Jerry Blevins, Jim Henderson and reliever usage

The Mets have been riding their relievers hard here in the beginning of 2016, as their starters have not been able to consistently go seven or more innings. On Saturday, Addison Reed pitched in his third straight game and Sunday it was Jeurys Familia’s turn to pitch three in a row.

The bullpen that year was headlined by Billy Wagner and Aaron...

Nimmo on Fire, Ynoa Loses First Decision

After a successful eight-game road trip during which the Las Vegas 51s (24-19) went 6-2, they returned home to Cashman Field in first place in their division.

Who is the Mets Ty Kelly?

Some signings make front page news. Others won’t even make the footnotes. When the Mets signed Ty Kelly on November 13, 2015, no alarms sounded. Quietly, though, Kelly has turned himself into one of the top hitters in the Mets’ minor league system. Kelly’s .391 batting average leads all qualified hitters in affiliated baseball, and his .478 on base percentage is first among...

The only issue is every team has a number one starter in the rotation, but not every team has an “ace.” An ace is shutdown. An ace is a guy that can take the ball at any given time and dominate. An ace is Noah Syndergaard, and he is taking over as the face of the New York Mets...

What’s Wrong With Matt Harvey?

Yes. What is wrong with Matt Harvey? Because if you watch him pitch, it seems like everything is wrong, and yet nothing at all. At least, it’s hard to put your finger on it. You run down the list of things that could explain why he has an ERA near five and the worst ERA estimators of his career, and you find little things here or there. But do you find a smoking gun?
