Bobby Parnell has officially been placed on the disabled list with a herniated disk in his neck. Sandy Alderson suggested surgery ultimately may be required, according to Adam Rubin. “He had a series of injections last week. He had an epidural yesterday. And so right now we’re simply evaluating how he responds to those two treatments,” Alderson said. “We’ll know more in the next two or three days. It is conceivable that if those don’t work, something […]
UPDATE: Mets announced that Pedro Feliciano has been added to the 40 man roster and will join the team to replace the DL bound Josh Edgin. Feliciano, 36, has retired all six batters he has faced — four lefties, two righties — over three appearances since the promotion from Binghamton to Las Vegas. Overall, Feliciano has made 22 appearances as he continues his rehab, and in 21.0 innings pitched he has a 1.29 ERA while allowing just 14 […]
With the trade deadline set to expire at 4:00 PM today, columnist Joel Sherman reports that one Mets official described interest in any of their as nibbles. One Mets official described “nibbles” on players, but nothing more serious. And the Mets have decided if they cannot obtain something they feel strongly about for their future, then why trade Marlon Byrd or Bobby Parnell. Outside executives have said the best the Mets could hope for on Byrd is an […]
Sandy Alderson stated that he would have to be “blown away” to deal Bobby Parnell earlier this month, now there is further clarification as to an asking price. The Mets are seeking a top, or a “wheeler type”, prospect in return for their hard-throwing closer reports Jon Heyman via Twitter. #mets seek a top prospect (a “wheeler type”) for bobby parnell. will not be unhappy to hold onto him. — Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) July 29, […]
The 1983 Mets finished their season winning 31 of their final 60 games, including a stretch from July 31st to August 23rd where they went 15-7. They also won six of their final eight. Many will point to 1984 and the way the Mets stormed out of the gate as the turning point, but for me, the writing was on the wall as early as the second half of 1983, when their run in early August signaled […]
Braves vs. Mets RHP Jeremy Hefner (4-7, 3.93) vs. RHP Tim Hudson (7-7, 4.08) Starting Lineup Eric Young, Jr. – LF Daniel Murphy – 2B David Wright – 3B Marlon Byrd – RF Ike Davis – 1B Kirk Nieuwenhuis – CF Anthony Recker – C Omar Quintanilla – SS Jeremy Hefner – RHP Game Notes RHP Carlos Torres earned his first big league win as a starter in almost four years by pitching in and out of trouble for […]
The New York Mets gift-wrapped a game last night to Atlanta. However, there’s nothing to like after hearing Bobby Parnell, who did more dancing than pitching after blowing his fifth save opportunity. The Mets don’t want to deal Parnell because they believe he’s their closer of the future. His 18 saves is a good indicator, but he’s not immune from some head scratching and wonder. Yes, Parnell was victimized by a hit against the shift, a […]
Updating this post from Thursday, Terry Collins threw his weight around on the matter of trading Marlon Byrd. In short, Collins is hoping that it doesn’t happen and is fearful of how a team struggling to score runs would survive the loss of their second most productive hitter, “If there’s moves made before the end of the season, whenever that might be, I certainly think if you’re taking one of your better bats out of […]
Disclaimer: I am not necessarily in favor of trading Bobby Parnell, but since there’s a recent post for the opposite side of this argument, I figured I could play a little devil’s advocate. Bobby Parnell is arguably one of the hottest names on the back-end relief market right now. He hasn’t allowed a home run all year, his WHIP is under 1.00, and his ERA sits at 2.30 with 17 saves. In his first full […]
