Mets may nab Schoenweiss as a free agent; will he share the bullpen or are they looking to move one of their relievers, either in a trade or from the the 'pen to the rotation?

Or is it just an early season fill-in for Mota?

He is a solid reliever but I was about to come here and pose a question to Mets fans. How do they let Bradford walk at 3/$10.5M but sign Schoeneweis for 3/$10.8M??

Probably because one's a lefty and one isn't. Friggin' lefties. ;-7

I considered that even though they already have 2 lefty relievers. I don't see him as being a specialist-type, though.

I like the addition to our bullpen but he's too expensive and not worth a 3 year deal.

Yes, Alphabet II will definitely be a LH specialist for the Mets IMHO too. That's where he excels and the Mets have so many options in the bullpen it is hard to see them using him in a situation where he doesn't. He's definitely overpaid for the type of reliever that he is but the Mets needed one, the bullpen will again be a key to success and he's the type of pitcher that is pretty easy to move at the trade deadline.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Perhaps. Still a pretty dissapointing offseason in general, though. :-[

Hehe. I definitely don't think this makes for a great off-season or anything like that. But I do think that the bullpen (as a unit) will be awesome again and it looks like it needs to be. :-D
