Carlos Torres is yet another victim of LOOGY strategy

Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door. This time honored saying, paraphrasing a quote from Emerson, speaks to the power of innovation. Be new, different and better and the world will love you. As Mets fans, we would be thrilled if the team achieved even two of those three things. Meatloaf and all, you know. Unfortunately, we have to settle for one...

Carlos Torres Beating Himself Up After Rough 13th, Literally

As our own 72Metsfan recapped earlier today, the frustration of an underwhelming season was readily apparent Thursday evening during the Mets 13 inning loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. One of the players who lost his cool was Carlos Torres, who after a valiant extra-inning effort was simply out of gas by the thirteenth and the Brew-Crew took full advantage. Thanks to the limited commercial...

Mets reliever Carlos Torres punches himself in head after blowing game (GIF)

New York Mets reliever Carlos Torres had an appearance to be forgotten on Thursday night. Actually, it was the kind of outing that likely left Torres wishing for a frontal lobotomy, anything to help him forget how he gave up four runs on seven hits and a walk to the Milwaukee Brewers during an inning […] The post Mets reliever Carlos Torres punches himself in head after blowing game...

Carlos Torres: The steady rollin’ man

“I’m a steady rollin’ man. I roll both night and day. I’m a steady rollin’ man. I roll both night and day.” —Robert Johnson So far, so good. At least as far as Carlos Torres goes this year. He has maintained a very effective approach to hitters throughout all his appearances out the New York Mets’ bullpen. He’s...

Is too much of Carlos Torres a bad thing?

There have been some solid long relievers in the history of the New York Mets: Don Cardwell, Ray Sadecki, and Terry Leach all come to mind. A good performance by a team’s primary long reliever is a mixed blessing. A significant contribution by a long reliever (just like a team’s primary pinch-hitter) can be beneficial to a team’s winning percentage but could be the result of...

Torres Has Earned His Spot In The Rotation

When we signed journey-man Carlos Torres to a deal in the off-season, I was somewhere between disappointment and apathy, honestly. I thought that he would serve no purpose on this team and that he was wasting space in a Triple-A rotation. I made comments akin to, “This is exactly the reason no other Triple-A affiliate wants to take the field for the Mets.” And yes, as he struggled...

What exactly is Carlos Torres’ off-speed pitch?

That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet And that’s how Shakespeare ties into Carlos Torres. It’s time to take a look at Torres and his nasty off-speed pitch, which seems to me to be a slider. But if you go to his FanGraphs page, it shows him throwing four pitches – fastball, cutter, curve and change. Not a slider in sight, or so it would seem. Their...
