The Mets are going through a tough stretch right now, mostly because of their starting pitching(no Met starter has a win in May).  However, the bullpen has been surprisingly good, making my new statistic reliever rating all the more fun to calculate each day. 

So far the ranking for relievers goes like this

Takahashi- .6704








Now of course you can not take too much from such a small sample size.  What I mean by that is that most of the guys who are in the negative are there because of one disastrous outing.  For example, Fernando Nieve has been pretty good for the most part; however, on May 4 against the Reds he entered in the 8th inning in a 2-run game and gave up 2 runs and failed to get out of the inning.  Giving him a rating of -10.092 for the game. 

Lets see how the rest of the month plays out.
