Game: Lousy. A Chance To Spend An Afternoon With Your Fellow Bloggers: Priceless.

Game 117: Marlins 8 - Mets 2

I went to Shea for this game as part of a group of bloggers that were the guests of MetsBlog's Matt Cerrone. Zoë Rice has some pictures and a nice write up on her blog Pick Me Up Some Mets!.

Unfortunately, the game quickly proved to be a miserable dog, but the event itself was great. I always enjoy meeting my fellow bloggers, and this was quite an impressive group.

I've been having some recent health issues, and was feeling pretty run down even before I made the long journey into NYC for the game Sunday, which is my excuse for not getting to the blog for a couple of days. I hope to recover my energy at some point soon, but I'm still sucking wind a little.

I guess the big story of the game was Mike Pelfrey. As expected, he's starting to hit a little bit of a wall as his innings already approach last year's totals with over a month to go. They'll have to manage him, but it's also part of the learning process as Pelfrey makes the transition from prospect to established major league pitcher. It won't happen overnight, but it will happen.

About Mike: I was the original writer on this web site, actually its only writer for the first 15 months of existence. Although I am grateful for the excellent contributions of my fellow writers here, I have no plans of stepping back into strictly an editorial role. I started this thing in the first place because I love to write and I love the Mets, and blogging here keeps me somewhat sane. If you haven't had enough already, more bio info can be found here.
