MMO Game Recap: Marlins 13, Mets 2

The New York Mets lost to the Miami Marlins by a score of 13-2 on Monday at Tradition Field. I know, I know, you would have preferred I used words like “mauled” or “demolished” in that opening line… It all looked good for Zack Wheeler after a perfect first inning, but things completely unraveled in the second and he ended up allowing six earned runs in 1 2/3 innings....

Mets360 2015 projections: Jenrry Mejia

Not many people start the year in the rotation and end the season as the team’s closer but that’s the path that Jenrry Mejia followed in 2014. While he had a solid season as a reliever, many felt this was a self-fulfilling prophecy for the Mets. For many years, the club talked about how Mejia was more suited for the pen and at the first sign of trouble, he was removed from...

New York Mets Avoid Arbitration With Jenrry Mejia

The New York Mets have avoided arbitration with RHP Jenrry Mejia, agreeing to a one year $2.595 million deal for the 2015 season, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Mejia started off the 2014 season in the rotation, but moved to the bullpen in May, where he took over as closer for the absent Bobby Parnell. The 25-year-old ended the season with a 2.72 ERA and 1.42 WHIP, while...

Mets, Mejia Avoid Arbitration

As expected, the Mets avoided arbitration with reliever Jenrry Mejia, who agreed to a one-year, $2.595 million contract this evening. Mejia, whose role has bounced from the rotation and bullpen during his Mets’ tenure, assumed the closer job after Bobby Parnell was injured. Manager Terry Collins, despite not knowing Parnell’s physical status, already anointed him as the closer...

MLB teams now have until Friday to submit their bids for each player, although keep in mind both sides can still negotiate before their arbitration hearings and agree to a deal.

Mets Hope Is On The Rise, So Why All The Glum Faces?

I think we can all agree that the Mets are heading in the right direction. The farm system has begun to feed the team with young, promising, top level talent such as we haven’t seen in over a decade. Jacob deGrom, Matt Harvey, Juan Lagares, Jenrry Mejia, and Travis d’Arnaud are just a few of the names driving this new Mets resurgence. But despite all the positive vibes and a...

In Closing: Thoughts On Bobby Parnell and Jenrry Mejia

Among the things I find puzzling with manager Terry Collins is his propensity for making announcements without all the facts. Most recently, he said Bobby Parnell will be next season’s closer, this despite not pitching last season and nobody knowing for sure his physical status. With Parnell shelved, Jenrry Mejia took over as closer and saved 28 games. Incidentally, Parnell...

Mejia Not Upset About Collins Calling Parnell Team’s Closer

Jenrry Mejia is well aware of what Terry Collins said in San Diego when he proclaimed Bobby Parnell the Mets closer as soon as he is ready to return sometime around May. Collins matter of factly said Parnell was the Mets incumbent closer. Mejia said he was not upset about Collins’ comments despite his belief that he did everything that has been asked of him, and took the high...

Alderson Reluctant To Trade Mejia Or Mess With The Bullpen

For the same reasons I pointed out a couple of days ago below, general manager Sandy Alderson told Mike Puma of the New York Post the Mets would be reluctant to trade a reliever this offseason. “The bullpen hasn’t been a strength over the last three or four years until last season and even last year not for a full season, so we would be reluctant to trade the power arms,”...

Signing David Robertson? Trading Jenry Mejia?

Recently there’s been a lot of chatter about who the Mets closer should be next season with some even suggesting trading Jenrry Mejia who was second in the NL in saves during the second half with 18, only one behind the Marlins’ Steve Cishek. Joe Sheehan raised the possibility of the Mets signing former Yankees closer David Robertson on Monday. The logic being that we forfeited...

Mets360 2014 Projection Review: Jenrry Mejia

It was a tale of two seasons for Jenrry Mejia. He began 2014 as a starter, and turned in a couple of electric performances in that role, but by early May his ERA had ballooned up over 5 and he was moved to the bullpen. Mejia pitched well in a few late-inning appearances, and notched his first save of the season against the Nats on May 17. He went on to log 28 saves and record a...

Familia Replacing Mejia As The Mets Closer?

Mike Vorkunov of ponders if the Mets should just go with Jeurys Familia as the team’s closer next season. He argues that as as impressive as Jenrry Mejia was last season in his first stint as closer, Familia was far more consistent than him. “While Mejia’s saves could sometimes feel like he was walking a tight-rope (A 1.50 WHIP in save situations), Familia was more...

Jenrry Mejia Should NOT Be Our Closer In 2015

In a great post earlier this week, Harris Decker posed the question as to whether Jenrry Mejia should be traded this offseason. The readers were split on this notion with 51% saying yes and 49% saying no. The reasons justifying this move, according to Decker, are health and pitching depth. These are both very valid reasons. However, I want to throw out a third, and perhaps most...

Poll: Would You Trade Jenrry Mejia?

Jenrry Mejia is coming off his most successful major league season. After being bounced around between the bullpen and the rotation for several years, he finally settled in as the teams closer in 2014. He saved 28 games and struck out more than a batter per inning (9.4 K/9). There were certainly moments of weakness for the young pitcher but he showed that he has the raw talent to...
