Kudos to Mike Pelfrey who looked sharp in his last spring tune-up on the route to a walk-off victory for the Mets over the Skankees, 7-6. Summary Either I am going crazy or Mike Pelfrey has actually been pitching better since the last time I yelled at him in a recap. Much appreciated Big Pelf – I will be sure to keep you in line during the season. On a serious note, Pelfrey pitched 4 [...]
I saw it with my own four eyes – Wright hit a Grand Slam and Mike Pelfrey looked great in a 9-1 rout of the Houston Astros. Summary So let me knock the negativity out of the way to begin. It was the Astros and they looked completely outmatched. The Astros are a 100-loss team, It is Spring Training, Pelfrey still sucks, Wright is not clutch, Sandy Alderson is a nut job. Did I cover [...]
Chris Schwinden started and subsequently got rocked today in a 7-5 defeat to the Braves. Summary It was a tough day for Chris Schwinden today, who could not finish the third inning and allowed 4 ER in just two and a third innings pitched. He looked fairly outmatched and struggled to hit his spots. Schwinden started because the Mets did not want the Braves to get a good look at R.A. Dickey, who instead started [...]
R.A. Dickey took a no-hitter into the sixth inning today and looked to be in mid-season form as the Mets took care of business with the Astros, 8-2. Summary What else can be said about R.A. Dickey that has not already been said in the form of a compliment or a pun? He pitched into the 7th today, going 6 and a third innings and allowing only a single with three walks. He struck out [...]
Dillon Gee tossed 5.2 shutout innings today on route to a 2-0 shutout victory for the Mets Tuesday evening – their first ST victory since March 9th. Summary Dillon Gee looked pretty sharp out there tonight – He looked in control for basically the entire duration of his start. He pitched into the sixth, allowing only three hits and a walk while striking out four. Francisco took over after, and immediately walked a batter and [...]
Dickey took the mound and looked brilliant in 2 perfect innings, but a rain delay and an Adam Loewen error put the Mets on the track to a 3-1 loss. Summary R.A. Dickey started today opposite Marlins ace Josh Johnson where we caught our first glimpse of Jose playing against us. Dickey threw only 23 pitches (16 strikes) in 2 perfect innings – but was taken out due to a 1 hour rain delay in [...]
This afternoon, Pelfrey struggled again and gave up 4 ER off 2 HR in 4.1 IP, and sent the Mets on their way to a 7-1 defeat. Summary It was a tough day for Mike Pelfrey, who started opposite Adam Wainwright. It is early in spring training, but a line of 4 ER, 2 HR, and 6 H in only about 4 innings is not encouraging. I do not have a good feeling about Francisco, [...]
