Mets Catchers Barajas and Blanco Lead Pitching Staff

 General manager Omar Minaya credits the two new defensive-minded catchers Rod Barajas and Henry Blanco for leading the way with the young pitchers. Pelfrey 0.69 ERA., Niese 3.68 ERA., Perez 3.71 ERA. John Maine is still sleep walking. Maine has great stuff and good fastball. The Mets staff owns a 3.17 ERA, fifth lowest in the majors. The pitchers have notched 153 strikouts; in the majors, only the White Sox and Cubs have more. "Over their last 10 games, the Mets five regular starters(each starting twice) have fashioned a collective ERA of 1.39. It's the lowest ERA by Mets starters over a stretch of 10 games within a single season since July 1991, when Dwight Gooden, Frank Viola, David Cone, Ron Darling and Wally Whitehurst put together a 1.27 ERA over a 10-game span. Must give credit to Minaya for upgraded the catching. It really turn the pitching staff around. Never would think Pelfrey would be 4 and 0. John Maine must get on the right direction now.
