Kevin Kernan Can't Make Up His Mind On Mejia

Here's Kevin Kernan of the NY Post on March 19, regarding Jenrry Mejia:

Mejia should be at Citi Field come April 5. If he’s not, the Mets are wasting a golden arm and opportunity.

So here’s the million-dollar question: Is he ready for The Show? Yes he is, it’s Mejia Time.

Contrast with what he wrote today:

If I was in charge of the Mets, and I’m not, of course, and considering how well the bullpen is pitching, Mejia would be in Buffalo stretching out to be a starter. No questions asked.

So ten days of season and four innings of work by Mejia are enough to convince Kernan that it's no longer "Mejia Time". Kernan claims he isn't in charge of the Mets but it wouldn't be surprising if he is. They seem to share an affinity for small-sample-size player evaluation. Looks like Toby Hyde was right.

Of course, last night's result isn't the reason why Mejia shouldn't be in the major league bullpen. That argument has been outlined dozens of times over. However, the walk-off homer might be a blessing in disguise for swaying the chorus of people (the Mets brain trust, most importantly) who value middle relief innings for an 80-win team over development of a potential ace. It's just a shame it had to come at the expense of a Mets win.
