Cross Your Fingers, Stick Out Your Tongue, & Pray...
That management has some common sense and Pelfrey is the #5 starter come April. After another solid performance against the O's on Tuesday (5 IP 1 ER 0 BB 7 H) Pelfrey should have all but penciled his name in as Willie Randolph's fifth starter.
The most encouraging of all the numbers so far this spring for Pelfrey is his walk total. After being a bit wild in his stint in Flushing last season, Pelfrey has calmed down it seems, along with establishing his slider as a legitimate out pitch. With only 1 walk so far this spring, Pelfrey appears to be in command of the strike zone. As long as he stays around the plate, with his stuff, there shouldn't be any hesitation in naming the fifth starter.
