I expect these guys to decrease our bullpen ERA by about .25 this season.

Only the best, Omar.

Way to get it done. These guys can be tough to negotiate with but you showed some real cahones.

There are two different Juan Lopezes. One of them has been in our organization for a long while, while the other one basically follows Dusty Baker around wherever he goes, but spent last season (his only as a Met) managing our GCL team. This second Lopez is the one who joined the Reds staff (under Baker not surprisingly).

Both the older Lopez and Racaniello have actually been on the Mets staff in the above-stated capacities for quite a while I think, Mets.com just never listed them because they are not "official" coaches. It's cool that they've added them now though. Although "bullpen pitcher" is just weird terminology for Lopez. Technically, I think he just throws BP. Wouldn't "bullpen pitcher" in the literal sense mean relief pitcher? :lol:
