Mike Pelfrey gets the ball tonight. Shelled in April, he will try to prevent the Mets from having their lead sliced to a half-game.
Based on what they are saying now, I wonder if the Mets used him properly this month. Both Omar Minaya and Willie Randolph said there’s not enough time to experiment with Pelfrey in the pen.
Given that, once the Mets failed to make a waiver deal to get bullpen help they should have brought up Pelfrey at the start of the month to test him in that role.
Afterall, it’s not as if it is a surprise the bullpen has been poor.
