BASEBALL: In the Wings

Given the current state of the Mets juggernaut and the relative success of Alay Soler and (to a lesser extent) El Duque, the desperation to shore up the rotation further has dimmed. But when the time comes for another arm, especially if we're looking for help in middle relief (since I'm still skeptical of tossing him right in the rotation), Mike Pelfrey's AA numbers are starting look pretty good. I particularly like the 55-1 K/HR ratio (81-2 if you count A ball).

Actually, at the moment it looks like Trachsel is the first guy you'd want to replace, as he was hit hard again today. The good news is that this team is starting to look like it will soon be ready to think mainly about October (fingers crossed, expecting run of catastrophic injuries), so the desperation level should be minimized.
