FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING CLOSER NEWS: JEURYS FAMILIA WILL REMAIN METS CLOSER



Despite the addition of Oakland A's closer Tyler Clippard late Monday, the New York Mets have no plans to remove Jeurys Familia from the ninth inning despite two straight blown saves.  Clippard will instead pitch the eighth inning for the Mets, with Jenrry Mejia and Bobby Parnell manning the spots before them.

Analysis:  This move had to be done because the Mets need setup help, especially after seeing Parnell melt down the other day and for the fact Mejia can't pitch in the postseason if the Mets gets there due to his PED bust.  The arrangement remains with Familia closing but don't think for a second the Mets won't make a change is his struggles continue.  At the very least, all Familia owners should pick up Clippard if anyone dropped him after the trade.
