Mets beat the Yankees. The Yankees could not only not score off the Mets bullpen, but the Mets of all teams ended their Home Run streak.

That's what happens when you get to play primarily AL teams I guess. If the mets got to play mostly AL teams, good chance they'd be .500 even with the junk bullpen :|

JD Davis is a mensch. Jeff McNeil is invoking Tony Gwynn. Conforto is my pride and joy.

If only they had a real bullpen lol

Well the good news for the Mets is that the bullpen has nowhere to go but up now. Can't get much worse than last month.

I figured this was gonna be another split. I wouldn't be surprised if the Mets win tomorrow as well.

I would be. Vargas is fine but after the bp not giving up runs today, they'll be primed for it tomorrow

The Atlanta Braves are still paying Bruce Sutter $1.12 million a year in a deferred payment through 2021 and he will also receive a final balloon payment of $9.1 million.

His deferred payments started in 1985


Stop trying to be like the rest of the brainless lazy reporting trying to generate clicks and make this all about the Mets when everyone under the sun has done this, before, after, and since - and more often than not, they are good deals, this one included. There's an endless amount of things to call the Mets out on that they have f***ed up. This is not one, and it's so stupid this gets the attention that it does.

Here is a list of just some of the tons of deferred deals that exist:

Just give it a few years and nobody will mention Bonilla because the Chris Davis deal was so bad.
