No help left for the pen...

After dropping two to the Cubs, in which most of the fault fell upon the bullpen for not holding the small leads that the offense was able to muster.   I asked Mike Harrington, beat writer for the Bison's if there was anyone over looked for a promotion who could have contributed.

I've heard several fans, including myself wonder if Justin Hampson or John Lujan could be those extra arms in the pen.  Harrington seemed to think Dale Thayer was the last of the contributors left in the minors.

Since those tweets the Mets have been swept by the Nationals in which the pen has continued to struggle, it looks like Collins and Warthen will have to just figure it out with what they have...
