Found April 24, 2012 on Mets Merized Online:
The Mets just wound up a four game weekend wrap-around series with the San Francisco Giants, winning only one of the four games. Sunday’s edition of Rain Out Theater, prompted a double-header on Monday night, with the Giants sweeping both games from the Mets. One would think with 36 plus innings of baseball played between these teams, 3 Ups would be easy, but the Mets were something awful, we had a tough time. 3 Up: Mike Pelfrey: Big Pelf pitched a gem on Saturday, too bad he didn’t figure into the decision. Pelf went 8 innings giving up one run. He was pulled in the ninth inning and the Mets blew the lead, but Pelf was golden this weekend, of that there is no doubt. Jon Niese: Jon got roughed up early in the series opener giving up three runs, but he hung tough and lasted six innings, giving up only those runs and nothing more.

As Jason Bay and Mike Pelfrey hit the DL, Mets’ fans say so what?

Just as soon as the Mets put Jason Bay (ribs) and Mike Pelfrey (elbow) on the disabled list, the Mets go ahead and win two straight games over the Miami Marlins while also ruining the Jose Reyes homecoming in the process. Everything is right in the world, correct? Not so fast. I’d like to think that the the old saying “You don’t know how much you miss something until it’s...

Mets continue to hurt, place Pelfrey on DL

Earlier today, the Mets placed left fielder Jason Bay on the 15-day DL. The hits keep on coming, as the team has also placed starter Mike Pelfrey on the DL with swelling in his right elbow. Pelfrey really hasn't lived up to the high expectations placed on him by the New York media after being drafted ninth overall in the 2005 draft. That, of course, was the loaded draft that...

MMO Mailbag: Have We Seen The Last Of Pelfrey?

Douglas Cook asks: Will Harvey or Wheeler be called up this year or do they need more minor league seasoning? We spoke to Wally Backman and asked him that question on Tuesday. He said that Harvey will certainly be with the Mets by September at the latest. I happen to think that if the Mets fall far out of it in the standings, and Harvey continues to pitch as he did on Wednesday...

The Mets first put Jason Bay on the DL with...

What the Loss of Pelfrey, Bay and Cedeno in 24 hours to the DL means

The Mets announced today that Jason Bay was going on the Disabled list with cracked rib.  This is a blow to the Mets lineup, especially with Bay showing signs of starting to produce with more regularity. In a surprising move the Mets also announced that starter Mike Pelfrey has also been placed on the DL. The Mets are saying that the move is due to elbow pain, but rumors are circulating...

The Enemy Looks Ridiculous

Well this just about brings it home, so to speak. Doesn't it? It promised to be an eventful day, but we just didn't know how eventful. We awoke to "Jose Reyes Day" with Jason Bay hitting the disabled list with a fractured rib which he accrued by flailing and missing a fly ball. This we sort of expected.
