This is what I get for coming up with a wise-ass line like "Gee's next start may come Wednesday against Houston, which would be fine because there's nobody in that lineup you'd need to wish a flat tire upon." Well somebody forgot to cut Carlos Pena's tires, and Dillon Gee got smacked around for the second straight outing as the Mets beat the Astros 7-5. Gee apparently found himself in the final two innings of his four inning outing after some excellent analysis by his pitching coach: "Dan (Warthen) got on him about making better pitches and he did a much better job in the last inning." -Terry Collins Yup, the intricacies of being a major league pitching coach. Make better pitches. He gets paid for that, you know. Well let's hope Gee's last two innings are the norm and not the exception, because Shaun Marcum has an impinged shoulder. (Which is medical for "damn his shoulder is f***ed up." He got the J.J. Putz Special: the cortisone shot: "He said it is something he gets every spring. He wanted to get it cleaned up now." -Terry Yes. And then there will be absolutely no issues going forward, because cortisone cures everything. I don't want to make you panic, but today's starter against the Cardinals is Bruce Berenyi. Editor's note: I googled pictures of Bruce Berenyi for this very joke. And was sufficiently freaked out by the slight to moderate resemblance between Bruce Berenyi with a beard and Mike Pelfrey: I feel like I just got sent through the wormhole from Fringe.
