The Mets are interested in signing RHP Kip Wells to a minor league contract, reports Evan Drellich of MLB.com.
Kip Wells? Is this the same Kip Wells that has a lifetime 4.71-ERA while giving up 635-BB and 151-HR in 1338.1-IP? And, he only produced 963-Ks. Wells would pitch 2013 as a 36-year old and went 4.58 last year for San Diego. He’s consistent ff he’s one thing.
I know I keep playing the same song, but, if 2013 is the set-up year for 2014 (which looks like the beginning of a new era for the Mets) than why not pitch Jenrry Mejia so we can see what we have?
If not, fine… but at least sign someone that had an ERA below 4.00 later than 2003.

You’d like to think that the back end of the Mets bullpen is set with Francisco and Bobby Parnell; however, regardless how well he does, Francisco is gone come 2014. I’d like to think that the future closer could come from the organization and we need to keep an eye on pitchers like Jenrry Mejia, Jeurys Famila, Ryan Fraser, Jeff Walters, Adam Kolarek, and Jack Leathersich. These are the pitchers that have the chance to make the 2014 pen.
For the record, Fernando Cabrera led Buffalo with 22 saves, while Robert Carson led a bunch of guys in Binghamton with nine.
I don’t have to remind you that there is very little going down regarding the Mets these days. I used to have five different subjects in my 8am post every day. I’m now down to four and that’s getting hard to even do. I also write for www.bigleaguefutures.com which is draft related. I’ve been working on the upcoming draft and talking to some of the pundits out there regarding which team will do what and the word is that the 2014 draft is going to be an outstanding one for pitchers. Remember what I said.
What just happened? I was sending one of the baseball prospects a message on Facebook and when I clicked on “send” it asked me if I wanted to proceed for the cost of $1. Is sending a message on Facebook a money making venture now? Did I miss the memo? And, since it was being sent to an amateur baseball player, does this violate his amateur status (just kidding)? Of cource I didn’t send the buck so I have no idea if the money would have gone to Facebook or the person I was emailing. Can someone explain what this is all about?
