BULLPEN BURN OUT? IT’S ONLY JUNE!!!!!!

The 7th, 8th and 9th innings were supposed to be a strength due to the new and improved bullpen for the Mets this season and in April and May it was but now due to injury to John Maine and Ollie Perez and the ineffectiveness of any pitcher not named Santana or Nieve the bullpen specifically Bobby Parnell is near exhaustion and it’s only June.

It’s good to see the light bulb go off over Jerry Manuel’ head as he finally realized what all Mets fans have that he is burning out Parnell and Pedro Feliciano. The cool and groovy demeanor of J-Man is also starting to wear as well as someone needs to put a foot in ass of Big Pelf. I love Big Pelf and I want him to succeed to the highest level but he starting to become as unfocused in his starts as Ollie P.

His body language on the mound is a bit unsettling as he fidgets with his cap and tries to regain his composure. It has to be unnerving to the team. I mean D-Wright had to get in his grill as Wright is seldom to speak a discouraging word even as the skies of $iti Field grow cloudy each game.

It’s nice that Manuel has realized that Brian Stokes is on the team maybe he thought he was part of the ground crew or a beer vendor.

After each appearance by Parnell and Feliciano I need an ice pack on my arm just watching them go out there every game.

Ken Takashai and Jon Switzer should not be on the big league team. The only reason either one is here is due to their ability to throw with their left arm especially Switzer who got the call up over Elmer Dressen who is having a better season in Buffalo that Switzer but is right handed. Should be here and Switzer on DFA list

An now that Creepy Tony LaRusa and his Cardinals come to town in first place in the central just what the Mets need HAPPY!! HAPPY!!! JOY!!! JOY!!!
