As if there wasn't enough to be worried about as a Mets fan, Pelfrey got roughed up in his final outing today. By the Devil Rays and that potent AL lineup...it really makes you wonder if Omar should have been so short with the leash on Chan Ho Park and Aaron Sele. What I wouldn't pay to see an experienced veteran in that fifth starter spot. Oh well, we'll just have to hope they can pull off more victories than the Nationals.
At the very least you figure Pelfrey could have "lost the handle" on one and hit Kazmir in the head...in the dugout...I'm not bitter, I'm just eating a a microwavable dinner seasoned with tears over the memories of the havoc that ensued from giving Jim Duquette complete and total autonomy.
I couldn't think of a better time for the season to begin.
- Metstradamus runs down the chances for a repeat of 2006.
- Ricky Ledee wants Da Edge, Mr. Passover, and anyone else in the Mets OF to know that their jobs are no longer safe.
- The boys over at HotFoot are pretty sure that Steve Phillips is just as bad at picking division winners on BBTN as he was at actually running a major league franchise.
- Lastings grabbed the last(ings) roster spot.
