Game 1: Mets 7, Astros 0

John Maine's line from Game 1:

 IP   H   R  ER  BB  SO  HR   PC-ST   GS
9.0   4   0   0   1   4   0   98-67   82
Big start by Mr. Maine. He threw strikes, got ahead of hitters, and basically did what he wanted to against a sluggish Astros offense. With Pedro Martinez scheduled to come off of the disabled list this week or next, it'll be interesting to see how the back end of the rotation shakes out.

Mr. Met:

  • Hitting: Jose Valentin, 23.8% WPA
  • Pitching: John Maine, 21.5% WPA
Mr. Regret:
  • Hitting: Cliff Floyd, -3.1% WPA
  • Pitching: N/A

Game 2: Mets 4, Astros 3

Orlando Hernandez's line from Game 2:

 IP   H   R  ER  BB  SO  HR   PC-ST   GS
7.0   4   3   3   2   8   2  105-70   63
Through the first inning it looked like more of the same from El Duque as he allowed three runs to score. He settled down nicely after that, allowing nary a run in the next six innings and handing the lead over to the bullpen.

Mr. Met:

  • Hitting: Xavier Nady, 16.4% WPA
  • Pitching: Billy Wagner, 17.4% WPA
Mr. Regret:
  • Hitting: Jose Reyes, -8.7% WPA
  • Pitching: Duaner Sanchez, 12.7% WPA

Game 3: Astros 8, Mets 4

Mike Pelfrey's line from Game 3:

 IP   H   R  ER  BB  SO  HR   PC-ST   GS
4.1   6   5   5   1   3   0   81-43   33
Pelfrey was pretty bad, I have to admit. He said as much himself, that he basically had zero control over his secondary pitches and was forced to throw fastballs almost exclusively behind in the count. The Astros have some crummy hitters on their team, but not so crummy that they can't sit back and wait on old #1 to come zipping down the middle. Pelfrey will get another start this week, and then it'll likely be a toss-up between him and Maine to decide who stays and who gets sent back to the minors.

Mr. Met:

  • Hitting: Carlos Delgado, 29.6% WPA
  • Pitching: Darren Oliver, 1.2% WPA
Mr. Regret:
  • Hitting: Jose Valentin, -16.0% WPA
  • Pitching: Mike Pelfrey, -26.4% WPA
