In this week's MetsBlog Q&A Cast, I talk with former Mets pitcher and current SNY pre- and post-game analyst Nelson Figueroa in hopes of answering the following questions...
1) Why are these very talented starting pitchers struggling?
2) What can Rene Rivera and Dan Warthen do to help them be better?
3) How much of a factor is the shaky defense impact each pitcher's performance?
4) Will a better bullpen help the rotation?
5) Is the rotation's success as simple as pitching inside?
