Mets relievers WAR comparison

Today Terry Collins said it is not guranteed that Bobby Parnell will have a spot on the major league roster. While I like to believe that NOBODY is guranteed a spot and that everyone is earning it in PSL we all know that some guys are going up no matter what and Bobby should be one of those guys. Using fWAR to value our relievers, Parnell is our second best pitcher.

Player
fWAR
F. Francisco
0.5
R. Ramirez
0.9
Acosta
0.1
Byrdak
0.4
Beato
-0.3
Rauch
-0.6
Parnell
0.6

Likely closer Frank Frank came in a 1/2 a win above replacement and Parnell edged him out at .6 wins above replacement level. The team leader was former Giant Ramon Ramirez who came the closest to cracking 1. At the bottom of the barrel was Brooklyn native Pedro Beato and Jon "Too Tall" Rauch, both below replacement level and therefore should be replaced.

  1. With the Mets being unlikely to contend, I can see them rotating through a ton of pitchers in 2012. I would not be at all surprised if the order of the bull is very different at the end of the year.

    I like the blog. Keep with it. I'd lose the robot captha thing. It keeps people from commenting almost as much as it blocks spam.

  2. Jon I totally agree, this bullpen is wide open and I think everyone of those guys has an equal shot at that regular job.

    I didn't even know I had a captcha thing, I will try to turn it off.
