Pelfrey pitched in the only Subway Series I've been to live as of this post. It was him against Phil Hughes and I thought I was seeing the future of NY pitching lol.

I remember that game. Felt like there was something magical in the air. (There wasn't.) I have very fond "magical" memories as the result of guys who didn't end up panning out. It's sometimes good to remind yourself of the positive vibes you got from Kaz Matsui, or Roberto Alomar before he put on the uniform.

Kaz did have a magical debut.

Actually, he was magical in the first game of every season with the Mets.

In 2004 I had a blank Mets jersey I wanted to get customized. I had it narrowed down to Matsui and Reyes. The day after Matsui's first game, I sent that thing off to get it customized with #25, MATSUI. Not one of the better decisions I've made.

I remember being at Pelf’s first major league start and thinking much the same.

It seems to me he lived his life like a candle in the wind.

I always liked Big-Pelf. I know the numbers weren't there but he was a useful starter in 2008 and 2010 and 2012 he looked like he might have turned the corner, pre injury.

The mets using him in April 2007 and blowing all those games is on the mets, Omar and the Wilpons, not on him. They threw away a pennant by using him in that situation.

Didn't this guy make a ton of money off of two good months with the Mets?

Made $47 million in his career. For what, I am not really sure.

Good for him though.

15 million from the twins - 11-27 with a 0.4 war over 3 years.
15.5 million from the tigers (half a million paid by the whitesox), 4-10 with a 0 war.

Mets actually did OK with him. 15.8 million for 50-54 and a 6.4 war over 7 seasons. Not awful.

I was at that game too. I believe it was a double header against the Brewers. I remember sitting there thinking, man this guy seems like he's very hittable. Boy was I right....unfortunalty, I was right for the next 6 years.
