Should Jon Niese Be Shut Down?September 23, 2010
Question – Jon Niese has a career high in IP this year. He hasn’t looked good lately. Should the Mets shut him down?
In the video below I answer my own question. Below this video are responses I received from my Facebook and Twitter friends.
DavidC_57 yes becuz lets say the Mets r in it next year they want Neise to be able to go down the stretch up to 200 innings
FormerDirtDart Looks like Niese in line for 2 more starts. I think it is unlikely Mets shut him down. I think Org. is desperate for .500
netsjetsfan I want to make a smart ass remark but I wont.
sabometrics It would definitely make sense to shut him down. Weren’t they considering it before?
mikedeeez It shouldnt be a question. He should have been shut down a week or two ago.
Cntwll yeah might as well. I’d give him these next few innings to lower that ERA back down under 4 where it has bascially been all year
Mets_Fever they should have shut him down four starts ago
Cntwll now that I look at it, niese probably should have been shut down
Cliff Miller May as well shut him down. The entire team shut down much earlier.
Jason Bornstein 3rd rookie year. makes sense to shut him down. there’s been talk about it for a few weeks now. soon, they’ll run out of time to shut him down.
