Familia Decent But Bisons Still Lose in Extra Innings

Bisons Recover To Win After Blowing Save

Even when the Bisons have won during their recent slump, they have managed to almost give games away. Tuesday was a perfect example as Buffalo blew a two-run lead in the 9th inning before coming back to rally for a 5-4 win in 11 innings over Indianapolis. Buffalo twice led on the night but closer Fernando Cabrera couldn’t hold onto the lead in the 9th, allowing one run after replacing...

Prospect Pulse: Power Arms For The Mets Pen

There is no doubt that one of the weakest aspects of the 2012 Mets so far has been the bullpen. The Mets bullpen ERA is second to last in the National League at 5.04. Their bullpen’s WHIP is at 1.51, good for 14th place in the league. The Met bullpen this year is also fourth in the National League in giving up hits, and also fourth in giving up HR’s.
