Then there is the bullpen issues. The Mets addressed this issue in the off season and I, like most Mets fans, thought it would be much improved. Well we have yet to see the improvement. I think that Jerry is still trying to figure this one out. He needs to get it done soon. I realize that with the WBC he did not get his full team for spring training but he has had the month of April and should have his lineups and bullpen figured out by now. All I can say is Jerry get it together.
Now as for May, the Mets start out in Philly and we all know what that means. I know the season is young but in my opinion the Mets can not afford to lose this series. It could be just the spark the team needs to start on a streak. The Mets send Mike Pelfrey out to the mound for the first of three. He is 2 and 0 so far but his ERA is above 6.So if he starts pitching like he did last year he could really start some thing here. Oliver Perez is scheduled for the saturday match up and who knows which OLLIE will show but this is a major concern. The Mets spent 36 million to resign this kid and so far have not gotten their moneys worth. On Sunday the MEts will throw John Maine out and he and Perez have pitched well against the Phillies so lets see some real Mets baseball. See you next week Mets fans.
First day of May and The Mets take the first of the series from the Phillies behind Mike Pelfrey and a strong outing by the bullpen with J.J. Putz and Fransico Rodriguez both pitching lights out. Great start to the months Mets fans.
