Vic Black No Longer A Lock For Bullpen Spot

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York wonders, “Is Vic Black giving away what has been viewed as a secure bullpen spot?” It’s certainly a question worth asking. Black, who was considered a pillar in the pen after pitching impressively upon joining the Mets, has failed to carry that success into spring training. Thus far in 8 innings this spring, the 6’4 Texan has pitched to a 6.75...

Vic Black is the key to the Mets bullpen

The Mets bullpen has always been one of the question marks of the team. And this year is no different. The team comes into March with a closer coming off of injury and a ton of young talent competing for big league jobs.

What Is Vic Black's Role In The Mets Bullpen?

Last night, during the Stache Radio broadcast (the podcast of which can be found here), I posed a question via Twitter to Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal regarding Vic Black.

Is Vic Black the Mets’ primary setup man?

Vic Black is an intriguing character. When the Mets received him as the Player to be Named Later from the Marlon Byrd/John Buck trade, he immediately stepped into the New York bullpen where he put up a 3.46 ERA in 13 IP, struck out 12 and walked only 4. It was a nice sign from a guy who had an average fastball velocity of 95.5, and who can ratchet that up when needed. He appears...

How Did Vic Black Get His Unusual Delivery?

Vic Black The majority of Pirates fans haven’t had many chances to see Vic Black pitch. They’ve probably seen the numbers, highlighted by a 1.65 ERA and an 85:29 K/BB ratio in 60 innings in Altoona last year. They might have heard of his fastball, which usually sits in the 96-98 MPH range, and has touched triple digits. He’s been on top prospect lists, is named as one of the...
