Let's call it as we have seen it, it's been a loss start to the season for the New York Mets so far. They currently sit at 18-20 and have gone 3-7 in their last 10 games making them sit tied for third place in the NL East with the Phillies. It just has not been the start to the season the Mets and their fans have anticipated.

Many people have pointed out the injuries the team has gone through which is fair, but the pitching as a whole has not been as strong as we have thought it would be. The rotation is in shambles and the bullpen has not been helping out either. If this team wants to get back on track, there is one relief pitcher we need to see less of.

The Tommy Hunter experience with the Mets needs end

Tommy Hunter has been around in the major leagues for a long time but he just does not fit on this New York Mets team anymore. Hunter has pitched in just eight games this season and has already seen his ERA at six in just 15 innings pitched. The Mets bullpen has had to carry a bulk of the Mets pitching in games already this season with their starters inability to go deep into games and Hunter has not been a helpful cause.

You can blame it on the injuries that Hunter has been dealing with, but when Hunter seems healthy enough to pitch in big games for the Mets, he cannot come through giving up 16 hits and 10 earned runs in only 15 innings pitched. It will be interesting to see when or if the Mets will make any roster moves pitching wise, but if there is one move that needs to be done, Tommy Hunter should be the first New York Mets relief pitcher to go once they have any kind of upgrade available to them.
