Ready, Willing, But Are They Able?

All three Mets relievers who are expected to try their hands at replacing Francisco Rodriguez weighed in on the situation on Thursday. Here is what each of them had to say about closing. “If nobody gets an ego, we’ll be just fine,” said Isringhausen (1-0, 3.14 ERA, 35 games). I don’t think any of us will […]

Sandy Alderson is working the phones this afternoon about Carlos Beltran. There’s a chance he could be taking more calls than making them. “Carlos’ situation is well-known, and it’s not surprising given his situation and performance this year that a lot of interest has been expressed,’’ Alderson said. “We have not pursued that interest in […]

Izzy’s Presence Must Remain For Now

Many of the Mets’ young relievers will agree that Jason Isringhausen’s presence in the bullpen this season has had a positive effect on all of them. Future closers Bobby Parnell and Pedro Beato have continued to develop and mature at the major league level this season. Dillon Gee has been a revelation. D.J. Carrasco, Tim Byrdak […]

Bobby Parnell Is No Slam Dunk As Mets Closer

With the Mets idle on this first day of the second half of the season, I decided to do some number crunching and digging around on Baseball Reference, my number one resource for dope on the Mets. I came across some interesting stats on Bobby Parnell. With the young fire-baller ready to assume his biggest […]
