Game 49: Marlins 7 - Mets 3
These games are starting to blur together, aren't they?
The Mets are losing games for so many of the same reasons, it's hard to tell these losses apart.
The Mets haven't won a game that Mike Pelfrey has started since mid-April. A couple of those starts -- May 10 against the Reds and May 15 vs. Washington -- showed some real promise, but the last two against the Braves and Marlins were a big step in the wrong direction:
|Mike Pelfrey (Last 5 Starts)|
|Season (9 Games)||49||31||29||63||23||24||4||5.33||1.78||2-7|
I honestly don't see any more how it serves the Mets or Mike Pelfrey to keep running him out there. If the choice were mine to make, I would send him down. Perhaps a different voice and a lot less limelight would help.
The offense... same old.
