It’s part of the development of a young pitcher to control and harness his emotions. If Pelfrey thought the atmosphere was tense last week, imagine tonight in the Citi Field opener. There will be a buzz tonight people will talk about for years.
Not even the Mets’ 3-3 start will take the edge off. The hunch here is Pelfrey will be a fast study and keep his adrenalin in check.
Oh, and Luis Castillo will get treated nicely tonight.
Enjoy the day and we’ll see you tonight for Mets Chat Room.
