Meet Mets Interim Pitching Coach Phil Regan

By Jacob Yohe,

Regan played on the same pitching staff as Sandy Koufax where later he earned an all star bid in 1966 with the nickname Vulture, He finished with a 14-1 record that year. Regan was Kerry Wood’s first pitching coach and Bartolo Colon’s Second. He was the manager of the Baltimore Orioles when Cal Ripkin Jr. broke Lou Gehrig’s record for most consecutive games played.

Regan is beloved in the Mets organization but it was a head scratching move since he hasn’t been a big league pitching coach since 1999. He is reportedly in fantastic physical shape though for his age. Regan said “I try not to lie to them I try to come in and not change their whole delivery. I’m not a big believer in doing that or taking pitches away from them. But there’s a lot of little fundamental things that you have to do as a pitcher”.

Mets fans should not be worried about this guy what could be worse than the former guy if it doesn’t work out we move on simple as that.
