Grading the Mets pitchers

Friday, October 16th, 2009

A few days late, but oh well.  This is the last you’ll hear from me for about 10 days, as I’m going on vacation next week, but I suspect somebody else will post something while I’m gone.  Or…they won’t.  Either way, with the Yankees and Phillies playing in their respective League Championship Serieses, I can think of no better time to get away, other than maybe the following week if they wind up playing in the World Series.  Here are the Mets’ pitchers grades, and if you thought the hitters grades were ugly, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

I don’t want to hear about a lack of work or anything…right now, he is getting rocked out there, he just isn’t very good.  Too many walks, too many extra base hits, not enough strikeouts.  Frankie (he’s not K-Rod anymore) isn’t getting the job done, and he’s not worth a quarter of what he is making this season.  Prediction: the Mets will find some way to shut him down to keep from paying that ludicrous option.
