Because he can fight back. Not with his 6ft 7in frame and strength, but with his words. Mikey P. confronted Tom Verducci about being at risk of injury after such an increase in innings. It really is a nice piece by Tom Verducci. He is also really good on MLB Network. The piece is basically a back and forth between Verducci and Mikey P. before Verducci discusses other players that could be at risk. Jon Niese is also on the list, as well as Cole "Choke Artist" Hamels, Tim Lincecum, Jon Lester, and others. But anyways, Mike Pelfrey obviously knew what he was talking about.
Tonight we'll see (well, at least you will, I might not) if Mikey P. can defy Tom Verducci when he pitches against Edinson Volquez and the Reds.
Let's Go Mets!
Apparently the first hour of the Mets game on Saturday will be restricted from television. It's because Fox has exclusive TV rights from 4-7 PM and the Mets game starts at 6. The Marlins scheduled the game early because they want time for the Flo Rida concert after the game. Ay yi yi. You spin my head right round right round.
