Logan Verrett makes Padres look like the '27 Yankees
In a game where the Mets needed to make a statement on their quickly deteriorating season, Logan Verrett pitched like he was throwing in an intra-squad game in March. In just 2 2/3 innings, Verrett gave up six hits, eight earned runs, three walks and four home runs to the Padres. Verrett's ERA rose to 5.36 on the season and the Mets fell to the Padres 8-6.
The Mets will reportedly remove Verrett from the starting rotation and replace him with Jonathon Niese. That's like removing a broken light bulb from a light fixture and replacing it with a sponge. Verrett holds no fantasy value and should be ignored in all formats.
