Had a half day at work today, allowing me to come home and watch the Mets Fast Forward of yesterday's Mets/Reds game on SNY. All the shots of the prep-work construction for the new ballpark gets me very excited about being a Mets fan. The Mets having a great season, and they have a great future on the horizon. In fact, if you're sitting in the stands at Shea, the future is quite literally, on the horizon. See what I'm getting at?
The real reason I'm posting a bonus post is that Matty Cerrone has a post today that says the word on the scene is that Trachsel's back is acting up. Hmmmmm... If Trachsel, who is due to face the Blue Jays on Sunday, has to miss a start, that can only mean one thing. I won't mention any initials, but his name is Mike Pelfrey. Pelfrey is 3-1 in 10 starts with a 2.48 ERA for AA Binghampton this season. More telling is his 61 K's in 54 innings against 21 walks. Pelfrey last pitched for Binghamton on Tuesday, allowing just four hits, striking out six, leading the B-Mets to a 7-1 win over the Ohio Whogivesacraps. The point is that five days after Tuesday is Sunday.
You heard it here first. (Or second, depending on what I mean by what you heard).
