PITCHING MATCH-UPS

Game 1: 4/11/11 (7:10 PM)
Mike Pelfrey (0-1, 15.63 ERA, 2.68 WHIP, 0.60 K/BB): Mike Pelfrey was tabbed as the Mets “ace” before the reason, but he’s yet to look it. Pelfrey pitched 4.3 innings in his 2011 debut against the Marlins, giving up 4 hits, 5 earned-runs, 4 walks, and striking out 2. The right-handed looked even worse against the Phillies, hurling just 2 innings of 8-hit, 6 earned-run ball, walking 1, and striking out a batter. His 0.60 K/BB ratio on the season illustrates his command issues, but it would be shocking if the 27 year-old continued his woeful start for the entire season. (Careers vs. Rockies: .258/.333/.351 line with a 2.63 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 2.00 K/BB ratio)

Jason Hammel (1-0, 7.20 ERA, 1.80 WHIP, 0.67 K/BB): Hammel came over to the Rockies via the Tampa Bay Rays in an April 2009 trade. Despite posting a promising 4.33 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, 3.17 K/BB ratio in 2009, Hammel’s ERA ballooned to 4.81 in 2010, and even bounced an incredible 13 wild pitches too. He might no longer be the upper-tier starting pitcher the Rays formerly thought he’d be, but he’s settled-in as a respectable mid-to-lower-rotation option for the Rockies. (Career vs. Mets: .405/.400/.486 line with a 9.72 ERA, 1.92 WHIP, and 5.00 K/BB ratio)
