Mets manager roasted for continuing to use Jerry Blevins

New York Mets

Jerry Blevins can’t seem to get anybody out this season, and the Internet is baffled as to why Mets manager Mickey Callaway continues to use him.

Blevins, the veteran reliever, pitched for his third consecutive day on Sunday, entering the Mets’ game against the Milwaukee Brewers with a 6-4 lead in the seventh inning. Alas, he wound up surrendering an RBI single to the only batter that he faced and was promptly yanked as the Mets went on to lose 8-6.

The loss was the Mets’ fifth in the last six games, and Callaway was promptly roasted on Twitter for going with Blevins when he could have just stuck with Robert Gsellman to finish out the inning instead.

Blevins’ 2018 campaign has not been pretty as he has now given up six earned runs in just 9.2 total innings pitched (for an ERA of 5.59). As for Callaway, the first-year manager, this isn’t the first time that he and the Mets have been ethered on social media for their bumbling ways this season.
