The Mets completed a great road trip today, falling to the Tigers 5 – 2. While taking 4 of 6 from the mighty Rangers and Tigers was a tremendous accomplishment, today’s loss did not sit well with Mets Blob. The Mets had great at bats against Justin Verlander, stroking 10 hits, making the
flamethrower work hard for the victory. Unfortunately, Mike Pelfrey had no interest in competing; looking dazed and confused over 4.2 brutal innings. Pelfrey threw 109 pitches, giving up 5 runs on 8 hits and 5 walks. The New York Mets have been playing inspired baseball and the team deserves better than Mike Pelfrey. Detroit
Every Mets starting pitcher - except the coddled “Big Pelf” - behaves like a professional on the mound. Dillon Gee, Jonathan Niese, R.A. Dickey and Chris Capuano may not win every game but they are all tough competitors who understand that Major League Baseball is no place for the timid. Mets Blob is tired of Mike Pelfrey’s antics.
However, Mets Blob knows top notch comedy when we see it – and Pelf’s Huntz Hall, tilted cap, routine is comic genius. Remember Mike; always leave ‘em laughing.
