Analyzing the New York Mets’ Winter Meetings

The 2014 MLB Winter Meetings concluded Thursday in San Diego, and with it the Mets find themselves not all too different. While Boston, Los Angeles, and Miami made headlines dealing top stars and prospects, more than half the league laid low. Including, for the most part, the Mets. The Mets gained John Mayberry Jr., a valuable platoon piece to compliment Lucas Duda. The Amazinâ...

Lefty Reliever Trade Targets For Mets

One of the Mets biggest stated needs this Winter is acquiring a second lefty to pair with Josh Edgin in the bullpen.

The Mets also have some unproven options that are on the 40-man roster including Dario Alvarez and Jack Leathersich. Alvarez has great stuff, but...

The Mets lost to the Padres when their pitcher fell off the mound

Is this the most “LOLMETS” play ever? Tie game, two outs, bottom of the ninth, winning run on third…and Josh Edgin trips and falls off the mound when Seth Smith hits a tapper to the first base side of the diamond. Losing is never a good thing, but losing like this is just…well, it’s embarrassing.

Assuming free will, would any other manager utilize Josh Edgin this way?

Let’s say you’re a veteran baseball man, well-respected in the industry. You’ve taken three years off from the game and have only followed it sporadically. You tune in every now and then to the ESPN or Fox Games of the Week but you catch most of the playoffs and World Series in your time away from the game.

Josh Edgin and the overdue death of LOOGY culture

If asked to identify the strength of the team coming into the season, most people would have said the starting rotation. But here in early July, the strength of the squad for nearly the last month has been the bullpen. The relievers got off to a poor start but the Mets shuffled through some of the dead weight and since June 9, the bullpen has been fantastic. What’s so special...

Josh Edgin cruises, bad ideas and Daniel Murphy, remembering Tony Gwynn

For just the fourth time in 16 outings this year for the Mets, Josh Edgin pitched a full inning last night.  All it took for that to happen was for the bullpen to have to contribute 15.2 innings over the past three games.  It’s worth noting that Edgin retired all three batters he faced.  In fact in his four outings where he’s gone a full inning (or more) this year, Edgin...
