In this week’s Mets Weekly Report I talk to Kerel Cooper of On The Black about several topics that have hit the news this week both on and off the field. First, Mike Pelfrey made some revealing comments to the New York Post that he thought it was unrealistic for anyone to think that the Mets had a chance at the playoffs in 2011. It’s not so much the content of his comments that’s the concern but the person making the comments. The Mets #1 starter this year talking about going into the season thinking they had no chance is a tough pill to swallow.
Next, we talk about Jason Bay’s recent hot streak. He’s a streaky hitter to start with but there’s still hope that he can get his act together and be the player the Mets thought they were signing two years ago. Bay still has two years left on his deal with the Mets so anytime he goes on even the slightest hot streak we all tend to think that maybe this is the time that he finally get back on track.
Check out the video below and let me know your thoughts on Pelfrey and Bay in the comments.
One thought on “Video: Mets Weekly Report – Mike Pelfrey and Jason Bay”
I agree with both yours and Kerel Coopers comments on Pelfrey's remarks and Bay's recent hot streak. Pelfrey is having a bad year after high expectations and he is with a team that has seen both their ace relief pitcher (Rodriguez) and stalwart centerfielder (Beltran) be traded away. I feel that Pelfrey's remarks were out of frustration but he's also, perhaps, opened the door for his exit from New York. Bay has not played up to potential since his signing. He's the weakest "power hitter" I've seen. He had some great years in Boston and Pittsburgh but since his arrival at CitiField his numbers, overall, are pretty dismal. I'd like to see the Mets and Bay part ways. Bay isn't the kind of player to rebuild around. Come to think of it, a negative attitude, such as the one Pelfrey displayed, isn't either. They both will most likely say goodbye to the Mets during the offseason.
