Analyzing The Mets Bullpen

Posted on by Kerel Cooper

The Mets Bullpen blew 27 saves last season and was a big part of the team collapsing for the second season in a row. In this video post, I look at the off season moves as it pertains to the bullpen and outlook for 2009.

  1. First, I’d like to say you did another great job on this latest post. Secondly, I also agree that the addition of JJ Putz should allow this team to close out games in a dominant manner. In closing, what are your thoughts on Billy Wagner? Will he ever wear a Met uniform again and can he contribute in 2009. He is another left handed arm….. and coming off injury. Thoughts?

    Thanks for the comments Ron. From what I have heard it’s possible Wagner might have a shot of coming back in August/September. If that happens and he is able to give the Mets anything down the stretch, he would be a great last season roster addition. The Mets have a long way to go before they can even think about that though.

    I agree with your closing statement. I’ll be shocked if the Mets miss the post season again and we blame it on the bullpen…again. The lack of a second lefty is a slight concern but we could start the season without that component and get by for a while.

    dave_doyle – thanks for the comments. The more I think about it, if the Mets miss the playoffs I think it will be because of the offense. I have a lot of concerns about the offense. Analyzing The Mets Offense will be coming in a couple days :)
