Brian Lawrence is 1-2 this year for the Mets with a lovely 6.31 ERA. He's given up 37 hits in a little over 25 innings pitched and has a WHIP bordering on 2.
This is the guy who's going to end the Mets slide. This is the guy Willie calls on to help his team turn things around yet again. This is the guy who needs to go 7 innings because our bullpen has had way too much work this past weekend. This is the guy.
I'm not saying Pelfrey is a way better option, but at least we know he's a young pitcher who's coming off a tremendous outing against the Braves.
The Mets bats better wake up tonight and put up a 5-spot in the first inning.
