The New York Mets are in serious trouble. Any fan watching the early games could have told you that, though. However, they are in worse shape than I ever thought they’d be in. Through the first ten games, their pitching as a whole has been absolutely horrendous. I’m not going to lie and say I […]

Mets Flash: Parnell Can’t Hold Lead, Pressure Is Mounting

Once again, the Mets bullpen could not hold a lead and they fell to the Rockies 7-6 tonight at Citi Field. This time the culprit was setup man Bobby Parnell who could be losing his grip on his role as a late inning reliever. Terry Collins was frustrated tonight and said he didn’t care how […]
