Our Bullpen is Insane

Yesterday it was Dan Murphy, indeed subing for injured Marlon Anderson and slipping in the No. 28 jersey that just came out of Brandon Knight‘s wash. Now today, following a shameful performance from Billy Wagner, it’s Class AA reliever Eddie Kunz set to make his Mets debut.

Kunz, according to the roster posted at Mets.com, will wear No. 44 and take the roster slot of John Maine, who, not surprisingly, has been placed on the disabled list (in Mets Medicalese, “strain” means “tear,” “slight” means “life-threatening” and “day-to-day” means “Hospital for Special Surgery.”) Word is Wagner in the meantime is to have an MRI to explore the left arm that’s been killing the season. This all could mean “Crazy Eddie” (I just made up that nickname but for a 6-foot-5, 265-pound closer-to-be in New York, it’s poifict) is the closer for today, I don’t know. In accordance with the post below, looks like Jon Niese is next.

    Yo. Did you hear Hernandez call Wagner’s season “nothing short of terrific” on Saturday night’s broadcast as he was warming up. After the debacle, all Keith had to say was: “you have to give the Astros credit”. Ugh! This team is going to drive us crazy the rest of the year. It won’t surprise me at all if we make another run, I see the Phils and Fish enough to believe no one is running away with this division.

    And now Billy Wagner’s

    And now Billy Wagner’s 15-day DL stint and the callup of 49 Ruddy Lugo further muddies matters, including this statement from the article on mets.com that gives me great pause: “Aaron Heilman is believed to see the majority of save opportunities in Wagner’s absence.”

    Save me.

    I read and re-read your post to see if you used the ‘insane’ line, then after I posted it I see you used it in the headline. I’m a tool.

    You’re no tool. I just hope

    You’re no tool. I just hope Crazy Eddie takes off better than my last Met nickname, “Bazooka” Joe Smith.

    I ‘borrowed’ Bazooka Joe

    I ‘borrowed’ Bazooka Joe from you, and I use it all the time. Unfortunately, it hasn’t caught on any better among my folks than it has among yours.
