BASEBALL: Shut The Door

I have to say, at this point there just isn't anybody in the Mets' bullpen I would trust. Tonight's game was yet another fiasco . . . I suppose Weathers has been reliable at times in the past, but he's probably the best they've got, and that's not saying much (Looper can be dominating when he's on, but he's basically just a cheaper, wilder Benitez). I know spending money on the bullpen is justifiably a low priority for a rebuilding team, but that doesn't make it more fun to watch, and it does make me appreciate Bobby Valentine, who whatever his other faults always managed to put together a pen that could hold leads.

Love the site, Crank. Hadn't seen it before. I'll have to link it.

Crank,
If you want to feel better about your bullpen take a look at ours in Cleveland. Yours has been stellar in comparison.
