Found April 26, 2012 on Mets360.com:
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 gone” may take precedence here. While, of course, these two players have brutally underachieved and have been whipping boys for several Mets’ fans over the years, they might be missed more than people think. For the better part of their Met careers, Bay and Pelfrey have been maddeningly inconsistent, while never living up to their full potential or in Bay’s case, more particularly his contract. And that’s what irritates Mets’ fans so much. However, they were off to decent starts this season and you must view things in a vacuum. Although Pelfrey has not won a game this season, he has kept the team in games and ha...

Is This the End of Mike Pelfrey’s Tenure with the Mets?

As it is looking more and more like a certainty that Mike Pelfrey will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the rest of the 2012 season, it is time to wonder if the start that Pelfrey made on April 21 was the last time that we will see him in a New York Mets uniform. It seemed as if Pelfrey had figured things out through the early part of the year.  He looked good in his first three...

Mets put RHP Pelfrey, LF Bay on disabled list

The New York Mets have put starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey and left fielder Jason Bay on the 15-day disabled list. The Mets made the moves before Tuesday night's game against Miami. Pelfrey is sidelined with inflammation in his right elbow. But Mets general manager Sandy Alderson says the team hasn't ruled out a torn ligament, and says Pelfrey will get a second opinion. ...

MIAMI BAY

Jason Bay to 15 day DL. Jason Bay cracked a rib on his left side in last night's game 2 diving for a ball he couldn't keep in his glove. Jason looked banged up on the lack of play but smoked a single up the middle in his next AB. The swing was one of the best Mets Blob has ever seen Jason put on a ball. The Blob knows that's not saying much. Well, for those of us who...

Mets need Dillon Gee more than ever after Mike Pelfrey injury

After yesterday’s win over the Marlins, it was announced that Mike Pelfrey was likely to undergo elbow surgery and miss the remainder of the season. This is really bad news for the Mets, a statement I’d never thought I would say. The Pelfrey we saw in three starts this year was doing everything he needed to do to “cross the Rubicon,” as broadcaster Keith Hernandez would...

Mike Pelfrey’s Injury Hurt Himself As Well As The Mets

Mike Pelfrey is going to have the dreaded Tommy John Surgery. This surgery used to be the death sentence of pitchers years ago. Now it usually results in them returning in a year’s time, just as good as they were before, and sometimes even better. This injury could not have come at a worse time for Big Pelf or the Mets. It was becoming obvious that Pelfrey was not going to be here...

Mets' Pelfrey likely to have season-ending surgery

New York Mets right-handed pitcher Mike Pelfrey will almost certainly undergo season-ending Tommy John ligament-replacement surgery, the Mets announced Thursday after their 3-2 win over the Marlins. Pelfrey, who will fly to Alabama Friday to meet with Dr. James Andrews, estimated there is a "99 percent" chance he will undergo the procedure on his right elbow. It has...

GIFcap: Jason Bay Shot While Trying To Catch Ball + A Rangers Fan’s Epic Videobomb

The best part of any truly awesome defensive fail GIF is when the defensive player hits the ground like they just got shot by a sniper, and it’s only fitting that Jason Bay plays that role to perfection here, going down like a bag of bricks. Videobombing Rangers fan agrees

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...

Pelf to DL: This is just getting irritating now

Mets rally in 9th to beat slumping Marlins

NEW YORK -- The New York Mets showed off an ability to absorb bad news throughout their three-game sweep of the Miami Marlins, capped by a walk-off win Thursday. But that success on the field didn't keep the bad news from coming off of it, as Mike Pelfrey announced after the Mets' 3-2 win Thursday, he was "99 percent" certain he would have season-ending Tommy...

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. But then we find out that Mike Pelfrey (the other boo twin...
