The Mets left four less men on base than the Diamondbacks and they still lost 7-0. It was just one of the games, but it was horrendous nonetheless. The game was so bad, I thought a riot was going to break out as Koo left the mound because the fans must of been rabid. I seriously hope he does not know English to well. Despite the bullpen meltdown last night (by bullpen meltdown I mean Koo meltdown), they are still 8-6 with a 8.29 K/9. They are not the problem despite being the target of many media outlets. The problem is one big bat in the middle of the lineup that can consistently produce.
Kris Benson really pitched well, but Jose Reyes' non-error in the sixth killed him that inning and he was unable to pick Jose up. Being 21 he will make these mistakes, I just hope he is learning from them.
Best indications are they would go for Wichita State right-hander Mike Pelfrey, if he's available. But it's looking less and less as if Pelfrey -- a big, power pitcher with college polish -- will be around. The New York Mets are on him, as well, and they pick ninth, one spot ahead of Detroit.
While we are on draft buzz, the Mariners are seriously eying Troy Tulowitzki, the Pirates are looking towards Andrew McCutchen should he slip past the Mets, and Wade Townsend might be the Devil Rays top choice.
