The Mets are putting together a TEAM not 3 superstars and 6 other guys. >>>>
hopefully it works out in a couple years.
strength in numbers and they are piling up on pitchers
>>> There's strength in numbers if you're going to a gang fight in an alley. In regards to the bullpen, there's strength in TALENT, of which we've stockpiled precious little. One thing you seem to be missing is that - in an admission of just how FAIL this signing really was - Sandy is actively looking for someone else to be able to step in and close, because fat Frank stinks on ice. You can stockpile all the mediocre arms you want and call it "strength" but good luck getting those last three outs pal.
I see what you're trying to do there but at least Bell was a guy who wouldn't have been second-guessed signing at the time. Many here (including myself) knew when they signed that fat Frank and Rauch were wastes of money.
The difference is Bell was an unexpected bust, Frank was an expected one.
Now adding Lyons . I suppose he is another no talent pitcher in your opinion. You know like Feliciano and the others right.lol
>>> Feliciano who missed how long with a bad arm? But you're counting on him. What's wrong with you? And yes, Lyon blows.
Quantity does not beat quality.
"The difference is Bell was an unexpected bust"
You mean like Ramirez for us?
>>>> That's fine. Fat Frank and Rauch were still awful and it was called at the time. So I'm not sure what you think you proved.....but you didn't.
How many losses did he have in his "great" season again?
"How many losses did he have in his "great" season again?
Yea because that is a great way to measure BP arms, how about his WHIP of under 1.00, or the fact that opposing batters had a .250 OBP against him, which was 12th best amongst all pitchers in baseball.
So if he comes in in a tie game strikes out two lets up a seeing eye single and the next pitcher comes in and lets up a HR he pitched worse than the pitcher who let up the 2 run HR, since he is the one that got the loss?
Frank Francisco must have had a better season than Aroldis Chapman since he only had 3 losses and Chapman had 5...
