People wonder who our LOOGY will be next year in the Mets' pen in Queens.
Jerry Blevins? Boone Logan? Both costly. Both aging a bit.
May I suggest, as an alternative: DAVE ROSEBOOM?
Lefty Dave put up spectacular numbers in AA last year:
52 games, 1.87 ERA, 14 of 15 saves.
Lefties crushed him - oh, sorry, it was the other way around, with them hitting just .141 (11 for 78, with 30 Ks) against the Boomer. Can you say SWISH?
Knowing how much Sandy and Terry love experience, and love not having guys skip AAA, I have to say that nevertheless, Roseboom earned real consideration - he rocked AA last year, and at minimum wage, far cheaper than Blevins and Logan, maybe he and Edgin duke it out, or both make the opening day 2017 pen.
If he makes it, there may be a rose boom to help the Trump economy in 2017.
