Mets bullpen needs to take the leap the optimists believe they can

The 2019 baseball season started off hopeful for the New York Mets just like most. They then proceeded to fall farther and farther under .500 until they had a 38-47 record by the end of June. If you watched even a few of those painful losses you know just as well as any Met fan what the issue was.

Most games started off pretty strong as our starting rotation was pretty solid. Yet once a relief pitcher was put in, everything seemed to unravel as opposing teams raked in countless runs.

It’s easy to put all the blame on Edwin Diaz who was struggling a great amount last season but it isn’t as simple as that.
