The Mets brought up 2 new relievers yesterday Elmer Dessens and Pat Misch to help the tired bullpen. Dessens has been used as a closer down in Buffalo. That job for the time being might belong to Eddie Kunz. The 38 year old Dessens, who has a careeer 48-62 record and a 4.56 ERA has played for 8 major league teams, had 11 saves with a 2.31 ERA with the Bisons. He has struck out 28 in 35 innings and has walked 9. I look forward to seeing him pitch in flushing hopefully sometime this week.
Pat Misch, who was released from the Giants Earlier this year after posting a 10.80 ERA was brought up to assist left Pedro Feliciano . The 27 year old lefty was not too effective for Buffalo posting a 6.14 ERA over 7 innings. He struck out 6 and walked 2.
