Jerry Manuel invision K-Rod and Mejia 1-2-punch. Seeing these two pitchers with great stuff would be scary for the NL. Mejia is 0-1 with a 2.00 ERA, stirking out seven and walking three in nine innings. The Mets recalled Manny Acosta from Triple-A Buffalo to take Ryota Igarashi spot on the roster. Acosta pitch for the Braves last year. He was 0-1 with a 2.16 ERA in five games with the Bisons this season and gave up three runs in 1 1/3 innings last night. He seem like he a question mark right now. '[Fernando] Nieve and [Pedro] Feliciano will be guys that we'll use primarily in that paticular role," Jerry Manuel said of the eighth inning, not ruling out Mejia. Manuel see a winner in this kid. Jenrry Mejia is fearless like K-Rod. Just give him a opportunity.
