Clippard Deal Gives Depth To Mets’ Bullpen

Perhaps the Mets see cracks with Jeurys Familia, or they see flaws with Carlos Torres and Alex Torres, but I like the acquisition of Tyler Clippard from Oakland. In whatever role they use him, he adds depth to a strained bullpen that is becoming exposed. Note that Familia has blown his two save opportunities since the All-Star break. The Mets sent minor league pitcher Casey Meisner...

Is the Mets bullpen a cause for concern now?

The Mets have been known to abuse the lefty relievers and have them pitch very often, but not a lot when they do. The seemed to have slightly solved the problem this season by bringing in three lefty relievers into the bullpen allowing each to be stretched out for more than one batter and still have someone to use in an emergency situation. Jerry Blevins was lights out against...
