Mets Pitching Report – January 2011

With just 6 weeks until Spring Training the Mets biggest worry will, by far, be their pitching staff. With the hope that the Mets can bring on one of the two free agents they are targeting, the pitching staff lines up as follows:

Mike Pelfrey, RA Dickey and Jon Niese, followed by either Chris Young** or Jeff Francis**, then Dillon Gee or Chris Capuano. (**this is assuming the Mets can obtain Young or Francis who are free agents).

In 2010, the Mets had question marks in their entire pitching rotation. The only person that could be counted on was Johan Santana. This year you can add Santana to the list of question marks for this pitching staff making the “ENTIRE” pitching staff a question mark.

Pelfrey, Dickey and Niese combined for 30 wins last year. Somehow this pitching staff will have to find another 45 wins to have a respectable season.

Here are last years stats of a very questionable 2010 pitching staff. I wonder where the Mets plan on getting those additional 45 wins?  Obviously Santana with his 11 wins and almost 200 innings will be missed. Players in grey are no longer with the Mets.

The staff as it’s currently lined up (** if they can sign either Young or Francis as free agents) should be fine when pitching at pitcher-friendly Citi Field. They’re going to get rocked in sandboxes like Philly and Wrigley.

Where do they find those other 45 wins? …
