News came down today that New York Mets manager Terry Collins will send Dillon Gee to bullpen and go back to the traditional rotation.

You know what they say, don’t you? They say all good things must come to an end eventually.
So, naturally, when the New York Mets announced they were going to a six-man rotation a couple weeks ago, we didn’t think about that sentiment whatsoever.
Nobody liked the six-man rotation. But alas, as now you can call it a thing of the past.
Today it was announced that Terry Collins notified Dillon Gee that he’d be heading to the bullpen, forming the more traditional five-man rotation with Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Bartolo Colon and Jonathan Niese.
Suffice to say, Gee isn’t too happy about the recent happenings surrounding him and his club.
Via Mets Blog:
“I feel like if I had any value before, it’s now gone,” a dejected Gee told reporters after receiving the news. “I almost don’t even care anymore, I’m done trying to figure this whole situation out.”
Collins even went so far as to apologize to Gee for having him start in an extra rehab game even though he’ll know not get an opportunity to start again for the Mets.
To be frank, it’s just that time.
It’s time to clear house even further. Make the call to Las Vegas and get lefty-phenom Steven Matz on the next flight to J.F.K.
Matz is currently sporting a sparkling 1.94 ERA to go along with 75 strikeouts in 74.1 innings.
For Niese, it might be only a matter of time.
