Mike Pelfrey Must Find His Way In 2012

The man on everyone's last nerve, Mike Pelfrey, is the Mets infamous underachiever.  Once a well though of prospect with ace level potential, Pelfrey has never been able to to figure himself out for any extended length of time.  I say himself because he has the stuff to be a very good pitcher in this league.  In fact, at one point Pelfrey may have had the stuff necessary to...

On The Road With Petey Pete: The Binghamton Mets

In the words of Mark Twain, “The coldest winter I ever saw was the summer I spent in San Francisco.” An excellent thought but obviously Mr. Twain never saw a baseball game at NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton, NY on a Friday night at the beginning of April. Wow, it really gives new meaning to the phrase “chilled to the bone” I can tell you that much. I had arrived in Binghamton...

2012 Fantasy Baseball Daily Fix: Yoenis Cespedes strikes again, Lucas Duda blasts two

Lucas Duda Bubbles pop, as home runs fly and blown saves continue.  Opening day has been a little crazy so far, well, with 4 different opening days around the league things seemed to be a bit hectic. The first couple of “opening days” saw the 2011 “The Year of the Pitcher” overflow into 2012. However it wasn’t until yesterday when the hitters decided to join the party...

Game Recap: Mets 4, Nationals 3

The New York Mets defeated the Washington Nationals by the score of 4-3 tonight. The Mets have now won the first four games of the season, and find themselves on top of the NL East with a record of 4-0. The Mets also have the best overall record in the MLB. Mike Pelfrey really impressed me tonight. He wasn’t dominant, nor was he ever in a rhythm. Pelfrey always has trouble pitching...
