Familia’s Unique Grip Working Wonders

Whatever you want to call Jeurys Familia‘s new pitch, there is no denying that it works. A recent piece by Andy Martino of the Daily News detailed the backstory behind Familia’s new pitch and it might shed a little light on why it is coming in at such a high velocity. In the days since, […]

Armed With New Lethal Splitter, Familia Notches 35th Save

Gut Reaction: Mets 5, Red Sox 4 (8/30/15)

Our long national nightmare is over as the Mets broke a two-game losing streak with a 5-4 nail-biting win over the Red Sox Sunday afternoon. Jeurys Familia came on in the ninth with a one-run lead and promptly gave up two hits. But he earned his 35th save of the season, with two strikeouts bookending a fielder’s choice. Tyler Clippard played a big role, pitching out of a jam in...

New York Mets: Providing your daily heart attack since 1962

The New York Mets were up 5-1 heading into the ninth inning last night against the Baltimore Orioles. DeGrom pitched another gem and then had to rely on a shaky bullpen to finish the job. Tyler Clippard, after a solid eighth inning, puts two on base in the ninth and then Terry Collins brings in Jeurys Familia for what is now officially a save opportunity. It’s almost as if Terry...

Gut Reaction: Mets 3 Dodgers 2 (10) (7/26/15)

Jeurys Familia blew his second save in a week. The Mets didn’t hit all that much against Zack Grienke. In fact, they had no extra-base hit at all, technically. And they won, anyway. Juan Uribe blasted a ball off the wall in the bottom of the 10th, scoring Curtis Granderson, who had led off with a double. Uribe was credited with a single, but under any other circumstances, that...

Jeurys Familia faces uphill battle for Opening Day roster spot

The good news is that Jeurys Familia has not pitched in the first three exhibition games of the year and is therefore not among the nine pitchers in camp with an ERA of 9.00 or above. The bad news is, well, just about everything else. Familia has gone from hot-shot pitching prospect to potential future closer to staring at another season in the minors and being bypassed by others...
