3 Up & 3 Down: Frustrated By The Phillies Edition

Today’s Mets DUH Moment: Problem With Bullpen Is Because Of Rotation

Terry Collins believes that part of the problem with the team’s bullpen is because the starting rotation is failing to go deep into games.

Shaun Marcum didn’t exactly light up the radar guns in his first start back in Saturday’s 9-4 loss to the Phillies. He struggled with his command and quite frankly, judging I’d say he was lucky the Phillies only tagged him for three runs and not more in his four innings of work. I don’t believe […]
