4-1 Start

 

I would like the Mets to sign Kimbrel to help the bullpen but I dont think that will happen.

It's what greed gets you. If Craig Kimbrel wanted to take a two or three year deal, he would have been signed before Christmas.

He and his agent decided to hold out for a 5 or 6 year deal.

For good reason, a lot of teams have reservations about giving a 31 year old reliever that many years.

So now he is where he is.  And even if/when somebody does sign him, he'll probably need a month or so to get ready.

I'm glad the Sox let him walk even with the bullpen looking iffy. Kimbrel was pretty shaky in 2016 and 2018 (especially the 2nd half) and the price tag is just way too much for a reliever.

I don't think it was the price tag, as in dollars.

Teams are willing to spend money.

It was the number of years that scared teams away.

Rotation is awful

 

Steven Matz is the most schizophrenic pitcher I have ever seen.

He can go out there and roll off 4 or 5 good starts in a row, then he'll go out and get absolutely drubbed.

Barring injuries the Mets rotation will be fine, if not very good.
