    Greg Burke Bull Pen Arm

    Greg Burke is a little known bull pen arm who had a brilliant 2011 season in the minors for Orioles last year. He spent the 2012 season between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk in the Orioles' system, combining to go 3-1 with a 1.53 ERA in 44 games out of the bullpen. This year he is also having a solid minors season this year...Here is a link to an article about him:

    He wont get an invite because he is on the 40 man roster already. He will be there and likely make the team.

    He did have serviceable numbers in his lone big league action in 2009 4.14 era in 48 appearances, with a 1.55 WHIP. Nothing spectacular but maybe fill a hole we have in the bullpen for cheap.

    Every hole the Mets are filling is with a guy that is cheap.

    He throws from a low side/submarine arm slot now so his past numbers don't mean much. Based on his numbers he might be a valuable cheap asset.

    Yeah I did read that, sort of a Dickey type story changing his throwing style late in his career, except he is a bullpen arm instead of a starting pitcher.

    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    We weren't competing in 2013 anyway. can't wait to see how high a draft pick we get next yr. Let's hope for number 1. Might as well keep up the rebuilding by netting a #1 pick. Gonna be a long season.
