On Jon Adkins

Jon Adkins, spent much of last season pitching surprisingly well for the Padres, but he faded late and finished with a 3.98 ERA in 54 1/3 innings. Jon doesn't really have a dominant second pitch to go along with his quality fastball. I think he will be the Mets new Royce Ring in that he will be bouncing back and forth between the majors and minors. He's a clear downgrade from Heath Bell, but getting him really wasn't the point of the deal now was it?
