ESPN.com’s Jerry Crasnick tweets that the Washington Nationals and Mets former starter Mike Pelfrey might be a good fit. Wow, talk about a weird turn of events. The Nats are in the market for starting pitching since they have let John Lannan and Edwin Jackson both walk. They have been linked to starters Zack Greinke and James Shields over the past week.
If Pelfrey landed with the Nats he would likely help fill out the back end of their rotation. I’m happy Pelfrey is no longer taking up a spot in the Mets rotation, but is it any better if he lands in NL East and torments the Mets and their fans all season long?
I wish Pelfrey the best, just not if he lands in the NL East.
