The Mets have one good bright spot for season 2011, that the young pitching which coming from the farm is looking real good. Dillon Gee in his first major-league debut took a no-hitter into the sixth inning until Met killer Willie Harris hit a home run to break it up. Gee allowed two hits and one run over seven innings in the Mets' 4-1 victory over the Nationals in front of 13 relatives and friends. He just struck out four and walked three, joining Brian Bannister and Randy Sterling as the only Mets who brought a no-hitter into the sixth in their Mets debuts. Dillon Gee was pretty good at Triple-A Buffalo this season, leading all of Triple-A with 165 strikeouts and going 13-8 with a 4.96 ERA. To see Gee pitch they a good future for the Mets starting rotation next season. The new young guns Gee, Niese, Mejia, and Pelfrey could turnover the Mets pitching for years to come. For this season the Mets pitching was much better, than the hitters put out there on the field this season. Mets fan don't forget about R.A. Dickey and Johan Santana. Look at the wins these pitchers have Gee 14 wins, Dickey 10 wins, plus three in Triple-A Buffalo, Santana 11 wins, Niese 9 wins, and Pelfrey 13 wins. Add Mejia to the mix if the Mets trade of these pitchers or put him in the bullpen. It don't look too good for K-Rod to play for the club next season.
