Mets Drop Nieve, Gonna Call Up Acosta

According to Adam Rubin on, the Mets are trying to make their bullpen better by subtracting bad arms.  After last night's loss the Mets designated Fernando Nieve for assignment...And all I can say about that, is about time.

Although Nieve started the season pitching well, and being an integral part of the Mets bullpen, he's since been awful and with Ollie Perez around I guess the Mets decided they only need one mop-up guy.  Nieve was 2-4 with an ERA of 6.00 in 40 appearances.  That is awful...

Rubin reports that Nieve's spot in the 'pen will go to Manny Acosta, who should be up today.
