Morning Grind: Mets Pitchers Have Been Terrible On Offense, Even For A Pitcher

Mets pitchers in 2011 have just been pathetic at the plate. Yes, pitchers are suppose to be “the easy out” in the lineup, and more often than not, they are retired, but not at the pitiful rate the Mets pitching staff has. Mets pitchers are batting a collective .073 with 5 walks compared to 55 punchouts in 123 at-bats. The Mets pitcher’s […]

Baseball has become an utter shell of what it once was, and that thought eats away at me every day.
