I still think we're gonna be a juggernaut, Mets fans.
When you lose a lefty like Josh Edgin, who pitched really well in 41 short inning relief games, you groan....but in games he pitched in last year, the Mets were 12-35. So he is replaceable. I think Sandy capably figures this one out, perhaps moving a superior Steve Matz to the pen.
Carlos Torres? A fine innings eater - yum, innings, feed me some more. And likely a mighty fine arm like Montero, and other ones to fill in capably. No Valverdes may apply – quality only. No Edgin? Still a pen that should approach JUGGERNAUT status.
Stay positive, folks...and say after me: Jug-ger-naut.
