March 23, 2013 // 0 Comments

The Mets made possibly their most underrated signings of the offseason in late-January when they signed right-handed relief pitcher Scott Atchison to a minor league contract. Atchison, 36, has bounced around baseball in his 14-year professional career. He came out of TCU as a starting pitcher in [...]

March 22, 2013 // 0 Comments

With Frank Francisco working very slowly back from elbow soreness, presumably an effect of the surgery he underwent in December to remove bone chips from his throwing elbow, the Mets closer going into Opening Day will be Bobby Parnell. The 28 year-old right-hander will be getting his first [...]

The Mets made arguably their biggest addition of the offseason in late January, when they finally filled in the slot once filled by R.A. Dickey.
