...great post from Mark Simon at ESPN New York on Bobby Parnell.
...while I love the unloading of K-Rod to prevent any monetary issues from holding the Mets back next season, Parnell is a serious step down from Rodriguez.
...Parnell is the only pitcher I know that can throw a 100 mph and make me nervous about getting pounded. He's inconsistent and I think has some confidence issues. But looks like Parnell will be given the opportunity to succeed or fail.
...the fan base's patience will be tested, especially if things get competitive in the Wild Card hunt.W2W4: Parnell's 2nd-half pitch - Mets Blog - ESPN New York
