Mike Pelfrey, who had an abysmal 07 season with the Mets, losing about 4 times the amount of games he had won, threw his 2nd consecutive complete game last night, giving up only 1 run. He’s gone 10-2 since the all star break, which is the best record since then in all of MLB. Yes, better than Sabathia’s 8-0 (who would be 14-5 counting his Indians record). This time next year, I think Pelfrey will have the first slot in the rotation, above Santana. Yes, above Santana. You wait and see.
He’s turned his season around but saying he’ll be there NO.1 starter is iffy he will be NO. 2 at worse 3.
As long as we don’t do something stupid like trade him, or overwork him, I think he would definitely have to two slot. Now, looking back at how much we payed for Santana, he should keep the one slot. It would be a great one-two punch to take 3 game series. Kinda like Sabbathia and Sheets.
I don’t really think it matters what the Mets do, they’ll still lose.
