    Yeah -- if he makes a pitch to a couple dudes hitting under .250, it's all a moot point.

    He addressed this too. Said it changed the composure of the whole inning.

    I didn't know that Pelfrey was related to Chris Carpenter.

    I love the whole "airing their grievances line at the end. Grievances about what? That the umps got together, made the correct call, and you whined, moaned, and proceded to give up hits to 3 of our worst hitters?
    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.

    There's no way that ball hit the bat. I'm not sure if it hit Rolen either, but it definatley did not hit the bat.

    For the record, the Mets broadcasters agreed it was nowhere near his bat.

    Well Mike, I feel like you have a good career as a magician ahead of you... You took one run, and turned it into 6. Well done.

    At least when Cueto melts down, he knows it's his fault for letting things get to him. This kid is still blaming it on the call. He's got more growing up to do than Cueto...there's something about this Mets team I don't like. If a little call like that derails the whole game, they won't go far in the playoffs. More and more I'm thinking these Reds can go deep into the playoffs...they don't get shaken up, and when one guy falters two guys step up their game. I think with the Halladay game they turned a corner...they KNOW they can beat anyone now and they play like they expect to win. Even when they're down, you can see they don't expect to stay down. Ask Pelfrey if he wants some cheese with that whine.

    Mike Pelfrey isn't as good as his stats this year. Reversion to mean can be mean.

    Regardless of who's correct, Rolen should probably be on the lookout for a real pitch heading at him tonight.

    You think so? Even after the replays showed he was correct? I think Pelfrey needs to grow up, and get over it. Rolen did nothing wrong, he WAS hit by the pitch. If they hit Rolen, Wright better catch one on the flip side.

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

    It's ironic that Pelphrey said that Rolen might have a good acting career ahead of him because I thought when I watched the clip this morning that Rolen did a horrible job of selling it. Not when he started down the line believing he had been hit, but immediately when he was hit. A more specific response might have gotten the call right up front (note I said "might"). But Pelphrey needs to just move on. He let the game get away from him after that, which is fine by me.

    Yeah I thought that too. Rolen needs to watch more World Cup.
