Seriously, we need to call up one of our actual prospects and just cut him already.

Like Ramp said... there is nobody other than Gaby. But Gaby is struggling.

If Wessy O gets sent down to AAA or the pen we will have to find someone to fill his spot in the rotation. We have 12 games in 11 days until we have an off day (Double header on the 5th). So I don't know what we will do.

Vanden Hurk is doing well in double A right now, and I love his stuff, but I think he needs to just develop in Double A for the rest of the year. I mean, the guy has never had a full season of development in the minors.

He will be a fixture in this rotation for years to come, I don't want to rush him anymore then we already have.

I'm not sure about that. He's already getting old compared to our other prospects.

Yea and he just turned 22 four days ago. I can't believe somebody just called Vanden Hurk old.

You can't fault him for one start, he had been decent in every appearence before this. He's facing the best offense in the NL and had an off-night. He's currently our #5 guy with 3 starters injured...you shouldn't expect something amazing out of him.

None of our pitchers in AA are ready to start now. The only starting pitcher even doing remotely well in AAA is Paul Mildren (4.36 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, .226 BAA) who has almost as many walks as he does strikeouts. The only other pitcher you could start in our bullpen, is our closer.

Sad to say....but with all the injuries we may have no choice but to give another start to a horrible looking Obermuller. One can only hope and pray that he has 1 somewhat MLB looking start in his near future. Not a terribly encouraging situation. Let's hope JJ is back in the next 2-3 weeks.

Fredi Gonzalez needs to take some of the blame Obermueller should have yanked before he gave up the bomb to delgado

To be fair, Obermueller was facing the best offense in the league. The Mets have put a lot of runs on better pitchers than Wes this year.

Dontrelle, JJ, Sanchez, Olsen, Nolasco.

When ony two of those guys are healthy, this sh*t happens. I realize the frustration that Freddi seems enamored with him, but whatever...I think most of us have realized he just doesn't make a whole lot of sense most of the time.

As for the notion of calling up a prospect...who?

Gaby and Volstad are both struggling. Garcia and West are hurt and Petit's in Arizona.

Off night for Obermueller, he's definetly not a guy who should be expected to do good though. I was hoping decent but Delgado rocked him. I agree with Irish that he should have been yanked before Delgado hit his 2nd bomb.

Give me a break. After the team wastes quality start after quality start from Mitre, I'm certainly not going to put too much of our problems on Obermueller. Giving up 7 runs is horrible, I know. But what about our offense scoring what? 2 runs a game the last 2 nights? If you feel like you need to pitch a shutout to win and your not that good, I don't think great things are to be expected. Maybe he would've still blown it if he had some run support, but I think any pitcher would be less inclined to just fold that way when they are not up against a wall like that.

One bad start and you're ready to kill him? We have no other real options so far, and Obermueller has only had real bad start.
