“Orlando Hernandez”:http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=6019 (7-4, 3.12) goes for the Mets today against Shawn Hill (3-3, 2.41).
I admit, as much as I like Hernandez, I was a skeptical when the Mets gave him two years. But, he’s been worth it. Worth every penny, actually.
Next to dominance, what you want more than anything from a pitcher is consistency and that’s what Duque has given the Mets. In his 20 starts he’s gone at least six full innings in 16 of them and given up three or fewer runs in 15.
