Retooled Mets Bullpen closes the door on Reds
The retooling of the Mets Bull-Pen sure looked great in its first trial run as JJ Putz and Francisco Rodriguez shut the door on a masterpiece by Johan Santana.
Santana went 5 and 2/3 innings of three hit ball before Sean Green,JJ Putz and K-Rod closed the door as the Mets Downed the Reds 2-1. This is just the way the Mets designed it when they went out and got these arms.
I cant think of anyone better to fill Billy Wagner’s shoes this season.K-rod who had 62 saves for the Angels last season signed a 3 year $37 million dollar deal with the Mets in the off season will bring the heat all year.
Hopefully these new arms will prevent last years collapse in which Santana saw 5 of his leads blown by the bull-pen. You gotta love what the Mets look like on paper now lets see what they look like in July.
