Smoker's it.

He's going to get grabbed IMO.

STOP CUTTING RELIEVERS FOR HITTERS.

Is that clear enough?

The only good thing about the Mets 40 man being a disaster right now is that there has to be a bunch of movement before the season starts....right?

Riiiiiiiight.

Well now we see why they traded for so many relievers last year, so they could have enough 'depth' to keep Matt Reynolds.

Plan: We're going to improve our starting pitching by investing in the bullpen, asking the starters to do less.

Action: Use Jerry Blevins for 162 games, pray Familia is good again, feign shock when plan doesn't work.

This is funny, but a Blevins injury of any sort would be quite sobering.


So they keep Smoker while he is getting lit up and they DFA him when he finally has a half way decent half a season. Yet, Robles, Montero and Reynolds remain. Maybe they have to finally figure it out before they get DFA'd. Unbelievable.

May I ask why this doesn't bother you? Except for Swardzyk they have reassembled the same 70 win team from last year and just praying for health. Meet the new year. Same as the old year.


Because it's 2 million dollars for a semi-productive player.


This is pretty much all that needs to be said here. Expected and sensible move.

Signing Reyes was pretty much expected; letting Smoker go was not expected. Hopefully there is a southpaw they will sign to take his place.

Yeah. Relievers like Smoker - who can’t throw strikes - are a dime a dozen. I mean, sure, sometimes they ‘figure it out’. But it’s just as likely the next lottery ticket they grab is even better. These are largely inconsequential. Hope the scouting dept is on the ball.
