Pelfrey is angry at himself, Lennon says, and as the big right-hander gets ready to begin his fifth season as as a full-time starter for the Mets, Pelfrey knows all to well that unless he rediscovers that sink in his fastball, this could be his last season in Flushing. His 2011 season was a huge letdown for […]

This, from Adam Rubin: Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson was asked whether the current Nationals team, with young stars such as Stephen Strasburg, reminds him of the 1983-84 Mets, who were a couple of years away from winning a World Series. “This club has more potential than that club,” Johnson replied Monday at Nationals camp in Viera. “It just has a lot more gifted athletes.
