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...

Worst Case Scenario: Pelfrey To Have Tommy John Surgery

We’ve just been informed that Mike Pelfrey will undergo Tommy John Surgery on his right elbow, and miss the remainder of the season.

Terry Collins just announced in his post-game interview that Mike Pelfrey is going to have Tommy John surgery. This is terrible news. Mike Pelfrey has pitched very well this season. Unfortunately, Big Pelf will be out for the season. It’s not obscene to think that Big Pelf has thrown his last pitch as a New York Met. Pelfrey will visit Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham tomorrow....

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.

Mets place Bay and Pelfrey on disabled list

A day that was supposed center around Jose Reyes' return to Citi Field quickly assumed a familiar plotline from Reyes' days in New York.

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

3 Up & 3 Down: The San Francisco Treat Edition

The Mets just wound up a four game weekend wrap-around series with the San Francisco Giants, winning only one of the four games.

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.
