Quote: Jerry Manuel on Mike Pelfrey

“[Mike Pelfrey] elevated a few pitches…You elevate off-speed pitches, especially in this ballpark, you’re going to pay for it.”

Jerry Manuel, after yesterday’s game

…pelf really only made two mistakes, and i thought he was ok other than that…he seemed to have inconsistent command overall, and a lot of his pitches were up in the zone throughout the day…that said, he seems to have figured out how to persevere and get through his starts without his best stuff…the thing is, there is no margin for error in that ballpark no matter who the opponent is, and Phil Hughes managed to limit his mistakes early and give his team a chance to win…
