Note: Josh Edgin has been a bright spot in the bullpen

In last night’s 4-0 loss to the Braves, Josh Edgin allowed a two run home run to Dan Uggla in the eighth inning.

Overall, Edgin is 1-0 with a 3.38 ERA, having allowed five runs and 11 hits with four walks and 21 strikeouts in 13 1/3 innings this season.

The opposition has hit .212 against him, and left-handed hitters have hit just .133 14 strikeouts in 30 at-bats.

Amidst all of the misery the Mets have endured over the last month or so, Edgin has been a real bright spot on the roster. He throws hard and has a ton of movement on his fastball, and his slider sweeps away from left-handed hitters making it extremely difficult to see out of the hand. The 21 strikeouts in 13 innings are glaring and he has the mound presence of a closer – he could be an answer in that regard in the long term, and a formidable eighth inning presence in the short term. Like Harvey, he’s still a work in progress and he needs to adjust better to right-handed hitters – they’ve hit .318 against him and he’s shown some vulnerability against them in a short sample. But in a bullpen in absolute disarray, Edgin is earning his way up the totem pole down there.

So tired already of the tv coverage. Same with NFL draft after the 1st round .. Just talking and yapping and cannot hear the picks etc..  So focused on Toronto (big audience i guess)..  Too bad about Hagelin...  had to dump him probably because a couple of other guys contracts are absurd.

Kovacs didn't play in the SHL, he played in the 2nd division and junior league.

Maybe we could have taken Bracco with our first and Gropp would have been there for 2nd?  I don't know but I like Bracco skill set, analysts saying he was one of the most skilled players in draft.

Really annoyed the Rangers didn't get Jeremy Bracco. LI kid who broke the USDL scoring record and was a lifelong Ranger fan. Instead he went the pick before to Toronto.
