The relief pitching needs more help... 

Post#1 » by Stannis » Sat Jan 30, 2016 7:38 pm

As of right now...

- Robles and Gilmartin will be the long relievers.
- Blevins will mostly be a lefty specialist
- Addison Reed and Bastardo will be the 7 or 8 inning guy to setup Familia
- Familia will close.

It's likely Colon will make bullpen appearances if Wheeler returns well and the other young 4 starters are healthy.

Clippard is still a free agent, so maybe Alderson can resign him on a good deal, but he seems to be on the decline.

All these guys except Familia throw significantly slower than the starters. And I think the opposition loves that.

I honestly think the Mets need another dominant reliever to pair with Familia, which will require a trade not a frugal signing.
