The New York Mets had one of the worst bullpens in baseball last season, but some unexpected and frugal acquisitions by general manager Sandy Alderson have the relief corps on the right track.

Numerous low-risk, high-reward contracts are in place as the Mets hope to hit the lottery on guys like LaTroy Hawkins, Pedro Feliciano, Scott Atchison and Brandon Lyon this season (via CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman).
