Jerry Manuel announced he is moving Robert Allen Parnell to the starting rotation and he will take the start emptied by Michael Alan Pelfrey's absence on Saturday. Mike will be moved to Monday's start against the D-backs.
This is going to be quite interesting to see Bobby's transition in the regular season. It is similar to what the Indians are doing to Justin Masterson. I just don't see this as a good idea. I know Bobby has previously been a starter but he only has 2 pitches and has been one of the only trusted members of the bullpen. The Mets will keep his pitch count between 60-75 pitches on Saturday. This move seems screwy to me at this point. I am kinda scared and kinda excited to see how this will pan out.
There goes his 1.000 batting average.
Let's Go Mets!
