I really hope that a good guy like...

Another One Bites The Dust: Tim Byrdak

Tim Byrdak’s dominance, Torres’ BB rate, Wright’s records

If you ask most National League lefty batters which southpaw they hate to face in the late innings, undoubtedly most would say Aroldis Chapman of the Reds, who has limited LHB to a .367 OPS while recording an 8.67 K/BB ratio. But the Mets have quite a weapon of their own to neutralize big lefty batters late in the game in Tim Byrdak. Last year Byrdak limited lefties to a .604...

Can the Mets compete with Tim Byrdak’s workload?

In his last 10 games Tim Byrdak has faced 11 batters. He has done an outstanding job, retiring 10 of the 11 batters and the only one to reach base drew a walk.

This year he is on a similar pace, facing...
