New York Mets: Top 10 WAR leaders in franchise history

WAR is one of the most popular ways in the modern era to measure a player’s value. In the history of the New York Mets, these ten men lead the franchise. Since their installment as an MLB franchise in 1962, the New York Mets have been one of the most polarizing teams in baseball.

Jeurys Familia is set to be one of the best setup men in baseball in 2019

Jeurys Familia is set to be one of the best setup men in baseball in 2019

Having rejoined the Mets, Familia will pair with Edwin Diaz to form a dominant combo in the bullpen. July 21, 2018, was a bittersweet day for Mets fans, as that was the day that the organization traded All-Star closer Jeurys Familia to the Oakland Athletics in exchange for two prospects: third baseman Will Toffey and reliever Bobby Wahl. On the one hand, the Mets were not a contending team and Familia was set to become a free agent at the end of the season, so it made all the sense in the world to get something of value in return for two months of his services—though whether or not the...

The Mets could use another reliever heading into 2019. Why not sign the best reliever left on the market? Welcome to One Last Move, where our writers pitch a move to the Mets that would close out their off-season and make the team better in 2019. As things currently stand, the Mets bullpen looks to be much better in 2019 than it was this past season. They’ve added arguably the best reliever in the game in Edwin Diaz, a solid set-up option in Jeurys Familia, and a middle-relief option with no shortage of high-leverage experience in Justin Wilson this offseason. Add those three acquisitions...

Why Jeurys Familia turned down closing to reunite with Mets

PORT ST. LUCIE — Jeurys Familia took a Mets uniform over a chance to pitch the ninth inning. The veteran reliever on Monday indicated he had multiple offers this winter to resume in a closer’s role, but couldn’t decline an opportunity to rejoin the organization in which he grew up and became an All-Star. “I...

One Last Move: Ervin Santana

Adding a better fifth starter would be a boon for the Mets. Welcome to One Last Move, where our writers pitch a move to the Mets that would close out their off-season and make the team better in 2019. Generally speaking, Brodie Van Wagenen has done a good job in his first offseason as GM. He turned prospects into maybe the best cost-controlled reliever (and maybe best without that modifier too) in baseball and an all-time great second baseman. He signed utilityman Jed Lowrie. The bullpen was further bolstered by Justin Wilson and the return of Jeurys Familia. Wilson Ramos will be the Mets...

One Last Move: Tony Sipp

The Mets should bring in one more reliever to close out their offseason. Welcome to One Last Move, where our writers pitch a move to the Mets that would close out their off-season and make the team better in 2019. The Mets have made significant additions to their bullpen this off-season. Edwin Diaz, Jeurys Familia, and Tony Watson are all legitimate late inning arms that improve on one of the worst bullpens in baseball last year. Still, more additions would be helpful. The opening day bullpen will likely consist of the aforementioned trio along with Seth Lugo, Robert Gsellman, and Kyle...

Mets: Was Jeurys Familia the right choice for the bullpen?

Was Jeurys Familia the best choice for the New York Mets bullpen or should they have spent elsewhere? With the offseason drawing to a close, the New York Mets can reflect upon an overly positive past few months. However, the one deal that stands out as a possible mistake, albeit a slight one, is the […] Mets: Was Jeurys Familia the right choice for the bullpen? - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - A New York Mets Blog Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
