Carlos Torres Regrets Crucial Walks

With Jenry Mejia suspended and Jeurys Familia moved from setup man to the closer’s role, Carlos Torres has taken over as the Mets primary setup man. Torres for the most part, has been reliable despite being used heavily. Tuesday was an exception. Torres came in the bottom of the 8th inning with the score tied at 3 and immediately put himself in trouble by walking two of the first...

Playing It Too Safe

The key moment in Tuesday night’s 4-3 loss to the Marlins was Carlos Torres struggling to find himself in the eighth after a couple of walks, and Terry Collins acting like Rocky Balboa with the towel in the third sequel and letting Apollo Creed get killed by Ivan Drago. Unfortunately, the “good” options in the bullpen had already gone (Alex Torres, Buddy Carlyle), with the...

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...

Six Ace

Jacob deGrom would like you to know that you can take your fears about a sophomore slump and put them in your underwear drawer and save them for somebody else you know. Because he’s unbelievable and he subscribes not to your sophomore slump theory … although he seems a bit superstitious about the hair. And that’s okay. deGrom went seven strong innings scattering six hits with...

On the eve of the season opener, Mets reliever, Buddy Carlyle has an out-clause on his contract that he can exercise, assuming he is not on the Opening Day roster. The Mets are deciding whether to carry an extra bullpen pitcher in substitution of a bench player, which would reduce the bench to four players.

Overcrowded Bullpen Has Caused Quite a Conundrum

It’s hard to believe that just two days ago, even Terry Collins was unsure who would get the regular season call to face opposing lefty sluggers in the late innings. With Josh Edgin out for the season with a torn UCL and no proven options in camp, the Mets bullpen, an expected strength to begin the season, was in dire straits. Enter new acquisitions Alex Torres and Jerry Blevins...

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...
