“The Mets can’t score on position players, but can score on the Cubs’ bullpen.” — http://twitter.com/kristaj19
The Cubs’ bullpen coughed up five runs in one inning last night in their first trip to the Mets’ new ballpark. And after another quality start from a Cubs’ starter, as six innings of one-run ball from Randy Wells were thrown away.
Half of Chicago’s relief pitchers have an ERA over 5.00; Samardzija has an ERA of 18.90. Why not let a few position players toss a few innings this week and see what happens? Marlon Byrd, I’m looking at you.
