Acosta-lypse Now Playing For Japan

According to his agent Gene Mato, former Mets reliever Manny Acosta has signed a one-year, $1.65 million contract with the Yomiuri Giants in Japan. The deal includes $500K in performance bonuses.

New York Mets non-tender Mike Pelfrey, Andres Torres, and Manny Acosta

According to multiple reports, the New York Mets have officially non-tendered centerfielder Andres Torres, reliever Manny Acosta, and right-handed starter Mike Pelfrey. Though the Mets can still sign Pelfrey at a lower rate — arbitration-eligible players who are tendered contracts must receive at least 80 % of their previous year’s salaries, Mike made $5.6M in 2012 — the former...

Manny Acosta keeps rolling, Bay keeps stinking, Harvey ends strong

The less said about Thursday’s loss to the Phillies the better but one of the few bright spots was another scoreless outing by Manny Acosta. Since being recalled on July 24th, Acosta has a 1.83 ERA with 18 Ks in 19.2 IP. Walks are always going to be an issue with Acosta but he has kept them in check in this span, having allowed just seven. Combined with a .200 BABIP, it’s led...

Manny Acosta-Pedro Beato switch helps settle Mets’ pen

On July 23rd, Pedro Beato gave up 4 ER in 0.1 IP as the Mets dropped their second straight extra-inning game. From the 10th inning on in those games, the Mets were outscored, 11-0, and the bullpen looked like it has pretty much all season – in shambles. The following day the Mets demoted Beato and called up Manny Acosta, which had the feeling of rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic...

Should Jon Rauch get more rope than Manny Acosta?

Remember when Jon Rauch opened the season with 11 scoreless appearances? It seems like a lifetime ago, doesn’t it? The only reason I remember is that I spent all offseason saying the Mets made a mistake giving $3.5 million to Rauch and then he started off great. Earlier, I gave props to Rauch for his good start but included this caveat: “I still expect regression to kick...

Too ‘Manny’ Chances Already for Acosta

Last night, New York Mets reliever Manny Acosta tossed two innings of relief, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four: Following a David Wright two-run shot in the bottom of the sixth — which cut the Mets deficit to 6-3– Acosta surrendered three runs on four hits in the next half inning. Photo by Michael G. Baron Manny allowed the first two batter...

Why Is Manny Acosta Still Here?

An introduction is not necessary as the title does all of the justice. Statistically, he has faltered in every role this season, from set-up man to mop-up guy. Acosta has almost as many walks as innings pitched, allowed more runs then innings pitched and has allowed a run in 10 of his 18 games pitched. So, logical readers of MMO – why is the man still up north occupying a roster...

Morning Grind: Why Are Acosta and Batista Still On The Roster?

Why are Manny Acosta and Miguel Batista still New York Mets? With ERA’s of 9.69 and 6.92 respectively in a combined 26 innings of “work” –if you can call their awful outings work–, they do not deserve to be at the major league level in any way, shape or form. In an offseason centered around creating a strong and formidable bullpen, Sandy Alderson and the Mets are letting...

Acosta’d! Astros 4, Mets 3

On a night where Brad Mills’ used 7 pitchers to face 7 batters in 1 inning, I don’t think anyone expected the pitchers’ duel he had through the 6th inning.  R.A. Dickey was once again brilliant, taking a no-hitter into said 6th inning.  That momentum would be taken away with one big swing, however, as Matt Downs hit a 2-run HR to put the Mets in a 3-0 hole with 3 innings...
