Rest easy, Mets fans. It appears David Wright has finally paid his electric bill as his power has been turned back on. Wright had his best offensive game of the season, collecting two home runs (his first multi-homer game since September 14, 2008 against the Braves) and tying his career-high with six RBI. His second home run of the game, a two-out two-run blast off Ryan Madson in the ninth inning, led to a thrilling [...]
It was the Murph and Pelf Show at Citi Field on Sunday as Daniel Murphy provided the offense and Mike Pelfrey gave the Mets (and himself) a much-needed strong pitching performance. The one-two punch lifted the Mets to a 4-2 victory over the Cubs and gave them their first series victory in five weeks. The game started out with Mike Pelfrey and Cubs’ pitcher Randy Wells trading quick innings and economizing their pitch counts. It [...]
As the Mets fell to the Rockies 8-3 last night, you couldn’t help but wonder about the makeup of Mike Pelfrey who continues to make the case that he may never be a number two or three pitcher. As Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez pointed out last night, Pelfrey is woefully short on guts and smarts when he’s on the mound. Pelfrey lasted just four innings, and allowed seven runs on six hits and five walks. The [...]
The Mets lost to the Florida Marlins Wednesday night by a score of 5-3. Mike Pelfrey took the loss going 5.2 innings giving up 5 runs on 11 hits. Josh Johnson got the win for the Fish going 6 innings and giving up 3 runs on 9 hits. Pelfrey has always had trouble with the Marlins in his career and tonight he continued to have difficulties. I am in the camp that believes Pelfrey threw [...]
I recently wrote an article about the reasons why Derek Lowe would not have been a wise investment, paired with why Oliver Perez was the best possible option if the Mets wanted to sign a free agent. It doesn’t mean Perez was a good signing, it means Lowe for 60 mil/4 years would have been a WORSE signing. Perez’s contract simply was the lesser of two evils. Unless somebody can give me a reasonable argument [...]
The Mets played a heck of game and beat the Phillies 4-2 in the first of a four game series with the Phillies. I usually save me comments for the end of the recap, but I gotta tell you how impressed I was with the intensity of the Mets given their dismal situation. They played the game with a heart and soul that I’ve been longing for all season long. Jeff Francoeur commented after the [...]
When Omar Minaya decided that Mike Pelfrey would slide into the number two spot in the rotation, many of us had raised eyebrows to say the least. Even though I would have rather seen Pelfrey hold down the fort at the bottom of the rotation I figured that maybe there was a slim chance that Pelf could pull it off. I based that decision on how strongly Pelfrey pitched down the stretch in 2008, His [...]
On the day after David Wright was sent to the hospital with a concussion after experiencing a close encounter with a Matt Cain fastball, the Mets were able to give him a wonderful get-well present by defeating the Giants in walk-off style at sunny and hot Citi Field. Daniel Murphy lined an RBI single with one out in the ninth inning that barely scored Jeff Francoeur from second base ahead of the strong and accurate [...]
This morning I will concede on a bet I made on Opening Day and pay up the $25 bucks I’ve lost. I bet my friend, a notorious Yankee fan, on who would have the better season… Our number two pitcher Mike Pelfrey or the Yankees number five pitcher Joba Chamberlain. The battle wasn’t even close. I figured there would be no way I could lose, especially when ERA and Batting Average Against were two quarters of [...]
