The Mets' Bullpen Doesn't Blow It

by Ben Lindbergh

This is exactly how the Mets drew up the top of the ninth inning on Sunday night:

Behold, the power of pitching to the scoreboard! With that five-run inning, the Mets' relief corps not only nailed down the victory, but passed the Brewers to claim baseball's highest bullpen ERA (5.02). Congratulations to Francisco, Miguel Batista, Manny Acosta, and the many other Mets relievers who made this moment possible.
