The Mets have finally done the right thing and brought up Nelson Figueroa. He will be pitching in tomorrow’s game against the Arizona D’backs.
This man should have been here months ago in place of Tim Redding. Pokey had no business being in the Mets rotation. Too many chances were granted to him.
Think of the wins the Mets would have had if Figueroa were here sooner. Then again, the offense would have needed to hit as well and we all know how that went.
The Mets made the call because Redding had pitched in relief on Saturday. Figueroa has been nothing short of fantastic in Triple-A going 7-1 in his last 10 starts. His ERA is 1.51.
