Mets Start Reshaping the Landscape, Let Go Pat Misch and Mike O'Connor


Pat Misch
With the regular season ending only days ago, the first to go are the Minor League free agents.

For the Mets, the fleeing few have been Pat Misch and Mike O’Connor.

Misch had been with the Mets since 2009, claimed off waivers from the San Francisco Giants. The lefty enjoyed two respectable campaigns with the Mets, owning a 4.00 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and a 2.00 K/BB in 96.6 innings from 2009 to 2010. However, Misch couldn’t find a fit with the team in 2011, leading to multiple DFA’s and a forgettable 10.29 ERA, 2.14 WHIP, and 1.25 K/BB in just 7 innings.

Mike O’Connor was first signed by the Mets in 2010, but never pitched above Triple-A. But in 2011, the 30 year-old lefty was called-up on May 7, and pitched well for the Mets–posting a 2.70 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 2.67 K/BB. Despite his success at the Major League level, O’Connor only posted a 5.22 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 3.47 K/BB in 60.3 Minor League innings.

It’s possible either or both pitchers can still be re-signed, but it’s fair to say both are very replaceable.

Mets Starting Pitcher Candidates to replace Jon Niese in the rotation..


The Mets may need as many as two starters from Triple-A Buffalo during next week's series against the Marlins, but rainouts are forecast, potentially alleviating the need to use two of three from Miguel Batista, Pat Misch and Chris Schwinden.

Insiders predict the 40-year-old Batista, who was released by the St. Louis Cardinals earlier this season, may be with the Mets as soon as this Friday's series opener against the Braves and is the best option to start. (The Post says a Sunday rainout against the Braves could be made up during a series in Atlanta in September, with the Mets as home team one game, although the more likely scenario is a mutual Sept. 8 off-day.)

Batista, meanwhile, allowed four runs on nine hits, including a pair of homers, in 5 2/3 innings in his past start, but the newly promoted Nickeas said: "That line can be taken with a grain of salt a little bit because it was in Columbus. The couple of homers that they hit, it's a small park, and the wind was blowing out. I would say they actually didn't hit him that hard. They just hit homers there."

Nickeas went on to say Batista has "a lot" left at age 40.

"His velocity has been good," Nickeas said. "His command has improved steadily since he started."

Mets will bring up Dillion Gee, DFA Pat Misch


PORT ST. LUCIE, FL - FEBRUARY 24:  RY 24:  Dil...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
The Mets will designate left-hander Pat Misch for assignment to make room for Dillon Gee before tomorrow's game, reports Andy Martino of The New York Daily News (on Twitter).

Misch, 29, was called up earlier today to serve as bullpen depth during the Mets-Braves doubleheader. He appeared in the first game, allowing one run across two innings of work. The Mets outrighted Misch to Triple-A at the end of Spring Training, and he opted to remain with the team instead of becoming a free agent after clearing waivers. They did the same thing to him last season as well.

Mets News: Nick Evans, Luis Hernandez, and Pat Misch Go On Waivers


PORT ST. LUCIE, FL - FEBRUARY 24:  RY 24:  Pat...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets have placed INF/OF Nick Evans, INF Luis Hernandez and LHP Pat Misch on waivers.

Evans probably would have made the Opening Day roster if Carlos Beltran began the year on the disabled list.

Now he'll probably find himself in another organization before the week is through. The results of the waiver process are expected to be known on Wednesday.

2011 New York Mets Starting Rotation: An Optimistic Review


So we all have read that Johan Santana won’t be with us the first half of the season. This is a tough pill to swallow for New York Mets fans and to be completely blunt about it, I’m tired of the pessimism surrounding the New York Mets for this upcoming 2011 season from media and fans alike.

The world is not over! The season hasn’t even begun yet! It’s only December!

For my own piece of mind, here is what we are looking at for the 2011 starting rotation, and honestly, it’s not as bad as many of us think it is. Actually, it’s not that bad at all…


Mike Pelfrey
He’s got solid stuff, we know it and he knows it. Big Pelf just needs a little push over the edge to have the breakthrough year his 6’7” frame is capable of having.
He was definitely the best pitcher on staff last season, going 15-9 with a 3.66 ERA and that is including his horrible 0-3, 10.02 ERA July. Take that month away, and we would be looking at the 11th best pitcher in the NL going 15-6 with a 2.95 ERA.
Pelfrey has already shown that he can pitch like an ace, which makes 2011 that much more important for him.
Already tabbed the Opening Day starter by manager Terry Collins, Big Pelf has the rare opportunity to carry this pitching staff on his shoulders and lead them to a successful 2011 campaign.
Expect big things from Big Pelf in 2011.
