Who might have imagined that the New York Mets Pitching Staff would be the most grounded part of the group, while the Hitting Staff would be the most fragile? Saturday, April seventeenth against the Saint Louis Cardinals, the Mets Hitting Staff was closed down until the highest point of the nineteenth inning when Jose Reyes scored a y2met sudden spike in demand for a fielder’s choice y2 met against a position player changed over to pitcher during the game. All customary relievers were at that point spent in the Cardinals warm up area, and the main pitchers accessible were starters.

 

Cardinals mentor Tony La Russa chose not to get any of his beginning pitchers to proceed with the game; in this way, he chose accordingly to utilize position players to do the pitching. This choice ultimately cost him the game, considering the way that the Mets hitters couldn’t possibly hit a ball outside the Saint Louis infield.

 

The Mets Hitting Staff couldn’t score a run against Felipe Lopez, Cardinals third-base man who assumed control over the pitching obligations, briefly surrendering his third-base situation in the highest point of the eighteenth inning; this is the means by which terrifying the Mets players were.

At the point when the season began, each Mets fan was saying that the front office didn’t do a lot to make the pitching staff better. Without a doubt, Mets fans are right in their case on the grounds that the group truly didn’t sign any enormous name pitchers. They just added Minor League pitchers from their ranch framework in Jonathan Niese, Jenrry Mejia, and Fernando Nieve and acquired Raul Valdes from the Mexican League. The group additionally marked two Japanese pitchers (Ryota Igarashi and Hisanori Takahashi) who are right now in the warm up area alongside Mejia and Nieve while Niese is in the beginning revolution at the number five spot.

 

With these doubtful pitchers on the staff, Mets fans had valid justification to accept that pitching would be the ruin of the New York Mets group. Be that as it may, no, this is so distant from reality, the pitching staff is refuting everyone.
