Alderson: Mejia will enter camp as starter; Familia, as reliever.

Alderson: Outfield is set, with possible exception of potential Bourn signing. #mets

Mike Kerwick ?@mikekerwick
Aside from pending Lyon deal, Alderson does not expect to add additional pieces to bullpen. #mets

Alderson does not want draft pick rule changed. Wants to examine interpretation of current rule. #mets

I agree with this decision. I think Mejia has potential, but it's not as a reliever. I'm glad they aren't going to replay that error from a few seasons ago.

"Alderson does not expect to add additional pieces to bullpen."

Considering Valverde, K-Rod, and Wilson are all still out there, that's a bit surprising and disappointing.

I did like this quote from him though:

"The bullpen can't be worse..." LOL

It's just an invitiation to camp. If he doesnt edge out anyone else, I suspect he's back to A Ball.

Too bad they signed Marcum. Sometimes, the move you don't make is the best one.

I heard Mejia tops 99 mph we can definitelyuse him if he impresses spring training

It's ok because if gee is absolutely horrible or someone is injured we have good backup plans in Wheeler and Mejia

Want Familia to get one more shot as a starter, but eh, I'm selfish.

I always thought that Familia was going to end up a bullpen guy anyway, we might as well get him as much experience in that capacity this year as possible. He is going to be an important guy in the bullpen moving forward.
