Tom Brennan: HOW ARE EX METS DOING THIS SPRING

The following is not an exhaustive listing, but here goes:

Bartolo Colon - getting tattooed.  So, for that matter, is RA Rickey. 36 runs in 36 innings pitched for the two.  The nursing home needs starters, boys.

Akeel Morris - 4 great innings, 7 Ks,  but an early Braves send down.  Old guys getting tattooed can stay, though.

Dilson Herrera - started hot, went 1 for his last 12, sent by Reds to AAA in mid-March.  Still not major league ready, it seems.  Jay Bruce, however, is.

Dario Alvarez - a great 11 innings with Texas.  Success story.

Gabe Ynoa - 1.98 ERA in 14 innings with the Orioles.  Making his being traded to the Os for cash even more puzzling.

Logan Verrett - tattooed with the Os.  No surprise to this writer.

Matt Koch - 4 good innings, sent down by the D Backs.

Jack Leathersich - 1 good inning, 2 Ks for Cubbies. That's it.

Brad Wieck - 5 wild innings for the SD Pods. Needs more work.

Luis Cessa - bad Yankee spring.  

Michael Fulmer?  Did not look.  He's great, but we got Yo, so I like our half of that deal.

John Gant and Matt Bowman - 12 innings each for the Cardinals this spring. Only 2 measly total earned runs.  Can we have them back, please?

That's my happy recap, in case you were wondering.  Any of the other alumni?  Look them up yourselves, don't be lazy!

Jon Gant placed on the Cardinals 10 Day DL for a groin strain

Hobie said...

Fulmer/Cespedes we can live with as what equitable trades are.

The two most angst-igniting were Ynoa & Bowman. I saw them in Lugo-land, before I realized there was such a thing.

Groin strains are no fun.

Hobie, Ynoa, Bowman and Gant are missed - they could all have been part of our 18 person pitching staff :)

How quickly we forget. Daniel Murphy.

Christopher Soto said...

Murph actually is not doing to well this spring.

He basically did nothing for 3 weeks while traveling with Team USA. Rode the pine while Ian Kinsler got all the playing time.

The 27 ABs he did get once he returned to camp.....185 AVG

Thomas Brennan said...

No one forgets Danny Boy, Adam, I was focusing on newer guys we did not keep. May Walker outperform Murph in 2017.
