beltran booted a ball in centerfield to let another run that shouldn't have scored score... but pedro's command has been excellent thus far, with the possible exception of the curveball

Curve will be tough to get a handle on after the layoff. But he's settled down...really if Beltran & Alou make the plays it could be 1 run, not 3. I only have XM, how does he/his stuff look?

he hit 90 on the gun in the 5th, he has a ton of movement on his pitches... the curve is the only thing that he wasn't hitting with consistancy. the changeup looks fantastic, he's throwing a very effective sinker and has been able to put his fastball up and in in the 88-90 range and get hitters out with it.

negative... a lot of fly balls, which pedro has more or less become a fly ball pitcher in his past few seasons since his velocity has dropped. problem is of course on the days that his command isn't on he could be knocked around with the long ball, which was exactly the case before the injury as well so that really hasn't changed much.

he's out with 76 pitches thrown and a 4-3 lead... at least two of those runs wouldn't have scored if the mets outfield defense didn't misplay two balls. plus he really came out cautious... his fastball was only hitting 81-82 against his first few batters... as he started getting more comfortable he raised the velocity up and there wasn't another hard hit ball the rest of the way, just a lot of lazy fly balls of various lengths.

and the best part of the outing of course is that he came off the field and did the funky chicken in the dugout

pedro's back.

Sounds good. You'd figure he might get another MPH or 2 on the fastball with a few more starts under his belt, if he can be sitting around 91-92 going into the playoffs that will be huge.

And yes, the M's are getting it done...altogether a good day, hopefully Dice-K can make it happen tonight.

i'd like to thank the phillies for pissing away the ground they made last week...

barring a colapse at cincinatti, mets up 5 games in the NL East.

pedro would like to thank you, too.

Well, 47 mil counting the other guy...around 65 with the baserunner. I think it would be hard to get 3 guys making more money playing baseball in one pic without posing them, you'd have to replace Ichiro with Manny or somebody but it's already the highest paid player & pitcher.

I despise the Mets, but, I am glad Pedro is back. I always loved watching him pitch.

Despisal is an exciting new word.

I hate the Red Sox much worse than the Mets, it should be noted, but I liked watching Pedro pitch with them as well.

The 1-hitter he pitched in NY when Chili got him for a HR and that was it, and he had 17? K's...that was just amazing pitching. Watching him from '98-'00 it was like he was on a whole other level than his competition.

He's even fun to watch when he's not pitching, the guy's a total cut-up.
