As the Subway Series came to a close, the Mets made some tough decisions that many will be surprised about. They are as follows:
John Maine to Revisit Docs; On His Way Out?: According to MetsBlog.com’s Matt Cerrone, John Maine will head back to New York on tuesday to visit with Mets team doctors, as his arm is still bothering him. Jerry Manuel said this about the visit. “They’ll probably come up with a plan of attack on that”. This could also mean that John Maine could be on his way out of the Mets organization FOR GOOD! There have been rumors and reports that the Mets are looking for trading partners, perhaps for another arm. Maine could be part of a deal, though his value is minimal at this point.
Jenrry Mejia Sent Down To Double-A Binghamton: Many of you probably saw this coming for the past month now, but Jenrry Mejia was sent down to Double-A Binghamton officially yesterday after the Subway Series finale. Mejia pitched a scoreless inning in relief as the Mets lost the finale 4-0. Apparently, Jenrry Mejia will be changing roles again and will become a starter. Hopefully, that goes well for Jenrry because he has a chance to be special.
Mejia’s Replacement? Bobby Parnell: SNY (SportsNet New York) confirms that the Mets will promote Bobby Parnell and put him into the bullpen to fill Jenrry Mejia’s spot in the bullpen.
