CARLOS TORRES NEWS

There Is No Dana, Only Fools

I want to touch on Carlos Torres’ great outing on Monday, as he went five innings while giving up three hits and striking out six in an emergency start after pitching a third of an inning the day before. But I can’t do that without mentioning the reason for Torres’ emergency start, as Bartolo Colon left to be with his ill mother before she passed away. So as you think of Torres...

Buddy Carlyle and Dana Eveland succeed without throwing gas

The evolution of the Mets’ bullpen from disaster to team strength has been one of the most pleasant surprises of the 2014 season. One of the big reasons has been the clearing out of older guys who either lost zip on their fastballs (Farnsworth, Valverde) or who never had it in the first place (Lannan, Rice). Now the Mets can throw waves of guys who throw 94 or higher and if the...

Rowan Wick ties record but the low minors go 0-3

Did you know Rowan Wick is having a pretty fantastic start to the year?
