Tumultuous 24 for Big Pelf
It started with Pelfrey telling the Post he didn’t think the Mets were good enough to compete. The news broke just a couple hours before the game along with an anonymous quote from another player that Pelfrey ”cutting his own throat.”
Then Pelf went out had a rough first, settled down and was cruising until he took a liner off the elbow and was yanked.
Here are my thoughts:
Pelf spoke the truth. I’ve been saying the exact same thing since spring training. His mistake was saying that to a reporter.
As for the ”cutting his own throat.” line I don’t even know what that means other than someone didn’t like to hear that sentiment from a reporter.
But the fact remains the Mets weren’t equipped to win the WS this year and there’s nothing wrong with that.
But Pelfrey is having a tough year. He was slotted in way over his head as the team ace and didn’t respond well to the pressure. He’s shown flashes but no consistency so there’s bound to be frustration from all angles.
It’ll be interesting to see how the fanbase responds to this. My instinct is the reaction will be tepid. Fans generally like Pelf and I think we all know he’s being honest.
A solid W woulda helped but we’ll see…
