O'Connor DFA

The Mets hoped Mike O'Connor's funky delivery would deceive left handed batters and he would be a LOOGY in the bullpen, much like Feliciano was when he was teamed up with Bradford in '06'.

He called up in early May and was effective in his first seven appearances, in which he did not allow a single run.  But in his last two appearances he allowed a run in each and couldn't record a single out. 

In AAA he struggled posting a 5.22 ERA and never got another shot at the majors, now he's a victim of the roster crunch...
