That's a "fire the manager" situation.  That's how stupid Callaway's explanation was.

New York Mets — Mickey Callaway found a new way to sound like a crazy person on Tuesday, explaining that he went to Robert Gsellman in garbage time to (a) save Jacob deGrom’s ERA somehow, and (b) ensure the team didn’t blow the lead. The Mets bullpen was without Jeurys Familia, who returned to the IL with a recurrent bone spur in his shoulder, but we’d expect even Robinson Cano could have earned two outs before the Braves scored eight.

Hierarchy remains: Diaz | Lugo | Gsellman.

Robert Arthur today at BP: 

Reliever performance has taken a major hit, and for the first time since 1973, relievers currently have a worse league-wide ERA than starters.

Hey, it's just one month, right?

Granted, it’s still very early in the season, and the difference between relievers and starters could reverse itself this summer. But the trend is certainly no single-month outlier: 2018 featured the lowest difference in starter-minus-reliever ERA since 1979. It also had the most blown saves since 2008.

Interesting. And maybe, in hindsight, something to be expected. If starting pitcher's are going to be taken out of games before they face hitters for the third time, much less for the fourth, someone has to face them. As long as there's a limit to how many someone's you can have in the bullpen -- 14 seems to be about the max -- relievers have to face more batters per outing than they used to.

I picked Gsellman at random to post this. Now I'm going to look at various pitching staffs to see how many relievers are getting fewer than three outs per appearance.

Whatever value he had went poof with the Mariners trade.
