Just like Mike Pelfrey one day before, Chris Capuano is proving that he should not come anywhere near the Mets starting rotation in 2012. The Marlins battered Capuano around as they took game one of their three-game series, 9-3.
Capuano allowed six runs on eight hits, lasting just four innings. His ERA climbed to 4.63, tenth worst among qualifying starters in the National League. He’s also tied for tenth worst with 12 losses.
Hey Josh, got any Lotrimin Ultra?
D.J. Carrasco followed and was excellent as usual, allowing three runs (one earned) on a whopping seven hits in two innings. His pitching line would have looked far worse had it not been for two tremendous defensive plays that bailed him out of his first inning of work. Time to release him and his 5.40 ERA, regardless of the fact that he is signed for next year (smooth move Sandy Alderson).
Jason Bay added a meaningless two-run home run in the ninth to pad his impressive statistics.
It’s best to just forget about this one and move on.
