Jeurys Familia’s meltdown in the eighth caps off another nightmare for the Mets bullpen

Jeurys Familia’s meltdown in the eighth caps off another nightmare for the Mets bullpen

The Mets lost two games in one day at the hands of the bullpen. The day after Edwin Diaz blew a two-run lead in the ninth inning, he came back out and gave up a run in the tenth inning and the Mets lost Thursday’s suspended game to the Cardinals 5-4. The Mets then played their regularly scheduled game and lost that one as well—also thanks to another blown lead in the late innings—by a score of 9-5. The Mets struck early against Daniel Ponce de Leon, who had trouble throwing strikes most of the evening. In the bottom of the first, he issued two straight two-out walks and then Todd...

For Mets, there’s no relief in sight — literally and figuratively

First Edwin Diaz faced the music, as Jeurys Familia waited nearby at his locker. Then it was Familia’s turn. Batter up. “I think for any athlete, sometimes they do have bad seasons,” Familia said through a translator after goating a demoralizing 9-5 loss to the Cardinals. “And for me at this point, it hasn’t been...

Jeurys Familia implodes as Mets’ bullpen nightmare grows

Jeurys Familia implodes as Mets’ bullpen nightmare grows

Prosperity can be fleeting. For the Mets, it’s often gone in an instant — especially when their flammable bullpen is involved. In the span of 24 hours, they went from feeling good, headed to what looked like their sixth victory in eight games, to getting swept in a makeshift doubleheader and once again fading away...

Jeurys Familia is having a very bad season, but Mickey Callaway still goes to him

It’s difficult to decide which is worse: Jeurys Familia having a very bad year or, Mickey Callaway continuously trusting the right-hander in high-leverage situations. Familia entered the eighth inning with a Mets lead. It took the 29-year-old just two pitches to give that up. Met-killer Paul DeJong...

Final Score: Mets 6, Rockies 1 — Ice Cold

Final Score: Mets 6, Rockies 1 — Ice Cold

Todd Frazier provided all the offense the Mets needed as Noah Syndergaard shut down the Rockies. Thanks to a pair of powerful performances from Todd Frazier and Noah Syndergaard, the Mets secured a series victory over the Rockies in their 6-1 win. Everything broke right for the Mets as their hitting and their pitching both came through this afternoon. Coming off of three lackluster starts, Noah Syndergaard had little issue shutting down the Rockies, only allowing one hit in seven innings of work while striking out seven. The bullpen was a bit less successful as Jeurys Familia pitched a...

Your Sunday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets The Mets suffered another heartbreaking late-inning loss at the hands of the bullpen, falling to the Diamondbacks 6-5 in walk-off fashion in the eleventh inning. The Mets staked an early lead and Jacob deGrom retired fifteen Diamondbacks in a row at one point, but Jeurys Familia and Robert Gsellman combined to cough up the lead in the eighth and Tyler Bashlor allowed the winning run in the eleventh. To add injury to insult, deGrom was pulled from the game early with discomfort in his hip. Choose your...

Your Thursday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets For six innings, it looked like the Mets were heading for a win in Los Angeles. Noah Syndergaard pitched six innings of three-run ball, Pete Alonso contributed two two-run home runs, and Amed Rosario and Dominic Smith each added their own solo home runs to give the team a five-run cushion heading into the bottom of the seventh. However, the bullpen imploded, culminating in an Edwin Diaz meltdown. After Robert Gsellman and Jeurys Familia allowed a run in the seventh and eighth, respectively, the...

Final Score: Dodgers 9, Mets 8 - Disaster Diaz

The Mets had a three run lead and their star closer on the mound. They lost. In one of the most pathetic losses in recent memory, the Mets fell 9-8 to the Dodgers. Noah Syndergaard pitched well, allowing three runs over six innings on a couple of tough luck hits, and the Mets were up five by the time the bullpen took over. The Dodgers then scored one off of Robert Gsellman in the seventh, one off of Jeurys Familia in the eighth, and four off of Edwin Diaz in the ninth to come from behind. The absolute meltdown from the bullpen wasted an excellent offensive showing. Pete Alonso had two home...
