Unhappy Recap: Astros 8 Mets 4

Rough game for Pelfrey. In all three of his starts he's allowed a lot of base runners but somehow worked out of trouble. He allowed a run in the third and got some help from Wright in the 4th (threw out a runner at home, stepped on third to end the inning), but fell apart in the 5th.
He got hurt by some bad defense (Valentin dropped a ball maybe Beltran should have caught) but then he just got shelled. Three runs and three hits later, he was out of the game. Oliver allowed another run to score.

I think it's time for the Mets to demote Pelfrey and let him get some more seasoning in the minors. With the emergence of John Maine and the impending return of Pedro, Pelfrey is no longer needed.

I'm sick of Aaron Heilman's act also. Either he isn't very good or he's gone into a funk ever since the Mets started trying out Jose Lima and Jeremi Gonzalez in the rotation without giving him a chance. His jogging to first and getting beaten to the bag was inexcusable.

The one bright spot is Carlos Delgado. He Del-got another and seems a lock to hit 30 homers again.
