General manager Omar Minaya said Wylie -- who is essentially a two-pitch pitcher with just a fastball and slider -- could be used as a starter or long reliever, but that it was more likely that he would pitch in short relief if he wins a place in the Mets' revamped bullpen.
DALLAS -- With their need for short relief greater than it was when the Winter Meetings began, the Mets selected 28-year-old right-hander Mitchell Wylie from the Giants' Triple-A Fresno affiliate in the first round of the Rule 5 Draft on Thursday.
He was originally selected in the eighth round of the 1998 First-Year Player Draft by the White Sox.

Through the 2005 season, National League teams have won 41 and lost 60 of the 101 World Series played, although the Nationals have a rather better percentage of 28 and 34 in Series where the New York Yankees were not involved.

The National League was formed in 1876 when six of the strongest teams of the National Association withdrew from that organization (effectively killing it) to form a new league with stronger executive authority.
