This season Pelfrey has been great there’s no denying that. This was an important season for the Mets and Mike Pelfrey after his disastrous 2009 season. This is the Mike Pelfrey we thought we would have last year after his 2008 season in which he won 13 games. In fact in 2008 the year that the bullpen killed the Mets you can argue that Pelf should have had at least 15 wins. The Mets expected […]
Most of you who read my words on here each week know that I have a healthy dose of skepticism and cynicism when it comes to these Mets. But while I’m not about to start sending “Ya gotta believe!” messages like one of my buddies does even when the Mets lose a bunch of games in a row, it’s hard not to believe there is something magical going on here. First of all, while we […]
As we bask in the glory of an ever so dramatic win last night, and take in the images of all that transpired during and after one of the best games of the season thus far, it feels so good to be a Mets fan. Watching how Mike Pelfrey has evolved this season has been nothing short of spectacular. Every time he takes the mound he not only throws with even more confidence, but his […]
Pelted only by the game’s second and third hitters, Mike Pelfrey threw perhaps his best game of the season. For the second time in a row, our number five man to start the season, looked Seaver-esque, almost always ahead of hitters in the count, he economized on his pitches magnificently and got batters to swing and put the ball in play—almost always as outs—very early in is counts. Pelfrey did not walk a single batter […]
In a great pitching performance by Mike Pelfrey, the Mets continued their home winning streak, defeating the punchless Padres in 11 innings. Game Notes Mike Pelfrey was outright dominant today, letting up 1 run on 5 hits with no walks and 6 strikeouts in NINE innings. Outside of the first inning, where Pelfrey gave up 2 hits – Mike was lights out. He was throwing gas into the late innings, and was pulled after the […]
After the horrible 18-6 bashing at the hands of the Padres yesterday, Mike Pelfrey went 8 innings to help guide the Mets to victory, 4-2 Game Notes Mike Pelfrey went to the mound today and had a plan from the beginning of the game, going 8 innings striking out 8 and walking 2, and giving up a run on 4 hits. All of Pelfrey’s pitches were working tonight as he was striking out lefties with […]
The National League has always been seen as more of the “cerebral” league in baseball, the one where managers have to think and not just throw out eight hitters plus an additional one each day but have strategy, one of which pitching is more valuable than hitting. Pitching has created several headlines this season, with one no-hitter and two, count ‘em, TWO perfect games (one in each league). And it’s only May! I’m sure like […]
Leave it to the Phillies to temper our expectations. Admittedly, I’m an avid fan of the Mets and Giants, so my hatred of the Phillies and Eagles and Philadelphia fans in general is bordering on unhealthy. But one thing is for sure….the Phillies are damn good, and they kind of woke up the Mets and us fans in a big way this past weekend. Riding an eight game winning streak, including a series opening thumping […]
The fact that one of tomorrow’s starters is 4-0 with a 0.69 ERA and it’s not Roy Halladay shows just how far Mike Pelfrey has come in the first month of the season. Pelfrey knows that he will face his toughest test of this young season when the Mets face Halladay and the Phillies in the second game of the series. “I think sometimes, when you go against guys that are great, I think […]
