Official Starters and Line-Up Cards for Today's Game


GAME 2: 4/6/11 (7:05 PM)
Mike Pelfrey – Pelfrey started the season opener against the Florida Marlins for the Mets, and looked pretty mediocre. The right-hander tossed 4.3 innings while surrendering 4 H, 5 ER, 4 BB’s, and recorded 2 K’s. “Big Pelf” was a mixed bag last season for the Mets–often looking like the first round pick (see: March/April, August, and September/October), and just as often not (see: May, June, and July). Despite the two ends of the extremes, Pelfrey pitched an overall solid 3.66 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, 15 Wins, and 1.66 K/BB ratio in 204 IP last season, so expect the good with the bad again in 2011. (Career vs. Phillies: .278/.341/.424 line with a 6-4 record, 4.52 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 1.46 K/BB ratio)

Joe Blanton – Joe Blanton is the obvious black sheep in the Phillies rotation, but he’s far from sub-par. In 2.5 seasons for the Phillies, Blanton owns a 25-14 record, 4.38 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and 2.60 K/BB ratio. The portly right-hander was rumored to be on his way out of Philadelphia when the team signed Cliff Lee, but the Phils smartly kept him in the fold. Until the Phillies pick-up Walter Johnson, expect Blanton to respectably hold his own as the 5th starter. (Career vs. Mets: .228/.281/.345 line with a 3-1 record, 2.64 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 2.33 K/BB ratio)
