As far as fan base fuses go BMF believes the Shea Faithful have a pretty short fuse these days when it comes to patience.
So I’m sure there is a sizable contingency out there ready to throw their hands up at Pelfrey’s thoroughly unimpressive outing on thurs - 4R, 6H in 2.2 IP.
But if anyone needs reminding - and I’m speaking to myself, Big Pelf, and Met fans at large - YOU CAN’T PUT ANY STOCK IN a Week 1 spring outing.
So what if his pitches were flat? He was instructed to work on his slider so thats what he did.
Alls I’m saying is sit tight Met fans before you sour on Pelfrey. The dude has the talent he’s just gotta maintain focus and consistency and I’m a big believer fan support can be a deciding factor one way or the other.
Meanwhile Torres has come up sore… i guess that why you don’t begin stealing on the first pitch you see from first in spring afterall.
