I've been having a lot of fun this week pointing out that New York Mets starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey leads the team in wins and saves, but now it's time to get serious.

Obviously the saves part won't continue. Even if closer Francisco Rodriguez were to fall out of a taxi cab and stop pitching today, Pelfrey wouldn't be the fill-in. And don't worry, K-Rod owners, he's fine! Only a late Fernando Tatis home run Tuesday, extending a lead to cost him a save situation, prevented his first save of the season!
