The Mets send a sort of sacrificial lamb to the mound when they wheel out Brian Stokes. Stokes was unimpressive last year for Tampa Bay where he pitched to a 7.07 ERA. He has allowed 121 hits in just 86 big-league innings as well as walking 34 hitters. That is just shy of two baserunners an inning. His AAA numbers this season aren't very impressive either with a 4.41 ERA. The Marlins will counter with Scott Olsen who has pitched to an ERA of just 3.87 on the season, allowing fewer hits than innings pitched. With a Mets’ bullpen that has been in shambles recently and expected to be needed early here, you have to like the value on the Marlins.
