Gilmartin, Montero, Verrett Could Fill Sixth Starter Role

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets could turn to one of Sean Gilmartin or Logan Verrett as a sixth starter during the first half of the season. I would also add Rafael Montero into that equation as well. That is based on comments made by general manager Sandy Alderson on Wednesday, who said the organization plans to strategically use a sixth starter to keep their...

Sean Gilmartin, Addison Reed and managing for the platoon advantage

Let’s turn the clock back to the beginning of the 2015 season and let me propose a situation to you. Your bullpen is rested after a day off and everyone is available. You’re on the road and you have a lead heading to the bottom of the seventh and you need to go to your bullpen. Do you put in a Rule 5 pick with a 2.17 ERA and 1.095 WHIP or the guy with 104 lifetime Saves and...

Mets bullpen options for the *cough* playoffs *cough*

As the Mets head into the final month of play, looking down at the Nationals by 6.5 games, the team has to start thinking strategically about which players will make the playoff roster. Obviously any Mets fan that lived through 2007-2008 will be wary of setting anything in stone, but at this point the only familiarity between 2007 and 2015 is David Wright. In any event, the most...

And Here Comes Sean Gilmartin

I know, I know, only two weeks ago I said, “No way this guy makes the 25, he looks like roadkill out there.” But what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a lefty reliever who throws with no fear. So out of this pack of underwhelming relievers, Sandy’s words not mine, here comes Sean Gilmartin who has squarely placed himself in front of the pack after a few very solid appearances...

Who Is LHP Sean Gilmartin?

Anticipating the Rule 5 Draft can be like looking ahead to a trip to the dentist for an enthusiast of minor league baseball.  Inevitably, players you have watched perform their trade, and, perhaps, even gotten to know a little when attending games at venues like Binghamton’s NYSEG Stadium are on the block, possibly lost to another franchise.  To the minor league aficionado,...
