No, I’m not going to worry because a very young rookie fifth starter is having trouble finding his stride. There are so many options. He could find his stride. He could be sent down for more seasoning and one of the other young pitchers doing so well in New Orleans can come up. The Mets can afford to be patient.
Look at it this way. In the 2-1 victory on Tuesday night, the first four men in the lineup got 1 hit. In the Wednesday afternoon Pelfrey meltdown, they rebounded and got 8 hits.
As I said, a million ways to win.
