Alex Gordon

I really couldn't think of anything to call this post and I am watching the Royals play the Yankees so that was the first thing that popped into my head.

Mike Pelfrey was dominant last night and he showed people that he can put previous starts behind him by bouncing back from his rough outing against the Marlins. I was getting really frustrated by people that were saying Mike was going back to who he was last year. If they would realize that Mike has been OWNED by the Marlins they would know why 2 of his recent starts have been tough. But last night he proved that he is the new and improved Mikey P.

It would have been nice if the Mets had more offense than 3 consecutive hits in the first inning. That was enough for Mike and the bullpen but most of the time it won't be. The Mets seem to look like they will beat up a pitcher in the first inning and get him out of the game early and then they let him get comfortable and can't hit him for the rest of the game. The Mets haven't proved they can beat up young inexperinced pitchers. But the bullpen stepped up, besides a homer surrendered by Duaner Sanchez, and Aaron Heilman held a 1 run lead in the ninth.

Nice win last night and tonight it is Pedro's turn to show what he's got.

Let's Go Mets!
