Mets Used Pelfrey In Relief. How Do You Think This Game Went?

The Mets lost to the Padres, 6-1.

  • Jon Niese was not good. He went six innings, giving up three runs on ten hits, while striking out three. Niese was not helped by his defense. All three runs that Niese allowed to score were the result of poor fielding on the part of Scott Hairston and Angel Pagan.
  • The Mets only run of the game came in the fourth inning on a double to left field from Ruben Tejada.
  • Mike Pelfrey even entered the game in the eighth inning to pitch. In his brief appearance, he gave up a run on two hits, and wasn't even able to get out of the inning. Following the game, Pelfrey said, "I'm glad I got to go out there. It was fun. I had some adrenaline." At least one person was happy to see Pelfrey on the mound.

Next Up: The Mets send Dillon Gee to the mound for the series finale against the Padres tonight. Game time is 6:35 p.m.

  1. Beato and Pelfry -- 1 and a third, 3 earned runs? They just suck. I'd almost want Aaron Heilman over these putzes. This is pathetic. Ya wanna be blown away? Look at the ERA's of Mets pitchers and then check out the ERA's of Atlanta's relievers, O'Flaherty, Venters & Kimbrel. Here, I'll show ya -- 1.31, 1.16, 1.81. That's pitching. What we've got is a joke.

    20 games out of 1st. It's not like 1st was ever expected and games out of the wildcard spot is what mattered all along this year . . . but still. Looking at the Standings is sickening.

    Now just 2½ games away from sole possession of last place. Hope has surely been replaced with never-ending disgust.

    Lookin' forward to when pitchers and catchers report in February.
