Last year, Mike Pelfrey’s season was all but a disaster. However, 2008 was much more promising. In 2008, Mike Pelfrey posted a 3.72 ERA while pitching two stellar complete games. In 2009, Pelfrey started off decent just like he did in 2008. When the injuries began to plague the Mets, Pelfrey’s season went down hill. While dealing with stress from the horrid season, as well as the birth of his new child Chase, Pelfrey had some mental issues that were distracting him from the task at hand.
When I went down to Spring Training in 2009, I saw a very motivated Pelfrey. He hustled and was putting in 110%, and I am certain that after a dismal 2009, he is going to head down to Port St. Lucie a different man. He is going to give 200% this season and I KNOW he is going to have a breakout year. I will try to contact Big Pelf and see what is going on with him, training wise and how he is preparing for 2010.
I believe with an improved offense and defense, as well as hopefully a pitching staff along with improved catchers, Big Pelf will have an outstanding season. I predict he is a 16 game winner while posting a 3.52 ERA and pitching 4 complete games. Look for success out of the big guy this year. The stars are all aligned for this man to breakout.
By the way, Brooklyn Met Fan is selling Go Big Pelf shirts. I myself am an owner of one and I highly suggest that every Met fan if they can afford the shirt, go out and buy one. Support your team and GO BIG PELF!
