Mets Bullpen Is Being Used At An Alarming Rate

One of the ongoing jokes during yesterday’s rain out was that despite the rain out, Terry Collins had Jerry Blevins and Fernando Salas warming up in the bullpen in case the game started on time. As with most jokes, this one did have a twinge of truth to it. So far this season, the Mets bullpen has been going on an unsustainable rate. Mike Marshall holds the single season record...

Mets bullpen gets much-needed reset, ready for triple crown chase

The Mets were rained out Tuesday night and the initial reaction from nearly everywhere was how fortunate this was because it gave the walking wounded hitters another day to recover. That’s absolutely true but to me the biggest benefit lies elsewhere. In my mind the prime advantage is for the relievers, who now have had back-to-back days of rest following Monday’s scheduled...

Mets batters’ Brutus to pitchers’ Caesar

Finding a prognosticator, analyst, fan or soothsayer who didn’t have the New York Mets in the postseason dance was probably more difficult to find than a colleague who picked them to return to the World Series. Years of rebuilding, two consecutive playoff appearances and a roster full of both talented youth and veterans fueled the dreams. But 19 games into the season, those dreams...

New York Mets: Expect them to turn it around after subpar start

April is easily the most misleading and inaccurate representation of the outcome of what is supposed to be a six-month baseball season.  This is not even including a month’s worth of Spring Training games and up to three weeks of postseason games.
