2011 New York Mets Starting Rotation: An Optimistic Review

So we all have read that Johan Santana won’t be with us the first half of the season. This is a tough pill to swallow for New York Mets fans and to be completely blunt about it, I’m tired of the pessimism surrounding the New York Mets for this upcoming 2011 season from media and fans alike.

The world is not over! The season hasn’t even begun yet! It’s only December!

For my own piece of mind, here is what we are looking at for the 2011 starting rotation, and honestly, it’s not as bad as many of us think it is. Actually, it’s not that bad at all…

Mike Pelfrey
He’s got solid stuff, we know it and he knows it. Big Pelf just needs a little push over the edge to have the breakthrough year his 6’7” frame is capable of having.
He was definitely the best pitcher on staff last season, going 15-9 with a 3.66 ERA and that is including his horrible 0-3, 10.02 ERA July. Take that month away, and we would be looking at the 11th best pitcher in the NL going 15-6 with a 2.95 ERA.
Pelfrey has already shown that he can pitch like an ace, which makes 2011 that much more important for him.
Already tabbed the Opening Day starter by manager Terry Collins, Big Pelf has the rare opportunity to carry this pitching staff on his shoulders and lead them to a successful 2011 campaign.
Expect big things from Big Pelf in 2011.

Mets sign the Boof

The New York Mets today announced the signing of righthanded pitcher Boof Bonser to a minor league contract with an invite to major league Spring Training.

Bonser, 29, spent the 2010 season with the Boston Red Sox and Oakland Athletics, combining to go 1-0 with a 6.12 ERA (17 earned runs/25.0 innings) in 15 games out of the bullpen.  He started the season on Boston’s 15-Day Disabled List, before returning to pitch in two games for the Red Sox.  After being designated for assignment on June 18, the 6-4, 245-pounder signed a minor league deal with Oakland on July 3.  In 13 relief appearances for the Athletics, he won his only decision.

Bonser also pitched for Sacramento (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League and Pawtucket (AAA) of the International League in 2010, compiling a 2-3 record with a 5.59 ERA (35 earned runs/56.1 innings) in 14 games, 13 starts between the two stops.
