Former Cardinals closer bashes Harold Reynolds & Tom Verducci

The broadcast team of Bob Costas, Harold Reynolds and Tom Verducci received a ton of negative feedback during their coverage of the Cardinals and Dodgers on Saturday night. Costas not so much as the other two gentlemen, but the night as a whole was filled with cringe-worthy commentary. Former Cardinals closer Jason Isringhausen may have summed up things the best: Just wish Costas...

Matt Harvey and previous late-season pitching promotions for the Mets

Full disclosure: The idea for this article was blatantly stolen from my co-writer on Mets360.com, Brian Joura. While he focused on the offensive side, let’s now take a look at the pitching side. It’s not easy to pull up exclusively late season promotions, so the criteria I used was pitchers age 23 or younger, making at least 5 starts and no more than 15 starts (also a minimum...

Opinion: Syndergaard Should Be The One We Ultimately Deal

Here are three names that Mets fans know all too well. Bill Pulsipher, Jason Isringhausen and Paul Wilson. Better known as Generation K, these three pitchers were supposed to usher in a new era of Mets baseball in the mid ’90s. The three pitchers would turn out to be busts of the highest caliber and outside of Isringhausen who developed into a solid closer, none would have a lengthy...

Generation K all over again… hopefully with better results

The mid 90s saw a phenomenon in the making: 3 young pitchers in the same system, all with huge up sides. They were dubbed Generation K with the popular Generation X connotation of the youth at that time. The answers to Mets fans prayers and an answer to the Dwight Gooden days of the 80s: they were Bill Pulsipher, Jason Isringhausen, and Paul Wilson. Unfortunately, things didn’t...

The Cool Kids go for Three Tommy Johns

Last week we found out Cory Luebke was set to have his second Tommy John surgery, ending his 2014 season. We grieved, we cursed, and now we’ve moved on (shhh . . . just repeat it . . . it’ll make things easier). I went over the best and worst case scenarios for Luebke in last week’s post. The success rate for a pitcher coming back after a second TJ surgery is 60 percent, and...
