John Lannan 1

John Lannan has reported to Port St. Lucie

Mets LHP John Lannan has finally reported to Port St. Lucie, FL.

Lannan accepted a minor-league assignment rather than become a free agent on April 19. He took the time between then and now to attend to a family matter.

He had a 15.75 ERA in five relief appearances for the Mets this season.

He had been part of the fifth-starter competition in Spring Training, but later switched to pitching in relief for the first time in his career.

Lannan will initially pitch in the bullpen for Vegas, but could also find himself moved back to the starting rotation (ESPN, Apr. 27).

Why? He sucks! Washed up, give me a frickin glove and I'll give you a 4.00 ERA just like the rest of them. Although my fastball is only 78 mph .

I like Lannan. He can be a very useful lefty, and I like having multiple lefties in the pen. With so much to legitimately complain about- the venom for Lannan is surreal.

Hold the presses! He's back!!! The season is saved.  A. Where the hell was he?  B. Why does this matter? C. With numbers like that we are probably looking at Sandy's next fifth starter. Reminds me of that great Steinbrenner line, "I just got you the pennant. We signed Steve Trout!"

@jenkins not sure how he showed that much value when he was up with the team myself but guess he can be useful.

@hundley99 If it's Lannan, it would be more like a shot in the head.

You must mean box wine. We all know the Wilpons can't afford champagne.
