Calling Tim Peterson “Eliterson” was sarcastic

The 2019 Mets sent 23 different relief pitchers to the mound over the course of the season, so you could be forgiven for forgetting a few of them. Some of them had distinguishing features: Daniel Zamora is the other lefty, Tyler Bashlor has a tattoo sleeve on his pitching arm (and is hot), Jacob Rhame looks like a background character in The Office, Chris Mazza wears stirrups, Walker Lockett starts sometimes, Brooks Pounders looks exactly like he should, etc.

And then there’s Tim Peterson, whose distinguishing feature may be that he was sarcastically dubbed Eliterson.
