We have recalled RHP Chris Mazza from Triple-A Syracuse and designated RHP Wilmer Font for assignment. #Mets


This is just one of those like 0 thought process moves that may have no real impact, but makes you reallllllllllllly question the logic.

Font was in a mop up role and pitching fine, really, comparative to the rest of the pen certainly, and with big stuff (and no roster flexibility - and you jsut gave up a decently live arm for). Mazza is a minor league Rule 5 guy who is a decent little story and you have in case of emergency, but is basically Paul Sewald in the absolutely best case scenario. He's also gotten hit around in 3 of his last 4 starts in Syracuse. And so we swap mop up guys, lose a live arm in the process, and Mazza likely just goes down in a week when we need a "fresh arm" for Peterson or Rhame or whoever.

I know everyone will roll their eyes at this, but they should use Mazza in the rotation and keep Matz in the pen. Make the 5th starter a revolving door, while solidifying the pen a bit with Matz. Matz can hold down the 7th or 8th inning from now on or even swap the 9th with Diaz if lefties are due up.
We are losing for the third season in a row with this rotation (although not because of it). Try something different. Anything different.

Not going to cry about this one but it does scream ‘bad process’. Questionable decisions are starting to pile up.

This really stinks. I was accustomed to having a Wilmer on the team

BTW they gave up a 18/19 year old 6'6 who throws mid 90s for Font.

Could’ve DFA’ed Bob Gsellman, but then we’d miss his next 9 inning run where “for reals he’s figured it out this time.”

Exactly. I’m sure the cash strapped Rays would have done t for 1m in cash. Wait I forgot the NY team with their own cable network and ticket and concession prices I’m sure in the top half if not top 10 in baseball can’t afford a top payroll or cash.
