Tickets are Tree Fiddy, Yet The Mets get Shutdown by Lurch

Well the guy the Mets looked over this past off-season is currently leading the National League in ERA (0.70). While the remains of John Lannan had an eye popping ERA of 15.75.

Mets Can Send Lannan To Minors Without His Consent

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, before John Lannan was added to the Opening Day roster, the Mets had the southpaw sign an “advance consent” waiver. That means Lannan pre-authorized the Mets to send him to the minors at any point during the first 45 days of the season — which also would negate receiving his full $1.5 million big-league salary, which otherwise would...

New York Mets Bullpen: What can we expect?

With so much focus being put on who is going to play shortstop and first base for the New York Mets, not many people are looking at the makeup of the bullpen. While first base and shortstop are of vital importance, the bullpen ultimately will decide the outcome of many more games. So, what can we expect from the Mets pen? Honestly, I have no idea.
