    Mike Pelfrey thinks Scott Rolen has a good acting career ahead of him

    Based on the overturned call this evening. Pelfrey just said it in the Mets post-game...and he wasn't joking. He was furious about the call and said Scott didn't know where it even hit him and there's no way it hit Scott's forearm.

    I think Mike Pelfrey's got a bit of a Carlos Zambrano streak in him.

    Look at the replay before you pop off Pelfrey.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Just tell him to check to tape. It's clear it didn't hit his bat.

    He can be upset the umps overturned the call, which has very little precedent, but he can't claim the ball was foul tip.

    And good pitchers overcome worse luck than that to win all the time.

    I thought it looked a little iffy in real time but the replay shows the ball change direction after hitting his arm. It was no where near the bat. Pelfrey needs to check the tape.

    For the record, I don't think Pelfrey claimed it hit Rolen's bat, I think he just was claiming it didn't hit Rolen's arm/jersey.

    The guy sounded like a big time sore loser, though.

    Rolen should invite him over so they can watch the replay together.

    He said in the post-game, he saw the replay and the umps got it completely wrong.

    Mets might want to have Pelfrey get his eyes checked then.

    It couldn't have been more obvious on replay. This kid needs to put a sock in it.

    Then that's clearly a case of the eyes seeing what they want to see.

    Wasn't even close in slow motion. The umps got it right.

    Wow, very poor stuff from Pelfrey. It doesn't get much worse than crybaby sore losers.

    I'm glad the Reds spanked him tonight.

    I guess it Rolen's fault Pelfrey gave up hits to Stubbs, Miller, and Wood too, huh?
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Good for him. I'm glad he feels that way. The Reds won and he lost though.
