Twitter was lit up during the game with ideas of sending Pelf down, and giving Gee his spot. Gee was not very good in relief of Pelf tonight, giving up a grand slam to Howard. I think it's time to do something dramatic with Pelf, whether it's sending him down, trading him, whatever it may be. This guy is in his 5th full year, and he still has not put it together and figured it out. Tonight, the Phils ran Pelf into the ground, and Pelf was visibly rattled by it. Not acceptable for a guy who, at this point, is a young veteran.
It does not get any easier, with Halladay and Lee up next. The Mets could lose those games, and the 6 game winning streak will be a distant memory. Bad feelings will be back, and Citi will be empty. Or, the Mets could find a way to win one or both, and maintain some credibility with the fan base. Which is it going to be, guys?
Ronny Paulino pinch hit in the ninth, and grounded out. This is notable because it proves that Paulino actually exists.
Oh, and the Mets are back in last place, behind the Nats. Willie Harris says he misses being a Nat. He says the Mets clubhouse is "segregated". Oh, Willie, you'll learn quickly that with that statement, you opened some old wounds.
