With all the talk of the Mets plans for 2010 and beyond, few if any have mentioned the bullpen. As one of the lone bright spots for the team this season, the bullpen is going to need some attention next season. Currently, the Mets have two ex-All-Star setup men on their roster in Billy Wagner and J.J. Putz. Although, both have options for next season it is highly unlikely either will be brought back without [...]
You may remember that back on April 19th, the Mets purchased the contract of pitcher Nelson Figueroa from Buffalo to make a start against the Milwaukee Brewers. Figgy pitched a decent game allowing just three runs, but the Mets lost 4-2. Immediately after the game, the Mets designated Figueroa for assignment and came close to losing him as Figueroa refused the assignment and opted to test the free agent waters. Nothing happened for Figgy so [...]
Former Met reliever Darren O’Day was picked up on waivers by the Texas Rangers, dressed in Kason Gabbard’s jersey, and gave up a game-winning hit to Kevin Millar. O’Day reported to Rogers Centre for a game against the Toronto Blue Jays before there was a chance to stitch up a jersey with his name, so he was forced to wear Texas minor-leaguer Kason Gabbard’s jersey. O’Day was thrown into the game in the 11th, with [...]
Talk about your classic head scratchers. I would have loved to be a fly in the room when Omar and his brain-trust made the decision to DFA Darren O’Day, promote Nelson Figueroa, DFA Figueroa 18 hours later and promote Casey Fossum. I bet the conversation went just like this… Omar: Have a seat fellas, we need to figure out what we’re gonna do about this Mike Pelfrey situation. Adviser 1: What’s there to think about? [...]
Random thoughts on the Mets, baseball and global warming… Johan Santana proves that you don’t quibble about prospects when you are getting a proven Major League talent in return. The Twins will be lamenting this trade for years while Mets fans get treated to a pitching gem every time Santana takes the mound. One of those prospects we gave up was Phil Humber who was released on Friday. Santana has been the best pitcher in [...]
Newsday is reporting that Mike Pelfrey will not make his scheduled start Sunday against the Brewers because of right forearm tendinitis. Shortly after the Mets beat the Brewers, 5-4, on Friday, they announced that Nelson Figueroa will be Pelfrey’s replacement and that Darren O’Day had been designated for assignment to make room on the roster.The plan is for Pelfrey to miss only one start, be available out of the bullpen in an emergency this week [...]
According to NJ.com, Tim Redding got a break from his rehab in Port St. Lucie, Fla., and was invited to Miami for Sunday’s game. It’s still uncertain how long it will be before he is invited to join the team on the active roster. He is scheduled to throw his third bullpen session today and then face hitters Wednesday, with a possibility of his first game action coming a week from today. As long as [...]
