Seth Lugo was the Mets’ most reliable relief pitcher (again) in 2019

Photo by Rich Schultz/ In his first season exclusively as a reliever, Lugo excelled in a high-leverage role. Almost exactly one year ago, I wrote that Seth Lugo was the most reliable reliever for the Mets in 2018. One year later, I find myself writing the exact same thing about this season. Much like last year, the Mets made moves in an attempt to reinforce the bullpen around him—this year it was the signings of Jeurys Familia and Justin Wilson and the acquisition of Edwin Diaz from the Seattle Mariners.

When Brodie Van Wagenen took the job as the Mets general manager, his number one priority was fixing a broken bullpen which had cost the team so many games over the past couple seasons. Enter Edwin Diaz. The Mets...

Mets Morning News for September 27, 2019

Photo by Emilee Chinn/ Your Friday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets In what could’ve been his last start in a Mets uniform, Zack Wheeler looked dominant against the Marlins.

Unfortunately a blown strike three call led to two home runs the following inning, and Wheeler’s night only ended in frustration and not a glorious ride into the sunset. The Mets couldn’t recover and another home run given up by Edwin Diaz sealed their fate against the...
