The Daunting Task Of Defending An NL Championship On A Shoestring

The 2016 Mets promise to look a lot different from the 2015 Mets, which is something that makes a lot of fans nervous, particularly as this was a team that made it to the World Series. The Mets currently have 18 players reaching free agency, including Bartolo Colon, Daniel Murphy, Yoenis Cespedes, Bobby Parnell, Tyler Clippard, Juan Uribe, Jerry Blevins, Eric O’Flaherty, Kelly...

Can Bobby Parnell’s rocky journey have a silver lining?

There has been little fanfare surrounding Bobby Parnell since the veteran returned from Tommy John surgery, his job Wally Pipped by Jeurys Familia. At 31-years-old, Parnell is now the Mets’ fourth-longest tenured player -he debuted less than two weeks after Jon Niese- and the second-longest consecutively tenured reliever by one team in the National League, behind only San Francisco’s...

Jon Niese, Bobby Parnell and the odd men out of the playoff roster

While these last games of the season are primarily for securing the National League East division crown and playoff berth, and secondarily for fighting for home field advantage, there is clearly a third purpose – settling on a post season roster. As the team stands right now, we have 38 active players and we can only carry 25 into the playoffs, so some tough decisions are going...

New York Mets: Parnell headed to DL

For all the talks about the New York Mets’ offensive improvements and stellar starting pitching, one area that hasn’t quite been up to par has been the bullpen. Outside of Tyler Clippard and Jeurys Familia generally the performances have left much to be desired, though Hansel Robles threw a fantastic three innings in the 14 inning game this weekend. Those three guys were the...

Bobby Parnell once again at odds to rebound

Mets reliever Bobby Parnell, the team’s second-longest tenured player, is undergoing the rockiest stretch of his career during a time the team needs him to be better. Parnell has pitched to a 5.59 ERA in 19 1/3 innings this season, though his 3.94 FIP indicates he has been a bit unlucky. Only 16 months removed from Tommy John surgery, Parnell is not the same pitcher he once was...

Gut Reaction: Pirates 8, Mets 1 (8/16/15)

I want to blame this loss on Terry Collins so badly. Here’s why. Bobby Parnell walks Pedro Florimon. Michael Morse reaches on an error, by Parnell. First and third, no outs. Double play and a run in isn’t terrible, so I can understand Collins giving Parnell one more batter. Parnell then gives up a run-scoring single to Gregory Polanco, before finally recording an out when Starling...

Bobby Parnell is not the same pitcher

Bobby Parnell is a bit of an easy target after failing to record an out in the tenth inning and giving up the go ahead run to the Pirates last night. That the game got to Parnell in extra innings because the team failed to cash in on scoring opportunities is a separate issue, but Parnell hasn’t exactly been a beacon of light since returning from a 14-month rehabilitation after...

Bobby Parnell Continues To Be Ineffective

Bobby Parnell just hasn’t had his best stuff lately, and last night it really cost the Mets who lost 3-2 to the Rockies in 10 innings.

The Mets’ four-game winning streak came to an end Friday night, as the Pirates came in to Citi Field and escaped with a 3-2 win in extra innings.

In perhaps the most disappointing game of the year, the Mets lost a 7-1 lead and fell to the Padres, 8-7, in a game where the rain played a big part. It looked like the Mets were going to escape with a 7-5 lead. Bobby Parnell and Hansel Robles gave back four runs in the seventh inning but Tyler Clippard restored order in the 8th. Jeurys Familia came on and then the rains came. Familia...

Mets Use Depth To Get Tyler Clippard

Though the Mets might need a bat most of all, their acquisition of Tyler Clippard makes good sense. By fielding-independent numbers, their bullpen has been middle-of-the-road so far this year, and the returns of Jenrry Mejia and Bobby Parnell might not be enough to push this bullpen into a strength as the end of the […]

Can the new Bobby Parnell still be effective?

There was a time a few years ago when Bobby Parnell was half-lovingly nicknamed Captain Fastball.  He could bring the heat – reaching over 100 mph on the gun – but had problems with control and being hittable.  As the now well-known story goes, Jason Isringhausen taught him the knuckle-curve and from that point on, Parnell took off. After Tommy John Surgery in 2014, he is now...
