JOSH EDGIN RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Mets lost to the Padres when their pitcher fell off the mound

Is this the most “LOLMETS” play ever? Tie game, two outs, bottom of the ninth, winning run on third…and Josh Edgin trips and falls off the mound when Seth Smith hits a tapper to the first base side of the diamond. Losing is never a good thing, but losing like this is just…well, it’s embarrassing.

Assuming free will, would any other manager utilize Josh Edgin this way?

Let’s say you’re a veteran baseball man, well-respected in the industry. You’ve taken three years off from the game and have only followed it sporadically. You tune in every now and then to the ESPN or Fox Games of the Week but you catch most of the playoffs and World Series in your time away from the game. Out of the blue, a team calls you one day, looking for you to take...

Josh Edgin and the overdue death of LOOGY culture

If asked to identify the strength of the team coming into the season, most people would have said the starting rotation. But here in early July, the strength of the squad for nearly the last month has been the bullpen. The relievers got off to a poor start but the Mets shuffled through some of the dead weight and since June 9, the bullpen has been fantastic. What’s so special...

Josh Edgin cruises, bad ideas and Daniel Murphy, remembering Tony Gwynn

For just the fourth time in 16 outings this year for the Mets, Josh Edgin pitched a full inning last night.  All it took for that to happen was for the bullpen to have to contribute 15.2 innings over the past three games.  It’s worth noting that Edgin retired all three batters he faced.  In fact in his four outings where he’s gone a full inning (or more) this year, Edgin...

What’s Happened To Josh Edgin?

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? As if his his 10.80 ERA and 1.97 WHIP in 10 appearances wasn’t bad enough, I took a quick glance at his splits and it really showed me how bad things really have gotten for Edgin since last season. Versus LH Batters – 368 Versus...

Are Mets Pushing It With Josh Edgin?

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets have a rule in the minors that prohibits pitchers from being used three straight days. Yet now, in the absence of Tim Byrdak, rookie left-hander Josh Edgin has been used in six games in a seven-day span in the major league bullpen. Are the Mets using Edgin too much, putting him at risk of injury, like the excessive work that...

Terry Collins proud as Josh Edgin earns first career win

The New York Mets have thrown rookie Josh Edgin right into the fire and so far fans have to be very pleased with the results.  The 25-year-old lefty hadn’t pitched above A-ball last season but started 2012 out in Double-A Binghamton before quickly advancing to Triple-A Buffalo and eventually earning his call up to the majors on July 13.  Edgin showed dominating stuff in his big...

Will Josh Edgin be a lefty reliever, rather than a LOOGY?

If you asked most people what they disliked most about modern bullpen usage, the most common answer would be managing the game with the idea of maximizing saves for one pitcher. There is no doubt that is a sub-optimal way to do things. But to me there is something even more revolting and that is the idea that it is okay to carry pitchers who regularly have outings where they face...
