after dunking on a defender. It was watching almost any receiver or cornerback in the...

New York Mets: Top three prospects to replace Jenrry Mejia

Jenrry Mejia might be on his way to the bullpen, but who could take his spot in the rotation? Jenrry Mejia has been a good starter for the New York Mets this season. Well, at least through four or five innings; after that he implodes.
