The implications of the Mets’ three-out restriction on Edwin Diaz

The implications of the Mets’ three-out restriction on Edwin Diaz

The Mets’ intentions to try to keep Diaz healthy are good, but such a rigid policy is concerning on many levels. As Jeurys Familia struggled to get outs during Monday night’s game against the Phillies, many were clamoring for Edwin Diaz to come in to try to get a four-out save. Diaz did get a save, but not until the eleventh inning. The Phillies tied the game up against Familia and Robert Gsellman, forcing the contest into extra innings, leading to questions after the game regarding Diaz’s usage directed at Mickey Callaway. Callaway answered the questions in a direct, but unexpected...

Jeurys Familia needs to step it up for Mets bullpen formula to click

PHILADELPHIA — The issue of Edwin Diaz’s non-use in eighth innings might not be so pronounced if Jeurys Familia, the Mets’ primary setup reliever, were performing. But Familia entered Tuesday’s game at Citizens Bank Park among the team’s biggest disappointments this season. In nine appearances, the veteran right-hander had a 6.48 ERA and 2.160 WHIP....

Mets sneak away with a win in Philadelphia

Mets sneak away with a win in Philadelphia

Despite their best efforts, they won this game. It was a see-saw, infuriating game at Citizens Bank Park, but somehow the Mets walked away with a 7-6 win after eleven innings of stress. Despite Noah Syndergaard not having his best night, the Mets held a one-run lead heading into the eighth inning. Justin Wilson had been warming up earlier in the game but Mickey Callway went with Jeurys Familia instead. Familia, of course. came in on a double switch and Pete Alonso was out of the game in favor of Dominic Smith. From pitch number one, Familia had nothing. After a single and a walk to open...

Mets Morning News for April 16, 2019

Your Tuesday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets It took them a while, but the Mets managed to pull out a win over the Phillies in extra innings despite some shaky pitching all around. Noah Syndergaard had what was arguably his worst outing since 2017, giving up five runs in five innings. The bullpen was slightly better, with the notable exception of Jeurys Familia, who continued his early season struggles. Still, the Mets’ bats kept them in the game, and some nifty base-running by Juan Lagares helped them bring home the win. Choose your recap:...

Final Score: Mets 7, Phillies 6-Improbable victory in Philly

The Mets were lucky to win this one. Despite a bullpen implosion and shaky managerial decisions, the Mets eked out a 7-6 win over the Phillies. The Mets had a one-run lead heading into the eighth but Jeurys Familia and Robert Gsellman combined to make that lead disappear. Familia loaded the bases and Gsellman walked Jean Segura to bring home the tying run. The game remained tied until the eleventh when an error on a hard-hit ball by Michael Conforto brought home the winning run. The pitching as a whole was shaky all night long. Noah Syndergaard handed back every lead the Mets held and then...

Final score: Mets 9, Twins 6—Never easy

The Mets were up 9-1 but made things interesting late in their victory. The Mets won a sloppy Wednesday evening affair 9-6 over the Twins. Noah Syndergaard was brilliant for seven innings before running into trouble in the eighth, and Jeurys Familia stumbled initially in relief. Edwin Diaz was also less-than-perfect, allowing a solo home run in a non-save situation, though he did manage to protect the lead to close out the game. Offensively, the Mets continued to roll, though that was largely due to an implosion from the Twins’ bullpen. After being no-hit for the first 4.1 innings, nine...

Max Scherzer takes the mound this afternoon in Citi Field as the Nationals try to win their three-game set with the Mets. Davey Martinez’s offense struggled to get much of anything going against New York Mets’ lefty Steven Matz, who tossed five scoreless innings on Saturday afternoon, but they did manage to score a run off Robert Gsellman in the sixth, one off Justin Wilson in the top of the seventh, and three off Jeurys Familia in the top of the eighth inning before yet another bullpen implosion in the bottom of the eighth cost them the game. “It’s just tough,” Martinez said...

Jeurys Familia grateful Mets picked him up

Jeurys Familia could have picked a better time to cough up the first home run he has allowed at Citi Field since the 2016 NL wild-card game, and the first multi-homer game against him in his career. The returning setup man was tagged for two homers to account for three Nationals runs in Saturday’s eighth...

Final Score: Mets 6, Nationals 5 - Bombs away

The Mets’ power bats came a live in an exhilarating win. In what was the most exciting game of the young season, the Mets topped the Nationals 6-5 in thrilling fashion. Steven Matz fought his control but ultimately tossed five scoreless innings, but the middle part of the Met bullpen struggled again, with Robert Gsellman, Justin Wilson, and Jeurys Familia all giving up runs. The offense came through, however, and Edwin Diaz nailed things down for his fourth save of the season. The Mets had been in a home run drought to start the year, but that is no longer the case. Two solo shots from...
