Let’s face it, they weren’t going to beat Tim Hudson tonight. He stuffed them tonight. As far as Mike Pelfrey, well, he had nothing. I can’t disagree with starting him tonight. If he’s in your rotation, you can’t be afraid to start him against anybody.
Back to Hudson. I didn’t expect they’d hit him like they hit the Marlins, but I thought they’d do better. He’s still a premier pitcher and one shouldn’t be surprised to see him deal like he did tonight.
