Starting rotation not off to good start

Aside from Johan Santana and Livan Hernandez, the Mets starting rotation needs to be revamped. Pelfrey, Maine, and Perez all appear to lack the mental makeup needed.

Unfortunately, Mets management has failed to develop a farm system capable of producing quality starters. Aside from Pelfrey, Scott Kazmir, whom the Mets gave away, and Brian Bannister, who has a .500 record with KC this season, the Mets starting rotation has been primarily made of pitchers acquired from other teams.

In the Gulf Coast League, newly-drafted catcher had the best game of his short Mets career. Nelfi Zapata went 3-3, drove in two runs, and threw out a runner trying to steal second. In that game, the starting center fielder for the GCL Nationals was Lastings Milledge, who walked twice.
