As the Mets enter the 4 game set against the Rockies tonight with Mike Pelfrey on the mound the 2 starters the Mets were most concerned with going into the season are doing there jobs.
So far Chris Young has given up 2 runs in his 2 starts with a 1.46 ERA . He has kept his hit count down to 6 hits in 12.1 innings and is 1-0. He deserved a win last night but the bullpen took it away.
Chris Capuano also won his 1st start so the 4th and 5th starter are 2-0. The first 3 starters for the Mets are 1-3 and have given up 22 runs in 28+ innings.
Mets need to get some length out of Pelfrey who got rocked in his outing against the Phillies pitching only 2+ innings.
Mets brought up Izzy and Iggy after yesterday's game. They DFA Blaine Boyer who didnt even last the first home stand at Citi. He had 2 loses already and a ERA over 10.00. Igarashi had a save already in Buffalo while Jason Isinghausen was in Pt St Lucie. Mets will go with 13 pitchers and hamper Terry Collins on the bench with only 4 players since Lucas Duda was sent down. Once Bay returns they will go back to a 5 man bench.
Will Pelf be the Big Pelf of early last year tonight? Or will he continue to flounder?
