The Mets Bullpen Has Been Lights Out

It’s only been 20 games, but there’s a lot to talk about with the Mets. There’s Neil Walker turning into Postseason Daniel Murphy. There’s Noah Syndergaard becoming the ace of the staff. Michael Conforto is already batting third, and he’s become the Mets’ best pure hitter. Also, the bullpen has been dominant. Really dominant. The Mets bullpen has recorded nine saves this […]

3 Up 3 Down: Back-to-Back Sweeps for Mets

3 Up 1. Unreal Neil If there was any doubt whatsoever of whether or not Neil Walker could step up in replacing Daniel Murphy, that has quickly been erased. Walker is on a tear right now, and after hitting a game winning two-run HR in the opener on Monday night, he went on to hit […]

Bastardo’s Surprising Role

At a time when Mets fans were still clamoring for Yoenis Cespedes, the Mets made a move designed to sure up their bullpen when they signed Antonio Bastardo to a two year $12 million contract.

Hansel Robles Could Be The Key To Mets Bullpen

The Mets bullpen has a chance to be much better than the one that the Mets made it to the World Series with last year. If Jerry Blevins can stay on the field, and keep his balance on those dangerous curbs, the Mets have the viable left-handed specialist that they missed all of last year. […]
