    With this bullpen, I think they'll be learning to lose a lot more than learning to win. I think they should try what they can right now to improve it, and then see where they are in three or four weeks. Waiting to decide to be buyers or sellers will just make it more likely that they're sellers, and it's another 2+ years of crappy play.

    Mets are 2-0 to start an 18-game run of games against four bad teams, ending on July 22. If they're 53-46 heading to the Stadium for the game on the 23rd, I'll be all in on going for it this season. If they're still a .500 team at that point, I believe that that shows that they're not for real. As I said in my previous post, I think that that requires them to try to address the bullpen now, not three weeks from now.

    Two more bullpen losses (this time combined with no hitting), and the Mets continue to do nothing about it. The 16-4 streak was nice, but I think that they're settling back to what they actually are, which is a barely mediocre team.

    These guys think they’re pitching in the Home Run derby today.

    Severino wasn't any good either, but you gotta love a bullpen that gives up not one, but two, grand slams!

    A little disappointed that Alonso was named to the All-Star team - I think that J.D. Martinez is far more deserving.

    Another game against a mediocre-at-best team given away by the bullpen. The Mets have lost 4 of their last 6, and the bullpen ERA over that time is 11.15.

    Joke bullpen tries to give another one away, but fails.

    We get a rare 7 innings from a starter with a decent lead and the BP almost chokes it away.

    Peterson has been pretty solid. Hopefully, he keeps it up.

    Nimmo not being an Allstar is criminal!

    Well, a month ago (on June 13) he was batting ..215, with a .708 OPS. Since then he's been one of the best hitters in baseball, but it's not really a surprise that he wasn't picked. If an outfielder can't play, he would be a worthy replacement. Even with his slow start, however, he certainly would have been a better choice than Alonso - choosing him was a joke.
