Go Big Pelf! Mike threw his second game much like his first…terrific. Mike went 7 innings for his second win of the season(Mets team lead). Mike had all of his pitches going, especially his split which he is throwing with more confidence. Pelf threw 109 pitches today, 70 for strikes and had 6 punch out. Going into the 2010 season, the challenge made to Pelfrey was for him to assume the #2 role in the rotation. Naturally, this kind of challenge was meet with criticism…it appears Mike is more than ready to take it on. Congrats Pelf, well done!
No surprise here. Easily the Mets MVP so far this year, Jeff went 2-4 and accounted for a run. Jeff also made some great plays in the outfield. Jeff is pretty much a one man wrecking crew to start off the season, he is hitting .438 with a .514 OBP and slugging .929. Jeff wasÂ reported basically as the teams “comedic relief”, I guess this clown is laughing the hardest. Great job Jeff, keep it up…seriously
Luis Castillo had a good day at the plate. Luis went 2-5, accounting for 2 runs. Luie is hitting .250 on the year and can only get better. Luie did have a tough day on the bases, getting ran down on a botched double steal. Lets hope Castillo can continue getting it done at the plate and improve on the bases.
