As the calendar changes from May to June, the Mets find themselves a half game behind the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League East. They have managed to stay at or near the top of the division despite the fact that the Mets have become the walking wounded. In 2006, it was the month of June that propelled the Mets into the runaway train that dominated the division. The Mets must find a way to […]
As April came to a close, I was very alarmed at the state of our starting pitching. Aside from Johan Santana, everyone had an ERA over 5.00 and questions lingered about the makeup of the rotation. John Maine had an ERA of 5.40, Mike Pelfrey was at 6.32, Livan Hernandez was at risk of losing his job with a 6.75 ERA, and Oliver Perez was yanked from the rotation with a 9.97 ERA. There were concerns about […]
The Mets play game two of this inter-league series against the Boston Red Sox. Mets took game one despite the lack of defense behind Santana. “He’s making his pitches, and he’s executing his pitches, but we’re not executing on our end defensively,” manager Jerry Manuel said. “And to some degree, that has to be frustrating. But he battled.” “I don’t know at this point,” Jerry said. “I don’t know if I have choices.” Concerning Ramon Martinez […]
Okay, I’ll admit that even though I live in the central time zone, I’m not staying up until midnight or later to watch our Mets. And I’m certainly not going to watch as they are on the big drop portion of the roller coaster ride that is the 2009 season.
So for those who saw the final game of the series against the Giants, you clearly saw Mike Pelfrey looking uncomfortable on the mound. And I literately mean on the mound. The current record for most balks in the game is 5, set by Bobby Shaw in 1963. Mike Pelfrey gave up 3 in his start. This not only ties a Mets record for most balks in a game, but also is tied for the second […]
Wow, what a finish! The Mets just won a heck of game thanks to some clutch hits, clutch baserunning, and the biggest play of the game… a clutch walk! That’s right, a walk-of walk!!! Carlos Beltran was at the center of all the action, and Mike Pelfrey pitched a hell of a game holding Atlanta to just 2 runs in 7 innings. Frankie Rodriguez also came through with two solid innings in the 9th and […]
Mike Pelfrey pitched a heck of a game yesterday as he helped to extend the Mets winning streak to four games after a 7-5 clubbing of the Phillies. Pelfrey pitched seven solid innings, but failed to notch one strikeout. It was his second straight game without a whiff. So far this season, Pelfrey has struck out just six batters in 28 innings. He has now gone 76 batters without a strikeout which caused David Wright to playfully […]
Game Summary Mike Pelfrey gave the Mets another solid performance as the Mets topped the Phillies 7-5. The Mets broke out of their prolonged power slump at Citi Field and slugged three homeruns off starter Jaimie Moyer who once again failed to notch his 250th win. K-Rod notched his 9th save in nine opportunities and the Mets go over .500 (14-13)for the first time since week two. Mets Pitching Mike Pelfrey kept the Phillies in […]
Game Summary The Mets (10-12) beat the Philadelphia Phillies (11-10) 7-4 in the first game of a make or break series for the Mets. Mike Pelfrey wasn’t spectacular, but pitched well enough to get the Mets back on track and pick up the win. The Mets bats came alive in this one scoring early and often. Mets Pitching Mike Pelfrey improved his record to 3-0, holding the Phillies to just three runs on seven hits. He walked four batters in 5.1 innings and […]
