Mets Bullpen Planning To Take A Half Day On Wednesday

Dillon Gee has been pitching lights out for the Mets.  Not only is the team winning when he pitches but the bullpen usually is only needed at the very end of the game to tidy up and pick up a save.

We've learned that the members of the bullpen have informed manager Terry Collins that when Gee next starts, Wednesday night in Atlanta, they plan to show up a bit late to the ballpark.

Jason Isringhausen explained to the press corps: "We've been talking out there and decided to see a flick together.  We settled on "The Hangover Part II".  We checked the movie times and found that it's showing at the Greenbriar Mall  at 5:50pm.  The mall's maybe a 20 minute drive to the stadium. We figure that after the movie we can catch a couple of cabs and be there for the start of the 6th inning.  7th inning the latest."

The veteran reliever was asked whether this wasn't a bit irresponsible.  He assured the assembled that one reliever would be in the pen, "just in case".   That pitcher is Bobby Parnell.

Asked whether Parnell drew the short straw which will keep him from seeing the popular comedy Izzie said, "Nah.  Bobby saw the first Hangover movie and just didn't think it was all that funny."
