Pitchers Can Be Funny

Phills. Good!

The things that resonated in tonight's game were related to pitching -- or were they?

Chan Ho Park, who I saw pitch in his only Mets game about two years ago (and had high seats in the upper deck at Shea - talk about double value) was lifted AFTER he intentionally walked a batter and had to face the pitcher next...AND, Charlie Manuel gave him the hook. What happened next? DrumRoll...Drama...

Pelfrey singled in a run.

I also got a chuckle when, as SNY-TV put it, a "left hander specialist" (Pedro Feliciano) got to bat. And, got to the bag ninety feet away via base on balls.

End result? Mets hold on to a victory.

Here's the box score....
