Right he is a stud reliever, and he was the best reliever in baseball the second half. I'd rather have the Lugo in the BP version than say the Lugo as a #3 starter. Why mess with success.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, the Mets will have the best BP in the NL, and possibly in MLB.
    You can't make Lugo the closer because he cant pitch on back to back days. Those situations happen for closers all the time. I agree the bullpen needs the depth though. That's just how it is in this day and age where most SP are going 5 innings. Because more successful innings means more value. I get the prevailing opinion is to leave him in the pen though. He's their most clutch RP and its hard to replace that.

    I just dont really want him opening games. If he's going to start, let him start.

    The dude simply knows how to pitch. He was solid as a starter when he got the chance in 2018, but it was a SSS. The idea that his fastball doesn’t work as a starter is wrong too. He throws 1 MPH harder from the pen, but that’s not a huge difference.

    I think Lugo’s floor as a starter would be a #3. With how he dominates in the pen over multiple innings, I think he has higher potential than a #3 as a starter. If the rotation is struggling or getting injured while the pen is strong, I would move Lugo to the rotation.
    I see that the people under 60 seem to agree a lot around here

    Very impressed with Cordell. He deserves a shot to make the roster.

    With Diaz it feels like every at bat will either be a K or a hit. Is he capable of allowing contact and still getting outs.

    Feb. 26 but still, the guy looks very hittable. It's almost as if the Astros knew what pitches he was throwing.

    Hard to see another OF taking lowrie’s spot with the logjam there. Seems like guillormes to lose unless Cordell can play the IF? I’m not very familiar with him.

    How do you know Lugo can't pitch back to back days? Because somebody told you that. First off, let me ask you how many times in the last 3 years has Lugo pitched back to back. The answer is twice. Second, I took a look at Chapman and Hader's game log for 2019. Chapman pitched back to back one game, Hader had no days when he pitched back to back. So it doesn't appear to me to be an issue unless you have little or no depth in the BP, which is not the case now for the Mets.

    I also said the Mets really have two closers.

    Mets had that with McDowell and Orosco. Worked out well for them. Yet Orosco was left handed so that probably was another reason.

    In 84 they dominated in the first half before batters realized Doug Sisk's sinker was never a strike. Until then, they kept striking out or hitting into double plays. After they stopped swinging, he couldn't get anyone out, ever again. But he was good while it lasted.

    You have no idea. You had to live through the Doug Sisk era to believe it. The man made Familia look like Mariano Rivera.
