Mets Need To Lock Up Torres

I don’t know what the Mets are waiting for, but they need to lock up Carlos Torres, who might be the Mets’ most reliable reliever. TORRES: Valuable asset. (AP) To understand why, you must first look past his 8-6 record and 3.06 ERA. The numbers are rather pedestrian, but 14 decisions out of 162 games indicate a sizeable percentage. Torres appeared in 73 games last season and...

MMO Mailbag: Where’s The Love For Carlos Torres?

Adam83 asks… Every time I read about how great our bullpen is, it’s amazing how often Carlos Torres and the job he did last year is ignored and never mentioned.  Isn’t he just as important to us as Familia and Mejia?  How many long relievers are better? MMO replies… Carlos Torres is certainly appreciated within the organization, but I agree he’s not making national...

Carlos Torres: The unsung hero of the Mets bullpen

This season the development of Jeurys Familia and Jenrry Mejia in the back end of the Mets bullpen got a lot of attention, but flying more under the radar was the season that Carlos Torres put together in middle relief. Torres solidified himself as one of Terry Collins’ favorite arms with his stellar performance, striking out nearly a batter an inning over 97.0 innings pitched...

Too Many Altuves

All it takes is one Altuve to be too many for the New York Mets tonight. Of course, one Altuve trumps one Carlos Torres, especially when Carlos Torres has to warm up unexpectedly after Jon Niese left the game with an elevated heartbeat … something he has has problems with before. All it took was one Altuve to drive in the first run off Torres after Niese left, and it led to a three...

The Mets won their second straight against Atlanta on Saturday night, doubling up the Braves 4-2 at Turner Field.

That would be all for the Mets lefty. Niese was charged with two runs on seven...

Carlos Torres rebounds, top prospects prosper, checking our moral compass

If the Mets relievers developed a gallows humor in regards to their usage patterns this year, you could hardly blame them. It’s easy to imagine Jeurys Familia whispering to Carlos Torres that the beatings would continue until morale improved. We went from every day Scott Rice to every day Torres and in late July-early August, the team was reaping what it sowed. In a span of...

3 Up, 3 Down: The Kids Are Alright

The Mets finished up their three game set against the Marlins with a 2-1 series victory last night. New York has an interesting parallel with their division rivals from Miami, in that both organizations have dwelled at the bottom of the NL East cellar for many years now, but through those years they also stockpiled young, athletic players with the potential to be stars. Let’s see...

Jacob deGrom Lowers ERA, Increases Chance Of Rookie Of The Year

Last night Jacob deGrom turned in one of the more gritty performances of the season. deGrom clearly did not have his best stuff right from the start but he found a way to battle through it. Home plate umpire Mike Winters didn’t do deGrom any favors, squeezing the young pitcher on a number of key pitches early in the game. Still, deGrom found a way. He gave up one run, six hits...
