Orlando Hernandez said he’s feeling better after offseason foot surgery and sees himself in the Mets’ rotation.
“I signed as a starting pitcher,” Hernandez said. “I no go to the bullpen.”
Of course, a lot can happen between now and the start of the season, but if Hernandez gets out of spring training healthy that would logically be the option. Anticipating the inevitable breakdown with Hernandez and maybe Pedro Martinez, one would figure Mike Pelfrey would get his fair share of starts.
Would you go with Hernandez and ease in Pelfrey, or would you go with Pelfrey from the start?
