Mets Blob is all for drilling the obnoxious, Bush League, Italian import but this was hardly the time. Terry Collins must have sprinted to the mound at this point, right? No, Terry wanted more proof that Mike Pelfrey wanted out of this game. Pelfrey obliged with a room service, first pitch, fastball to Derek Jeter. Jeter, of course, has made a career of jumping on fat, first pitch, fastballs from mentally frail pitchers. Mike Pelfrey has made a career of melting down in big spots. Derek Jeter is headed to the Hall of Fame. Mike Pelfrey is headed to the Brewers to pitch middle relief.
Ivan Nova did not have his best stuff today and the Mets failed to take advantage. The bases were packed with Mets all game but the Amazins’ only plated three runs. Jason Bay hit two, Felix Millan, ground ball singles. Sorry Jason, your act is wearing thin - Ivan Nova is not Roy Halladay. Mets Blob hopes you are not happy with your “please let me make contact and not get embarrassed” swings.
