I tell ya, this guy Nelly Figs if anything, is a real survivor. Just when you think he’s ready to get the boot, he now looks to be the long man in the Mets pen come opening day. The front office is finally coming to it’s senses as it looks like Jenry Mejia will go to Bingo to hone his pitching skills.
So the bullpen is now rounding into focus and come a week from Monday the pen should be:
Vitamin Pedro (take one every day)
Ryota Igarashi (please pick another number. 18 does not fit you)
Hisamori Takahashi (the second lefty)
Fernando Neve (que ABBA)
Nelly Figs (que Destiny’s Child)
What stands out about this bunch of relievers is just three-Rodriquez, Vitamin P, and Kiki C are true relievers, the other four can be plugged into the rotation as well as relieve. What does that tell you about the faith the front office has in Big Pelf, OP, and Maine Man ? Not exactly a vote of confidence eh?
