Tim Byrdak Had Some Fun With Autograph Seekers Sunday

Mets reliever Tim Byrdak has been known for his antics. From Little Jerry the Chicken to the spring training Hulk Hogan, the 39-year old always finds a way to keep the mood light.

As he walked down the right field line, a number...

Can the Mets compete with Tim Byrdak’s workload?

In his last 10 games Tim Byrdak has faced 11 batters. He has done an outstanding job, retiring 10 of the 11 batters and the only one to reach base drew a walk. Byrdak is a lefty specialist and manager Terry Collins is maximizing his use in that very role. Last year Collins did an outstanding job getting Byrdak to face a LHB in 65% of his PA. This year he is on a similar pace, facing...

How on earth will Mets replace Tim Byrdak’s 37.2 IP?

Lefty reliever Tim Byrdak underwent successful arthroscopic knee surgery to repair his torn meniscus and will be out for a minimum of six weeks.

Byrdak, Hu next on chopping block for Mets?

Last year’s Mets roster had a bunch of questionable additions on Opening Day that it took until mid-May or later to correct. This year’s roster had fewer head-scratching selections and the new management team has been quicker to address problems. Blaine Boyer, clearly the biggest Opening Day mistake, lasted all of 10 days. Lucas Duda was sent to the minors at the same time, a...

Tim Byrdak is pitching great but do Mets need him?

Another day, another scoreless inning for Tim Byrdak. So far this Spring, Byrdak has appeared in five games and has 5.1 scoreless IP. Yesterday he even picked up the save, although save chances will probably be non-existent for whoever earns the LOOGY job out of the Mets pen. Byrdak signed a minor league contract with the Mets in January and now has to be considered the favorite...
