Jeffrey and Rob discuss the 2013 Mets bullpen. Well, first they discuss who’s actually going to be in the 2013 Mets bullpen. Does Bobby Parnell have the closer mentality? (we know he has the closer facial hair) Who will be the second lefty out of the pen? And what arms down on the farm could contribute to the Mets relief corps sooner rather than later? Then Eno Sarris joins the podcast and talks about the changing relationship between fans and the media and why there is so much negativity in Mets camp right now. And hey look, we kept it under two hours this time!
