Here is a quick breakdown of the 2014 version of my White Whale, the New York Mets. Each player can adequately be summed up in 10 words or less.
Bartolo Colon- Box shaped gremlin that gets outs. Everyone loves this guy.
Jeurys Familia- Future closer? Future starter? Out of baseball in three years?
Dillon Gee- Guts like Rick Reed. Solid facial hair.
Gonzalez Germen- Cool name, that’s about it.
John Lannan- Bullpen punching bag, on waivers by July.
Jenrry Mejia- Really good until he gets hurt.
Bobby Parnell- Average closer. Now injured closer.
Scott Rice- Lefty-specialist that will inevitably disappoint. I miss Darren Oliver.
Carlos Torres- The next Pat Maholmes?
Jose Valverde- Fire Marshall Bill out of the bullpen. Certifiably insane.
Zack Wheeler- Our best healthy pitcher. Stud. Harvey, Wheeler, Syndergard. Boner alert.
Travis d’Arnaud- Soft like the 2nd “d” in d’Arnaud.
Anthony Recker- Meh backup behind injury-prone starter. Will play a lot. Ughhhh.
Ike Davis- Will become an All-Star somewhere else.
Lucas Duda- Will remain average in New York.
Daniel Murphy- Hitter, overachiever, hard worker, never seems to be enough.
Omar Quintanilla- The Big 0 (That’s a zero).
Josh Satin- Our best first baseman? Maybe…
Ruben Tejada- I believe, but organization seemingly doesn’t. F the Drew family.
David Wright- ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
Andrew Brown- Great baseball name, average baesball player.
Curtis Granderson- Not Jason Bay, I swear! True leader.
Juan Lagares- 2014-2024 Gold Glove Winner
Chris Young- K, HR, K, DL.
Eric Young- High SB, Low OBP. Please don’t start him over Lagares.Follow @TheClemReport
